Reseller Linux Hosting

The pricing model of the Reseller Linux Hosting Product is based on discounts, depending on the number of months any Plan's Order is purchased
and renewed for
. This feature is referred as Telescopic Pricing.

Note

Set Reseller Linux Hosting Plans Selling Price (Anchor: plans)

allows you to set Telescopic Price ranges for all Reseller Linux Hosting Adds and Renewals for each Plan.
This simply means that you may offer your Customers and Sub-Resellers increased discounts as and when they may choose to add / renew their Reseller Linux Hosting Orders with you for multiple months.

Example:

Suppose that your Cost Price for Plan A is USD 5 per month. Depending upon your business model, you may set your Selling Price for 12 months as USD 10 per month. Now, if a Customer
wished to add a Hosting Order under Plan A for 36 months, he would be charged USD 360 (USD 10 per month). However, with the Telescopic Pricing model, you may set a reduced price of say,
USD 8 per month. In this way, your Customer is charged USD 288 instead of USD 360, thus, availing a discount for purchasing for a longer duration.

To Set your Reseller Linux Hosting Plans Telescopic Selling Price

  1. Login to your Control Panel. See details

  2. In the Menu, point to Settings and click Manage Products and Pricing.

  3. Click the Reseller Linux Hosting link.

  9. Click the Update button to save your changes.

Note
  • You need to set Pricing for Plans under each GEO Hosting that you have signed up for.

  • Price can be any number (upto 2 decimal places). Hence, 3.00, 3, 3.19 are all valid prices.

  • Pricing for Add Dedicated IP/SSL can be configured for only the slab of the least duration

    Example:

    If you have a Selling Price For 3 Months slab and a Selling Price For 12 Months slab, then you would be able to mention the Add Dedicated IP/SSL Selling Price for only the 3 Months slab.

  • If you have multiple slabs configured, you need to set reduced pricing for the higher duration slab, than the one that is immediately of a lower duration.

    Example:

    If you have a Selling Price For 3 Months slab and add a Selling Price For 12 Months slab, then the per month Selling price you need to mention for the 12 Months slab needs to be lower
    than that of the 3 Months slab.

  • When Specific Pricing is not set, then your Customer would get the best pricing from amongst the Telescopic Pricing (for Reseller Linux Hosting) and any ongoing Promotion
    Pricing (if applicable)
    .

    Additional Information
