The admin will keep his commission and pay the rest to the seller. If you use the built in payment system, you can set a minimum amount and time for withdrawal. So you can have an escrow feature.

    Cash on delivery happens offline. So it depends on your business plan. If the delivery is done from the admin end, things are as simple as normal delivery or checkout method.
