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 (Home >> Security >> SSL/TLS Wizard) displays the products available through providers in the cPanel Market.

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

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

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

Manage providers

Click the Providers tab to list available SSL certificate providers, a link to each provider's home page, and a set of actions for each provider.

To allow your users to purchase certificates through a provider, click the appropriate Enable toggle switch.

To disable the provider, click the appropriate Disable toggle switch.

If you disable a provider, that provider's certificates will remain active on the server. The server will send alerts as the expiration date for the certificate or certificates approach. However, the server will 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.

Manage product recommendation

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

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

Manage product availability

To allow your users to purchase a certificate product, click the appropriate Enable toggle switch.

To disable the product, click the appropriate Disable toggle switch.

Manage 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 will automatically recalculate and display the commission amount.

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

Manage commissions

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 address in the text box.
  3. Click Set Commission ID.

    This value defaults to the system administrator's email address in WHM's Basic WebHost Manager Setup interface (Home >> Server Configuration >> Basic WebHost Manager Setup).

To collect your commissions, click the Payout Link in the table and follow the instructions.
