Question regarding split funding and customized payment flow
My name is Bryce and I'm trying to start a new company but I've had a lot of difficulty figuring out payment integration, I've talked with multiple different credit-card charging companies and payment integration companies but I haven't been able to find a solution.
My company is very simple. We connect small businesses to virtual freelancers. Through our website, companies can manage, pay and interact with their freelancers. These freelancers record their hours worked/timesheets into our website, that is housed in a database.
We're looking for a payment system that can understand which freelancers and companies are connected. We would then like to have a program that can connect with the the hours worked/timesheets database and automatically charge the companies credit card the according amount of hours * hourly wages. We then would like to ensure that once the money is paid, 90% is provided to the independent contractor and 10% is provided to us.
Does anybody have any advice, as to how I would go about this? Could I work with PayPal and then have a developer build this program? It would be ideal if there was already a turn-key solution out there but I can't find anything that exists like this. In addition to this, our developer is under contract work, which means we would like to have as much of this expedited as possible.
