The payment flow of Magento 2 Marketplace depends on the admin of the marketplace that how he wants to receive payment from the customers. There are two ways:-
Using Default Magento 2 Payment Gateway:
If the admin is using the default Magento 2 payment gateway (Check/money order, Bank Transfer, Cash on delivery, Purchase Order, Zero Subtotal Checkout).
Then the payment made by the customer for their purchases will come directly to the admin’s bank account.
After that, the admin can manually pay the respective sellers after deducting their commission.
Once, the admin has paid to the seller, they can keep a record of the same in the back-end.
