2“Agents” are organizations hosting journals for members or other service agencies acting on behalf of members. An Agent acting for multiple members can look up a DOI once, store it in a local system and share it among different member publishers - this is referred to as “sharing or “caching”. An Agent looking up DOIs individually for each member (i.e. not sharing or caching) pays the lower fee.
