Thank you for your submisssion to my question. I could be wrong, but this POS system seems to be for retailers making local physical transactions. Does this system have an application for web transactions?
You're correct.
To be honest you might be looking for a world of pain.

There are solutions such as Paypal Adaptive Payments

With credit cards it gets messy with processing refund requests, chargebacks etc.

Were you planning on somehow processing 2 transactions at the same time, and for your affiliates to have to have their own merchant account? Credit card companies have been cracking down on multiple transactions due to lots of fraud and unhappy customers with rebills etc.

The most typical scenario is that one entity sells the goods. The transaction is tracked using affiliate software such as Directtrack, Has Offers, Post Affiliate Pro, IdevAffiliate, Jrock etc, or using one of many affiliate networks or CPA networks.

After a period of time, typically based upon historical data with the partner based on their typical lead or transaction quality, you would make some kind of mass payment.

You might start with net 30 or net 60 payment terms to start, though many networks might go as low as biweekly or even weekly payments. Very few offer next day.

Just because something is technically possibly doesn't mean it is a good idea.
