In this guide I will explain what WHMCS is, and guide you on the basics of how to use it. Resellers may request one WHMCS license at no additional charge via AMP at no additional charge.
What is WHMCS
If you are a reseller and are looking for a one-stop hosting solution for things such as handling Billing and Support ticket requests, WHMCS is an incredible solution.
It is compatible with the major payment gateways such as PayPal, Google Checkout, and Authorize.Net, and includes many features such as the ability to use various currencies, create invoices, and create promotions.
