I think most bases are covered with what previous posters said.

I think anybody who buys bundles in order to resell them for profit should become a reseller. To futher elaborate, when the profit margin is over R500(single deal or cumulative over multiple deals) said person should purchase a reseller sub as it's not very expensive.

The monies gained from reseller sub's go towards funding the hosting and upgrades of Carb, I think it's only fair to give back to the people/platform that enables us to constantly engage in our silly/expensive hobby :p

I know that this thread hasn't been posted on for a while but I am wondering. If something is not bought with the intention of reselling but rather made like the laser cut headphone holders by [MENTION=21768]RavenShield[/MENTION] ? Would that need a reseller licence. I have a lasercutter/engraver and I have a multitude of ideas of things to sell from personal signage, fan covers, perspex pc cases to perspex items for pc. Including custom engraving of any image/logo/clan name on any item they require. Would I need a reseller licence to sell on carbonite?

It clasifies as making a profit from advertising on carbonite which you need to be a reseller for

Thanks. I shall be doing that soon. I think I should first make test items so that I have pictures instead of designs to post in the feeler so that people know what they are getting. I saw the way RavenShield did his posts and it looked amazing.

I wouldn't mind paying a user fee of say R50 per month, reseller or not. The amount of experience, assistance and friends/contacts I've made, makes it worth more than R50 ten fold. I've often considered the donation thing but never know what is a fair amount and would rather do it directly to a Carbonite account than through Paypal in foreign currency and you pay site host's. Please note that I'm speaking for myself here, I do realize that not all are in a position to make a monthly contribution, but R50 per month user fee is not unreasonable. This could have a spin off for 'once off specials' from retailers who are willing to jump on the band wagon from a marketing point of view ie.. 10 Mobo's supplied to Carbonite and staff distribute on forum at a small profit margin to cover costs but lower than retail stores for those units only. This should also ensure that no one is getting special preference or loosing out either... Just a thought. If something like this is implemented I still would be here as it could also weed out some of the potential scammer's too...

I know that I am late to the parade, but I'd like to chime in here.

A reseller, based on what I originally created the system to be, is someone who sells items OR SERVICES, with the intent on making a profit (no matter how big or small) in an individual sale basis.

So, if you're doing a community project, and sells stuff to try and cover costs of doing this project, in my opinion, based on the exact case, you are not a reseller (but we'd obviously investigate each case like this).

If you buy something with the intent on selling it for a profit, you're a reseller. If you offer a service and it brings you income, you're a reseller (doing graphical work, network installations, rebuilding of cell phone OS', printing T-Shirts, etc).

You are NOT a reseller if you sell your own used items on a regular basis.
You are NOT a reseller if you sell the odd unwanted gift.
You are NOT a reseller if you buy a cellphone contract once every two years, and sell the brand new phone in order to buy the phone that you really want. If you do this monthly, you are a reseller.
You ARE a reseller if you sell other people's unwanted stuff, or other people's second hand stuff, and add a small fee for your troubles, ON A REGULAR BASIS. You are ok doing a favour for a friend every once in a while, and make a couple of bucks.

Guys, this isn't supposed to be difficult. This is about running a business (even a small one that gives you some extra spending money). If you're running a (informal or formal) business, you're a reseller. And if someone queries whether you're a reseller or not, you probably are one.

Subscribing to this thread, so will chime in if necessary.
