Payment Solution Nightmare


I have a small problem - trying to figure out a way of doing the following:

  • Accept payments without redirecting
  • Take staged payments (it's a subscription service)
  • When the payment is pulled on a periodic basis, take a cut and redistribute to sellers

I know, individually, these are easy to implement using PayPal, but all together?

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • so you are trying to setup recurring subscription service? – User60812 5 years ago
  • Can you clarify your question with some punctuation and elaborate a bit more? You're trying to take a payment from one person, take a cut of that payment yourself, and then distribute the remainder to multiple people? Are these multiple people always the same, or usually different? You want the payment processor to handle the payment acceptance, split, and distribution automatically? Is your cut always the same? – Jay Neely 5 years ago
  • @JayNeely I am finding it difficult to see how punctuation has anything to do with this, please explain. Feel free to quote from my original question as an example. – Josh 5 years ago

Not sure if you're a developer .. or have development resources ..

You need either:

  • Stripe (
  • Recurly (

Either of those systems will allow you to pay commissions on each successfully collected payment.

Then, you'll need a developer who is familiar with the system you choose + jQuery & AJAX to implement the non-redirect solutions you speak of.

If you don't have one, try odesk ( or elance ( to find one.

Hope this helps :)

Stripe Connect is your answer. I'm doing the exact same thing. With Stripe you can accept credits card directly on your site. Create various plans (charge $8 every month). Subscribe people to those plans, and take a percentage or dollar amount for each subscription.

It's an amazing service, with a reasonable 2.9% + $0.30 per charge fee.
