Build digital marketplaces

Creating a marketplace where users can sell their digital files is easy. Configure files as a one-time purchase, or with ongoing renewal fees to retain access. Optionally take a commission and transaction fee on each purchase, and when a user has reached a predefined value of sales, pay them with one click in the Admin Control Panel.
