== Creating a customer in the TERRA Cloud Center==
We have prepared a video for you for this purpose. You can download and watch the video on the following link: <br>
+
End customers are always created in the TERRA CLOUD Center (www.terracloud.de).<br>
https://drive.terracloud.de/getlink/fiA5mB9qCXk3M4X4zu2dzh9g/04_Endkunde_Microsoft_CSP.mp4
+
To do so, please click on the factory symbol on the left-hand side of the welcome page after logging in.<br>
 +
Here you will find the customer administration and, subsequently, all the end customers you have created.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
To create a new end customer, please click on the '+' symbol. Afterwards, another window opens in which you have to enter the following information of the end customer:<br>
 +
<br>
 +
* Company name<br>
 +
* Adress<br>
 +
* Postal Code<br>
 +
* City<br>
 +
* Country<br>
 +
* State<br>
 +
* First name<br>
 +
* Last name<br>
 +
* E-Mail<br>
 +
* Telephone number<br>
 
<br>
 
<br>
 +
This information is mandatory, but can be adjusted at any time afterwards.<br>
 +
With the installation of the end customer in the TERRA CLOUD Centre, the process is completed at this point.<br>
 +
The end customer is automatically synchronised into the TERRA Technical Centre within a time window of a few minutes.<br>
 +
This is where the final one-time process of creating/connecting a Microsoft 365 account takes place.<br>
 +
<br />
 +
 +
=== Microsoft account ===
 +
Microsoft CSP products are managed in the respective Microsoft 365 Admin Center after they have been booked. For this purpose, a Microsoft 365 account must be created uniquely for each end customer.<br>
 +
In addition, Microsoft provides further information on the scope of products and services. These are summarised in the so-called Microsoft Customer Agreement<br>
 +
This must also be accepted only once before booking Microsoft CSP products.<br>
 +
<br />
  
In order to book services for the customer via the Cloud Center, the customer must be created with all customer details. This includes the company name, the address and an email address.<br>  
+
=== Create / link a Microsoft 365 account ===
Here it may be useful to enter a mail address to which you have access as a partner.<br>  
+
For the booking and deployment of Microsoft CSP products, a Microsoft 365 account must be created for each end customer or an existing account must be linked.<br>
The customer management can be found on the left side of the screen under the factory icon. By clicking on the plus symbol you can create the customer. <br>  
+
Without this step, no reservations can be made. This step takes place in the TERRA Technical Center. Please click on the item 'Customer administration'.<br>
At this time, Microsoft products cannot yet be booked.<br>  
+
All end customers that have been created in the TERRA CLOUD Center are displayed here. Next, select the corresponding end customer and then click on 'Service settings'.<br>
 +
You will see the item 'CSP' there. Please click on the option 'Edit'. Here you have two choices, which are explained in more detail in the following paragraphs.<br>
 +
<br />
 +
==== Create a new Microsoft 365 account ====
 +
If your end user has never used Microsoft 365 before, you can create a new Microsoft 365 account in the TERRA Technical Center.<br>
 +
To do this, please select the option 'Create new Microsoft Tenant'. Then type in the desired prefix. Our system will then create the new login details.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
Example:<br>
 +
The end customer is called Müller GmbH and has never used Microsoft 365. To create a Microsoft 365 account, simply write the company name in the input field and check the availability.<br>
 +
If the prefix already exists, you will receive a notification. Then adjust the prefix accordingly. Click on 'Save' and our system will create the following login:<br>
 +
<br>
 +
admin@muellergmbh.onmicrosoft.com<br>
 +
xxxyyzzz (Initial password)<br>
 
<br>
 
<br>
[[Datei:Endkunden anlegen EN.png|border]]<br>
+
With this login details you can log in to the newly created Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer via '''portal.office.com'''.<br>
 
<br />
 
<br />
=== Entering the Azure domain prefix ===
+
==== Linking an existing Microsoft 365 account ====
Important: The following steps are only relevant for CSP orders!<br>
+
If your end customer already uses Microsoft 365 products, you can link the existing account with our system.<br>
There are two options here; <br>
+
The settings and users in the respective Microsoft 365 Centre remain unaffected. Only an additional reference path is added to the existing system.<br>
*Possibility 1 end customer is already using Microsoft 365<br>.  
+
To start the process, please select 'Link existing tenant' under 'Service settings' in the TERRA Technical Center.<br>
*Possibility 2 End customer does not use Microsoft 365 yet<br>.
+
In the text box, please enter the default domain stored for the end customer in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center. This is not necessarily the onmicrosoft.com domain.<br>
<br>  
+
You can see which domain is the correct one in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer under the item 'Settings' and 'Domains'. There you will find a domain with the note (default).<br>
The Microsoft Azure domain prefix serves as the username in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, where the booked Microsoft 365 licenses are managed.<br>.
 
