Creating your own in-house cloud solution is inefficient and risky

  • Developing technologies, setting up systems, operating data centers, it will not only take a long time, but also cost a lot of money.
  • Your business may not have the kind of reputation, brand name and network infrastructure to service international customers.
  • The bandwidth cost is very high. It is very hard to reach profitability for a small service provider.
  • If you cannot offer the best service, not only the service business is hard, but also it will hurt your hardware sales.

  • There is no risk, and no initial investment is needed.
  • It can help you sell more devices, reach more customers.(It will never affect your hardware sales!)

Reseller ModelsTOP

Instant Reseller Model (with custom logo)     Become an Instant Reseller

  • The reseller can create sub-accounts for his customers. He can order subscriptions and configure cameras for them, or provide the sub-account information to them so that they can configure themselves.
  • The reseller can set his own prices. Usually the reseller’s customers will pay the reseller directly. The reseller will receive a special reseller discount or commission from CameraFTP.
To setup, please sign up a free account and then contact CameraFTP sales.
Note: with this model, the reseller will have full control over his customers’ accounts; the reseller is expected to provide account-related support.

Referral Program

  • A reseller can refer customers using his Referral URLs.
  • CameraFTP can offer a special page or an API for the reseller to sign up customers.
  • Users referred by the reseller are associated with the reseller. Based on the amount of sales, the reseller will receive commissions.
Note: with this model, the reseller does not have control over customer accounts, and cannot provide any account-related support to the customers. (CameraFTP will provide support).

Co-branded / White Label Reseller Models

  • These two models are only available to large resellers, mainly IP camera manufacturers. Resellers who cannot meet the minimum annual revenue requirement will not qualify for this program, unless they are willing to pay the minimum annual maintenance fee.
  • The co-branded / white label models offer the best flexibity and consistent branding for large resellers. For small resellers who don't have engineering and marketing teams to customize the website, the flexibility becomes a disadvantage; similarly, for small resellers who don't have a large customer base or strong brand name, using CameraFTP's brand name will make it easier to sell security products/services.
  • Both co-branded and white label models allow resellers to fully customize the website's look and feel. They will have access to the website templates and can customize the web pages by themselves.
  • Mobile apps are usually not customized, otherwise, the cost will be higher.
  • By default, the co-branded website domain is USERNAME.vosibiz.com. Custom domain will require additional setup and will cost more.
  • Regular service integration can be easily achieved through the standard FTP protocol. If needed, CameraFTP can provide our proprietary API to resellers for seamless integration. CameraFTP also has advanced software like Virtual Security System and IP Camera Configuration Tool. We can optimize the tools for your products / services.

Reseller Profit MarginTOP

Resellers will receive 25% commission on gross sales if they can sell more than 50 camera licenses.

For over 200 camera licenses, they can opt for a 40% volume discount based on our regular single camera license prices. Below are examples of our service plans and the volume-discount prices. (Note: the prices can be lowered by up to 50% if motion detection is enabled, and if the camera will not be uploading data for at least 50% of time. The discount will be reduced if all cameras will upload continuously.
