Tick, tock, Small Business Specialist Partners… Your time is almost up! You only have until April 30th…

As you may recall, during the Small Business Summit, Microsoft announced the new Small Business Financing Program and then the announcement came through that all Microsoft Small Business Specialist Partners are pre-approved to start offering this financing solution to their customers.  One thing, SBSCs…  You have to sign up for the program by April 30th to keep your pre-approved status!


So for all of you SBSC Partners, take a few minutes and do the following steps right now:


1) Go out to the Microsoft Financing site

2) Complete the online enrollment form

3) Sign the merchant agreement

4) Start telling your customers about this new service you can provide them with along with the 90 day deferred payment special we are offering right now


What happens if you are a Small Business Specialist and do not complete the steps above before April 30th?  Well, you can still go to the site and fill out the application; however, you will then need to go through the entire approval process (which adds time), and you could be turned down (which adds stress).  So why not take a few moments and complete this process BEFORE April 30th to get it out of the way so you can add this offering to the list of services you can provide to your clients?


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
