I am launching an auction site. It will allow users to buy/ sell items, similar to eBay.
I am a complete ecommerce noob, so I am wondering if there is a better way to handle the payments.
Currently all payments will be through PayPal. Buyer pays me, I withhold commission and tax, then send the rest to the seller.
All of this will be manual. I’ll need to pass on shipping information to the seller as well.
I guess ideally, all of this would be automated. The site would require a tracking number to be inserted before payment would be released. Is this possible from any off the shelf products?
I’ll take any recommendations/ process improvements you can give!
