sell Winamp on my website ?

hello

i search but never find in the forum

Why don't nullsoft encorage to sell Winamp on different website
for example make 10% for the reseller who paid it via another website ?

i explain : for people who don't speak well english it should be interesting to have it on website who speak their language
The new localisation could be better selled...


what do you think about ?

Read the distribution agreement, if it fits your idea you might be on to something, but I would doubt that it does.

You can't sell something that is essentially free ( the core of the program is, the only thing you are paying for in pro is ripping plugin and cd burning licensing fees)

Anyhow, enjoy.

mmm nonono i just want to mean that ....it would be grat to have one system of partnership, refer id
for example
for people of my website..it could be one button "clic to buy winamp in french"
www.winamp.com/buy?idreffer=glop
anf for example for 100$ of benefit 10 for me
i think nullsoft made lots more of money (cause people want to sell it to win something

(uuh am i a little more understandable ? )

I'd quite like to sponge off Winamp's brand name too - could I be a UK English reseller?

I'll sell a free product, re-sell ripping and burning support, and provide a link somewhere on the website to a UK English language pack, that adds the 'u' back into colour wherever it's used. This I could fully automate using some php billing software that is way more secure than anything AOL could come up with, multinational that they are... (actually, that last part might be true...)

Tell you what, I'll only charge a 10% cut for it....

As Nullsoft is owned by AOL, you could try writing to them at: AOL, 80 Hammersmith Road, London, England, W14 8UD

I got their address from the uk web page - perhaps there is something similar you could try on http://www.aol.fr ?


Having said that, I doubt it will be useful....

Winamp is already free, and the language packs are already free.

http://www.winamp.com/plugins/browse...e=P&category=9

So I'm not really sure what you are selling.

He means getting referrer kickbacks. Like on Amazon if you're "referred by a friend" (by clicking a link on their site) the friend gets some cash for referring you when you buy stuff.

It's a pretty good model, but not one that's used for Winamp (nor that would be very useful for Winamp, I expect).
