Hi Richard,

We have had multiple enquiries to locals in our area who want to do
exactly this with us. If I could ask.. how did you organise this for
them.. We came up with ideas along the lines of setting up ASP pages for
addition of users, etc etc, but if we give our reseller a big bill with
all the uesrnames on it.. how is he supposed to neatly onbill his
customers etc without manually having to create multiple invoices.. or
is this just what your reseller likes to do.
