Here are a few hot topics this week around CSP. Enjoy!
What would happen if I sell myself Office Pro Plus through my own CSP authorization? Can I do that?
No. You cannot sell yourself Office 365 Pro Plus licenses. You can purchase it through any volume licensing program or through another CSP provider. Might be a good way to check out the competition support processes though!
If you are CSP authorized in Australia, but have customers in UK, can you resell Office 365 through CSP?
No. You can only resell in the region in which you are authorized.
If my end customer purchased Office 365 Pro Plus through Volume Licensing, can I host it from my datacenter if I am QMTH authorized?
Yes. The end customer can purchase from any licensing program as long as it is Office 365 Pro Plus version. As the service provider, you must be QMTH authorized.
If I purchase CSP licenses indirectly from my distributor, do I qualify for QMTH?
No. You must CSP Direct authorized in order to that. You cannot purchase from a distributor and offer VDI or Office Pro Plus.
If I sell Azure through CSP, how do I know which region my data is located?
With Azure, you get to pick the region.
If I sell Office 365 through CSP, which region is my service hosted from?
The address on the invoice determines the location of the services.

Comment on Q1 – if a CSP partner wants to purchase seats for himself in CSP for his own tenant, which happens to be “the CSP” tenant (meaning – the one used for managing CSP customers), he cannot purchase from another CSP partner. The CSP-enabled tenant will not allow this. He can only purchase CSP licenses for another tenant. Meaning – the CSP partner would then have 2 different tenants – one as a CSP customer and the other as a CSP partner.
