To do this, you can use the self-service subscription transfer feature in the Partner Center dashboard.
Once the customer has authorized you and your provider to be their registered resellers, you have administrator privileges to manage their subscriptions, licenses, and users on their behalf, and your indirect provider can submit orders on their behalf. .
