(WHM >> Home >> Market >> Market Provider Manager)

Overview

The Market Provider Manager interface allows you to select the certificate providers that you wish to appear in the cPanel Market. cPanel's SSL/TLS Wizard interface (cPanel >> Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard) displays the products available through providers in the cPanel Market.

Important:

To collect any commissions from a cPanel Market provider that supports commissions, server administrators must perform the following actions:

  • Link their WHM account to a valid cPanelID.
  • Enter their email address under the cPanel Store Configuration tab.

Note:

Your users must possess a valid cPanelID in order to purchase SSL certificates through cPanel's SSL/TLS Wizard interface (cPanel >> Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard).

Manage providers

Click the Providers tab to list available SSL certificate providers and a set of actions for each provider.

To allow your users to purchase certificates through a provider, set the appropriate toggle to the Enable setting. To disable the provider, set the appropriate toggle to the Disable setting.

Note:

If you disable a provider, that provider's certificates remain active on the server. The server sends alerts as the expiration date for the certificate or certificates approach. However, the server does not automatically renew the certificates on behalf of the customer.

  • The customer can replace existing certificates with ones from the provider or providers that you allow in this interface.
  • If the customer wishes to use the same provider, they need to purchase the certificates directly from the provider and install the certificates manually.

Manage products

Click the Products tab to list all products available through enabled cPanel Market providers.

Product recommendation

To flag a product as Recommended, click the star () icon.

To remove the recommendation, click an active star () icon.

Note:

You may only select one product as Recommended.

Product availability

To allow your users to purchase a certificate product, set the appropriate toggle to the Enable setting.

To disable the product, set the appropriate toggle to the Disable setting.

Product price

To manage a product's price, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the appropriate edit link.
  2. Use the controls to set the new price.
  3. Click Save.

The interface automatically recalculates and displays the commission amount.

Note:

You may only select prices in multiples of 12 cents for cPanel Store certificates. This is due to the commission system.

Wildcard price

To manage a product's wildcard price, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the appropriate edit link.
  2. Use the controls to set the new wildcard price.
  3. Click Save.

The interface automatically recalculates and displays the commission amount. 

Notes:

  • You may only select prices in multiples of 12 cents for cPanel Store certificates due to the commission system.
  • Some certificates are not eligible for wildcard pricing.

Manage commissions

Remember:

Server administrators must enter a valid email address as a commission recipient in order to collect sales commissions from a cPanel Market provider that supports commissions.

To manage the recipient of commissions on cPanel Market purchases by users, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the cPanel Store Configuration tab.
  2. Enter the cPanel Store username (an email address) in the text box.
  3. Click Set Commission ID.

    Note:

    This value defaults to the email address provided in WHM's Basic WebHost Manager Setup interface (WHM >> Home >> Server Configuration >> Basic WebHost Manager Setup) if you do not provide an email address.

To collect your commissions, click the link to the cPanel store and follow the instructions.
