Alright, after searching, I didn't find the exact answer to what I was looking for, some close, but not exact, so I figured I'd post and fish for an answer.
I run an existing hosting company and what I'm thinking of doing, is something like resellers panel is doing or have implemented, here's the link to their setup and details: http://reseller-hosting-themes.com/wordpress. They set someone up as a reseller (free or paid) and they will get a wordpress site included for them free of charge, that ties into the API backend for offering their services, hosting, domains, etc.
I'd like to set up a multi-site (if this is the best route) to allow people to sign up for an affiliate/reseller account (which does not provide them hosting, just the tools to sell my products), more like an affiliate site, that they can market with their own TLD if desired (domain mapping).
Here's what I'd like to do (2 options), maybe thats the best way. A person, interested in making money by selling hosting/domain services but isn't interested in setting up the site themselves, so they sign up for a free account and then they market the products that I have on their MU site and I pay them a commission for selling my services. This sounds more like an affiliate type site than anything else.
Additionally, I'd like to have resellers that ALREADY HAVE a true reseller hosting account (paid) with me, to give them this site, with special features, plugins, etc. (possibly pro sites here?) so that anyone that is signing up for the "free" sites will have an incentive for signing up themselves for a PAID reseller account on my hosting.
I currently use the WHMCS integration on my existing site - and can't move away from that. This will be specifically for resellers (paid) and anyone that wants to market my products without an account, *but* would like to have a site already created for them, with my content for my hosting services, ready to go.
Boy, I hope that makes sense.... suggestions on the setup, plugins, themes, etc. would be great. If this has to be two separate installs for the affiliate and reseller setup, that would be great to know as well.
Lastly, I already have and am using the WHMCS affiliate program and I don't want to manage 2 affiliate programs by using the WPMUDev affiliate plugin, sorry.
Thanks to all in advance,
