PCN or Supplier ID

I tried to access https://www.microsoftreadiness.com/en

To request access, I need to register and provide PCN or Supplier ID.

Inquiry : Is PCN or Supplier ID the same with MPN ID ?

 

Thank you so much.

Dear @Andra,

 

Update : I just got information from our purchasing that the company has PCN.

 

PCN is different from MPN ID.

 

Thank you for the help.

 

Kind regards,

Solusi

I would defer to @Sasolusi to kindly advise, my understanding here (and I might be wrong ☺) is from their internal purchase department, i.e. someone with proper access in Partner center (admin, MPN partner admin etc.) to manage subscriptions and other purchases etc.

 

Thank you,

Andra

And where i can find it now? 😄

Microsoft

Your PCN would be known to somebody from where you obtain licenses from. Partner Center afaik does not display a PCN for yourself. In VLSC it should be listed on the license statements you have, or simply ask the seller of the agreement. You can also contact our Partner Development Manager (account team) at Microsoft - and the VLSC support.

 

Also I checked https://www.microsoftreadiness.com/en - I could not see where a PCN or Supplier ID would be required, it did just ask to log in as MPN registered Partner (And MPN registration did also not require this info).

Kind regards,

Hello,

 

We need help to locate our PCN (public customer number). We can't find the PCN in our partner portal and VLSC... 

 

Do you know where we can find it?

 

Thank you so much.

Hello @Sasolusi ,

 

PCN (Public Customer Number) is the number Microsoft allocates to your organisation as a partner. It is required to access the application.

Please contact the Microsoft Operations primary point of contact within your organisation if you do not already know this number.

 

Is your company registered in the Microsoft Partner Network ? If not, this is the best place to start, in order to get access : https://partner.microsoft.com/en-US/membership

 

Thank you,

Andra

Hello @Andra,

 

Yes, the company registered in the Microsoft Partner Network, so I have the MPN ID.

 

Is MPN ID same with PCN or Supplier ID?

 

Thank you,
