How does the GoDaddy API compare to other reseller plans?
With GoDaddy and Wild West Domains, you get the best of both worlds. You can purchase a low-cost reseller plan and offer our tried-and-true products on your own unique Web store. Even better, our industry expert staff is there to back you up. In addition, our plans feature marketing and business tools to help you manage your reseller business.
How do I know if your reseller API is the right solution for me?
To use our domain reseller API, you must have the programming ability to build your own reseller storefront website and call SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) Web service methods. In addition, you must use both a backend database and a shopping cart solution. As long as your site or application can call the appropriate Web service methods via SOAP, the GoDaddy API does not restrict you to any specific operating systems or programming languages.
How does the reseller API work?
When your customer makes a purchase, you use the Web service to submit the transaction to us. Our server authenticates your credentials, processes the transaction, and returns an XML response to you. Then, you provide confirmation, such as a receipt, to your customer. Note that you must have enough funds available in your pre-paid account with us to cover your customers’ transactions.
Which products and prices can I offer my customers?
As an API reseller, you run the show. You can pick the products you want to offer on your existing storefront and set their prices as you see fit. You can select from a number of top-level domain names (TLDs), ccTLDs, and domain-related products, such as private registration, backordering, forwarding, DNS management, and email.
I just purchased a reseller API plan. What’s the next step?
After you purchase a domain reseller API plan, you can begin to integrate the flexible, simplified API in to your existing reseller site. We provide an operational testing environment (OTE) so you can get certified and test your integration. Once you pass certification, you can start selling domains and related products to your customers using the reseller API production environment. For more information, see the Wild West Domains API Reseller Quick Start Guide.
Where do I manage my API reseller account?
We provide a Reseller Extranet in which you can manage your API reseller account. It includes robust reporting tools and configuration options for your plan.
How do I fund my account with you?
Before your customers can purchase our products and services on your API storefront, you must fund your account with us. Your pre-paid balance must be high enough to cover any transactions your customers make. To fund your account, you must use the Reseller Extranet to wire funds to Wild West Domains. You can also set up a low balance alert in the Reseller Extranet to notify you when your pre-paid balance falls below a certain threshold.
Where do my customers manage their accounts, and where can they get help?
We provide an Account Management page that your customers can log in to on your storefront to manage their accounts. You can use your Reseller Extranet to customize this page with images, text, and links. The Reseller Extranet also includes a Support Options page in which you can enter the phone number, email address, and URL you want your customers to use when contacting you. When your customers need assistance, you are responsible for providing technical support.
