Update: How do Microsoft partners sign up to sell Office 365?

J.J. Antequino


I just wanted to send a quick little update on the fastest way for partners to start selling Office 365 and how they can become eligible to receive fees for selling Microsoft Online Services.

It all comes down to signing the Microsoft Online Services Partner Agreement… otherwise known as the MOSPA.

In years past, we had a program called Cloud Essentials that helped get you started…. and we still have ways to get there through the MPN website, but honestly, unless you know where exactly to go, it gets a little confusing.

First of all, you may have already signed the MOSPA and don’t even remember Smile

If you have just signed up as a new Microsoft Partner, you should have seen the following:

MOSPA during enrollment-CropCircle

If you had checked that box, then you’ve already signed the MOSPA!

However, if you did not check that box or joined the Microsoft Partner Network before we added the checkbox, you no longer have to worry about navigating or finding your way to the MOSPA.

All you need to do now is go to:


This will redirect you to the Microsoft Online Services status page for partners:

MOSPA Status

From here, you can verify that the account you’ve logged in with has actually enrolled in the Partner Network, sign the MOSPA, complete the required Tax and Banking documentation, and Associate with a Cloud Channel Developer Distributor like Ingram, Tech Data, Synnex, or D&H.
