New revenue requirement

Please note that Microsoft announced on October 27, 2020, that it will start enforcing its new revenue requirements for Direct Bill Partners starting January 1, 2021. The new revenue requirement is set at 300.000 USD annually, coupled with the existing active support package (15.000 USD annual minimum purchase price) requirement that also needs to be in place.

Direct Bill Partners who do not meet these requirements will have their direct bill capabilities restricted unless they transition to become an Indirect Reseller. This means you can no longer make new purchases for your customers, create new customer tenants in Partner Center or requesting for direct reseller relationships with your customers.

Current exception
Microsoft Direct Bill Partners with an active Service Provider License Agreement are exempt if:

They enrolled in the Qualified Multitenant Hosting (QMTH) Addendum program on or before November 2, 2020, and: Their CSP revenue was less than $ 300,000 in 12 months before their Advanced Support renewal data.
