    I'm thinking of using the fiverr script to create a similar site but has anyone actually used this and does it work
    Ok or is it buggy?

    What I most wanted to know was about PayPal. If there is loads of
    Money coming in an out of your PayPal account from your users how on earth can you track how much is actually yours? With people withdrawing at random times and various commission structures etc I can't work out how you can possibly know what cash in your PayPal account is yours and what belongs to your users. Anyone know? Also is this likely to get your PayPal account limited? I'm always paranoid about PayPal after having problems in the past, I can see their filters being triggered with hundreds of payments and transactions all of a sudden?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I bought the script and installed it on a site, never bothered promoting it so im unsure about the paypal aspect. But the backend is very simple and straight forward, didn't see any bugs when i was testing it out.

    Not sure how paypal would biew a lot of incoming and outgoing transactions.... Other clone sites seem to be ok!

    Thanks jaso009. How comes you never got round to promotion? Just sidetracked or looked a bit f a crowded market?

    Still really interested to hear from anyone who knows the deal with knowing how much money you actually have in PayPal thy is YOURS. in theory the script could easily track your cut and what is sitting in people's accounts, but does that function
    Actually exist?

    Just got the script. Installed and working fine. I used Arvixe hosting as they say it works fine over there which is true. The problem is, there's no tutorial ! Another big issue is Paypal ! Looks like they don't approve such sites. Which makes it useless in a way unless they add more intergrated payment gateways. So for now i'm still thinking on what i'll do with it.
