    I think being an Affiliate is better than being a reseller. An affiliate dont need capital to start a business while a reseller needs a capital to start a business. Being a reseller includes taking risks while being an affiliate is just earning safe.

    I agree with shinrei, I prefer affiliate marketing. In affiliate marketing you are more in advertising the products. You will not have any responsibilities in the selling the product. Your role is just like reffering potential clients to the product. If it happened that they bought the product that is the time you will get a commision. What I most like in this marketing is that you don't need to invest money on it. There are a lot of products that you can promote and the payout (commision) is much higher.

    Affiliate marketing is better, you just need to create a blog and start advertising the products from the affiliate company. You will start earning the commission once you direct people to buy from your links.

    For me, affiliate marketing is better than reselling. Reselling takes much work and it somehow limits you in offering certain product due to cost. Affiliate marketing offers a wide range of products that you can advertise. Which can be flexible, with you not worrying about the investments. You can also promote products that are complimentary to yours. It offers a higher income potential and it does not require a huge audience to work.

    Affiliate is very interesting with a very small amount of dedication, while being a reseller is much more risky, and probably much costs to make a decent amount of €'s imo. Good luck!

    affiliate marketing is your choice if you want to be on the safe side, don't want to spend anything but time. the risk factor is very minimal to none. In short its boring! If your a risk taker this will bore you to death.

    Yes, affiliate marketing is great since it just removes all the hassles needed in setting up your online store. You just need to drive in traffic for someone else products and you get a commission if you get a sale out from it. However, if you have a really profitable product and has a lot of potential for a good market, selling it by yourself online might also help to get a lot more profit. Or, you can also do drop-shipping whichever is much more profitable and if it's alright for you to put on a little more effort in setting up your e-store.

    It actually depends on your ability. If youre good in persuading people to get revenues from their sign up, then do for affiliate. But if you are good in advertising and handling money, you should go with reselling. Both actually has pros and cons. But what is important is your desire. For me, i prefer reselling more because affiliating is risking. Without people signing up on your terms, you would not get anything. But in reselling, especially i today's generation, it wouldnt be hard to find buyers.

    For me I will go for affiliate, it's risk free and you dont need to invest money to do business, just be hard working and confident in promoting your products. Just focus on your target market, soon they will buy products to you.

    Shinrei is right, being an affiliate is risk free. I tried selling online as a reseller, you really need to pay the product before they send it. You have to have funds for it, and worst is, if your client is not satisfied with the item they will return it to you which, you cannot return to your supplier. Some people really cannot follow simple rules, and because you don't want arguments you will just break your own rule.

    It is exact in any cases because more people got thousands of $$$ with affiliate programs while with reseller then you need to choose right providers and having good marketing campaigns to have more clients bought products on your sites.

    Actually, betterment depends on your motive. If you want to build a web hosting company, reseller hosting can be a starting point. But with affiliation doing hosting business is not possible. Again, maintaining a blog or content writing is more friendly with affiliation.

    Depends on your time and dedication and goal to do on both. Reseller needs a little bit of expertise on the side so you could accumulate nice profit in a short amount of time. Spending time on research on where to properly introduce your goods and more importantly managing your investment In affiliate, it is also somehow similar since you need to work on sharing your affiliations to different sites across the entire internet. But the investment here is your time. Both will give you positive results at the end of a hard work but with reselling, if done properly will gain you so much more than being an affiliate. Of course with greater investment comes greater results.