First select the customer in the customer management and go to "Settings for additional services". There you proceed according to one of the following ways:<br>  
 
<br />
 
==== Customer has used Microsoft 365 before ====
 
In this case, a Microsoft 365 admin center should already exist and the customer should therefore also have an onmicrosoft domain. <br>
 
So check the box "Use Microsoft domain". You now have the option to enter the existing domain.<br>
 
Important here: It is not mandatory to enter the onmicrosoft domain, but always the domain that is marked as default in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center under Setup -> Domains.<br>.
 
An e-mail with the confirmation link is then sent to the e-mail address stored in the Cloud Center by the end customer, via which the transfer of the delegated administration to Wortmann AG must be confirmed.<br>
 
To do this, simply log in via the link with the global administrator credentials for the Admin Center and confirm the invitation there via "Authorize CSP".<br>
 
<br>
 
[[Datei:Domäne vorhanden EN.png|border|Domäne vorhanden]] <br>
 
 
<br>
 
<br>
After that, all you would need to do is click on "Verify Assignment" in our Cloud Center, this will verify that the domain entered is correct.<br>.
+
Once you have entered the appropriate default domain in the TERRA Technical Center, click on 'Save'. Our system will then send an e-mail to the e-mail address entered under the end customer's account.<br>
You will find the item where you entered the domain before. If the domain is not the right one, please try the other domains stored in the Admin Center first.
+
The email contains a link that must be confirmed once with the admin login data for the end customer's respective Microsoft 365 Admin Center.<br>
If you still experience an error, please do not hesitate to contact us.<br>
+
We recommend opening this link using InPrivate/Incognito browsers only.<br>
 +
After the successful confirmation of the link, you as a partner and we as WORTMANN AG are listed in the settings and partner relationships in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer.<br>
 +
To complete the process, please click on the item 'Check assignment' in the TERRA Technical Center. If you receive an error message,<br>
 +
adjust the registered domain accordingly or check whether you as a partner and we as WORTMANN AG are registered in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer.<br>
 +
If the existing Microsoft 365 Admin Center cannot be linked, please contact csp@wortmann.de with your WORTMANN AG customer number.<br>
 
<br />
 
<br />
  
==== Customer has not yet used Microsoft 365 ====
+
== Booking Microsoft CSP licences ==
If the customer does not already have an Azure domain prefix, simply leave the "Use Microsoft domain" checkbox blank.<br>
+
Microsoft CSP products continue to be booked in the TERRA CLOUD Center [http://www.terracloud.de (www.terracloud.de)]. You can see all the products that can be purchased via the product selection.<br>
In the field below you can now enter a desired prefix, for example the company name lower case and written together. Spaces or special characters are not allowed.<br>
+
In the shopping cart, you configure the selected item and make the final booking. An adjustment of the completed orders is also possible in the TERRA CLOUD Center for the end customer in question.<br>
The domain must always be globally unique; if the field lights up red, the prefix entered has already been assigned.<br>
+
<br />
Then you may need to expand your information (zip code, company additions, etc.).<br>
 
<br>
 
When you submit your input, it takes a short moment for the Admin Center to be created. Sometimes it may be necessary to submit the input twice. <br>  
 
Only when the mask disappears the sending has worked.<br>
 
If you then go to the settings for additional services again, you will find the login data for the Microsoft 365 Admin Center, which you can log into via portal.office.com. <br>  
 
<br>
 
[[Datei:Kundendetails EN.png|border]]<br>
 
<br>
 
  
=== Accepting the Microsoft Customer Agreement ===
+
=== Product selection ===
Before you can book licenses for the customer, only one step is missing. <br>
+
In the TERRA CLOUD Center you will find the available products in our 'Marketplace'. This can be opened by clicking on 'Marketplace' in the left hand side after logging in to the TERRA CLOUD Center.<br>
Since 31.01.2020, the Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA) must be confirmed by each end customer in order to be able to book and use Microsoft 365 services.<br>  
+
A window with the product overview will then open.<br>
<br>
+
The Microsoft CSP products can be found in the category 'Microsoft Products'.<br>
To do this, first select the "Settings" item (the cogwheel at the bottom left) and there "My additional service settings".<br>  
+
In the category 'Microsoft CSP New Commerce' you will find the available options divided into main products and addons.<br>
Here you will find the item "Microsoft Customer Agreement".<br>
 
