I have been figuring out how to create new clients in my website. I do not know how to go about it. I am planning to resell campaign monitor. Do I just a code to my site to get the forms running?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Kamusta Giancarlo, welcome to the forums! If you would like to sign up clients on your site itself, I recommend taking a look at our API and developing a signup form from there. A couple of our resellers have done this, however there are things to consider, like protecting your signup form from spam and screening malicious senders.
The regular route to becoming a reseller is by signing up your clients and configuring their accounts upfront - here's a little more information on this. Let us know if you have any questions about this. :)
Thanks Roshodgekiss for the quick reply. Yeah, that is one of the big problems I want to avoid - spam and malicious senders. So you are suggesting instead of creating a form on the site itself just go to the regular route of signups and configuring the account myself?
Thanks for any feedback. ^_^
That's right, giancarlo - I'd suggest doing the account setup yourself, or using our API to automate this process after your approval. Another company, Artesano, used our API to create a Campaign Monitor account signup tool - I don't believe they're in business anymore, but you're more than welcome to check it out.
I just checked Artesano and they are still in business, I think. As they are selling their API which is sweet! Thanks for this lead. But with this API they won't have access to my account right? Meaning.. they can't view my clients and all. Thanks again for the awesome support. When I visit Australia, I would want to visit Campaign Monitor!
Hey giancarlo, I'd send Artesano an email, to be sure. Some of our customers have reported that they haven't responded to support enquiries, which isn't great news at all.
Thanks giancarlo - we'd love to see you! Happy to help out anytime :D
