The Amazon Simple Pay Marketplace service is used to facilitate payments for others. Use it to charge a commission fee for brokering the exchange between buyers and sellers.

Note that sellers must accept your marketplace fee policy before the payment buttons for their products can be generated. This can be accomplished using the MarketplacePolicy service with the form helper (see examples).
