|What is the Callcentric Agent Program (CAP)?|
|The CAP allows individuals and businesses to earn commissions on all Callcentric paid services
and calls made by customers that are affiliated with their agent account.|
|How do I earn money with CAP?|
|CAP is based on a percentage commission of your customer's services and calls. For example if
your commission percentage is 3% and you have a customer who spends $10 on a service; you will be
credited to your Callcentric account $0.3000. Taking the same 3% commission if a customer of yours
makes a call for $1.00 you would be paid $0.0300 to your Callcentric account.|
MANAGING YOUR CUSTOMERS
|How do I affiliate / refer / create customers under my CAP account?|
|Your customers are affiliated with you by any (or many) of the following methods:|
The method you would choose is related to how and where you provide the service; and what type of
customers you have.
- They visit the www.callcentric.com/signup page and enter your Agent ID number in the appropriate
field under the "Additional Information" section. Once the customer has done that you will be
credited to your Callcentric account a percentage of all services they purchase or calls they
make; all in real time.
- They visit a special link (either by typing it or linking from your web page) like:
http://www.callcentric.com/?aid=xxxx which is a page hard coded with your agent ID within it.
Upon finishing signup you will be paid a commission on all services they purchase or calls
- You sign up their account and hand over the login credentials to them afterwards.
- You sign up their account and do not give the user their credentials. You manage their account
|Do I have the ability to manage or monitor my customers with my CAP account?|
|Regardless of the method chosen to affiliate your customer with your CAP account you will have the
ability from your own Callcentric account to view reports about your customers, and view statistics on
commissions earned; all in real time.|
|How are my customers accounts funded?|
|Customer accounts can be funded in many ways:|
Regardless of the method chosen the Agent always has the ability to transfer funds from the Agent's
account to any customers affiliated with them under CAP. This can be useful if you are taking cash
from your customers who do not have credit cards for example.
- The customer adds funds to their balance or purchases services with their credit card. This method
would be the common method if the customer has access to their account and has a credit card.
- The customer pays their Agent through any method the Agent chooses. The Agent then transfers funds
from his/her Callcentric account to the Callcentric account of the customer.
- The agent controls the credentials for login to the Callcentric account and uses their credit card
to add funds and purchase services AND/OR transfers funds from the Agents Callcentric account to
the customers Callcentric account.
|Can I change or modify the rate plans, services, or rates assigned to my customers?|
|The agent program only allows you to sell the products and rate plans accessible to the public on
our website. The services, rate plans, and call termination rates would be charged the same for any
of the customers under your CAP account as it would for any non agent controlled customer. As mentioned
above, you simply receive a commission percentage based on all paid services and calls your customer
