Azure Gov offer

Brass Contributor

I have published our first Azure Gov marketplace offer (we have several in the Commercial marketplace). Are there any differences in the payout process or timing? Are there any differences between Azure Gov marketplace offers and commercial marketplace offers that we should be aware of?

@amoldalvi congratulations on publishing your offer to the marketplace. 

 

In terms of earnings payouts, I do not believe there is any documented difference between the Commercial marketplace and the Government marketplace. Differences in customer agreement types and usage-based revenue compared to SaaS orders can have differences in payout schedules. See Payouts overview - Partner Center | Microsoft Learn

 

There are differences in terms of the types of offers that can be transacted through Azure Government Marketplace compared with commercial as well as compliance requirements. In terms of how you sell, the government marketplace currently supports private plans, while commercial marketplace supports both private plans and private offers. See FAQ comparison

@kyle-callahan thanks for the input, that is all correct.

 

@amoldalvi there are no known differences in the current partner payout process regarding gov offers. The general details of the process can be found in this article: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-center/payout-policy-details
