How Glowroad Works?
No different from other reseller applications concepts. Glowroad also works in the same procedure. It’s a mobile application that offers manufacturers and wholesalers to register as a supplier, and other people can register as a reseller.
Suppliers’ work is to upload products on the platform. Resellers work just sharing the products with their customers and get orders. Glowroad work is to act as an intermediate between suppliers and resellers.
As a reseller, while you share your products to your customers, you can fix your margin from the supplier price, and the margin you set is what you can earn for the orders you received. Your work is to share products and get orders, Glowroad team can do other actions such as fulfilling the orders, collecting the payments from customers (If COD).
