Office 365 refers to subscription plans that include access to Office applications plus other online productivity services. These “cloud services” include Skype for Business web conferencing and Exchange Online hosted email for business, and additional online storage with OneDrive for Business and Skype minutes for home. All Office 365 plans are paid for on a subscription basis, monthly or annually.


Many Office 365 plans also include the fully installed desktop versions of the latest Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. (Publisher and Access are available for PCs only.) Users can install applications across multiple computers and devices, including PCs, Macs, iPad®, iPhone®, and Android™ tablets and phones. With an active Office 365 subscription that includes the desktop version of Office, you always have the most up-to-date version of the applications.

Online-only Office 365 plans are a great choice for some businesses and are designed to work with the latest version of Office, Office 2013, and Office 2011 for Mac. Previous versions of Office, such as Office 2010 and Office 2007, may work with Office 365 with reduced functionality. Get details about which Office versions are currently supported. Note: This compatibility with Office does not include the Exchange Online Kiosk or Office 365 Enterprise K1 plans.

Microsoft Office is the name we use for our familiar productivity software. Office suites are available as a one-time purchase and include applications like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint that can be installed on only one PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated, so to get the latest version, you can purchase the product again when the new version is available. The latest versions currently available for one-time purchase are Office 2019 for Windows and Mac. These suites don’t come with any of the cloud-based services included in Office 365.

Affiliates place links and banners on their sites that send customers to the Office 365 for Business website. Affiliates are then paid a commission on any resulting new customer sales of eligible products.


The Office 365 Affiliate Program pays a bounty for each seat of a qualifying new customer sale. The bounty amount ranges based on which product is purchased. For example, if you refer a customer who purchases 10 seats of Office 365 Business Premium, you will earn $150 in commission for that order. If you refer a customer who purchases 10 seats of Exchange Online, you will earn $125 in commission for that order.

The Office 365 Affiliate Program enables you to partner with one of the world’s leading companies and earn incremental revenue from your marketing efforts. You’ll earn generous commissions on qualifying sales of Office 365 for Business products.


Microsoft welcomes everyone to apply to the program. However, we reserve the right to refuse any affiliate that does not meet our quality and content standards. We periodically review affiliate sites to ensure our quality and content standards are being met.


You can promote the product to customers based in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Mexico, and Brazil . We hope to expand to more regions soon. If you are not in one of these countries, please contact us to let us know where you’re located, and we will update you once the program becomes available in your market.


Sales are tracked using unique tracking links generated by the affiliate program in your country. The referred customer has a predetermined amount of time (“Referral Period”) after their last click on your link(s) for purchases to be eligible for commission.


The Referral Period is the time between the customer’s last click on your tracking link(s) and the date the customer makes a purchase of an eligible product. This is often referred to as a “cookie window”. Microsoft will give credit to affiliates for eligible transactions for up to 30 days from the click date.


Impact Radius is a third party technology platform that Microsoft has contracted to host the Office 365 affiliate program. Impact Radius hosts all ad creative, tracks and reports all performance activity, and issues payments for any commissions earned.


All orders generated by your referrals in a given month will become “locked” and eligible for commission on the last day of the next month. Payments for locked orders are issued on the 15th of each month.

Example: If you refer a customer who places an order on October 30, that order will “lock” on November 30, and you will receive commission for that order on December 15.

You can choose to be paid in nearly any major global currency. Payments are issued by ACH or PayPal.


If the customer cancels their order before the lock date, the commission on that order will be reversed. If the customer cancels their order after the lock date, the commission will still be paid to you. If the customer changes the seat quantity before the lock date, the commission amount will be amended to the actual number of active seats on the lock date.
