How much can you make selling mobile proxies?

Your income depends on the number of proxies you plan to sell. Usually, the kickback is from 1,000 RUB a month per phone for Russian proxies, from $25-30 a month per phone for European ones, from $40-50 a month per phone for US ones and from $20 a month per phone for CIS region proxies (Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Armenia, etc.).

Subtotal: if you sell 50 mobile proxies in Russia, you can make from 50k RUB/month, in Europe - from 1,250 $/month, in the US - from 2,000 $/month.

How many proxies will I be able to sell?

The demand for mobile proxies in the US and Europe is insane, they are needed by both webmasters from the CIS region and webmasters from all over the world, from Asia to Latin America and Australia.

Mobile proxies in the US and Europe can be sold in quantities of 1,000 mobile proxies per month. Your earnings will be from 1000x25=25,000 $/month in Europe and from 1000x40=40,000 $/month in the USA.

With such volumes, you will need an assistant, as well as locations for placing phones in: these can be ordinary apartments, rented offices, or even a car.

The demand for proxies in the CIS region (not counting Russia) has grown, stemming from the fact that many website have been blocked in Russia. You can easily sell 50-100 mobile proxies a month. Scaling your operation up to 200-300 mobile proxies a month is more than doable.

The demand for mobile proxies in Russia has gone down as of April 1, 2022, and the market is also saturated with a large number of offers. Therefore, it isn’t the best GEO to choose at the moment. We are following the news and will update the information in this article in case of any changes.

Which phones should I use?

Almost any Android will do. If you already have some at hand, test them out.

Where should I place my phones?

It can be an apartment, an office or even a car. Just so long as the phones are located in a place where the connection is the best, so as to ensure good Internet speed.

What should I keep in mind?

That we have a fast-working tech support service in case your customers have any questions.

What technical characteristics should my proxies have in order to be in demand among buyers?

Proxy stability. iProxy.online takes measures to ensure the connection is stable. The seller’s task remains - to provide high-quality support to customers and provide excellent Internet speed

How to ensure high proxy speed?

Choose mobile operators whose connection is better in your location

  • Rent offices next to mobile towers
  • Use more expensive phone models that are better at establishing a connection
  • Connect the Wi-Fi Split feature, contact tech support for more details
  • Set up a proxy car farm and leave the car next to a mobile tower :)

For our purposes, a download and upload speed of at least 10 Mbps will do just fine. Buyers often demand speeds of 20+ Mbps, even though they don’t actually need it. Websites with speeds well within 4 Mbps load quickly and Youtube manages to support HD quality.

There is no unlimited mobile internet in my country. What do I do?

Connect the Wi-Fi Split feature, contact tech support for more details.

How and where to look for clients

  • Just like in any business, you first need to look for customers on your own.
  • After that existing customers will scale your client base themselves.
  • Then word of mouth will kick in.
  • Focus on finding and working with large (wholesale) customers, ones that order at least 5-10 phones. Practice shows that orders for 50-100+ proxies from one client are real. With large clients, you will have less on-the-ground work with payments/support. Wholesale clients are more professional, tend to have actual budgets, and don’t ask newbie questions.
  • Offer your services in our chat and on the PROXY.broker website. Your message will not be considered spam and will not be deleted by admins.
  • Should your activities prove successful and you manage to roll out 5 working proxies within a certain time frame, you’ll be able to make it onto the list of trusted sellers.

How to sell

The points listed below are advisory in nature. This is our accumulated experience that can help you at the start:

  • Don’t offer free tests. There are lots of “freeloaders” who will ask you for a free test under the guise of various accounts and then just disappear.
  • Instead of a free test, offer a paid one for a short amount of time, say, for a couple of hours or 1-3 days.
  • Create a Telegram channel advertising your services. Invite your target audience to it.
  • Create your own website. A nice full-fledged website inspires more confidence among buyers.
  • Place ads on forums. In Google Yandex, hit up queries for target topics, like, “mobile proxies forum”, you’ll find lots of forums where you can register and create your own thread for free. If you want, you can test ad formats on these forums.
  • Collect feedback on your services. For example, create a Telegram channel that will send messages with reviews from your customers or invite your customers to leave feedback on the forum, in return you can provide them with a discount on proxies for the next month.

