Frequently Asked Questions


What are the payment options offered in the plugin besides PayPal?

The payment methods available in the plugin are paypal and Cash on Delivery(COD). Yet, we can add aditional payment gateways by creating a module for that and placing it into modules/checkout directory. We can add payment gateways such as, eway, 2checkout etc.

Exactly how will the commission system work?

Admin can define the commission system as a flat rate or as a certain percentage of the product or both. All the payments are added into administrator account during the product sales. Members can withdraw the amount from the system when they wish to take it. The release of the funds depends on the 'Withdraw Options' administartor has configured. We have options like 
Moderation with Escrow.
The payments are released based on this configuration using paypal.

On the payment flow, the balance(Total-fees) sits in the admin(webmaster) paypal account until the seller(user) withdraws it.
