cPanel billing system for reseller account

Posted on 2006-05-05

I've got a cPanel reseller account under a host, and I've been reselling accounts for the past few months.

It's come time I need a billing system of some time (rather than manual invoicing, etc.) so I went to look for some.

I had a look at ubersmith & modernbill, but it seems like they require root cPanel accounts...

Do you know any billing systems that'd work with reseller accounts on cPanel servers?

    Hi khooc,

    ModernBill is nice and has a lot of features. It takes some time to get used to it but once you have it all set up, it works quite well. Support is also quite good.

    ModernBill asks for a root account, but this doesn't need to be THE actual root account. It just needs the reseller username.

    I cannot remember exactly how to set it up but I know that I've definitely done it before to test it. It definitely worked on a reseller account.

    To find out the exact steps, you could contact the ModernBill pre-sales support...

    I have a few CPanel servers and have looked at just about every possible billing solution there is... I had ModernBill which was a total PITA to install and really didn't like the way it functioned.  

    I am currently using AWBS, mostly because of it's integration with RVSkins (which I like very much -- RVSkins, that is).  

    However, I've been looking at Ubersmith and LPanel which have been getting some great reviews.

    You're welcome!

    There are also some others that I've tried...
    Whois.Cart - which has a lot of features, isn't very expensive, but I think is difficult to figure out and customize
    HostDirector - very simple, effective, easy to customize, *excellent* support, but as I said, quite simple and may lack features for a lot of people
    PHPCoin - very nice, lots of features, free, but may have some bugs that or non-bugs that need ironing out. Got extremely annoyed with the development team though. There was supposed to be a major version upgrade (commercial version) to be released December 2004. This turned into December 2005, then January, February, March, and nothing. The actual developers may not be at fault, but the rest of the team (in my opinion) are not very efficient, and lack communication skills big-time. Eventually, they seem to have erased all references to the new version and discussions from their forums. Anyway, when it is eventually released, December of some year :-) I reckon it will be a nice piece of software...
