No if you signup for a free account at Enom it will be a retail account which means you cannot create resellers. Also Enom will charge you $30 per domain if you do it that way. If you go directly to Enom for a reseller account you will likely have to pay a couple thousand dollars upfront!!
Originally posted by Alex[nl] So basicly everyone can become a "reseller" @ eNom just for his personal domains? And try to persuade other to become their reseller .. etc etc ...
I didn't mean by goint to eNom directly.. but if someone (me f.e.) takes a sub-reseller account from the forums here he can do whatever he likes with it right?
I take RFHosts' Free account, and register a domain. I pay $7,65/domain by login in and adding a domain. I imagine a portion of that money goes to RFHost, the rest to eNom. By being a reseller I can create an interface that enables me to resell domains for f.e. $8,65 . .leaving 1 us$ for me when someone buys one from me (& 7,65 goes to RFHost again automaticly).
Am I forgetting something crucial?
(I am just new to the eNom system, and their webpage isn't THAT clear to me)
Depending on the way you choose to sell, there might be additional fees involved.
1. If you manually register a new domain name for your client, you're required to deposit fund in your eNom account. Funding can be made by credit card, wire, or check. If credit card is used, there's a 3% surcharge and a $100 minimum deposit applies. Then for any registrations made by you, your account will be automatically deducted at your discounted cost.
2. If you use the eNom's PDQ, there's a license fee of $99/year. NO deposit required. Additionally, you're responsible for the CC processing fees of 95 cents + 3% per transaction. You charge whatever price you want, and your net profit will be deposited into your commission account.
3. If you use the eNom's API, depending on the merchant account, you may or may not need to fund your reseller account. If you use your own merchant account, you're required to fund your account (see option 1). If you're using eNom's CC processing, then you're responsible for the transaction fees (see option 2).
