Purchase from a Google Workspace reseller has
more benefits than buying from Google
Some resellers would provide consultation and technical support. In addition, a reseller usually accepts several Google Workspace payment methods while Google only accepts Google Workspace payment by credit cards.
Receive 1on1 pre-migration consultation from the reseller
Google doesn’t provide any consultation on deployment and migration. The sign up page of the Google Workspace website is served merely as a point of purchase. Buyers will have to do the settings all by themselves so it’s more suitable for tech savvy buyers to purchase directly from Google’s website. However, if you’re buying Google Workspace for the first time and need some guidance from the exports for risk avoidance considerations, an experienced Google Workspace reseller would be a go to option for you.
Google Workspace reseller provides better technical support than Google
If you purchase Google Workspace through a reseller, when you encounter technical problems after the implementation, you can get technical support from the reseller (via phone and email ). Other value-added services such as Google Workspace training course is also available for you to purchase with Google Workspace. However, if you purchase through Google, there will be no after-sales support provided. You will have to find and read the official document provided online. Therefore, if you do not possess the knowledge and technical skills related to email system, it is recommended to purchase it from the resellers. If problems occur, you can get technical support from them immediately. On the other hand, there are not many differences in buying Google Workspace through Google and a reseller if you’ve got related technical skills.
Reseller accepts wire transfer while Google only accepts credit cards
The official payment method is credit card, and the reseller provides transfer, remittance, and payment in local currency. Therefore, users who do not want cross-border trading, or those who wish to pay in local currency with the internal financial operations of the company to reduce costs induced by exchange rate, are recommended to purchase Google Workspace from the reseller. However, if there is no such demand and you do not mind paying by credit card, you may also purchase it officially.
