On September 14th, 2022, Vendasta is introducing changes to our pricing for all products and services within our Marketplace. These changes will only impact Channel Partners on a "Free" plan; sign in to partners.vendasta.com to see which plan you're on, which is shown in the top-left corner beneath you company logo.
What's changing for users on "Free"?
For users on our Free plan, pricing of all products and services within Vendasta’s Marketplace will be adjusted to match the vendor’s suggested retail price. There will be no disruption to service; Free users can continue to use Vendasta with all of the features they can currently access. The pricing of any products and services they currently have purchased will be updated to reflect as if they were to purchase from our Marketplace vendors directly.
To see a vendor's suggest retail price, visit partners.vendasta.com/marketplace/products and sort by "Pricing" in the top-right corner.
Why is this change happening?
In order to provide the very best experience for our Marketplace vendors, small business customers, and of course our Channel Partner resellers, action was required to better align pricing.
Up until these changes, there was nothing preventing small businesses from signing up for Vendasta and purchasing directly from our Marketplace, therefore receiving products at a discounted rate and bypassing any wholesale reseller. Not only was this a bad experience for our Channel Partners, as they were being unintentionally undercut, but also for the small business, as Vendasta does not specialize is serving small businesses directly. We rely on trusted local expert (our Channel Partners) to manage relationships with the small businesses they serve.
How can I continue to receive wholesale pricing?
Going forward, in order to take advantage of wholesale rates, as well as other great benefits, current users on Vendasta's Free plan must upgrade and subscribe to one of our paid plans to become a Vendasta Channel Partner reseller. These plans now start as low as $99 USD/month. Channel Partners can upgrade today by visiting https://partners.vendasta.com/upgrade
