A reseller is a person who offers another company’s items for sale, yet they have the freedom to set some of their own terms. They usually can set their own prices and create their own policies for consumers, but they still have to follow certain limits of the vendor they represent.
Credit Card Resellers
One of the most concrete examples of resellers is credit card merchants. Independent sales persons might become an affiliate of a credit card processing companies to help promote their financial products.
Sometimes they might have to use the same brand and promotional campaigns provided by the original credit card merchant. Other times, they can set up their own brand while giving proper attribution to the manufacturer or bank that originally produced them.
Types of Reseller Agents
One type of agent not as popular nowadays is the traditional door-to-door sales agent. Promoting a credit card this way might not result in a high sales conversation rate nowadays. Nobody trusts strangers as much as they used to.
Telemarketers also are sales agents who often resell products. However, people seem to find this equally as annoying as face-to-face direct sales. A little less intrusive is the direct mail, but that is something people might just throw away.
Other agents prefer to sell on line using a wide variety of tools. For instance, they might set up a site and interact with people on Facebook and get to know them. Then, they learn of needs they have, and then they meet them. They might also use email and mobile marketing to help spread the word about their products or services.
Yet another type of reseller is an entity. Maybe an offline or online store offers a wide variety of original or affiliate products via product listings and external site links.
