@Abu-Bakr : Yes, this is possible, there is no limit on how many distris/indirect Providers you can use. You can even sell licenses via different distris to the same customer

Hello,

 

I would like to become an authorized reseller to be able to resell Windows and Office keys locally in my country - Bulgaria and internationally - on ebay. Who shall I turn to?

 

I have a registered company.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hello DS2,

 

I don't think selling licenses on Ebay is a great idea and just selling the keys without a license is illegal. My advice if you want to resell Microsoft's licenses and services is to contact a distributor such as TechData and Ingram Micro and sign up as a reseller.

How can I become a reseller for the HoloLens 2 hardware in the US? I have read the become a mixed reality partner web page, it recommends becoming a Microsoft Partner. I found the device reseller page, but it mentions nothing about HoloLens or mixed reality requirements. I also saw that Ingram Micro is the distributor for HoloLens do I have to go through them?

Hi, 

I am looking for reseller status in India for Microsoft Software/ hardware, licenses and services. Can i write an email or speak to someone who can clear my doubt to secure the reseller/ partner status?  This will help a lot.

Hi Pradip,

 

Thanks for your question. In order to become a reseller of Microsoft service and products you will need to have a registered company and sign up as a reseller with one of the distributors in India like Ingram Micro or TechData. It is a fairly easy process.

Hi @rchapman12,

Hi,

Can someone help me with the procedure to become a Surface Laptop reseller in the US & India?

Also, can you please suggest the ways to become a re-seller like Ingram or TechData

Thank you.

Hi Rohit,

 

TechData and Ingram are distributors and not resellers. They sell only to resellers and never direct to end-customers.

 

My advise is that you contact one of them and ask to become a reseller. As part of their requirements they will require you to have a company registered. As you mention USA, please note that if you want to sign up as a reseller in the US you will need to have a company registered in the US.

Hey there, how can i get the agreement or a license to sell windows10 and office keys on ebay 

 

PerWerngren

Hi Oussa, I would say that selling Windows 10 on Ebay is probably not a wise choice. The suggested path is that you sign up as a reseller with a local distributor in your country (like TechData or Ingram). That way you will be able to provide Microsoft's licenses and services to your customers. But there is little business just selling if you don't add some value yourself. The ones that successful add their own knowledge (often called IP - Intellectual Property) and craft services that customers are willing to pay for and that will give you a nice margin so that you can build a viable business.

 

Hope this helps!

How want to Microsoft software reseller agent in Houston texas. How could I register and what does it entail.

Hi Edward, thanks for asking!

 

TechData or Ingram Micro in USA will be able to help you set up as a reseller for Microsoft services and software through the CSP program. They are both great to deal with!

 

This will allow you to resell but to be honest, it is almost impossible to build a business on this alone. I suggest that you add a portfolio of services as that is how you make a great margin.

Hi ,

I wonder if I can re-sell in regions outside the country I am initially registered in ? is there any limitation? Do I need to be legally registered as a company in the new market I am targeting or I can use my home country registration? Thanks

Hi Abu-Bakr,

 

It all depends of where you're located and which country you're aiming for. The general answer is that you can often sell to customers inside your own region which often means neighboring countries but there are boundaries. I suggest that you talk to your local distributor and ask them.

Hi Mictsa,

 

I think that you should contact a distributor in your country. TechData or Ingram Micro are present in many countries but you might have others in your specific country.

 

The licensing program that is most popular right now is called CSP.

Hello sir, 

 

i have completed everything including registration and business authorization

 

submitted all business articles, 

 

all documentation and taxation document completed

how long does this process take, i am pending all funds that i have made due to this issue

i have also applied to ingram

is there a right way to be an official reseller since i have already gone through the entire process and i am still waiting of my feedback?

Hi @Beatgaud !

 

The decision to approve a reseller lies on the distributor side. Don't know your geography but you should expect a reply within a few days from Ingram.

 

The process to enroll in the Microsoft Partner Network is also important and it takes only a few minutes to enroll at the basic level which is free.

 

Welcome onboard!
