Is MarketPress right for me?

I have a client that is looking to make a unique combination store. They want to sell other people’s items in their store, allow those people to login and see sales data, export orders, etc, but the site owner – not the vendors – will be adding/managing the products on the store. The site owner would take a percentage of each sale.

I like how MarketPress has the ability to take a percentage of sales built right in. However, we don’t want each vendor to have the ability to manage products – only site owner will manage products. Can MarketPress be setup so the site acts like a single store, but still do the percentage of sales from each vendor?

The site is going to actually be a daily deals site – with up to 12 deals going on at any given time. I imagine it would be relatively easy to extend the plugin to include product expiration dates.
