EE Resellers operate within the Indirect channel of EE which is one of the largest and most successful UK mobile brands. Successful EE resellers play a crucial role in the distribution of Mobile and SIM only products and services by acting as intermediaries between EE and their end customers.

In this article, we'll discuss how EE Resellers typically join the Netify Distribution programme and the processes involved.

The application process for becoming an EE Reseller

The application process for becoming an EE Reseller begins with an initial Microsoft Teams call with one of the Netify Distribution team. The first call is designed to discuss your potential to join the programme - i.e. necessary capabilities and resources to effectively promote and sell EE's products and services. The initial call is a chance to learn more about Netify but we'll also discussing your target market, sales capabilities and previous experience in the industry.

During the application process, the Distributor (Netify in this instance) will discuss the your understanding of EE products and your businesses ability to reach the Business Mobile market. EE looks for resellers who have a strong customer base and the ability to leverage  existing relationships to drive sales.

Once the evaluation process is complete and the application is approved, the Reseller gains access to Apple, Samsung and Google handsets together with SIM only products. Once the. sale is transacted, your business will earn commissions which is calculated based on the structure of any given deal - e.g. up front and monthly costs. This commission-based model not only incentivises resellers to actively promote and sell EE's offerings but also rewards your business without having to provide end support to the customer.

Throughout the application process, EE Resellers receive guidance and assistance to ensure your business is armed with the latest resources and product information. Overall, the application process for becoming an EE Reseller is designed to identify businesses that have the potential to be successful in promoting and selling EE's products and services.

EE Resellers are also able to access the BT Reseller Programme which includes SOGEA & FTTP Broadband, Cloud Voice and BTnet leased lines.

Onboarding is another essential component of the EE Reseller journey - Netify have been onboarding and training BT and EE Resellers for over a decade. The EE onboarding process is designed to be interactive which allows you and your team to ask questions.

The Netify team will also provide training across the processes and procedures which are involved in selling EE Business Mobile and SIM only.

By prioritising training and onboarding, we ensure that resellers have the knowledge and skills to effectively promote and sell EE's products and services.

The role of ongoing support and administration in the indirect channel

EE Business is renowned for customer support which extends not only to its direct customers but also to those of EE Resellers. The support encompasses everything from the initial setup and account management to device troubleshooting and EE network coverage queries. EE Business provides clear guidance on safety, security, device unlocking, and even international roaming.

EE Business has developed the My EE app which is a one-stop solution for customers to manage their accounts and access support. There's also the EE Community which is a platform where customers can find additional help and support.

Importantly, the EE support process also benefits EE Resellers. While customers have the option to directly access support from EE, they can also seek advice and general customer care from your Reseller business. This means that EE Resellers can focus time on their core competency - sales. Resellers should provide advice and general customer care but the detailed technical support is handled by EE. This division of responsibilities ensures that EE Resellers can concentrate on expanding their customer base and honing their sales strategies.

As a competitive edge, EE Resellers are able to offer value-added services which includes insurance plans for business mobile phones and international calling plans. These VAS services (Value-added services) are beneficial for customers looking to safeguard their mobile products.
