Help web project with BP

    Hi,

    I have the project to build an e-shop website that is also social. This is why I am considering buddypress for it.
    However I don’t want to start everything before I know if what I want can be achieved with BP.
    My project is very similar to Etsy website.

    Users can create a profile where they can:
    - upload images and videos (I know can be done with buddypress)
    - upload products they want to sell (possible)
    - for each product sold, there is a commission that is taken (let’s say 5% of the total price).

    My first question is:
    Is it possible to set up the site in such a way that a commission is taken?
    If yes, how?

    My second question is:
    Is it possible to install a membership scheme on the site. Such as “pay £5/month to access these services here” and then charge the member each month until the membership is cancelled.
    I am thinking this could be linked to paypal merchant account however I wonder if this is possible with Buddypress. Perhaps there is a plugin for it??

    I hope someone can help me on this! :)

    anything is possible if you have the skill to code. There is no off the shelf solution

    Is one of my question possible?

    I have some skill to code but I would prefer to use a ready solution or at least for a part of the site if possible.

    there many ecommerce plugins for WordPress but none are 100% integrated into BuddyPress to allow a user to run a shop inside the BuddyPress install. Other option is to run WP multi-site and allow users to have their own site with their own individual store
