How can I charge an amount automatically to user before publishing a product from a seller?

How can i charge a product upload fee to the seller once the admin approves the product?

    Greetings eric_aguilar,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    Thank you for the great question.

    How are you using the Market Press plugin? With chained payments or?

    The reason why I ask is in the case of chained payments it determines payment on sale.

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using only paypal express checkout, and I would like to charge a fee under two conditions: a percentage on the sale amount and a fee for uploading a product, just like etsy. Maybe have sort of a monthly bill automatically emailed to the uploader. Unfortunately chained payments or the other mode of adaptive payments is not available in my country, so I need to somehow adapt the billing system.

    I guess it sounds kind of difficult but would like to track everything on the admin site to keep control, that's why I need these features.

    Greetings Eric,

    Thank you for the intriguing billing idea and how to handle this individually is certainly going to be a challenge.

    This is certainly beyond the intended use and of course not a feature we currently offer nor a configuration we support.

    The best suggestion I can offer right now is to see if there's a developer available at wpmu jobs who could get onto it right this minute.

    Or use a third party billing system to send invoices and/or charge their PayPal account for each manual approval.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!
