Reach more customers, simplify sales, and unlock growth with Multiparty private offers

One of the biggest Microsoft commercial marketplace releases in July was enabling Microsoft's ISV partners to sell through their broader network of partnerships with multiparty private offers on the marketplace. This go-to-market offering is now generally available for partners selling to United States customers and is open to any Microsoft partner enrolled in commercial marketplace with a verified United States tax and payout profile. Canalys research suggests nearly one-third of marketplace purchases will come through partners by 2025.
