In order for us to convert your Cookiebot account to a reseller account, it has to be a Premium account.
This is both for technical reasons and because we need to have your payment information. We will send you a monthly invoice minus the 20% wholesale discount for those of your customers you have signed up under the wholesale model. We will charge your credit card or PayPal for the amount. Since you can use either one or both of the reseller models at any time and do not have to inform us of the choice, we need to have your payment information even if you only intend to use the retail model.
We do not require you to have a premium subscription for your own website in order to be a reseller. We do, however, recommend it since customers will often look at your website for inspiration and to see Cookiebot in action. Also, it does send a signal to your customers if you yourself are using the same solution you are trying to sell to them.
After your account has been converted to a reseller account, you can create a free domain group and add your own domain to the domain group (See also: What are domain groups and how should I use them). This is only if your domain qualifies (maximum 1 domain, 100 pages or less, limited functionality). You can then save any data you need and cancel the premium subscription for your domain (you can do this by deleting the old domain group with your domain – if that domain was the only one in the group or by deleting the individual domain by clicking the grey arrow icon with a cross next to the domain). Remember to insert new script(s) as the 'cbid' number will have changed.
