Split Commissions

Gaia Weylyn 4 years ago updated by Digby (Community Manager) 3 years ago 4

Regarding the commissions feature, I would like to make the suggestion of some kind of split commission payment support. I like to get artwork drawn with friends, and to make things easier for those invoved, we often like to split the payment.


While this can be done the traditional way, with paypal/square/etc, I am rather concerned about how it would be done here. With the payments done within FN, it will need to be worked into the system to make it possible.

At this point, we don't have plans to implement this. Split payments would definitely be tricky, and it would add many variables - if one person pays and the other doesn't, what happens to the commission? Because there would be transaction costs, where do those go? It also makes sense to have a single payment contact; otherwise, it could potentially be difficult to track everyone down. The easiest way for now is to have one single payment sent; if multiple people are paying, they can arrange how to pool the funds.

If it's a simple split: first one draws lines, second person colours. It'd work simply by commissioning lines then colour from other. But if it's more of a shared progress I can see how it could become difficult :o

That could work. Its really just a matter of making the payments fit into the the FN workflow.

If this winds up being implemented, I'd really prefer the option to disable it. I've never taken a commission that's meant to be shared by more than one client that hasn't gone sideways. Instead of one person being indecisive and nitpicky about how they want their character represented, you have two, and the complications are multiplied.
