Reselling Overview

This is an overview of how to resell the Elastic Email service to your own clients.

One of the great features that Elastic Email offers is the ability to resell the service as your own.  There are a variety of settings that allow for a wide degree of customization, going as far as the ability to host the UI directly on your own website.  While some of the setup is fairly simple, some options are considered more "advanced" and may require some technical experience.  However, this guide will walk through the intended use case for these options and provide details and tutorials on how to set them up.

How It Works

Elastic Email offers the ability to create and manage unlimited sub accounts. Sub accounts for all intensive purposes are their own accounts. Contacts, templates, reports, etc are all separate. However, the Parent/Main account handles all the billing and tracks the usage of each sub account. The Parent/Main account can also set rules and limits for how sub accounts can operate based on your agreement with your own customer.  Using both sub accounts and the "Custom Branding" settings in conjunction allows any Main/Parent account to become a "reseller" account and resell the services to you own client base using sub accounts.

Reselling the Elastic Email service is for businesses or people who want to offer email services to their clients without having the hassle or overhead of building their own solution. Elastic Email is offering an implementation of the service that you can re-brand and sell as your own.

Elastic Email is not for businesses or people who are wanting to make a quick dollar like affiliate marketing or typical work from home opportunities.
