Wordpress payment

Hello,

For a client we want to develop a crowdfunding platform in Wordpress. We have custom post types (being the projects) where users can make a donation for. Each project has also a bankaccount number.

I have two questions:

1: Users have to be able to make funds over to their profile in wordpress. Is there a safe wordpress plugin for this?
2: A user is able to make a donation for a project, when he choses to make a donation, the amount has to go straight to the project bank account and not to the platform. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Kind regards,

First of all, don't reinvent the wheel.  There are already full crowdfunding platforms available for WordPress:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/appthemer-crowdfunding/
http://ignitiondeck.com/id/
http://www.mandloys.com/wordpress/themes/fundler/
etc.

1: Users have to be able to make funds over to their profile in wordpress. Is there a safe wordpress plugin for this?

I'm not sure what you are asking for.  Do you want to have the users pay when logged in, or have the funds show up in the profile?

2: A user is able to make a donation for a project, when he choses to make a donation, the amount has to go straight to the project bank account and not to the platform. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Sure, but 1) This is a terrible way to do it and 2) it would probably mean all projects need to be on PayPal.  When you take a credit card on your site you are passing the information to a payment gateway.  Typically you are the one who creates the payment gateway and you attach it to your account.  If you want the money to go straight to the project you need to have the payment gateway information for each project.  The only gateway that would be easy enough to just anyone to create would be PayPal and they would have to provide you with the payment widget code so you could create a unique payment form for each project.

Thanks Jason, this is a great response!

regarding: 1: "Users have to be able to make funds over to their profile in wordpress. Is there a safe wordpress plugin for this?"

We just need a system like theme forest where you can deposit money on the site. Which plugin would you recommend to do this? thx
