    Perhaps ResellerClub would suit your needs for a "pay as you go" reseller program.

    Hello,
    There are several Pay-As-You Go hosts out there, but I would not advise it. I have used one in the past, without using names, I found that the problems below were present.
    Minimal Control over Customers
    Little or No control over plans (Generally limited to 1 plan type)
    The best way to go is with a small reseller account and upgrade as needed.

    Why do you say limited control?

    Hello,
    You would have limited control over pricing and promotions.

    Here are a few examples. Lets just say that you want to have 3 plans. Please notice that I have attached a promotional rate (the free month). You would not be able to modfy the prices to give the free month or months.

    Plan 1) Starter - $3.99 Mo
    500 MB Space
    5 GB Bandwidth
    5 E-Mail Accounts
    1 Month Free for Every Year
    Plan 2) Mid Level - $5.99 Mo
    5 GB Space
    50 GB Bandwidth
    10 E-Mail Accounts
    2 Months Free for Every Year
    Plan 3) High End - $9.99 Mo
    10 GB Space
    100 GB Bandwidth
    20 E-Mail Addresses
    3 Months ree for Every Year
    MOD NOTE : These are fictitious plans that do not really exist on my hosting platform. I am simply using them as an example.

    why not just join some affiliate program? it's basically pay as you go but instead, you get paid when they get a sale and you don't have to worry about providing any kind of support.

    Just an idea.

    @KDisk, I understand reseller program, like you just buy the hosting reseller account from them, and you make your own plans, you have your own whmcs and so on. like a real hosting company. ou don't have to use their prices and promotions.

    That is even less control than the Pay as you go model Kdisk described.
    In short there are 3 models for the OP to choose, depends on experience and how much effort/money the OP wants to invest in the venture.

    Better have affiliate program then pay as you go. then once you have enough signups per month you will be able to switch to the traditional reseller accounts

    The downside of the affiliate alernative people are suggesting is that you won't get the recurring revenue or future sales. With the pay-as-you-go kind, at least the one I am familiar with, your customer's account is associated with your reseller account and you receive profits on all sales now and in the future for all products. You even have the opportunity to resell reseller accounts. Try that Mr. Affilliate!

    Affiliate account: you will get one time payment between 30-70% of Customers first Purchase and you dont get anything after that.

    Bulk Reseller Account: You need to pay monthly fees to hoster and you can get fees from customer as per packages you sell.

    Pay As You Grow: You need not to pay to hoster as per the orders you get from your customer. no liability.
