Affiliate VS Reseller

Hello everyone,

Can anyone tell me how is an affiliate different from a reseller.
Lets take an example of a hosting company that I represent, if I ask my email list to open an account with that hosting company, would I be an affiliate or a reseller?

Hi Anurag!

An affiliate is someone who promotes other peoples products for a portion of the sales price by recommending/linking to their website and then getting a commission on sales.

A reseller is someone who either purchases resale, or rebrand rights to a product or service, whereby the reseller gets to sell the product from their own website. they sometimes get to also rebrand the product under their own name, and also often get to keep 100% of the profits (depending on the type of product).

I hope that helps!
