The CS-Cart Reseller program enables companies and private entrepreneurs to provide their customers with the powerful ecommerce solution and make a considerable profit with minimum effort. The program may be of a particular interest to those providing design or programming services as it gives an excellent opportunity to enhance their existing service offerings.
Embarking on the program helps distribute a turnkey shopping cart solution with rich and flexible functionality. Since CS-Cart shopping cart has already gained the confidence of lots of customers throughout the world, distributors resell well-known and well promoted software that is always in great demand.
Resellers are offered generous discounts depending on the number of licenses they purchase. Moreover, resellers are provided with one free license of each CS-Cart edition to run a demo store or build a site where they distribute the software.
