What is Partner Center?

Partner Center is a web-based, unified console that gives you access to a wide range of partner-centric activities such as membership, benefits, and account settings, all through a graphical user interface.

Partner Center uses the concept of workspaces to group related tasks and information together to ensure that you can quickly get to and complete your work.

Partner Center is where you can access all of your workspaces as well as account settings and support. It makes a great place to start to find any other information you're looking for.
