What is the Payment Flow in Shopify-Multi-Vendor-Marketplace
In Shopify Multivendor Marketplace app the flow of payment goes like this :
Admin receives the payment made by the buyer and then transfers it to the seller after deducting his commission , Admin can pay the vendors/sellers by four methods in Shopify multi vendor marketplace app :
-Bank wire transfer
of which admin can pay the vendors within the app by paypal payment
gateway just by one click . It is mandatory for both Admin &
Seller to have Business Paypal Account.
Ref screenshot for much clarity :
would like to bring in to your notice that its a general practice in
big marketplaces that they never directly transfers the seller
payment on run time basis to his account immediately after the sale
just like our multivendor marketplace app ;
One of major reason behind that is : it is always an advantage in admin's hand if the seller's payment is on hold with admin as it may happen that RMA request from buyers end gets generated, in that case it becomes easier and also admin always has little control over the order till the moment payment is with admin.
In such cases , admin waits for few(02-03)days and transfers the money to seller.
And that transfer can be easily done with just one click if both the seller and admin have business paypal account.
