Overview of DriveHQ Partnership Programs

If you resell hardware, you know the gross margin is usually lower than 20%. After hardware-related costs such as warehouse, shipping and RMA, there is little profit. What's even worse, such profit is one-time only. Reselling cloud services not only increases your margin, but also creates recurring revenue.

Which cloud service do you want to resell? Google, Amazon, Dropbox? With their marketing reach, who needs to sign up through a reseller? What commission rate can they offer you? 30%? Big deal! DriveHQ offers up to 60% or even 500% gross margin! Clearly DriveHQ has the industry’s best reseller programs and platforms. We have different reseller models tailored for different size businesses. Below is a glance of our reseller models.

If your company does not qualify, you can use our co-branded model, which is just like the white label model, except you cannot customize the website domain name.

For small resellers, leveraging on DriveHQ's brand name and 10 years of track record will greatly help you convince your customers and sell more. You can also make your prices lower than DriveHQ's prices.
Must be a very large
company to qualify

If you have not yet signed up a DriveHQ account, you must sign up an account first before you contact us. This will ensure that you know a little about DriveHQ's cloud IT service. As a DriveHQ reseller, it is expected that you can provide some support to your customers.

If you already have a DriveHQ account, then please try your best to estimate how much you can resell in 12 months, how many user licenses and how much storage space you need. Then contact DriveHQ sales and we will work out a best plan for you.

It can be used to transfer very large files / folders. DriveHQ offers standard FTP features plus more advanced features at a very low cost.

  • Offsite Data Backup

    You might have a very good backup solution in-house. However, in-house backup is inherently less secure / reliable than offsite backup. In case of major disasters, such as fire, flood, theft, virus, etc. both the source files and the backup files can be destroyed as they are in the same location. Offsite backup keeps your backup data in a different location, thus it is far more reliable.

  • Online Email Backup

You can also create group accounts.

  • SMTP, POP & IMAP

    SMTP is the standard protocol for sending emails; POP and IMAP are the standard protocols for retrieving emails. Most email client software (incl. Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express) supports SMTP, POP and IMAP. POP3 is usually used for downloading emails to local; IMAP can keep all emails on server and automatically sync local and remote email boxes. DriveHQ email server supports all 3 protocols.
