Q: How do I add more locations to an existing client?
A: First, log into the client's account. In the Places App, click the "Add" button in order to add a new location into the dashboard. Then, go to Account and click "Subscription Management". Click "Add locations", select the location you'd like to sign up for a PowerListing, and proceed to checkout. If you would like to charge the purchase to a different credit card, you can add another credit card to your account under "Billing Settings".
Q: Is there a bulk upload feature?
A: Yes. If you would like to create PowerListings for multiple clients or locations and don't want to sign them up individually, reach out to your account manager and he or she will help get your locations set up.
Q: Can my clients log into their account?
A: Yes. From the resellers dashboard you have the ability to send your clients their login credentials. They will be able to manage their existing listings but they will not have the ability to purchase additional PowerListings.

A: Yes. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Q: Can I purchase PowerListings on individual sites for my clients instead of the full package?
A: Not right now. Currently resellers can only sell a pre-set PowerListings bundle to their clients. In the future we plan on making custom configurations available along-side special offers of the month.
Q: Can my clients pay you directly?
A: The program requires that the resellers themselves enter the payment information in order to buy PowerListings for their clients. If you have your client's credit card information, you can add it to your account under "Billing Options" and set it as the primary payment method. It will then be used for all subsequent purchases. If you would like all your clients to sign up for PowerListings on their own, you might want to look into joining the affiliate program.
Q: Can PowerListings be purchased monthly?
A: No. PowerListings must be purchased on an annual basis.

A: We offer an invoicing option for partners who have built up a credit history with us. Reach out to your account manager for more information.
