BILLmanager has a built-in module supporting integration with Tucows.

You need to install and set up the panel to start working in BILLmanager.

To resell services, you need to complete the following steps:

  • Configure a processing module. Processing module is a module that communicates with an external application (Tucows).
  • Add and configure a tariff plan.

Processing module

Go to Integration-> Processing module to set up integration between BILLmanager and Tucows. Click the Add button to open the Wizard:

  • Step 1. Select a product type. Choose Domains.
  • Step 2. Select a processing module. In the form that will open, you can see all of the services that BILLmanager is integrated with. Choose Tucows.
  • Step 3. Set up integration. Enter login details to your Tucows account, or get registered with Tucows , and then configure the processing module once again.

  • Step 4. Set up processing module. Enter a name for the processing module, and select a department that will handle issues, if any.

Tariff plan

Go to Products -> Tariff plans

  • Step 1. Select a product type. Choose Domains.
  • Step 2. Add and configure a tariff plan. Enter a domain price, minimum order period, etc.

When creating a tariff plan, in the Additional setting tab you can specify the domain zone and connect the registrar that you have already created in the service processing module.

Additional information

On the last step, BILLmanager will try to connect to the registrar with parameters specified above. If the operation fails, you will see the following error:

Failed to connect to the processing module. Please make sure you have entered the correct URL, username/password, and try again

To resolve the issue, make sure that:

  • Access data are correct.
  • Registrar's Url is accessible from the server with BILLmanager.
  • in the registrar's client area API calls are allowed from BILLmanager IP address.

Domain import from registrar

The Tucows integration module does not support import of domain names from registrar.

Logging

The following log contains all the information related to the registrar:
