New Platform Idea - Thoughts and Questions Welcome

Hi All! Lovely to see such an amazing community here!

I was wondering if it would be possible to hear people's thoughts on a new platform - we are essentially aiming to use a hyper-local approach to give small businesses an easy online presence on our platform, where they post deals and packages to save their customers money and gain new customers in their community. 

We are wondering about :

- The level of time commitment a business would be willing to give to a platform (in terms signing up & updating their offerings);

- What level of discount a business may be willing to give, considering there will be a small fee of 3-5% per transaction;

- What kind of fee the businesses may be willing to 'pay' (there would not be a sign up fee);

- How a small business may feel about us having an integrated delivery option.

Any guidance/comments/criticisms would be very greatly appreciated!
