OpenSRS launches hosted reseller platform

by Frank Michlick in Categories: Registrars

OpenSRS, the registrar brand of Tucows (AMEX:TCX, TSX:TC) has announced the launch of “OpenSRS Storefront” today, which is a fully hosted solution for their resellers. The system basically works like a branded affiliate offering, where the reseller receives a commission for any sales that occur under their brand. The reseller can upload a logo, choose from one of four themes and add their own text on the home page and about us and contact us pages.

The retail pricing can be set by the reseller. The difference to the wholesale pricing plus a 6% payment processing fee will be paid out to the reseller once they reach an aggregate of $100 in commission. There are no other charges to the reseller, other than a one time signup for for new resellers.

Other registrars such as for example eNom (through PDQ) and GoDaddy (through Wild West Domains) have been offering similar options for an annual fee.

Fully hosted… usually means mainly for newbies… which usually mean very little sales especially in the domain game where there aren’t too many resellers to start with…. which usually mean uhhhhh what is the whole point of this product/service again and is it really necessary?

We’ll see ;)

If it is better than enom, godaddy, resellerclub, etc…. GREAT but I doubt it.
