If you own software, then chances are you have enlisted a third party to sell or license it. Hiring a third party seller is an efficient way to get your product out there, however a number of considerations need to be made for your protection. 

A Software Reseller Agreement will ensure you have all the necessary safeguards to proceed without worry. 

What Is A Software Reseller Agreement? 

A Software Reseller Agreement is a legally binding agreement between the third party seller and yourself. It will cover: 

  • Your liability from the actions of the third party
  • Secure your revenue streams
  • Protect your ownership 
  • Set out relevant limitations 
  • Clarify the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved 

Software reseller agreements are drafted to be unique to business’ specific needs. Therefore, it is not strictly limited to what it can and cannot include. 

Why Do I Need A Software Reseller Agreement? 

Having a third party sell your product has many benefits including a wider customer base and exposure. The downside is that you can’t be in control of the seller’s actions, so it’s important your liabilities are protected. Furthermore, it’s essential to distinguish the finances, roles, and ownership regarding your product. 

Having clear lines and boundaries ensure that all parties are aware of their expected conduct. Failure to communicate and have this in a legally binding agreement can lead to disputes.
