Market Press Kunaki and S3 Integration and Chained Payments Set Up

I am an independent film maker and wanted to set up a store that would help me streamline the sales and distribution of my films and products.

I purchased the wpmu membership because I wanted to have a flexible wordpress ecommerce solution that could handle multiple stores and paypal chained payments.

I don’t have time to handle all the film making and production on top of the distribution and accounting. I thought this plugin was the answer to my prayers but I am having a very hard time with it.

I was hoping I could explain what I was looking to do and solicit some help from experts on executing it. If I need some custom development I would appreciate any recommendations on where to find that.

I would like to create multiple stores where each one housed a different group of products.

Fake Example:

Store A: Fly Tying Videos

Requirements: Each video has a different production deal, so through chained payments I need XX% of sales to go to xxxx@xyz.com, XX% of sales to go to xxx@abc.com, and XX% of sales to go to xxxxxx@jkl.com. I also need the video to be for sale as a digital download, as well as have the option to be ordered as a hard copy DVD. Digital Downloads will be housed on Amazon S3 and need to be downloaded from there. DVD duplication is handled through kunaki.com so each order of a hard copy needs to be relayed to kunaki.com through their XML api which more info can be found on here: http://kunaki.com/XMLService.htm

Store B: Fly Fishing Videos

Requirements: Each video has a different production deal, so through paypal chained payments I need XX% of sales to go to xxxx@xyz.com, XX% of sales to go to xxx@abc.com, and XX% of sales to go to xxxxxx@jkl.com. I also need the video to be for sale as a digital download, as well as have the option to be ordered as a hard copy DVD. Digital Downloads will be housed on Amazon S3 and need to be downloaded from there. DVD duplication is handled through kunaki.com so each order of a hard copy needs to be relayed to kunaki.com through their XML api which more info can be found on here: http://kunaki.com/XMLService.htm

Store C: Fly Fishing Products Sold and Fulfilled by us.

Requirements: Each item has a different sales split, so through paypal chained payments I need XX% of sales to go to xxxx@xyz.com, XX% of sales to go to xxx@abc.com, and XX% of sales to go to xxxxxx@jkl.com. These are physical hard goods that I have in inventory and will need to keep track of, and ship myself. We will handle this store’s upkeep.

Store D: Fly Fishing Products Sold and Fulfilled by someone else.

Requirements: Each item has the same sales split XX% of sales to go to xxx@abc.com, and XX% of sales to go to xxxxxx@jkl.com. These are physical hard goods that someone else has in inventory and will be kept track of, and shipped by someone else. We are simple collecting a percentage for providing the marketplace. The items and inventory will be handled through the WordPress back end by someone else.

We would also like to have local fly shops put a link up on their site for the sale of our DVD’s and Downloadable videos, we need a way to manage their payment for each sale that can be directly attributed to them.

I have fiddled around with the chained payments in the Dashboard of the site I installed for all this and I’m am having an AWFUL problem just figuring out how to activate chained payments. I have figured out the API Credentials but can’t figure out any of this:

“You must register this application with PayPal using your business account login to get an Application ID that will work with your API credentials. A bit of a hassle, but worth it! In the near future we will be looking for ways to simplify this process. Register then submit your application while logged in to the developer portal. Note that you do not need an Application ID for testing in sandbox mode. More Information »
