Partner Program FAQs

What Is the Difference between the CorpNet Reseller Program and the CorpNet Referral Program?

That’s an excellent question! Here are the details about each program.

As a trusted advisor in your field of expertise, you are in a unique position to add tremendous value to every client relationship. As a CorpNet Reseller Program partner, you can offer incorporation, LLC filings, and corporate compliance services to all your business clients in all 50 states. You provide the professional advice you’re licensed to offer, and CorpNet will prepare and file all the paperwork as per your preferences and specific instructions. CorpNet will ensure your success by providing you private label services, a dedicated account manager, and fast, reliable, accurate, and personalized services.  CorpNet is your silent fulfillment partner and will never contact your clients. Your clients remain YOUR clients, and YOUR brand gets the accolades, while we do all the work!

As a CorpNet Referral Program partner, you can refer your clients to a trusted resource for incorporation, LLC filings, registered agent services, and annual corporate compliance and monitoring in any state. You refer the client to us; we’ll do all the work and send you a check. Or, you can waive your commissions and “pass the savings” as a discount directly to your clients. You are assigned a dedicated account manager, who is available to you 24/7 and will treat your clients with white-glove treatment. Can anyone join the CorpNet Partner Program? Both the CorpNet Reseller and Referral Programs are potential opportunities for anyone representing clients in need of business formation filings and compliance services. We created it especially with the following professionals in mind:

  • Accountants
  • CPAs
  • Bookkeepers
  • QuickBooks Pro-advisors
  • Attorneys
  • Tax professionals
  • Business coaches and consultants

Please note: We are selective in our screening process to ensure a good fit. We believe the best relationships are fruitful and beneficial to all parties!

Is there a fee to join CorpNet’s Partner Program?

There are NO fees—set up or annual membership fees—required to be either a CorpNet Reseller or a Referral Program partner. Sign-up is free, and the program is here for you to utilize as you need it for your clients. Am I eligible to receive discounted pricing as a CorpNet Partner Program partner? Anyone who joins the program is eligible to purchase our services at a wholesale discounted pricing of up to 30% as a Reseller and receive a referral fee of up to 30 percent. As a Referral partner, you also have the option to pass the discount to your clients should you choose not to receive a referral fee. How can I learn more out about the rates for your online business filing services? All fees for all products and services published on the CorpNet.com website is at retail rates. We can send wholesale pricing to you when you sign up for the program and we’ve on-boarded you.

How is the CorpNet Partner Reseller Program wholesale pricing determined?

We determine wholesale pricing by the volume of services you send to CorpNet to fulfill on your behalf. As a new Resale partner, wholesale pricing starts at 20 percent of our retail services fees and can go all the way up to 50 percent depending on the volume of CorpNet services that you sell.Wholesale pricing is available to anyone who joins the CorpNet Partner Program as a Reseller.

What is the fee for your CorpNet Reseller Program?

There is no fee to join the CorpNet Reseller Program. As a Reseller, you can receive wholesale pricing for all CorpNet products and services up to 30 percent off the retail prices published on our website. If you like, you can request that we remove all CorpNet branding from the documentation we forward to you so that you can put your own logo and branding when you forward the forms and information to your clients. Simply stated, the CorpNet Partner Reseller Program is designed to allow you to offer incorporation, LLC filings, and annual corporate compliance and monitoring services to your clients under your own name brand. You purchase the services from CorpNet at wholesale pricing, and we do all the fulfillment and back-end work for you.

Can I join the program as both a Reseller and a Referral partner?

We’ve made the program super flexible and have designed it to augment and enhance your advisory services in whatever way will provide the most fluid process. In short, YES! You can join the program both as a Reseller and as a Referral partner and use either program as it suits your needs to help your clients.

For example, a CorpNet partner may choose to advise some high-value clients and offer filing services, using CorpNet as a fulfillment agent. In other cases, that same partner may decide that for other clients, referring them to CorpNet makes more sense for all parties.

Are there any requirements to maintain a certain level of sales volume per month to be eligible for the program?

No, you are not required to reach or maintain a minimum threshold to participate. As I mentioned before, we created our program to meet your needs as your clients require the business incorporation, LLC filings, and corporate compliance services.

If I’m a CorpNet Reseller, does CorpNet ever contact my clients?

Absolutely not! CorpNet wants to help you strengthen and provide additional value to YOUR clients. We provide you with private label services, a dedicated account manager, and fast, reliable, accurate, and personalized services. As your silent fulfillment partner, we will NEVER contact your clients.

Does the client work directly with CorpNet if I’m signed up as a Referral Partner? And, if so, can I still be in the loop?

As a Referral Program partner, you refer your clients to us, and we contact them and provide unsurpassed customer service. We can always copy you on all communications with your clients and keep you fully appraised every step of the filing process.

When I’m a Reseller or Referral Program Partner, are you able to provide me with marketing material to market your services to our clients?

We have a plethora of marketing materials available for you to download and use in addition to online tools (like widgets and banners), which you can use to market the services to your clients. You can either promote them as your own branded services or use the CorpNet brand.

