OpenSRS offers a resell program for SSL certificates. They're are just too expensive (unless they have lowered their wholesale prices). Was something like around $79 or so for 1 certificate - if I remember right.

I am still under the impression they are all linked in one way or another, but I have contacted basically all of them and unless you have 10k+ to throw down (I do not) then you are going to pay $79+ per certificate and not even close to EV1's rate unless you put down 50k+ so EV1 is usually the best option that I have found as of yet..
IF anyone knows of any better deals please by all means post them but I have been unable to find any without putting such a large deposit, 1k is ok but most of us small timers don't have 10k to have cfloating around in unused SSL certificates.
exactly, Comodo and Geotrust hate each other more than anyone. I was one of the first hosting companies to use comodo almost 2 yrs ago. Now I am not working in a hosting company anymore. BUT I would refer people and companies to Comodo day and night. I am not saying that Geotrust is bad, I just never used them.
Anyway, if you negotiate enough, you can get certs from comodo at $32 only with 1k down. trust me, if you sell certs at $40 you will have no problems selling them. Its all about marketing and if you dont want to sell them, lease them at $5 a month.
Again, Comodo is a good company and has good prices. Geotrust is a good company, but their pricing structure is not the best for resellers. FreeSSL.com is a geotrust company that is trying to beat out Comodo.
