    I wrote to support several times, but no response from you guys, so I am here.
    I am very interested in Dokan plugin, but I may need some modifications according to my needs. I want to create a marketplace similar to Ebay: when buyers buys an item, money goes directly to seller.

    So this could be done in this way:
    1. Seller registers, adds some items for sale;
    2. Buyer buys an item he wants;
    3. Buyer is given SELLER'S payment information (bank transfer or local pickup) and pays directly to seller full amount;
    4. When seller gets money in his bank account, he marks order as payed or something;
    5. All payment / order change and other emails are sent to seller and buyer only, not to admin.

    So in this case ALL THE MONEY would go directly to seller. So we would need to remove Withdraw money from seller's menu, because there would be no credits and no payments from admin to sellers.
    How could site admin earn from this? Because sellers get 100% of their sold items, admin could earn from advertisement on his website.

    I hope you understand my vision, now I need some expert words how to make it real. Would it be included in future releases or I may need unique modification of this plugin?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hello Kestis,
    Sorry for replying late as we were in vacation.

    Lets say a customer buys 10 different product from 10 different seller. If you use parallel payment from PayPal adaptive, then it is okay. But if you want your customers to pay via bank, they will have to pay to 10 different account which will be annoying. So in that case, the account details of the Admin will be displayed to the customer and he will make the payment to the admins account and sellers can see the sales they made. Then admin will have to pay manually.

    So if you are planning to use only bank payments then it is going to be a big issue for your business. We do not have any feature to show the bank details of each seller on checkout page. But you can achieve this feature by hiring a developer.

    Let me know if you need more clarification or any other information.

    Thank you.
