Hey, how can we help?
Best practices - portal Tips & Tricks
We understand that it is vital to have a seamless portal usage experience and our team is working round the clock to improve and evolve the platform constantly. Additionally, we have prepared several tips&tricks that can be used to ensure our partners have a smooth experience while using the platform.
1. Browser choice
The platform is compatible with the most popular internet browsers, but it is advised to use Google Chrome for the best experience.
2. Incognito mode
Use Incognito mode by clicking on browser settings and choosing Incognito mode.
3. Clean cookies
Sometimes there can be information from your previous session stored in the browser cookies that might interfere with some of the functionalities. It is best practice to clear the browser cookies regularly or perform a hard refresh of the page by pressing F12 and right-clicking the browser refresh button.
4. One organization at the time
If you are working with several organizations, multitasking is not your friend. Keep only one organization profile open on your browser and close it, before logging in as other organization.
5. Give it some time
Large updates, such as, adding items to catalog are heavy processes and can take some time. Wait for some minutes before refreshing the page to see your changes applied.

New APIs released
AppXite is happy to announce the release of the new APIs that provide faster and more comprehensive interaction with the platform data and support external marketplace integration. The new APIs will enable partners to interact with the Catalog, Offer Prices, Subscriptions, Microsoft Tenants, and Custom Properties.
Reporting API can return detailed invoice line items. With this functionality, you can have the flexibility to leverage a simplified view with consolidated invoice line items and when necessary, switch to granular invoice details. As such, it is easy to obtain an overview of charges across different subscriptions and access details of pro-rated charges when needed.
These APIs will allow you to get your platform catalog of offers and display it outside the platform. For instance, you can build your own marketplace as a customer-facing UI with the catalog of offers being displayed and available for purchase, whereas the platform will be used as a back-end functionality.
These APIs will allow you to place and provision orders programmatically. As a result, you can use your own marketplace and/or CRM/ERP to place and provision orders on the platform.
These APIs will allow you to collect subscription data and manage subscriptions outside the platform (e.g. in your ERP/CRM and/or marketplace).
These APIs will allow you to validate and create Microsoft Tenants programmatically. This will allow you to incorporate the Microsoft tenant management functionality in your offer purchase flow.

Detailed Invoice Line Items
In order to see detailed invoice lines as issued by the Vendor on AppXite platform, it can be enabled via UI and by using API.
When enabled, invoice rows for each subscription are broken down into separate fees that more accurately reflect subscription changes during the billing period.
For example, you will be able to see the amount charged for 30 licenses in the first 10 days of the month before the quantity change, and the amount charged for 40 licenses in the remaining 20 days of the month.
This helps partners and their customers to more easily understand and explain the amount in the invoice with full confidence.
Users can choose if they want to see invoice data in aggregated or detailed format. Additional invoice details that are displayed are based on the data directly from the vendor.
On UI level:
In order to see the prorated invoice details on UI for incoming or outgoing invoices, you should go to the invoice section and open the respective invoice to see details:
In the invoice details as per screenshot above, on the right side is the toggle button "Show details" (off by default), which is used to see the prorated fees:
- When enabled, the subscription invoice data includes a row for each interval of prorated fees, with actual dates and quantity. The details will be present in the table of the respective invoice page and in the downloadable excel file.
- When disabled, the subscription details will show the quantity and the final amount of the changes within the billing period in one consolidated amount. The subscription line will be accordingly present in the table of the respective invoice page and in the downloadable excel file.

