Reselling web hosting is all about ROI.
You want to obviously sell more products than you spend on them (your cost).
With a NameHero Reseller account we help you maximize your bottom line by including all the tools you need to get started.
Our Corporate Hero Reseller account comes with a complimentary WHMCS license which allows you to instantly integrate with SiteLock and begin offering it to your customers.
To get started you need to make sure you’re running WHMCS version 7.5.1 (or higher). If not, please upgrade and re-visit this tutorial.
Once you’re sure you’re running 7.5.1, you can access their Market Connect from your WHMCS admin dashboard:
Once there, you need to login to MarketConnect or register a new account (it’s 100% free):
Once you sign-up you’ll be able to instantly deposit funds/manage your balance from your dashboard:
It’s important to note, you cannot begin accepting orders for SiteLock until your account is funded.
You can use PayPal or any major credit card to get going.
Once you’ve setup your MarketConnect account and are logged in, you can click the start selling link under SiteLock to enable the module:
You’ll then be shown a pop-up with all the information you need to begin selling including an Activate link:
Once activated you can then begin setting up your pricing.
Setup SiteLock Pricing
You’ll notice each package has “Your Cost” as well as a Recommend Selling Price. Depending on your business, you can use their recommended price or go up or down.
Just remember, your cost is going to be deducted from your MarketConnect balance, so you want to make sure you price high enough to make a profit less transaction fees (i.e. when a customer pays you there is fee through PayPal or other merchant providers).
Determine Product Placements
Since MarketConnect is integrated inside your WHMCS, you don’t have to spend hours incorporating everything into your website; it’s automatic!
You just need to define where you want it placed:
Personally, I recommend enabling everything, then going through your order flow to disable where you don’t want it to show.
I like to have it display as an add-on to a hosting package:
Notice how you can have it auto-selected on the “Lite” version (for Free) where users will automatically have it and then can upgrade later on to a paid account. This will help increase your conversion rate (i.e. chances they’ll start paying for it).
Once you have all your placements set, you’re ready to begin selling it (remember you have to fund your MarketConnect account first)!
