MCP eStore

Mike-MikeMike-Mike Posts: 1,860Member
Since passing the MCST, I have checked out the MCP eStore a few times, but it's pretty limited..

I thought about getting a MCP polo shirt to wear on casual fridays, but other than 2 small options, there is never anything available..

are they actually temporarily out of stock? or are they going to be gone for good?

    I found the same disappointment after getting the MCP. When I got MCSA I thought for sure there would be much better stuff, but it was even more limited than the MCP junk.

    So they have specific MCSA stuff?

    I was able to get a couple xxl MCP polos back a couple months ago. The Microsoft polo's were nicer than the mcp ones but they are ok. I wear them to work when I haven't gotten around to washing my work shirts.

    I expect that they do. But with the cert retiring the store probably is too. But as others pointed out, you can always design your own stuff. I have some pens that say my name and MCSA on them (because MS doesn't offer them).

    The Business certifications (Word, Excel, ect) have stuff too, but you have to go through Certiport to get it.

    I can confirm that there is no MCDST specific stuff in the store.

    I also remember the promise of bringing back wallet cards that was made last Fall. I haven't heard a word about it since other than a few people wondering where they are at.

    Found this thread searching for answers on what happened to the eCompany Store with MCSE products. You are correct in that they have been in a steady decline. Availability and selection has really diminished to the point of nearly nothing to chose from. I'm amazed that Microsoft would continue to license to them. It's a bad reflection on the company image. Lots of counterfeit copies on ebay with obviously fake logos that I'm not interested in. We passed the exams and got certified. We should be entitled to wear the licensed logo. I am in business for myself so it helps to project a professional image in front of clients. Really angry at Microsoft for not putting the screws to eCompany Store on this.
