  1. i am really disappointed. I was expecting this to be a real reseller package not just a promotion. I was really looking forward to opening a store with a Ting section.

  2. Dont feel bad, I got sucked into the GoMobi Reseller “WHITE LABEL” thing only to find out that the GoMobi name is ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! $99.00 wasted!

  3. Hey Brouse, it’s actually just a couple of steps to get rid of the goMobi branding. Check out the video to see how: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWmmoHmeyLg&feature=plcp

  4. Hi Bryan,

    “Net Revenue” is what the customer has paid us minus the wholesale cost of  usage (minutes, messages, megabytes) and a few monthly recurring charges associated with keeping a device on the network.

    Cheers,Ken. Ting

  5.  Hi Ken,

    Thanks for responding so quickly.  I understand the equation however I’m struggling to determine how my company can make as a reseller.  Can you give me some ideas as to what those wholesale costs look like?  Even an average would be fine.  I’m just trying to ascertain what we can expect per minute, message, and megabyte.

    Thanks for your time.

  6. Hi Bryan,

    Your numbers will vary dramatically based on the types of customers you have (for example how many devices they have on each account and how much activity each device sees). So it’s really hard to even give an estimate.

    You can probably budget that you’ll make at least $3/mo per customers unless you have REALLY low-usage individuals in your customer base.

    Sorry I can’t be more exact, it’s all still pretty new, so it’s hard to be definitive.

    Cheers,Ken.
