There are a lot of costs that go into this sort of thing. There is no way to get cheaper WHMCS licenses, unless you join their reseller program, which I believe you have to have a total of like 10-15 licenses or something like that active in order to join that program. Otherwise, you can resell services from another company that bundles WHMCS for it, but then you run into a 'service quality issue'. Like how reliable is that company, do they have an uptime guarantee? Do they honor their uptime guarantee like they say they do? Is their support responsive if you need them for something quickly? What kind of support do they offer; phone, live chat, email; skype, etc.? There are a lot of questions to ask yourself or to ask the provider for which you are wanting to do business with.

When you are dealing with licenses, there are all sorts of fees... WHMCS, cPanel/WHM, the server, Softaculous, and any other software, such as JetBackup, Zamfoo, WHMReseller, etc. You can get cPanel/WHM licenses for $14.95/mo for VPS machines, Softaculous is about $2.00/mo and then all other software pricing varies.

Hope this helps, have a great day.

I know that you can get things cheaper with certain qualifiers. For example, cheaper WHMCS licenses. How might we go about asking vendors for lower costs? Any advice would be appreciated.

We have factored in the obvious costs like servers, WHMCS licenses, SSL's, etc. Is there anything we might be overlooking in deciding to offer these services?

Another alternative to Whmcs is Blesta, which is quite good.

You can also consider purchasing a Reseller Package that doesn't include Billing Software (WHMCS, ClientExec, Blesta etc') and instead, purchase the license for the software yourself. You then have full ownership and control. There are plenty of packages out there for just a few dollars a month.

Blesta is also good but not that much addons available for blesta when compared to whmcs and almost all the addons are developed keeping whmcs in mind.

Blesta is a decent alternative to WHMCS, but for my money, I'm sticking with WHMCS for now.
