For qualifying sales of Microsoft Office 365 through Open or Advisor from April through June, you may be eligible for an incremental 8% payout through either the Online Services Advisor incentive program or through a one-time Open incentive payment.
We have added an incremental 8% payout to the existing 12% Online Services Advisor incentive program sell fee for eligible sales of Microsoft Office 365 from April 1 through June 30, for a total payout of 20% sell incentive. This incentive will be paid on all eligible new Office 365 seats sold by advisors during this time period. Other Advisor incentive rates remain unchanged.
Open Value and Open License incentives
A one-time 8% payout is also available for eligible sales of Microsoft Office 365 through Open from April 1 through June 30. An Open payment will automatically accrue for your Office 365 Open sales during this time period. Qualifying partners with Open sales of Office 365 will receive an email in July with the option to accept the terms and conditions for the accelerator. Once the terms and conditions are accepted, payout will be processed in mid- to late August.
Partners who participate in an SMB Incentive Program will automatically have the incremental 8% payout included as a separate line item in their normal payment for April 1 through June 30 sales.
