Can anyone advise if my understanding of accounting entries are correct for sales made on e-commerce website?

1. When customer made a purchase via e-commerce website and invoice raised to them (Part of the revenue will be my commission and part of it will be payable to seller):-
Dr Receivables $100
CR Commission Revenue $20
CR Payables (To sellers) $80

The amount will be collected by the payment gateway merchant and paid to us few days later.

2. (a) Upon receiving payment from the payment gateway merchant:-
Dr Bank $100
CR Receivables $100

(b) To knock off the Payables (To sellers):-
DR Payables (To sellers) $80
CR Bank $80

Not too sure if there are addtional entries to be made. Need the experts' view on this. Thanks.

Regards,
CH

Section 2(B) is the entry once you pay the seller?

This looks correct to me unless sales tax as Cost of Sales are also involved

It's correct for me as standard explanation of accounting entries.
