Indirect Resellers purchasing Microsoft 365 Services for their own use
Microsoft has limited the possibilities for the Indirect Resellers to purchase Microsoft 365 Services through CSP channel for their own use.
According to Microsoft:
An Indirect Reseller may have following possibilities to purchase Microsoft services for own use:
1. Direct purchase from Microsoft
2. Working with a CSP partner as end-customer. Please keep in mind that when he is working with an Indirect Provider only one kind of relationship may be established. He cannot be end-customer and Indirect Reseller for the same Indirect Provider. In case he'd like to work with the same Indirect Provider, we recommend to create/use another tenant as end-customer tenant.
3. They may have some benefits via ActionPack https://partner.microsoft.com/en-au/partnership/action-pack. For details, they'd have to contact the MPN Team via Partner Center by themselves.
Some discussions on this topic are also contained in the Microsoft Partner Community:
