If you want to know more, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to learn exactly what an IPTV reseller is, and how you can become an IPTV reseller.
An IPTV reseller is somebody who essentially resells IPTV – buying an IPTV panel and credits from IPTV providers and upselling it to potential customers.
You could compare IPTV resellers to ticket resellers – ticket resellers will buy tickets and sell them on, and it’s the same thing for IPTV resellers.
Resellers are third parties who buy IPTV subscriptions and sell them for a profit for somebody who wants an IPTV subscription.
There are a variety of IPTV subscriptions that have reseller schemes in place, that offer IPTV subscriptions at a super low price, making it worth buying the subscription and becoming a reseller.
When the reseller contacts the provider, they’ll receive credits – each credit will usually equal a month’s IPTV subscription.
Typically, resellers make around 40% profit per transaction, but this doesn’t take into account the cost for domains, marketing, and other costs that may incur.
IPTV businesses can generate a fair income, but it does require hard work and dedication – especially when you’re just starting out.
You can begin with a team of two and commit, and you’ll start earning money quite quickly – but be sure to follow our tips on how you can become an IPTV reseller.
How Can I Become An IPTV Reseller?
Now you understand what an IPTV reseller is, it’s time to find out how you can become an IPTV reseller. The good news is that pretty much anybody can become an IPTV reseller and start making some serious money, regardless of their current industry.
However, you do need the ability to sell, and you’ll need some technical skills (if you don’t want to pay somebody to deal with the technical stuff!).
You should also have some knowledge about IPTV if you’re going to be selling it and promoting it to others. Click here to learn more about IPTV, or check out our guides about IPTV here.
Be sure to research IPTV as thoroughly as you can, and reach out to companies to see if you can bag yourself a free trial.
Again, if you want to earn money and be successful as an IPTV reseller, then you need to commit to putting the work in. This will require prioritising your time, making sacrifices, and potentially delegating other tasks to others.
Here are some of the first steps that you should take if you want to enter the world of IPTV reselling.
Sort Out Your Domain
First things first, you should decide what you want to call your IPTV reselling business. When deciding your name, remember that you shouldn’t be linked to the official distributor – you’re your own entity and should have your own name and domain.
Once you’ve decided on a business name, you should secure the domain name. Your website will be your platform for selling IPTV packages and should have a recognizable and appropriate name.
Be sure to create social media accounts (including LinkedIn!) and link them to your site, and link from your site to your social media accounts. However, we recommend that you keep the selling aspect of your business to your website, and use the social media accounts to promote your business, improve your brand reputation, and engage with your audience.
Choose A Reseller Panel
The next (and most important) part of becoming an IPTV reseller is choosing a reseller panel provider.
There are countless different IPTV service providers that offer quality reseller problems, so it might be a bit difficult trying to find the right one for you. Your best bet is to scour the internet and conduct research to find the perfect IPTV reseller program for you.
Don’t just hand out your investment to the first IPTV provider you come across on the internet – take the time to research each one you come across. You may also want to see if different IPTV providers have free trials, so you know exactly what your potential customers will be getting.
Get to know the product that you may be reselling. What sort of content do they have? Are there lots of different channels to choose from? What is the quality like?
If you come across an issue with the IPTV service, contact their customer service team – do they resolve the issue? Do they get back to you quickly? How is their customer service?
Once you’ve found an IPTV service reseller program that you’re more than happy to sell to others, invest a small fraction of your investment into reselling their subscription service.
Allow People To Make Payments
Once you’ve chosen a reseller panel and your domain is ready to go, you need to create a payment gateway so your customers can buy the IPTV subscription service.
At first, you can make do with a simple and easy gateway such as PayPal, but as your business expands, you may want to consider other options.
PayPal can block your account if you receive too many refund requests, which can put a pause on your entire business until the issue gets resolved.
Many IPTV resellers will give up after their first couple of hurdles as they choose the wrong packages or don’t put much research into the process. If you invest in a poor IPTV service provider, then you’re most likely going to receive lots of refund requests and struggle to maintain a solid brand reputation.
Be sure to keep on top of your competition and don’t charge much more than your competitors. If you do, then your customers will just go to them for the cheaper prices. Why not run a campaign where you cut prices, or a social media giveaway to raise brand awareness and attract potential customers?
