Reseller & Distributor Portals
In LicenseSpring, the same portal is used by license managers in the classical sense (who manage the end-user's licenses), as well as resellers, or distributors.
The only difference is the permissions set on the license manager, where some will be allowed to issue new licenses and/or create new orders.
Distribution portal is available to Enterprise pricing plan only, and it can be activated on demand only.
Contact us for more information.
To give permissions to a distributor, you assign them as a license manager, and allow them to create their own orders, and add license managers to that order, who will act as resellers.
When they log in to the user portal, there will be a few changes:
- A new tab in the left will allow them to create a new order.
- On an order detail a new "License Managers" tab will appear, where they can use it to add new license managers to an order (such as a reseller).
The resellers will be license managers who will be allowed to issue new licenses within orders that they have been assigned to, but not allowed to create new orders.
You can then set which products and which license policies for those products the reseller is allowed to issue licenses for.
When the reseller logs in to the user portal, they will be able to issue new licenses for orders they have been assigned to:
