    PLEASE EXPLAIN THE PAYMENT WORKFLOW SYSTEM – I DON’T GET IT
    I CAN NOT SEE HOW BUYERS AND SELLER CHECK OFF THE STAGES OF JOB COMPLETION.
    IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS NONE…. ALL I SEE IS MESSAGE SYSTEM, BUT NO CLICK BUTTONS FOR THE BUYER TO SHOW JOB COMPLETED AND PAID,

    PLEASE SEE MY ATTACHED CHART ON HOW I EXPECT IT TO WORK. AND MAYBE SOMEONE TELL ME HOW IT ACTUALLY WORKS..

    I KNOW MY WAY IS DIFFERENT USING A DEPOSIT UP FRONT, AND NOT THE WHOLE JOB AMOUNT… BUT SHOW ME HOW THE STANDARD SYSTEM IS SUPPOSED TO WORK OUT OF THE BOX.

    OR IS THERE NO PAYMENT WORK FLOW SYSTEM IN PLACE AND IT NEEDS TO BE BUILT AND NOT INCLUDED.

    THANK yOU

    Hello Randy,
    Here is how it works:
    1.Seller/service provider post services they offer.
    2.Buyer select the seller they want then make payment which is sent to admin paypal.
    3.Seller receives message of new order.Seller proceeds with the work and communicate with buyer via overflow.Once seller completes job they mark it as complete.
    4.Buyer receives fund release request.If job is complete then they can release the funds.If the job is not complete communication continues via overflow till completion.
    5.Admin receives job completion and fund release request and proceeds to release funds with commission deducted.
    There is no option for users/buyer to post a service they want done

    Hello Josh,

    I pretty much understood everything above but how do I know in my paypal account that who paid for which service from which provider/seller? and in demo I can’t find payment details of seller which I will be making payment to?

    Hello

    Just want to echo Kashif’s questions as mine are similar. I created buyer/seller accounts have made a few live transactions on my microjobs site – here’s what I’ve noticed:

    a) As Admin, I don’t receive job completion notifications via email or anywhere else.
    b) As Admin it seems upon monies are being sent to me, but how does buyer initiate fund release request? I’m currently logged in as a buyer, the job is completed but I don’t see this option.
    c)As Admin, is the Theme Settings the only place where I set my commision?

    If this is explained in detail somewhere else, feel free to redirect me

    Thanks folks

    @Tem

    a) in order to receive notifications via email, you need to setup email under >Theme Settings> Emale Setup.

    b) Theme Settings>User Setup> in >User Credit; display >Withdraw Box.

    c) yes, see some where under theme settings to find the commission settings, i seen it but can’t remember.

    hope “a” and “b” is answered correctly not sure about the “c”

    good luck

    Hello Tem,
    Just to add to what Kashif mentioned above.
    b).After seller completes the job they mark it as complete and a button to request fund release will appear.If buyer is satisfied with the work then they can proceed to release the funds by pressing the ‘Release Funds’ button.
    c).Set commission under Theme Setup >General Setup >Micro Job Settings

    I am trying to understand the checkout or payment process a bit more clearly.

    1. When Customer makes a payment to buy the listing (example: $100)’
    1. Where is that $100 sent if performing through Standard Paypal?

    2. Listing Poster receives a notification to complete the order.
    1. When using the Admin payment – the Poster looked like they owed (-$15) for the 15% fee that I have created for all commissions.

    3. Listing Poster Completes Job

    4. Customer Releases Funds

    5. Who is sending the Remaining $85 to the Listing Poster who completed the job?
    1. Is that done automatically through Paypal?
    2. Is it applied to his/her account on the site and they need to request a withdrawal?
    3. Do I need to use Adaptive payments, is the $85 held at PayPal until release?

    please help clarify this process if possible, I am getting ready to launch to my customers, but this is the most important part of the site.

    Thanks
    Brian
