Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE)

Microsoft New Commerce Experience (NCE) is a modern commerce platform that enables customers to purchase and manage Microsoft products and services. NCE offers a pay-per-seat model, which allows customers to purchase licenses for specific users or devices, rather than paying for a set amount of services upfront.

Under the pay-per-seat model, customers can purchase licenses for Microsoft products and services on a per-user or per-device basis. For example, a customer could purchase licenses for Microsoft Office 365 for their employees, paying a set fee for each user license. This allows customers to pay only for the services they need, without having to purchase a set amount of services upfront.

Microsoft NCE is closely related to the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, which is a partner program that enables partners to sell Microsoft cloud products and services to customers. The pay-per-seat model in Microsoft NCE is designed to work seamlessly with the CSP program, allowing CSP partners to manage their customers’ Microsoft subscriptions and billing, and to provide support and services to their customers.

CSP partners can use Microsoft NCE to purchase and manage licenses for their customers, and can bill their customers for the licenses on a monthly or annual basis. This allows partners to provide their customers with a flexible and cost-effective way to purchase Microsoft products and services, and to manage their subscriptions more efficiently.
