Though I'm sure you understand it all, if you get someone who is interested in your $10 PlanA, you will sign up for another account at your host (for $5), who usually sets up the account, etc. There are different ways this is handled, some are automated, allowing you to do this from your control panel, and some are comletely manual.
It is a good question to ask, since if the host is a bit lagging in setting up accounts for you, it will mean more time that *your* client has to wait for their account. I know that many Alabanza hosts have everything automated, and I think this might even (to a degree) extend to their reseller accounts. Not sure who else provides instant account set up, but this is certainly a plus.
I realized I couldn't resell for the host I had due to slow account set-ups on their end.
