Hi Chris,

There are a few options, which are non-escrow.

But I think an escrow type setup is really the good option for auto payments and ensure trust by the clients etc. I am not sure who you looked at, but an Australian company does this for marketplaces.

THE OTHER option is less known and that is PayPal Marketplace (Managed Path) and harder to get as it limited at the moment.

This gives control of payments “once”a condition is met IE work complete.

THE QUICKER option is PayPal Adaptive API (Delayed Chained Payments). Where you are the 1st receiver of your % and delay payment to the 2nd receiver until conditions are met IE goods delivered or service provided.

That’s all I can think of at the moment
