FAQs What’s the process to becoming an Authorized SSL.com Partner?
Becoming an SSL.com Referral Link Partner is quick, easy and free. Just signup here.
Applications are normally authorized in one business day. How does it work?
It’s very simple. Any visitor that visits www.ssl.com with your code appended to the address (ie www.ssl.com/code/you) belongs to you. Once they purchase an SSL.com certificate, they become your customer. We also start you off with some predefined links to sales pages to get you up and running quickly. And you continue to earn commission revenue on their renewal purchases. Forever! Is there any cost to sign up as a partner?
No. There are no fees, deposits, or hidden costs required! The setup is easy and free, and you can start earning commissions today with absolutely no upfront costs. Do I have to buy certificates before I can resell them?
No. Customers and visitors you refer to ssl.com purchase the certificates, so you’re not buying anything. There is no risk or investment on your part. Can I sell at prices below other SSL.com partners?
SSL.com maintains the same retail price for all of our Partners. As a result, Partners do not control pricing under the Referral Link Program. This creates a level playing field with no threat of other Partners underselling you. Your revenue is determined by how many certificates you can sell, not by how much you adjust pricing, thus reducing your profit margins. There is no need to be concerned about how much other Partners are charging. Am I required to be a host provider or web design firm to resell SSL certificates?
No. The only requirement is good legal standing, and any organization or individual with a desire to earn revenue will be approved. Earn commission from your existing traffic today. When do my commission payments arrive?
Commissions are paid immediately at the end of the month following the sales-month. All sales must go past the 30-day refund/trial period before they are paid out. This gives everyone the chance to make a successful sale with a high probability of renewal from your customer. Do royalty payments to me truly recur forever?
YES. Commission payments can be wired to your bank account as a direct deposit. We also offer Paypal payments. What’s the wait time to get up and running on this program?
JUST A FEW HOURS! Once we verify and approve your business license, and your individual or company’s taxpayer ID you can start earning commissions immediately! Am I able to offer SSL.com Certificates through my website?
YES, ABSOLUTELY. Your customer trusts your site, and we provide the order form containing your unique ID that you can copy and paste onto your site. When the customer orders the certificate through your site, the order will be sent to SSL.com’s secure gateway, and you will be paid for the sale. You control the look and feel and all aspects of the HTML and design. Our form just collects the info, completes the sale, and credits you for the sale. Our designers will even work with you to customize the look and feel at no additional charge. How are SSL.com Certificates sent to my customers?
Your customers will manage their own certificates. This frees you up to focus on generating sales and more revenue. Customers download and install SSL.com certificates themselves if they have access to their own servers. If they are on shared servers, their web host or admins typically will install the certificates. We provide installation resources such as online instructions, FAQ’s, support forums and free support 24 hours a day. Is unsolicited bulk emailing permitted in selling SSL.com?
NO. Using unsolicited bulk email or spam to promote SSL.com certificates and products is not allowed and strictly prohibited. If an SSL.com Partner is determined to be in breach of this agreement after investigation, their account will be promptly terminated.
