We are pleased to announce that we have now released a module for WHMCS, which allows you to sell our most popular products – the Elastic Cloud, and our Reseller Hosting plans to your own clients on complete auto-pilot!
To access our new and exclusive reseller platform which allows you to sell our products at a discounted price, please raise a support ticket to allow our team to enable the module for your reseller account.
Once done, log into our client area and download the new module from Services > Reseller Area > Settings (as shown below)
Download and Install Module:
The next step is to upload the file you have downloaded to the root of your WHMCS installation, for example, if it was installed at example.com you would log into your account, go to the file manager and upload it to /home/user/public_html. Once uploaded, extract the file using the ‘Extract’ option.
Once this is done, the basic installation of the module is complete.
Create Product Group:
Now we have to configure the module, so log into your WHMCS installation, go to Setup > Products/Services.
From here, we will create a new group…
You may call the group anything you wish. For example, you may wish to create a group called ‘Elastic Cloud’, and add the Elastic Cloud products to this group. You are able to create additional groups for the other products available, for example a second group for ‘Reseller Hosting’.
Create a Product:
We will then create a product, which will belong to the newly created group.
To do this, navigate to the same Products / Services screen and click ‘Create a New Product’. Fill out the options, selecting the group you created in the previous step. I have filled them out as an example…
Set your pricing in the pricing tab to be as you need, depending on the product.
The pricing of each resalable product or service can be found in our client area, by navigating to Services -> Reseller Area -> Pricing. From here, you will be able to select the product you wish to start selling by selecting the icon to the right-hand side.
The important part is under the ‘**Module Settings**’ tab – this lists the products that you can sell through the platform. You must input your API credentials.
You can obtain your reseller API credentials by going to our client area -> Services -> Reseller Area and selecting ‘Settings’.
IMPORTANT: If you are adding a cPanel based product, such as our Reseller Hosting products or the Elastic Cloud, then you now have an additional option in the product setup screen. Enabling the 'Allow ssoLogin in Client Area' option, will provide you the ability to give your clients single sign-on from your own client area.
Once these fields have been correctly populated, you will be given the option to select the product / service you wish to resell from the dropdown provided (products may vary from the screenshot provided)…
Once selected, click the save button and the product is ready to be bought by your clients!
The Order Process:
Once a client raises an order through your own WHMCS installation, the service will be purchased directly with ourselves and the appropriate cost will be taken from your credit balance.
Please ensure that you have credit in your account if you wish to use our new module.
That’s it, all complete and ready to allow your clients to purchase our products directly from you, allowing you to profit from our products.
