Becoming a VoIP Wholesaler

By: Kristen

From sending messages by tying the same to pigeons, to the invention of traditional public switch telephony network and finally to IP telephony, we have come a long way in terms of communication and technology. The telecom industry has undergone a tremendous change with the invention of VoIP telephony service. VoIP service providers provide their services to corporates, wholesale VoIP carriers and VoIP resellers. Wholesale providers of VoIP further resell their services to resellers, who in turn sell VoIP minutes to end-users or residentials. The main difference between a wholesaler and a reseller is the volume of their business. A wholesaler usually has a large clientage spread across a given area; whereas a reseller would normally have a comparatively smaller client base.



In order to decide whether you should start up as a wholesaler or a reseller, one should consider their client base. If you have a large clientÃ?le or enough marketing force to create one then VoIP wholesale is a profitable venture to take up. One needs to remember that in order to sell the service, comprehensive knowledge about the technicalities of VoIP is not needed. Rather what are needed are excellent marketing skills to sell it to the clients. It would suffice if a wholesaler has a decent knowledge of the workings of VoIP services, so as to be able to maintain his own equipments. In order to start up as a VoIP wholesaler, one will have to spend a considerable amount of money in setting up the infrastructure and in purchasing the technical equipments needed for call transmission such as gateways, switches etc. However, the gains from this field are high and this is precisely why an increasingly large number of people have set up wholesale services of voice over IP.

The main advantage of being a wholesaler of voice over internet protocol is that since they provide maximum traffic to the provider, they are able to command the market price of VoIP minutes. Hence, it is definitely a profitable venture to take up.
