This article provides information on the optimal time to submit a Coop Claim to ensure that the claim is included on the current month’s payment cycle.
Coop claims must be submitted and approved by Microsoft prior to the 14th of the month (11:59pm PST), in order to be included on the current payment month. Please note this is not guaranteed since it is dependent on validation results (e.g. accept/reject/request more proof) and your response to these requests (if applicable).
As a result Microsoft claim approval may take longer than 3 business days, therefore payments may not occur in the current month’s payment cycle. Microsoft recommends partners submit coop claims 15-30 days prior to this date to allow for any claim edits.
