I would like to create a niche market place that has similar features to Ebay. I have a few questions that are still not answered even though I did a lot of reading. Plugins enabled relating to this matter with multi site enabled; Buddypress, Marketpress and Pro-site.
1. Can I setup my main market on a subsite and still be able to use the global widgets to list all products from the other stores within my network.
2. Is it possible to allow members to chose;
a.Create a store via creating a subsite, and I get a cut of their sales.( I know that this is possible as this is what marketpress is designed to do) However is it possible to give these options;
i. they can either create a store for free and I take a percentage of each sale or
ii. they pay a monthly subscription and I won’t take a cut of the sales.
b. Upload their products on my site without creating a store. As not everyone has a business and can sell many items, some people just want to sell just one item eg a used book, used phone etc. So it wouldn’t be convenient for them nor for me to create a store just to sell one item. (I know this will require a front end user to allow members to upload products which I am aware of) So my questions regarding this point;
i. is this possible? if yes how can I set it up from the marketpress settings
ii. can I still get a cut of the their sale, (putting in mind that these members won’t be owning a business paypal account they will just have the normal one just like when you sell an item on Ebay. As from what I read for chain payments the members have to have a paypal account higher than the normal free version)
3.this just a general question. If a member uploaded a fake product lets say a video tutorial and they just uploaded a picture but no video, and a customer bough the product. Who will cover up for this, who will be responsible will paypal cover up for this if I would to use paypal
just to mention I am not a developer so any custom coding would be out of the question unless instructions provided.
Lastly thank you in advance for your help and thanks to the great wpmudev community
and apologies for the long question
