Why & how to become a reseller for Rynga, Jumblo, SmartVoIP, or other Betamax/Dellmont VoIP service?
By Alok Saboo on March 28th, 2010
Despite the surge in the number of providers offering affordable calling to various destinations, Betamax/Dellmont services, such as Rynga, ActionVoIP, Jumblo, or SmartVoIP, continue to remain the cheapest VoIP service providers and attracting new users in hordes. Many users, however, face payment issues with Betamax/Dellmont services and are not able to use their credit cards or other convenient payment options. One way to get around this payment problem is to charge your account using resellers. This brings me to our today’s topic – why and how to become a Betamax/Dellmont reseller.
Why become a reseller (local agent) for Betamax/Dellmont VoIP services?
The idea is very simple – MAKE MONEY. When anyone recharges their accounts through you, you can make a commission on the transaction. You can decide the additional fee that you want to charge. Just to give you some example, resellers typically charge between 25% to 35% if you are willing to pay in Euro. If you want to use any other currency, then the markup is even higher. Thus, if you can get even a small number of customers to charge through you, you can make a decent amount of money without doing almost anything.
How to become a VoIP reseller?
To become a reseller of any of the above services, follow the following process:
- Create a fresh account with any of the services. For the purpose of this tutorial, I am using SmartVoIP.
- After you sign-in to your account, look for an option to Become a Local Agent on left hand side.
- It provides instructions on how to become a local VoIP reseller.
- All you need to do is add a minimum of 15 Euros to your account using Bank Transfer, Western Union, Ukash, or iDeal.
- Just make sure that your transaction is processed. It should appear in the “Purchases” (again on the left hand side).
- That is it, you can now click the button to Become a Local Agent!!
You are now ready to use your account as a reseller account. Using this account, you can transfer credit to:
VoipBuster, VoipBusterPro, VoipStunt, InternetCalls, VoipDiscount, FreeCall, VoipCheap, VoipCheapUK, PoivY, SparVoip, NetAppel, SipDiscount, WebCallDirect, LowRateVoip, JustVoip, 12Voip, Nonoh, SmsDiscount, VoipWise, VoipRaider, SmsListo, BudgetSip, DialNow, CallEasy, InterVoip, VoipZoom, SmartVoip, ActionVoip, Telbo, Jumblo, VoipBlast, Rynga, VoipGain, PowerVoip
Things to consider before you take the plunge
All this sounds much easier than you may realize. Consider the following before you jump into it:
- How will you inform and attract users to start using your services?
- How will you manage or beat the existing resellers?
- You need to be able to host and manage website for your customers to be able to carry out the transaction. So factor the cost of website management.
- You also need to factor in the charges that credit card companies or other mechanisms like Paypal will charge for cross border transactions. Also factor the costs that you will incur in recharging your reseller account, i.e., costs of using Western Union, Ukash, iDeal, or Bank Transfer.
- You should be able to provide reasonable level of customer service, so that your customers are satisfied with you and come back to you and spread positive word of mouth.
Let me know if you have any other questions or clarifications about the process. Also, if you are existing reseller, please share your experiences.
