Hey Benj,

Allowing users to create and manage their own store is a very difficult proposal as it comes with a host of potential hurdles (i.e. who accepts payment for the transaction, if it is the vendor... what if the user purchases from multiple vendors at one go?).

The most plausible solution is for the store owner to accept all money and then pay the vendors on a scheduled rota, however that would also require multiple additional tools.

In short, I would love to have this as a feature, however it is very difficult to determine how and when it would be an option.

i was looking at bigcartel.com and thought about it thats all, they work by entering a paypal email and everythings done thru that money wise. Id imagined it as subscriptions thing (vb) with options to allow different things per usergroup with all money ( for items) going thru paypal and then an automated pm / email to the user saying wooo you've sold something........

A distant idea :D cheers sam
