I read this interesting article:
and I realized that without the use of a tool like Stripe Connect (which Sellacious already integrates) in the European Community we cannot legally manage a marketplace when the marketplace owner wants to split payments with delay (like escrow service).
When our seller sells products, we need to pay it after a time: when we are sure that the products have been received and the time within which the customer can request the cancellation of the sale has passed.
The PSD2 law says that only a financial institution is able to manage a situation like this: Operating a payment account and enabling cash to be placed on and withdrawn from a payment account - e.g., holding funds for a merchant in a bank account before settling them pursuant to the merchant’s instructions.
We must use a service Stripe Connect or similar.
The first good news is that Sellacious has created the plugin Stripe Connect:
Now I need to understand more about this plugin and how to use it. I have 2 questions:
1) In the screenshot I see the option "Pay immediately". If I choose "No", will I able to manage the escrow the found before paying the seller?
2) If yes, have you thought about having the funds unlocked only from the Stripe control panel, or is there some connection with the order statuses on Sellacious?
