Packages define the pricing, welcome email, module and more. Packages can be assigned to Package Groups, and added to Order Forms. There are two ways to create Packages for your SSL Certificates.
Using the The SSL Store Module:
- Create a Standard Package Group under [Packages] > [Package Groups]. Name it something like "SSL Certificates".
- Under [Settings] > [Company] > [Modules] > TheSSLStore Module, click the "Manage Button", then "Import Packages".
- Select the Package Group you created in Step #1 above, and enter the desired profit margin.
- Click "Import Packages". You will be able to see a list of all the imported packages under Packages.
Adding Packages Manually:
To create a Package, visit [Packages] > Browse, and click the "Create Package" button.
Creating a Package consists of several sections:
The Basic section consists of the following options:
|Package Name||Enter the name of this Package, it will be visible wherever services are listed and on any order forms.|
|Status||"Active" is the default, "Inactive", and "Restricted" are also available.|
|Quantity Available||If this Package has a limited quantity available, enter the quantity, or leave it as "Unlimited".|
|Description||Enter a Description for this Package. HTML is allowed, and descriptions appear on order forms.|
|Configurable Options||A Configurable Option Group may be selected if previously created, but this module does not support configurable options during provisioning.|
|Module||Select "TheSSLStore Module" for the module.|
The Module Options section consists of the following options, which are specific to TheSSLStore:
|TheSSLStore Credential||Select your TheSSLStore Reseller Name.|
|Product Code||Select the SSL Certificate or Product you'll be selling through this Package from The SSL Store.|
Cancel at end of term
You may wish to check the "Cancel at end of term" box. This will prevent the SSL certificate from auto-renewing, requiring the client to place a new order if they wish to renew. Otherwise, the SSL certificate will renew automatically. When importing Packages through the module, this option will not be checked.
|Term||Enter the term for the desired pricing option. For example, if you wish to create a 3 month pricing option, enter 3 here.|
|Period||Select "Month" for the period for this pricing option. The SSL Store requires a period of Month.|
|Currency||Select the currency this pricing option is available for.|
|Price||Enter the price for this pricing option.|
|Setup Fee||If there is a setup fee, enter it here.|
|Cancellation Fee||If there is a fee to cancel early, enter it here.|
Click the "Add Additional Price" to add more pricing options. It's common for people to create 1 Month, 3 Month, 6 Month, and 1 Year price options. There are many possible combinations.
The "Tags" section describes tags that may be used in the welcome email. The welcome email content is inserted into the "Service Creation" email template under [Settings] > [Company] > [Emails] > Service Creation. Only details unique to this service should be entered into the welcome email section for the package.
This sample email could be used in the Package Welcome Email section to help you get started. Be sure to enter content for your welcome email in both the HTML and Text sections.
When creating or editing a package that uses this module, the following tags will be available:
|The host name of the server that the service was provisioned on||e.g. "12345"|
|The SSL Token|
Can be used for automatic SSL Certificate installation on cPanel or Plesk.
If this is the first Package you are creating with this module, select the "Create a New Group" option, and enter a Group name. If you are adding a subsequent Package and wish for it to be part of the same group, select "Select from Available Groups", and move the group from the right to the left of the multi-select box.
When finished, click "Create Package" to create this package.
The only thing left to do is to add this Package Group to an order form so clients may place orders for your cPanel servers. See Creating an Order Form for more details.
