Silver Partner Incentives after September 30th?

Brass Contributor

Dear team,

One of our partners wants to renew his Silver Partner membership for one more year before September 30th. If he renews before this date, will he still receive incentives (rebate and coop) for another 12 months, or do the incentives stop after September 30th when Solutions Partner Designations will take over? I hope someone can clarify.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @NisChristiansen,

 

As I understand it, you continue to receive incentives even if you renew the Legacy Benefits if you had gained the Legacy competencies:

Dear Claudio,
I understand. However, the reseller can renew his Silver Partner membership in two days. If he renews, will he receive incentives for another 12 months? Or, will he only receive incentives till September 30th, 2023?

@NisChristiansen ; just to confirm. Yes, even after 30th of September 2023 you'll still earn incentives based on Legacy competencies. 

The FY24 incentives guides are already online for review: Microsoft Commerce Incentive Resources

 

This one is for Modern Work incentives.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. :)
Just a quick note though, might have impact on your case.

As of 1st of October 2023 a Revenue Requirement has been introduced for partners earning incentives. A partner must now at least make $25K revenue per year for them to be eligible to earn incentives. If the partner makes less that that threshold, they will not earn any incentives, even if they have a Designation/Competency,

This is new compared to FY23 incentives guide.

@NisChristiansen 

 

If I understand the question correctly, you can use product keys for one year from the day you redeem the keys on their respective cloud portals if you renew and have an ongoing membership enrollment active.

 

You can review the "Renew your Membership offers for Solutions Partner designations during the renewal window" document, or the Solutions Partner FAQs in Partner Center for more information.

 

To add,  Partner incentives will continue to accept legacy silver or gold benefit renewals in FY24. Partners should reference the FY24 guide on aka.ms/partnerincentives to review competency/designation requirements on each individual earning opportunity.