From the Subscription tab, click on the questioned offer.
1)NCE offer will have fields Term Duration and Billing Cycle, where Legacy offer will have only the Billing Cycle
2)Legacy offer will also include field called Unit price
When looking at the product catalogue, you can easily distinguish NCE offers from non NCE by looking at the icon. All NCE offers have "NCE" written on the upper left corner of Microsoft icon. See the examples below.
non NCE offer:
How to distinguish between offers by contract type?
Open Invoice section and look at the contract type. "Azure Plan & One time" contracts are for NCE offers.
How to distinguish between offers in Invoices?
Open Invoice section and choose any invoice you would like to verify
Once you have the invoice details, slide the ruler to the right side till "Vendor offer ID". For NCE offers the vendor reference number starts with capital or lower case "CFQ".
!Note if you do not see "Vendor offer ID" tab, it can be enabled on the upper right corner of invoice view
How to distinguish NCE offers in Subscription report?
Subscription report contains filters to distinguish NCE offers from non-NCE. If "Is NCE" tab record displays "true", the selected offer is NCE. You can filter the subscriptions on the left side in "Microsoft NCE" section.
How to distinguish between offers while using "Search" in catalogue?
At the moment there are situations where duplicate offer names appear in the search results as one of them is NCE and the other is non-NCE. This is because the product names are imported from Microsoft directly and the titles are not distinguishable. This situation is going to solve itself in few months once the all the legacy offers will be discontinued. In meantime we are preparing a workaround to amend the situation - tags will be added to the product names. Follow the product releases to not to miss this update!

1. When will the Platform become available?
AppXite Platform will be available right after a user (1) completes the onboarding step and (2) confirms that the Platform is configured according to their preferences.
2. What is White-Label Branding?
This means that a user's Platform is branded under their logo, name, and other relevant designs accessible via URL.
3. What is White-Label billing?
When a Platform is set up and begins scaling sales, users often consider reducing administrative workloads by having AppXite take over customer billing. This means they utilize AppXite's White-Label Billing as-a-Service. This service generates invoices on behalf of the data generated in your Platform and sends it to customers.
4. What is the Platform's availability?
AppXite's ultimate goal is providing full platform functionality 24/7/365.
This means effecting updates in a manner that affects business using the platform as little as possible. Now, the platform may have downtime consisting of two service windows per month - for a total of 4 hours. AppXite will notify sellers 2 (two) business days in advance of such service windows via e-mail. Additionally, AppXite takes commercially reasonable efforts to minimize everyone's risk exposure by making these service windows Saturday mornings 8:00 - 10:00 GMT +3.
5. My business collects customer data, including personal data. What should I do to ensure compliance with data protection laws, including GDPR?
First, ensure there is a valid legal basis for processing. Then, maintain an appropriate level of information security within your company. This means that processing activities must be transparent; sufficient information is regularly provided to customers regarding the processing of their data. For further information visit our Privacy Hub.
This way, we ensure that we can collect payments from resellers.
6. Can I sell my own solutions via the AppXite platform?
Yes. Additional offers can be added to the Platform by using Platform functionalities for configuring offers. You can also appoint AppXite to act as your distributor; launching your products through our network of resellers connected to the Platform.

There is a 2-way synchronization between the Microsoft Partner Center and the AppXite Platform. Therefore, certain information can be edited in either location with both being updated. However, it is important to understand that once customer information has been synchronized with the platform, the only Billing information should be updated in Microsoft Partner Center. All other information must be updated on the platform to avoid problems with synchronization.

Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCuA)
This article will describe, how to accept Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCuA) through the platform. Microsoft Customer Agreement in CSP program will replace Microsoft Cloud Agreement starting from January 31st, 2020. Read more here.
Q: What is the new process for confirming customer acceptance of the Microsoft Customer Agreement?
We have enabled function for sellers and their customers to accept new terms of MCuA.
When purchasing new MS subscription or renewing existing, or adding additional licenses for existing subscriptions seller and/or customer will have to accept terms, there will be pop-up window in the portal where one will enter their contact details – email, name, surname, phone number (optional) and click on "I Agree":
NOTE! We do not provide these terms on the platform. The platform acts only as a place of acceptance, therefore, terms should be read before they are accepted in our platform. To find region-specific Microsoft Customer Agreement customer templates in all supported languages, see Microsoft Customer Agreements by region and language.
The first step is to log in to the platform and starts purchasing and/or renewal. Before BUY, a pop-up will appear where one will need to accept the terms. If terms have not been accepted in the platform, sellers and/or customers will not be able to purchase, renew and add licenses.
Things to keep in mind:
- MCuA should be accepted in the portal by end-customer;
- MCuA can be accepted on behalf of the customer only when a customer has given his acceptance to do so;