After clicking on this item, all the customers you have created will be listed, those for which the MCA has not yet been confirmed are marked in red.<br>
 
<br>
 
Here you select the customer for which the confirmation is required. <br>  
 
You now have the choice to "send" the MCA, thereby a link is sent to the customer's stored mail address, through which he can make this confirmation himself, alternatively, the MCA "manually to confirm". <br>
 
In that case, the customer would be immediately switched green.<br>
 
<br>
 
[[Datei:Mca EN.png|border]]<br>

<br />

==== Last Steps in TERRA Cloud Center ====

'''Step 3: Check with which MPN and Microsoft ID the MPA was accepted'''<br>.
 
In the Microsoft Partner Center, click on the settings at the top right. Then click on "Partner Settings".<br>
 
Under the item "Trading partner profile" you can see status and the date when the MPA was accepted.<br>
 
At the same time, the location MPN (7-digit) with which the MPA was accepted is indicated there.<br>
 
Under the item "Azure AD Profile" or "Clients" you will find your Microsoft ID as GUID (Globally Unique Identifier).<br>
 
The Microsoft ID is also referred to as the Azure AD client ID." <br>
 
<br>
 
'''4th step: deposit Microsoft ID and location MPN in TERRA CLOUD Center'''<br>
 
In order for reconciliation to take place between your customers in the Microsoft Partner Center and the TERRA CLOUD Center, you will need to provide us with your location MPN and Microsoft ID.<br>
 
To do this, log in at https://www.terracloud.de/. After logging in, you will find the settings at the bottom left. In it, please click on "My additional service settings".<br>
 
You can use the "Microsoft MPN + MPA" function to store your MPN and check for the MPA. <br>
 
You can then use the Microsoft Indirect Reseller feature to store your Microsoft ID and location MPN.<br>
 
<br>
 
'''5th step: create distribution partnership to existing end customers'''<br>
 
To view your existing end customers in your Microsoft Partner Center, you can use the "Microsoft Customers" feature in the TERRA CLOUD Center to view your end customers and check their partner status.<br>
 
If the end customer is green, they should already be assigned to you as an Indirect Sales Partner. If the status is orange, he is currently still assigned to another sales partner.<br>
 
Red status means that the end customer is not currently assigned to an Indirect Distributor.<br>
 
Using the "Send Invitation" feature, you can send an invitation link to your end customer's contact that links you as an Indirect Sales Partner with Microsoft.<br>
 
Once you have received confirmation from Microsoft, you can verify the status in the terra Cloud Center using the "Verify Sales Partnership" function.<br>
 
<br>
 
At the end of these steps, you have confirmed the Microsoft Partner Agreement and connected to WORTMANN AG as an Indirect Reseller.<br>
 
