Upgrade To Reseller

To do this your will need to either have R300.00 or EUR 25.00 available within your account balance. Then simply log into the account and look for the green reseller upgrade banner in the lower left hand side of your dashboard.


Once you have clicked on the banner you will be taken to the following page that will explain the way the reseller platform works:


As you will see on the page some of the key features are:

  • Set Pricing For Customers – Set the price of networks in each country for customers.
  • Set the price of networks in each country for customers – You earn the full profit when an SMS is sent.
  • Transfer Or Withdraw – Transfer credit from your Wallet to your Balance and sell it back to customers or withdraw to your PayPal or Bank account.

The reseller system also supports the following white-label features:

  • Custom Branding – Your colours and logo.
  • Your Own Domain – Use your own domain name or create a sub-domain.
  • Customer Registrations – Customers can register online for their own accounts.

If you wish to upgrade then you can simply click on the yellow Activate Now button.


To confirm that you accept the terms and conditions click on the yellow Activate button. You will then be taken to the following page where you are asked to enter your company details.


Most of the information requested above is compulsory so please make sure you fill in everything required. Once you have completed the form you can click on the yellow Next button.


This is where you specify what needs to happen to any new accounts setup on your reseller platform. The following options will be presented to you on the page:

  • Allow Registrations – This check-box allows your customers to sign-up for an account online. If this is unchecked only you will be able to create new accounts for customers from your reseller account.
  • Require Mobile Verification – This check-box ensures new customers are sent a verification code to their mobile number when registering. This reduces the risk of multiple sign-ups for free credits. The cost of the verification SMS will be deducted from your parent account balance.
  • Starting Balance – Allocates credit to a new account. This will be deducted from your parent balance.
  • Default Profit Margin – This is the default profit margin that will be added to the cost of your messages when selling them to your customers. You can adjust this manually on each network later on.

Once you are satisfied with your settings you can continue the process by clicking Next.

You will then be taken to the Domains & Email page.

Once you are happy with the settings you can proceed by clicking Next.
