Hi @COdyJMathis. Thanks for the feedback and suggestion. This is something that you would be able to do if you were to build a custom site and user our Reseller API. However, including something like this in a reseller package that is more "turn-key" would probably be beneficial. We'll make sure to pass on your feedback. Thanks!
The API reseller plan is completely separate from the Storefront reseller plans. This is more confusing as there's now a Storefront API too (what the WordPress plug-in was built upon).
The API reseller plan is basically to add domain registration to an existing site. Where you would be responsible for billing and support. So for example if you were already offering your own hosting, the API allows you to integrate domain registration and management into your own user control panel.
There's concern with the Storefront plans adding billing for products they don't support. I'm not sure the best way this could be handled.
In concept, GoDaddy would simply add the option to define custom products which would also carry over in to the WordPress plugin from our account with a custom price - these items would appear under the "Other" products on the customers account and billing for any custom products would follow a different path with regards to commission, etc.
I don't know the inner workings or how the GoDaddy back end functions however I can't see this being a huge task but would certainty provide monumental levels of value to the end user. Myself for example, I wouldn't want to completely go to the API plan because I would loose support for my customers which is the #1 reason for going with GoDaddy reseller over my own servers.
Something that can be considered for the future I would hope.
I get what you're saying. PayPal is set-up for 3rd party transactions, GoDaddy is not. There would be legal issues and decisions on business practices that need to be worked out first. Though still possible, it's just not as simple as adding the functionality to the shopping cart.
