When will I receive my incentives

This article provides clarification on the requirements to receive the incentives for Channel Developer program, as well as the payment disbursement period.
More information
Once a partner has met all the eligibility criteria, as well as the Incentive Requirements, he/she must also meet the final requirement in order to get paid for his/her accruals.


Partner must submit tax documentation (US, LATAM and Canada-based Partners)

- Collection of the appropriate tax documentation must be complete before any incentives can be released to a Partner with address in US, Latin America or Canada. Without these documents, Partners will not be able to receive incentive payments.

- Additional details on how to submit tax information is available in the FY15 Channel Developer Incentive Implementation Guide (see useful links at the end of this article).

Earnings Statements

- Incentive-eligible Partners will receive an incentive earnings statement with each quarterly payment that includes information on subscriptions where they are the POR and earning incentives.
- Payment will be disbursed to the Partner along the following schedule:

 Payment Schedule

Minimum threshold

- If the incentives earnings are below the minimum threshold (please refer to the Incentive Guide for more details regarding the minimum threshold), the Partner will not receive a statement for that quarter. 

- Earned incentives below the threshold will be placed on hold until subsequent earnings will exceed the threshold at which point payment will be disbursed to Partner.
