Want to sell Office 365 via VL?

Starting 9/1 you can now do so.  Also keep in mind that you don’t have to sell 5 of the same thing.  You can sell one of the thing you want and four more of the cheapest thing on the price list.


Add 4 cals of Forefront – with a sku code of 37D-00101 .  Or sell a Windows 2012 Essentials server.  Remember too that R2 of Essentials is expected to RTM at the same time as Server 2012 R2 is and will be available in October along with all the rest of the releases.

    Ok, but what kind of margins are there on VL versus POR signups?

    Is it worth the hassle?

    Keep in mind also that you can issue trials from the partner page and convert them to paid subscriptions really easily. It literally only takes a few minutes to issue a trial or subscription and the customer can sign up and get access to it almost immediately. Of course, domain setup might take more time, but you can set up temporary forwarders and such.

    I wish you could do self-serve volume licenses online.
