3.7 Under “Service plan” select the previously created service plan that you want to assign to this customer.
3.8 Click the “Add Customer” button to save the client account with the domain name and service package.
Now you know how to create customers and how to subscribe them to your services
You have now created service plans (hosting plans) for your customers, created customer accounts with related domain names, created Plesk login for your customers and subscribed these customers to your hosting plans. Of course a lot more is possible with your reseller account, for example have you already looked at the branding options with which you can implement your own brand in your hosting panels?