Will iProxy help me find clients?

  • Yes, you can make your way into the list of trusted sellers.
  • You are allowed to make 1 post per month in our Тelegram community.
  • Posts about sellers are periodically published in our official Тelegram channel.
  • When we at iProxy get a user request to rent ready-made mobile proxies, we provide a link to an article with a list of verified providers.

How to scale my operation?

Take 1-2 phones, set up iProxy. Make sure that toggling Airplane mode changes the IP address, that the voice assistant triggered IP address (or root rights) change is set up properly and that the phone’s upload/download speed is decent.

As soon as sales start, depending on your retail margin and phone costs, on average your ROI should go over 100% in 2 or 3 months.

Depending on the demand and your capabilities, you can scale the number of phones you use more smoothly or more dramatically.

How are mobile proxy farms on Phones better than farms on USB modems?

An easy setup that any ordinary, non-tech-savvy person will be able to figure out. Doesn’t require any coding skills, with all the know-how you need covered in the iProxy blog and FAQ.

iProxy.online is a service with advanced features, which is improved on a daily basis by narrow-profile highly qualified specialists. When working with iProxy, you get an entire plethora of features.

  • HTTP, SOCKS5 support
  • Rotation setup

  • A Telegram bot for notifications and IP address changes
  • API support
  • Uptime, which will promptly notify you that the proxies have been disconnected or vice versa - are once again online
  • Consumed traffic count
  • Recording and storing logs (which websites were visited, when and from which IP address)
  • Proxy access points manager. Create however many access-points to proxies you need, up to 15 on the BigDaddy Pro tariff. Leave comments on them, issue different levels of access to different buyers

  • IP address authorization

  • IP address history
  • Setting how long the phone remains in Airplane mode
  • Seamless IP address change (no waiting)
  • The “Unique IP address” feature - checks whether the IP address matches any of the previous ones and if so, makes the phone re-toggle Airplane mode
  • Black/Whitelist for websites. Setting load limit for proxy access points. This will allow you to sell shared or semi-private proxies and guarantee quality to each client.

As for USB modems, you need to develop and maintain all the necessary tech features on your own, you are also tied to a specific location and forced to move the equipment when getting a new proxy access point.

But, to the credit of USB modems, they can usually provide a better Internet connection than phones.

Private, shared or semi-private proxies. What’s the difference and which ones to sell?

Private mobile proxies - issued to a single client. This ensures that the client is the only one working with the resource, and that no other people are using the same IP address.

Shared mobile proxies - issued to multiple people, usually to 3-5 clients at the same time. There’s a chance that clients will visit the same website simultaneously, say, Google. The latter may consider the simultaneous actions of different users from the same IP address as spam and lower the accounts’ trust level. At the same time, regular buyers of shared proxies know well how to work with this format and they’re fine with that risk, most likely they work on unpopular sites, and the risks of the account getting banned are next to zero.

Semi-private mobile proxies - also issued to multiple people, the difference from shared ones is that each client promises to work only on a specific resource. For example, one works through Yandex, while another - through Google. Thus, the proxy access settings are tuned so as to forbid the first guy to visit Google and the second - Yandex. This guarantees that clients won’t accidentally overlap each other when working with target websites.

Private mobile proxies are usually high in demand. In case your client will find your price a bit too steep, you can offer them shared or semi-private proxies, say, at cost price. This will guarantee you won’t go into the red.

For example, the iProxy Simcard+ tariff plan costs 2,000 RUB/month, so offer the client shared/semi-private proxies for 2,000 RUB/month. Once you get another client for shared/semi-private proxies, sell them for 2,000 RUB/month again and secure your profit that way.

For shared and semi-private proxies you set up rotation, usually every 5 or 10 minutes. On an individual basis, you can set up other rotation periods with specific clients. Rotation is necessary to make sure the actions of your customers stay unique.
