I am interested in opening my own webhosting company. I'd like to sign-up for a "reseller" package of an existing hosting company and then start selling services as my own. I researched and found that [url removed, login to view] suits my needs. They provide a "supersite" that I can brand and configure and use as my own webhosting company website. However, there are some extra features I need:
1. Affiliate module:
I'd have a lot of affiliates referring business to me. So, I'd like to send them commission every month or every year (depending on the product purchased). So, I need a module where my affiliate can login and see their commission status. If the account they refereed is no longer active, then the affiliate module should automatically stop commissions.
2. Discount/coupon module:
I think this feature is already there. But if not, I'd like to have a coupon module where I can issue coupons and give discounts to users. I should be able to specify different kind of discounts like 1-time discount, recurring discount, single use coupon, multi-use coupons, unlimited use coupons, expiry date of coupons etc.
So, you have two options:
1. Either use ResellerClub SuperSite and integrate these features for me.
**2. Use ResellerClub API and make webhosting site completely from scratch.
You can find reseller club API here: <[url removed, login to view]>?
**When you bid: please let me know how much experience you've working with ResellerClub API and/or other webhosting companies. If you've developed a webhosting site before, it's even better. Please let me know.
Also note that there are some Affiliate Modules available off-the-shelf that can be integrated such as:
**1. [url removed, login to view]
2. <[url removed, login to view]>
3. <[url removed, login to view]>
So, are you going to develop your own affiliate module or going to use something from here to save cost and money. These are not expensive. I think only $97 or so.
Please keep in mind that most of my affiliates will be offline. So,
a. Most of my affiliates (sales agents) are offline; and most of my orders are also offline. I also get payments offline.
b. So, when a customer signs up, the customer tells me which sales-agent helped them. Then I just issue a commission cheque to sales-agent later.
c. If customer is no longer active, then I stop giving commissions to the sales-agent. Is this possible with your affiliate module? That is a) acceting offline affiliates. Customer will tell us sales-agent id. b) automatically check to see if customer is still active. If customer is not active, then stop issuing commissions to affiliate/sales-agent. Is it possible to use ResellerClub API to automatically check if customer is active. If customer is not active, then commission has to be stopped.
