Step 1 - Product Assessment Test

As part of our quality assurance process for our customers - we assess all the products we intend to sell globally prior to entering into any distribution agreement with you and your company. We assess the publisher producing the product (your company), your Web Site, the complete product range offered by your company, the individual products themselves and their commercial potential based on the market sector they are in and the pricing and licensing model you have chosen for the product.

How do I join the ComponentSource Publisher Program?

  • Please download our Product Assessment Form (PAF - a short 2 page document)
  • Answer all the questions in the document and include your Web Site address
  • Email the completed document to us at: publishers@componentsource.com
  • Please also include a full product price list in a PDF or Excel file
  • We will assess your product to analyze the quality and commercial potential
  • We will then give you feedback - usually within 2-3 business days
  • If we say "Yes - we are interested in marketing your product" see below. If we say "No - we are not interested right now", we will usually suggest how you can improve the product(s) such that we would be happy to re-assess them for you.

If we say "Yes - we are interested in marketing your product" - we will then discuss entering into a worldwide marketing and distribution agreement with your company. The exact agreement we will enter into with you will be based on the products that you have and marketing program tier that you wish to join. Usually you will be asked to join at either the Professional Partner or Author tier level.
