Joining as a Reseller is a simpler option vs becoming an EE distributer.
The distribution model requires your business to buy the handsets up front and take the risk of billing clients. Whereas becoming a BT Mobile Reseller results in up front commission payments with minimal risks to your business. (Reseller and Distributer are BT terms)
If you are interested in becoming a distributer, let us know as our team is positioned to make recommendations. If the Reseller option looks to be better suited, read on to learn how Network Union is able to unlock the EE portfolio including handsets, tablets, SIM only together with optional extras such as Broadband and Cloud Voice.
Note: We do not currently offer access to Residential mobile products, more explained below.
How to setup your BT/EE Reseller account?
Setting up to access the EE business portfolio via BT Mobile is a fairly simple process. In the first instance, we need to discuss your route to market together with your ability to sell compliantly. If your business is new or involved in telemarketing, there needs be a focus on your route to market in order to progress applications successfully within channel rules. If your business is more established, the application process is somewhat easier.
We are only able to access the business product portfolio, you cannot sell to residential customers unless the buyer is placing their order under a business name.
Once we have progressed your BT Mobile reseller application, you’ll receive a unique BT reseller ID allowing you to track commissions and report on current order status.
In addition to a BT employed mobile specialist, Network Union provide account management working with you to develop your sales campaigns. We’ve also launched a Premier Reseller tier for mobile resellers with the ability to produce run-rate EE sales. Under the Network Union Premier programme, we offer access to dedicated account manager, face to face reviews and comprehensive training with support.
