Microsoft CSP – New Commerce Experience for new subscriptions


As of 1 March 2022 new subscription types (or new customers to Lexel) must buy through the New Commerce model.


The options are:


  • Annual Commitment – lock current pricing in for 12-months, pay monthly or annual (no price difference)
  • Monthly Commitment – 20% more expensive but can change/reduce licenses at monthly renewal.


The cancellation window has been increased for NCE from 72 hours to seven days (168 hours).

Cancellations within the seven-day window will be enabled for the following commercial subscription scenarios:


  • New seat-based subscription purchases on new commerce
  • Seat-based subscriptions that have been renewed on new commerce
  • Seat-based subscriptions purchased on new commerce as a result of a migration from legacy CSP
  • Partial new commerce upgrades that resulted in a new subscription
  • Reducing seats from incremental seat adds on existing subscriptions or on new subscription orders
