# Difference between partner plan & agency plan
There are a couple of differences between our partner plan & agency plan(which include agency plan, agency plus plan & app sumo Tier5 plan).
The list of the difference is below:
Custom pricing/Custom plan
Non-UChat branded app(connect with 3rd party)
Template store customization
Mini app customization
Non-UChat branded mobile app
Priority support & Premium template & Training
# Custom billing
The main difference between the partner plan & agency plan is that the agency plan is using UChat official pricing, and the customer pays to UChat first, and you can get 20% revenue sharing to your stripe account.
But the partner plan allows you to set up your own pricing, your own plan, and your own checkout page, and the customer pays to you first, and after deducting the cost of the workspace or add-on, you can keep 100% of the profit.
You can set up your own billing page at your partner settings under white-label settings(only available for partner program):
Our cost price of workspace and add on to our partner is:
$10/workspace(business plan, 1 bot, 5 members, 1000 bot users)
$5 per month for every extra bot
$5 per month for every extra member
$5 per month for every extra 1000 bot users
$30 per month for every extra 10000 bot users
For example, for an agency plan, if you have set up your own custom domain, and also connect your stripe account to your main plan, your customer can sign up at your custom domain, and every workspace will get started for 14 days of access to all the pro features.
If the customer decides to upgrade to a paid plan, they will subscribe to UChat's official pricing(which might change in the future), and 20% of the revenue share will be sent to your Stripe account every month.
UChat’s official pricing starts at $10 per month, your client might get billed for the extra bot, member or bot users. Say their bill for this month is $10 per month, and you will get $2 per month into your stripe account.
Now, for the partner program, if you are selling our business plan at $49 per month, and our cost of this workspace is $10 per month, then you can keep the $39 per month profit to yourself.
That’s the gist of the difference regarding the billing.
# Custom pricing/plan
Partners will have the option to set up their own pricing & plans. Partners can design their plans based on the variations in the number of bots, members & bot users.
After you decide on your pricing & plan, you can reach out to support to add those pricing & plans to your backend.
And then you can upgrade the customer manually or automatically through our partner API.
Agency plans don’t have this feature, because their customers subscribe to UChat official pricing & plan.
# Feature customization
Partners will have the option to disable or enable different features for the plans they have. For example, disable the Omni channel in the starter plan, and only offer this channel in the higher plan.
You will have all the options to disable or enable channels, features, and integrations that UChat offers.
Agency plans don’t have this feature.
# Partner API
Since the agency plan is using UChat's official pricing, they don’t need to upgrade the custom workspace. But they can check all the workspaces including free and paid plans under their custom domain.
You can find all the workspace under your custom domain under the workspaces tab.
UChat partner plans do offer the option for the owner to manually upgrade their customer’s workspace or automatically upgrade using partner API.
Our partner API documentation is here (opens new window).
Also, UChat partners will get access to free step-by-step training to set up the checkout automation with Thrivecart or Chatbot.
The whole purchase, cancellation or rebill failure process can be automated.
More details about the free training are here:
# Non-UChat branded app
