Where this get's tricky is that I would like to take a percentage of each sale value instead of charging a subscription or posting fee. That is, if an eBook sold for $10.00, I'd like to have the payment split to send say $1.00 to my paypal account and the other $9.00 to the site member's paypal account.
Does this type of functionality exist in a script anywhere? Could it easily be created or created at all? I would much prefer to do it this way as opposed to having to send a monthly invoice etc.
Thanks for the welcome to the board and for all the quick replies.
I have thought the same as Lisa at first. What I don't particularily like about this idea is that it links me a little too strongly with my site's users. I would like to be more isolated as simply a service provider to link a buyer and a seller. I suppose a good lawyer could do this anyways, but the site is still only in concept so even a drunken lawyer would be pushing the budget :)
Marcia, I'd like to be able to handle both shipped items as well as downloadable items. However if you are thinking of an already existing solution that deals with only one of the two then I'd still love to explore that.
Sun818, if I understand you correctly I think I've unfortunately come to the same conclusion. I will have to find a way to track all sales then send out an invoice at the end of the month. In the ideal situation I could bill clients immediately when I definitely know that they have funds in their account :P Do you have a suggestion for a good opensource bot or 'reverse affiliate' script at anyrate? I'm business major who's done a little tinkering with web applications so programming ability is limited to intermediate at best.