The deposited MPN will be used for all your future transactions. <br>

== What is the New Commerce Experience (NCE) from Microsoft? ==
 +
Upcoming changes in the course of the New Commerce Experience from Microsoft
 +
<br>
 +
In order to understand the '''general changes, price adjustments and promos''', we will use this writing to explain the current CSP principle and then explain the innovations step by step.<br>
 +
When you currently book an M365 product with us at the TERRA CLOUD Center, you have '''the option to choose between monthly or annual payment'''.<br>
 +
Regardless of which payment method you choose, an annual subscription is always generated in the Microsoft system.<br>
 +
This subscription has a '''fixed start and end date'''. Within this period, there is '''price protection for all additions or extensions'''. <br>
 +
With monthly payment, it is possible to flexibly adjust the '''quantity downwards''' at any time.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
With the '''New Commerce Model''' this will change.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
There will still be '''an annual subscription with monthly or annual payment'''. Price protection will also be maintained for one year. However, it will then '''no longer be possible to reduce the quantity at any time.''' <br>
 +
<br>
 +
From the start of the annual subscription, you always have '''7 days''' to adjust the quantity or cancel completely. <br>
 +
'''After these 7 days, this is only possible again in the following year, when the annual subscription would be extended by another year.''' So here the usual flexibility is restricted.<br>
 +
This brings us to an '''innovation in New Commerce: the monthly subscription'''. <br>
 +
This subscription has only '''a term of one month and therefore also only a price protection of one month'''.<br>
 +
In contrast to the annual subscription, it is possible here to adjust the '''quantity flexibly from month to month, even downwards''. <br>
 +
But again, this is not possible every day, but '''only at the respective 7 day time window''' in the extension period in the following month.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
One must be aware here that there is a '''strong limitation of flexibility'''. It must be carefully weighed up '''which subscription and payment method is suitable for the respective end customer''<br>
 +
This is because with an annual subscription with monthly payment, billing is maintained until the end of the subscription term. <br>
 +
In case of financial bankruptcy or inability to pay on the part of the end customer, we are forced to continue billing our partner nevertheless.<br>
 +
The same applies to us if a partner is no longer able to pay the invoices: Microsoft continues to bill us until the end of the subscription period.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
The introduction of New Commerce is also accompanied by '''price changes'''. Monthly subscriptions are 20% more expensive than annual subscriptions (regardless of whether they are paid monthly or annually).<br>
 +
In addition, general price increases for certain products will apply from '''March 2022'''.<br>
 +
*Microsoft 365 Business Basic -> 20%<br>
 +
*Microsoft 365 Business Premium -> 10%<br>
 +
*Microsoft 365 E3 -> 12,5%<br>
 +
*Office 365 E5  -> 9%<br>
 +
*Office 365 E3 -> 15%<br>
 +
*Office 365 E1 -> 25%<br>
 +
<br>
 +
'''These price increases apply regardless of the subscription term.''' However, this also means that '''Monthly Subscription''' will experience a double price increase.<br>
 +
Once the 20% for the pure flexibility in adjusting the quantity and once the one for the general price adjustments of the mentioned products between 10% and 25%.<br>
 +
<br>
 +
The above '''changes will come into effect from March 2022 at our TERRA CLOUD Centre for new bookings''.<br>
 +
For the new bookings '''from March we will pass on the''' promotions from Microsoft to you. Different discounts and durations apply to the different subscriptions:<br>
 +
*Monthly subscriptions receive a discount of approx. 20%. The promotion is valid for new bookings up to and including June 2022. But beware: The monthly subscription only has a price protection of one month.<br>
 +
From July onwards, the undiscounted price will apply again immediately.<br>

Creating a customer in the TERRA Cloud Center

End customers are always created in the TERRA CLOUD Center (www.terracloud.de).
To do so, please click on the factory symbol on the left-hand side of the welcome page after logging in.
Here you will find the customer administration and, subsequently, all the end customers you have created.

To create a new end customer, please click on the '+' symbol. Afterwards, another window opens in which you have to enter the following information of the end customer:

  • Company name
  • Adress
  • Postal Code
  • City
  • Country
  • State
  • First name
  • Last name
  • E-Mail
  • Telephone number


This information is mandatory, but can be adjusted at any time afterwards.
With the installation of the end customer in the TERRA CLOUD Centre, the process is completed at this point.
The end customer is automatically synchronised into the TERRA Technical Centre within a time window of a few minutes.
This is where the final one-time process of creating/connecting a Microsoft 365 account takes place.

Microsoft account

Microsoft CSP products are managed in the respective Microsoft 365 Admin Center after they have been booked. For this purpose, a Microsoft 365 account must be created uniquely for each end customer.
In addition, Microsoft provides further information on the scope of products and services. These are summarised in the so-called Microsoft Customer Agreement
This must also be accepted only once before booking Microsoft CSP products.

Create / link a Microsoft 365 account

For the booking and deployment of Microsoft CSP products, a Microsoft 365 account must be created for each end customer or an existing account must be linked.
Without this step, no reservations can be made. This step takes place in the TERRA Technical Center. Please click on the item 'Customer administration'.
All end customers that have been created in the TERRA CLOUD Center are displayed here. Next, select the corresponding end customer and then click on 'Service settings'.
You will see the item 'CSP' there. Please click on the option 'Edit'. Here you have two choices, which are explained in more detail in the following paragraphs.

Create a new Microsoft 365 account

If your end user has never used Microsoft 365 before, you can create a new Microsoft 365 account in the TERRA Technical Center.
To do this, please select the option 'Create new Microsoft Tenant'. Then type in the desired prefix. Our system will then create the new login details.

Example:
The end customer is called Müller GmbH and has never used Microsoft 365. To create a Microsoft 365 account, simply write the company name in the input field and check the availability.
If the prefix already exists, you will receive a notification. Then adjust the prefix accordingly. Click on 'Save' and our system will create the following login:

admin@muellergmbh.onmicrosoft.com
xxxyyzzz (Initial password)

With this login details you can log in to the newly created Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer via portal.office.com.

