Re: Payments

How can I direct customer payments straight to the artist in a dropshipping model?

5 0 1



I set up a shopify art gallery. We are drop shipping the artworks from the artist directly to the customer. Currently we have 12 artists. The money the customer pays goes automatically into my bank account and then the artist invoices me for their commission. Is there a way for the money from the customer to go to the artist directly and then i invoice them for the commission? I am asking because my business is in France and I have to pay tax on my turnover, not my commission which means I loose a lot of money on each order. 


Thank you,

We do have affiliate marketing apps available, though they typically work in the other direction. I suggest reaching out to some of those app teams to see if they can help. I recommend:
