Top 5 benefits of reselling Dynamics 365 with SherWeb:
#1. We add value
SherWeb is one of the top Dynamics 365 resellers under Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider program. This means we work closely with Microsoft and have access to all the latest software updates that they push.

#2. Start selling in ten minutes
Going solo as a Direct CSP Partner is a complicated, time-consuming process that involves a significant upfront investment. Here are the steps involved:
- First, you need to get a Microsoft Partner Network ID number.
- Once approved, you have to apply for a Microsoft Live ID. To qualify for this second ID, you have to show that you can provide your own customer billing and technical support.
- Your next step is to apply for a Cloud Productivity Competency. Approval for this step takes about 12 months.
Instead, by joining SherWeb’s Partners First program:
- You’ll be ready to market and sell Dynamics 365 in just 10 minutes.

In 2016, Microsoft pulled the plug on its Advisor and Open programs, ending the sell and accelerator incentives.
SherWeb offers its Advisors a one-time 150% commission plus a 7% recurring monthly commission for the life of the client’s contract. The offer gets even sweeter if you have CRM Online customers and transfer their licenses to SherWeb. Our special promotion pays out a 15% commission in the first year plus a 5% recurring commission.

FAQs about reselling Dynamics 365
#1. Can I make good money reselling Dynamics 365?
The short answer is yes. Allied Market Research predicts that the market for ERP software will reach $42 billion by 2020.
We discussed in a previous article that the profit margins for Dynamics 365 are much higher than what you’d earn with selling Office 365, for example. Dynamics licenses are more expensive, and clients are usually willing to pay more for complex solutions such as ERPs and CRMs. Services surrounding the resell of Dynamics 365 are often more profitable because bigger businesses means bigger budgets.
#2. Who are my customers?
A CRM solution is a useful tool for companies with 20 to 300 employees. Manufacturing, retail, consumer goods, and service companies make up the best clientele for CRM software.
Since ERPs are complex solutions, they’re usually used by bigger companies. Those dealing with manufacturing and delivery are good candidates for ERPs.
