Microsoft delays deadline to shift to NCE subscriptions indefinitely
Microsoft deadline for its previously announced 11 July 2022 Friday to block auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions, one part of the New Commerce Experience (NCE) changes, is now indefinitely delayed.
Microsoft has announced that it is delaying the deadline for its New Commerce Experience changes, which included a block on auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions. This change will now be indefinite, giving customers more time to transition to the new NCE platform.
Microsoft delays deadline for blocking auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions
Microsoft has announced that it is delaying the deadline for blocking auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions. This change is part of the company's New Commerce Experience (NCE) changes.
Microsoft had originally announced that the deadline for blocking auto-renewals would be July 31st. However, the company has now decided to indefinitely delay this deadline. Microsoft says that it needs more time to fully transition customers to the new NCE platform.
This means that customers who are still using legacy CSP subscriptions will be able to continue doing so for the time being. Microsoft has not said how long this transition period will last. However, it is likely that the company will eventually set a new deadline for blocking auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions.
What this means for Microsoft customers
This change means that Microsoft customers who have legacy CSP subscriptions will no longer have them automatically renew. Instead, they will need to manually renew their subscriptions. This change will not affect customers who have already transitioned to the New Commerce Experience. Microsoft has not given a new deadline for this change, so it is unclear when it will take effect.
This change could cause some inconvenience for Microsoft customers with legacy CSP subscriptions. They will need to remember to renew their subscriptions manually, which could be easy to forget. Microsoft has not said how long customers will have to renew their subscription after it expires. It is also unclear if there will be any grace period for customers who forget to renew their subscription.
Overall, this change from Microsoft could cause some inconvenience for customers with legacy CSP subscriptions. Microsoft has not given a clear timeline for when this change will take place, so customers will need to keep an eye on their subscription expiration date.
How the NCE changes will affect Microsoft's CSP partners
The New Commerce Experience (NCE) changes announced by Microsoft will have a significant impact on the CSP partners. The most notable change is the block on auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions. This change will come into effect from July onwards, and will have a major impact on partners who rely on auto-renewals to keep their business running smoothly.
Microsoft has announced that it is indefinitely delaying the deadline for this change. This means that partners will have more time to adjust to the new system and make sure that their business is not affected. However, it is not clear how long this delay will last, so partners must still be prepared for the change to come into effect at some point in the future.
The NCE changes will also impact other areas of Microsoft's CSP program. For example, partners will no longer be able to offer discounts on Office 365 products. This could make it difficult for partners to compete with other providers of Office 365 products.
Overall, the NCE changes will have a significant impact on Microsoft's CSP partners. Partners must be prepared for these changes and make sure that their business is not affected.
Questions and answers about the NCE changes
Microsoft has announced that it will be making changes to the way that its Commerce Platform (CSP) works. The changes, which are part of the New Commerce Experience (NCE), will affect the way that subscriptions are renewed.
Previously, subscriptions were automatically renewed on a monthly basis. However, under the new system, subscriptions will only be renewed if the customer explicitly opts in to do so. This change will take effect from July onwards.
Microsoft has said that the reason for this change is to give customers more control over their subscription renewals. The company has also said that it will be providing more clarity on the NCE changes in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, customers who have questions about the NCE changes can contact Microsoft support for more information.
The Microsoft deadline for its previously announced 11 July 2022 Friday to block auto-renewals of legacy CSP subscriptions, one part of the New Commerce Experience (NCE) changes, is now indefinitely delayed. This means that customers who want to continue using their current CSP subscription will be able to do so without having to worry about their service being interrupted. However, it is important to note that Microsoft may still eventually implement this change, so customers should keep an eye on announcements from the company.
