Paypal Chained Payments MarketPress and ProSites

I have a complicated site (of course everyone thinks that.. lol)

1) I have products that will be sold, and affiliate payments are to be paid to up to 5 levels of people. I’ve shut off the global products and added the paypal chaining gateway only to be set up.. These products are ordered each time they want them set up as single sales, there may be a future option that we need a recurring type of order, but for now, it’s the single order.

2) We are also doing pro sites, and need to be able to do the paypal chaining with that… Since you’ve done it not he market press side, I’m assuming that it can be done on the pro sites side as well…

So my questions are

1) can we add multiple receivers in market press. If so, how, right now I only see one set…

2) can we add the Paypal chaining gateway to ProSites as well, or how soon…

    Hi Jamie,

    I’m not quite sure if I understood the first part of your questions completely so please feel free to correct me there. I’m guessing by “receivers” you’re referring to affiliates? Is that correct?

    If so, MarketPress itself doesn’t provide affiliate integration as yet and a multi-level affiliates configuration would be quite a bit more complicated, something that would require quite a bit of custom work, though I do imagine it could be done.

    As for PayPal chained payments in Pro-Sites, how do you imagine something like that working? Are you referring more to affiliate referrals, which you’d like the payments chained for? If so, that would actually be more of an affiliate development issue rather than Pro-Site.

    Just to check though, are you thinking of all this in relation to our own Affiliate plugin?

    Our original thought was to use the affiliate plugin – with both market press and supporter, but then pro sites came out. Basically, I need multi-level affiliates for both physical products sold, and for sites that they are using to sell the products…

    1) the product inventor

    2) the web designer/hosting co

    3) the owner / affiliate who brings the business…

    and there could be two more levels when it is branched out..

    Does that make sense?

    We need this actually very quickly, so need to see if WPMUDev has this in the works (someone hinted at multi-level affiliates at one point in the past few months), or do you have any recommended programmers that we can use to customize the plugins to make this work…

    Well, we’re working on MarketPress+Affiliate integration though I don’t have an ETA. We have a developer looking into it, but another plugin update is a higher priority at the moment. If I had to guess I’d say 4-6 weeks, but that’s a total guess – don’t hold me to it! :slight_smile:

    The multi-level aspect is definitely something for a custom project. Thanks.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
