Microsoft New Commerce Experience

 

 

Microsoft New Commerce Experience Simplified.

Microsoft has changed how companies purchase licenses, replacing their Cloud Service Provider (CSP) program with their New Commerce Experience (NCE) program, a program that provides options for both month-to-month flexibility and long-term commitments for price protection.

 

Cloud Service Program (CSP)

Commitment and Payment Options:

  • Monthly
  • Annual

Consult with a Dynamic Quest sales representative to discuss upfront and monthly payment options and benefits.

Cancellation Policy:

  • Immediate upon stopping billing and prorated refunds available during agreed upon term.

New Commerce Experience (NCE)

Commitment and Payment Options:

  • Monthly
  • Annual
  • Tri-Annual

Consult with a Dynamic Quest sales representative to discuss upfront and monthly payment options and benefits.

Cancellation Policy:

  • Cancellation available within first 72 hours of term, with a prorated refund.

Key Dates to Remember

January 1, 2022

Clients may request subscriptions to be migrated from the legacy CSP platform to the NCE platform over time (see key dates below).

January 1, 2022 – June 30, 2022

As an incentive, Microsoft will keep monthly NCE subscriptions at the “annual” rate (i.e.: without the 20% premium) through June 30, 2022.

  • However, any price hikes (such as the March 1, 2022, described below) will still be applied.
  • Starting July 1, 2022, the 20% premium will be applied.

March 1, 2022

Microsoft will raise the price on 6 subscriptions by roughly 15%. To lock in current pricing, annual or tri-annual agreements should be signed by February 28, 2022.

March 10, 2022

All new subscriptions must be NCE.

July 1, 2022

All renewal subscriptions must be NCE.

  • Some Microsoft subscriptions will have a 20% upcharge on monthly billing agreements.
  • Unmigrated CSP subscriptions will be disabled.
