Marketpress vendor pay comission or amount

Does marketpress accept an amount (not percentage)per product to pay us with a vendor sale?

If yes, can the vendor set product price but not be allowed to go below our set price to pay us on a given product?

    Hey Ben,

    Hope you’re doing well today :slight_smile:

    If you’re looking for a single site setup where you will have multiple sellers and take percentage from those sails I’m afraid that this is not possible with MarketPress.

    However, for multisite there’s a global cart you can enable and with this you can configure PayPal chained payments, this way your subsite admins can sell products on their site with their PayPal account but all payments will go through chained payments so you can collect percentage from each sale.

    Having minimum price is not currently possible but it could be interesting addition so perhaps you could start a new thread in our Features & Feedback section and we can consider adding something like that in future if it get’s popular with other users.

    here is my scenario

    Each subsite has it’s own store

    We provide products for each store owner and dropship

    We set an amount for each product that we will receive before split

    Teir 1: There are only 2 entities for split/chained payment, ourselves and 1 vendor/site owner “Bob”

    Possible teir 2: Bob sells the idea to Fred. Bob and Fred get a cut of Freds online sales above the price set for our cut, e.g. Product sells $100. First our cut $50, then split between Bob and Fred $25/$25.

    Can the vendor/subsite owner change price to what he wants to for sale for on his store?

    If so, what happens if he sets price below the amount we set for ourselves?

    Hey there Ben Smith,

    hope you’re doing good and don’t mind chiming in here! :slight_smile:

    Chained payments can only support percentages over payments so in order to make this work with fixed amounts (and further check if products’ prices are inside that fixed limit) it should require some custom coding, most probably hard-coding MarketPress core. As this kind of development surpasses the scope of our support forums, you may have to hire an experience developer to make this for you.

    Feel free to advise our Jobs & Pros section for any kind of custom work (no WPMUDEV staff members included there).

    Warm regards,

    Ok, what about parallel payments? Can you set a fixed Amount to charge the vendor per product?

    eg. Product A we get $10 from vendor when sold

    Product B we get $20 from vendor when sold

    No percentage. Just fee added to each product, not globally .

    Hey there Ben Smith,

    hope you’re doing good today and please excuse our late reply, it’s been quite hectic in our forums lately and we’re trying to follow up with every single member and issue here!

    I’m afraid this isn’t possible with MarketPress either and should be custom implemented.

    You may have to create a new custom field for MP product post type so you could insert the fixed amount of your charge in each product and then use this field value to update product value accordingly.

    Hope that was some help, feel free to post back here if more assistance is required!

    Take care,


Thank NAME, for their help.