As a CorpNet Reseller, am I allowed to charge my clients whatever I want when re-selling your services?

Yes, you are allowed to charge your clients whatever fees you see fit for any services that you purchase from CorpNet, regardless of how much you pay to CorpNet as a wholesaler.

When do I get my commissions?

CorpNet calculates commissions on the last day of the following month for any given period. We usually issue commission checks within 72 hours of that day. So, if you refer clients to CorpNet and they make a purchase in month 1, we will calculate all sales, refunds, and commissions due for that month 1 period on the last day of month 2. Your commission check is then mailed out during the first week of month 3.

What if I don’t get credit for a sale that SHOULD have been a referral?

Call us, and we’ll make it right. Remember, we want to keep our partners happy. Our mission is to “WOW” you (and your clients) with our pro-active and experienced team of business filings experts who understand your needs and preferences.

How do you keep track of referrals?

When a user clicks your link with your unique partner ID, a cookie is stored on that user’s device. All purchases made at www.CorpNet.com from that device will list you as the referral source.

Do you have errors and omissions insurance?

CorpNet maintains the highest levels of errors and omissions insurance. Our team prides itself on continuously providing our clients with clear, transparent, open and accurate information when it comes to the business formation, filings and compliance process.

Is the team at CorpNet attorneys?

CorpNet is a document filing service and does not provide legal,tax, or financial advice. An attorney husband-and-wife team founded our company. Having been in the industry for over 25 years, they are known as pioneers of the document filing industry. Although our company does not offer legal advisory services, we work with a team of attorneys, in every state, who routinely review all of our forms and filings for clarity, transparency, and accuracy.

As a CPA or financial advisor, wouldn’t it be the practice of law to offer and advise clients on business incorporation and compliance filing services?

It is NOT considered the practice of law to advise your clients on which entity to structure their businesses under for the best tax implications. In fact, an accountant, CPA, or financial advisor is in the best position to advise their client about which entity structure and which state of registration will give clients the best tax consequences.

Yes, if your clients need legal advice, they should speak with an attorney. However, filing business formation and compliance documents does not by law require a lawyer. You can save your clients time and money by using CorpNet’s services instead of that purpose. We can get it done quickly and accurately, using a seamless process.

As an attorney, why should I join the CorpNet Partner Program?

In light of how easy it has become to start or incorporate a business online these days, new startups sometimes steer clear of attorneys. The general perception is that lawyers charge a lot of money and require a lot of time to file business formation and compliance documents for their clients.

As an attorney, however, you can join the CorpNet partner program and keep your clients from going elsewhere. By offering our services, you can set affordable fees to prepare and submit clients’ registration and compliance paperwork. Plus, you’ll be able to get filings done faster by using CorpNet as your back-end fulfillment partner. As a CorpNet Reseller, you add an additional revenue stream to your practice if you don’t already offer filing services to your clients. You also have the option of referring your clients to a CorpNet instead if that’s a better fit for your business.

By joining the CorpNet Partner Program, you’ll enhance your reputation as a trusted advisor who is looking out for your clients’ best interests. We can help you increase your client base, and we’ll help you keep your existing clients happy by getting their filings done quickly and error-free.

Why would we need to use your services? After all, my clients or I can do it on our own through the Secretary of State websites?

Well, you certainly can do it on your own. However, in doing so, you run the risk of making errors and having your filings rejected because of inaccurate information.

For example, the state may reject a filing if a client fails to complete a required field or check an incorrect box.

Rejected filings result in otherwise unnecessary fees and additional time. Instead, CorpNet can take care of everything and make sure it’s done right the first time.

I already use one of your competitors; how do you differ?

There are many companies out there that are similar to ours. However, we are #1 in customer service. When you need help, you’ll never get an automated recording. With us, you’ll have a dedicated account representative who you can reach anytime through email, text, phone, or whatever you like. Your rep will walk you through the entire process and make sure everything is done right and done fast. You’ll find us highly personable, focused on your needs, and we offer competitive pricing. We guarantee your satisfaction!

I don’t have enough clients who need this service, how can you help me?

By adding CorpNet business incorporation and compliance services to your suite of services, you can start attracting more clients. Also, you’ll be able to engage clients earlier on in the startup process. As a result, you will have an opportunity to increase your revenue exponentially.

What if I would rather tell clients to look online for these services rather than handle them in-house?

Then it makes sense to become a Referral Program Partner! By doing so, you don’t have to get involved personally in your clients’ business filings; you refer them to us instead and earn a referral fee. Your clients get a trusted incorporation resource that provides them with fast, personalized service. And they’ll save a lot of money. All the while, you’ll enhance your reputation as a trusted advisor and open a new revenue stream for your business.

Besides the revenue potential, what other benefits can I expect from the CorpNet Partner Program?

As a CorpNet Partner, you will differentiate your business from your competitors and give customers more reasons to rely on your expertise. Moreover, you can increase customer interactions and boost customer satisfaction.

Earlier this year, I presented two webinars that feature the CorpNet Partner Program and its benefits:

I invite you to watch them to find out more about how our program can benefit you and your clients. The CorpNet Partner Program is a win for all involved.
