How to join IBM PartnerWorld
Review the step by step process to join the IBM PartnerWorld program.
Join your company's registered membership
If your company is already registered in PartnerWorld, you can add yourself to your company's membership.
You must know your company's unique token first. The 16 alphanumeric character token can be obtained from your company's Authorized Profile Administrator (APA). The APA is the person within your company who is responsible for administering your company's relationship with IBM.
Not sure if your company is registered or who your APA is? Choose from the help resources in the "Contact us" section on the left to contact your PartnerWorld team.
After your APA approves your association with your company, you will receive a welcome email from PartnerWorld.
Register your company
Applications must be completed by an individual authorized to sign agreements on behalf of the legal company. The individual registering the company will also register themselves as the Primary Relationship Contact (PRC) during this step. The PRC is responsible for assigning Authorized Profile Administrators (APAs). Once you've applied for membership as a new company, allow 2 business days for email notification of approval.
Apply to sell products and services
PartnerWorld membership allows you to access the information and support you need to work with IBM products and services; however, you must submit an additional application in order for your company to become authorized to sell or resell selected hardware, software, services, training, and financing. Allow 7-10 business days for approval of the Reseller application.
