Commission based partner programs, generally known in the industry as 'Affiliate' or 'Advisory' programs are where your partner refers your services and gets a commission if the sale happens.
Partner has no other role than this and customer relationship post-sale is handled via you. RackNap supports complete automation of such partner programs; from associating a sale with the relevant partner, to automatically releasing commission to the partner.
Discount based (2-tier)
Discount based partner programs, generally known in the industry as 'Reseller' or 'Transfer Price' program, are where your partner white-labels your services, sells them and owns the complete post-sales relationship with the customer.
RackNap gives you the ability to empower your partner with an admin panel (which he can use to maintain product, billing and support relationship with you) and a client panel (which his customers can use to maintain relationship with him). This means your partner can use RackNap similarly like you, enabling him to sell much better.
