UBNT partners

Is there no sort of partner program or reseller program for UBNT?  It does not appear they sell through any sort of channel since direct end users can purchase their products online.  I emailed their sales team via their website weeks ago and have never recieved a reply.

UBNT ----> Distributors -----> Resellers ------> End-users.

 

UBNT only "partners" with distributors. If you are wanting to be a reseller contact your nearest distributor. No end-user can buy directly from UBNT except maybe for the Airfiber units to my knowledge.

Only problem is anyone can go to streakwave and buy the equipment.  Which means no margin on equipment.  The products look great.  Just wish they would sell through some sort of channel, and wish sales would respond to emails.

What you're seeing may look unusual, but it's part of their strategy for keeping costs down by only selling in very large volume from the factory.   If you need to buy entire shipping containers of radios, I'm sure UBNT would love to talk with you directly...Biggrin5

I support the exisitng model, why should anyone have to deal with 3-4 markups before I buy?  Infact if this were to change I would rethink my design. The days of easy money are long gone Man Happy

Re: UBNT partners

Reply to the comment about Streakwave. Yes, anyone can go there and buy, but Streakwave has different prices depending on if you are a regular end-user or a repeat buyer which resells. They keep the markup of the equipment intact so other resellers do not loose that much profit. I mean they also make more money too, so why should they sell to one time buyers with reseller prices? It would hurt them in the long run selling to one timers that way. If you are wanting to be a reseller with Streakwave, talk with them, order monthly, and resell with the mark up you want but don't expect big discounts if you order a couple of units a year. Just pay the little bit extra and be thankful it is not as high as what some sell UBNT products for.

And *THAT* requires a decent supply chain.

Re: UBNT partners

I enquired about becoming a distributor or bulk ordering direct from ubnt.

To do so required an order of at least $700,000 USD

Re: UBNT partners

We are a reseller of Ubiquiti and buy direct from the approved distributors. Have been doing so since the begining of 2018. We found out that theses items move quick and hit many inventory issues with distributors. Our sales volum is so high we reached out to Ubiquiti directly to try to buy direct. I dont think the $700K threshold you talked about is still valid. Now, in order to buy direct you must do $1.5M/month in sales. 

 

Almost there!