Linking an existing Microsoft 365 account

If your end customer already uses Microsoft 365 products, you can link the existing account with our system.
The settings and users in the respective Microsoft 365 Centre remain unaffected. Only an additional reference path is added to the existing system.
To start the process, please select 'Link existing tenant' under 'Service settings' in the TERRA Technical Center.
In the text box, please enter the default domain stored for the end customer in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center. This is not necessarily the onmicrosoft.com domain.
You can see which domain is the correct one in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer under the item 'Settings' and 'Domains'. There you will find a domain with the note (default).

Once you have entered the appropriate default domain in the TERRA Technical Center, click on 'Save'. Our system will then send an e-mail to the e-mail address entered under the end customer's account.
The email contains a link that must be confirmed once with the admin login data for the end customer's respective Microsoft 365 Admin Center.
We recommend opening this link using InPrivate/Incognito browsers only.
After the successful confirmation of the link, you as a partner and we as WORTMANN AG are listed in the settings and partner relationships in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer.
To complete the process, please click on the item 'Check assignment' in the TERRA Technical Center. If you receive an error message,
adjust the registered domain accordingly or check whether you as a partner and we as WORTMANN AG are registered in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center of the end customer.
If the existing Microsoft 365 Admin Center cannot be linked, please contact csp@wortmann.de with your WORTMANN AG customer number.

What is the New Commerce Experience (NCE) from Microsoft?

Upcoming changes in the course of the New Commerce Experience from Microsoft
In order to understand the general changes, price adjustments and promos, we will use this writing to explain the current CSP principle and then explain the innovations step by step.
When you currently book an M365 product with us at the TERRA CLOUD Center, you have the option to choose between monthly or annual payment.
Regardless of which payment method you choose, an annual subscription is always generated in the Microsoft system.
This subscription has a fixed start and end date. Within this period, there is price protection for all additions or extensions.
With monthly payment, it is possible to flexibly adjust the quantity downwards at any time.

With the New Commerce Model this will change.

There will still be an annual subscription with monthly or annual payment. Price protection will also be maintained for one year. However, it will then no longer be possible to reduce the quantity at any time.

From the start of the annual subscription, you always have 7 days to adjust the quantity or cancel completely.
After these 7 days, this is only possible again in the following year, when the annual subscription would be extended by another year. So here the usual flexibility is restricted.
This brings us to an innovation in New Commerce: the monthly subscription.
This subscription has only a term of one month and therefore also only a price protection of one month.
In contrast to the annual subscription, it is possible here to adjust the 'quantity flexibly from month to month, even downwards.
But again, this is not possible every day, but only at the respective 7 day time window in the extension period in the following month.

One must be aware here that there is a strong limitation of flexibility'. It must be carefully weighed up which subscription and payment method is suitable for the respective end customer
This is because with an annual subscription with monthly payment, billing is maintained until the end of the subscription term.
In case of financial bankruptcy or inability to pay on the part of the end customer, we are forced to continue billing our partner nevertheless.
The same applies to us if a partner is no longer able to pay the invoices: Microsoft continues to bill us until the end of the subscription period.

The introduction of New Commerce is also accompanied by price changes. Monthly subscriptions are 20% more expensive than annual subscriptions (regardless of whether they are paid monthly or annually).
In addition, general price increases for certain products will apply from March 2022.

  • Microsoft 365 Business Basic -> 20%
  • Microsoft 365 Business Premium -> 10%
  • Microsoft 365 E3 -> 12,5%
  • Office 365 E5 -> 9%
  • Office 365 E3 -> 15%
  • Office 365 E1 -> 25%


These price increases apply regardless of the subscription term. However, this also means that Monthly Subscription will experience a double price increase.
Once the 20% for the pure flexibility in adjusting the quantity and once the one for the general price adjustments of the mentioned products between 10% and 25%.

The above 'changes will come into effect from March 2022 at our TERRA CLOUD Centre for new bookings.
For the new bookings from March we will pass on the promotions from Microsoft to you. Different discounts and durations apply to the different subscriptions:

  • Monthly subscriptions receive a discount of approx. 20%. The promotion is valid for new bookings up to and including June 2022. But beware: The monthly subscription only has a price protection of one month.

From July onwards, the undiscounted price will apply again immediately.
