Google is really getting serious about selling Google Apps for Work, its Microsoft Office killer, to more businesses.
Currently, the standard commission it pays is 20%, sources close to Google told the Wall Street Journal(http://online.wsj.com/articles/google-makes-move-on-microsoft-in-workplace-1417646737). To do the math: at the low end, Google sells Apps for $50/user/year, which gives the reseller a $10/user/year commission, while Google keeps $40. On the high end, it costs $120/user/year, which equates to $48 commission for year for the reseller while Google keeps $72
For resellers that sell more, Google will now give them a bigger commission. Plus they will be encouraged to sell other services to Google Apps customers (like support, training, and customization).
This move is one of a series that Google is making to win over Microsoft.
Google hasn't publicly released details of the new commission plan. But it did post this blog telling resellers all the great new things it plans to do for them. Ref: http://googleforwork.blogspot.in/
