IT reseller

Contributor(s): Ivy Wigmore

An IT reseller is an intermediary entity in the distribution channel that purchases software and/or hardware from the manufacturer or some other entity, such as a wholesaler or a distributor, and sells it to consumers.  

Resellers include both retailers, who simply buy and sell products, and value-added resellers (VARs), who take an existing product, add something to it (such as a special computer application), and resell it as a new product.
