As I explained above, it would mean people input payment system configuration and it would be visible to admin.
For me that's not acceptable.
Let's say the admin gets someone's Stripe API secret key. What's the worst thing they can do?

So I am not sure this is gonna happen.
Maybe I should rather create a RM Shop add-on providing that use case.
I know there has to be a way to do it because I have know themehouse has added some settings to the Stripe payment provider in donate addon. But it’s looks like the settings has been removed due to some reason

So yeah guess I could add it but in that case no percentage on sale management.
I would either let the admin deal with it, or manage selling capability as a paid subscription.

As I see it, the worst thing they can do would use the API key to create fake charges or get free refunds. This would be illegal under US law (and I assume most country's laws) and it would also be stupid, the admin already has free access to whatever digital product the user is selling.

A suggestion: Since this plugin deals with monetization, it should cost much more money. At least €100

If I remove the percentage on sale, the monetization is lost.

I mean remove for the case where you use payment profiles.

Here's how I'd handle monetization:

The user accepts the full payment.

At the end of the month, the forum says "you owe 3% of your sales. Please send payment to admin@forum.com"

Could be handled through payment profile from admin indeed.
That's a fairly important amount of work though.

The seller receives money directly to himself.
The system keeps statistics, and at the end of the month the seller must transfer the percentage.

Any update for this feature?
That is under work.
I have implemented the second mode based on xF payment profiles with capability to use the admin set one if selling with only one account or user to input.

Still have to implement it for the renew as well as the resource featuring.
