Completion of the “Business Eligibility Requirements” triggers new partner onboarding. The two-step onboarding process begins with (1) receiving an invitation from Microsoft Operations, (2) onboarding to the incentives tool and completing partner bank and tax profile information.

Business Eligibility Requirements

Upon completing business eligibility requirements, partners new to CSP incentives must enroll in the Partner Center incentives tool and complete the bank and tax profile (invite required). Completing the Business Eligibility Requirements (above) triggers the eligibility and onboarding process. Partners can expect to receive their onboarding invitation to their incentives tool within thirty (30) days of completing all business eligibility requirements. For existing partners who lose one or more of the eligibility requirements during a semester, the at-risk eligibility component must be resolved otherwise incentive earning may be suspended during the period(s) of ineligibility.

Please note that having existing or previous enrollments in other incentive programs does not negate the eligibility requirement to provide a bank and tax profile for this CSP incentive program.
