The Payment Solutions program gives you the ability to provide a single financing resource for your customers' IT needs - including software, services, and your product offerings. Financing options are convenient as they allow customers to spread the cost of their solution over an extended period of time, thus preserving important cash resources.

Payment Solutions help design several options to help you structure a program that best fits your customer's available budget and financial needs:

Structured Periodic Payments – to minimise the impact in any given budget cycle, customers can structure their payments into monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or customised payment options.

Deferred Payments – customers may defer payments for up to six months, allowing them to begin deploying and benefiting from their IT investments immediately, while paying when budget becomes available.

Ramped Payments – in some cases, an organisation may prefer to closely match the expense of an IT investment with the benefits realised. With the ramped payment option, customers can ramp their payments over time to align with planned deployment schedules.

Customised Payments – for larger customers who have unique needs, Payment Solutions Specialists can help structure a payment programme to fit virtually any situation.

Microsoft works with third-party financing providers to facilitate payment solutions for credit approved customers under the Microsoft Financing program.
