Retired Offer(s) ID

This article about Retired offer(s) ID applies to all Sellers.

Retired offer means that you cannot provision license anymore and this license is not in the current Vendor’s pricelist. The pricelists are usually publicly available on Vendor’s websites or are published in Vendor’s site. The latest information regarding Microsoft offers is usually received through several communication channels (like Microsoft Partner Center announcements and Microsoft Yammer group).

When Microsoft subscription is provisioned, the price is fixed for 12 months, however, when the subscription renews after the 12-month period, the price will also be updated if there was a change in the previous 12 months. This means that when those subscriptions were renewed, the price was updated to the current price. For example, you have provisioned the subscription in January 2019. The new price will start from January 2020.

AppXite informs its Sellers regarding retired offers. To be up-to-date with the latest subscription pricing and to take benefit from Microsoft offers with the latest features AppXite recommends to Sellers provision licenses as per the newest pricelist and suspending the old ones.
