Customers will be able to purchase perpetual licences on CSP from January 2021. This means that you will be able to purchase your on-premises and cloud subscriptions under one agreement through a single provider.

What does this mean for…

Indirect Resellers?

  • You can sell on-premises perpetual licences through the CSP offer catalogue
  • You make a one-time, upfront payment
  • You facilitate the procurement. Your customers manage licence key access, activation and product fulfilment through Microsoft 365 Admin Center
