Subject: RE: spec schema sample for POC + issues

Hi Nita,
What it's called usually depends to a large part on how the business model
actually works; economic committments & economic events & physical
deliveries. (REA like stuff)

From the picture itself, it really looks like a **NetMarket business model
with payment settlement services** rather than a "drop ship"/"customer
direct" business model (for example in a retail environment with the
physical exchange of goods ).

From the picture, it need to be more clear what parties are actually engaged
in the true business transaction.
On the surface it looks like the Supplier is engaging in the business
relationship with the Customer, and the NetMarket is acting as a
facilitator/broker ? (for example if you want to sell me a book and I write
you a check, the deal is still between you and I where we don't acknowledge
that the Bank whose check I used is either the seller or the buyer OR
another way to put it, the NetMarket never assumes legal ownership/nor
liabilities ever for the product/service between the Seller and the Buyer).
Also another way to test this out would be to look at the use case for
customer returns and refunds in relation to the flow of goods or services
and title of ownership.

I'm just guessing the NetMarket will charge a commission to both the buyer
and the seller for 'discovery' on the NetMarket ?

Do you have more specific details as to what the business scenario embodies,
so it can actually be modeled. 
(ie. let's test the BP requirements gathering stuff we've been talking about
all these months !!!) 

From the BOM/business requirments, we can frame the business context to
better explain the operating business model for the spectators outside the
By itself, this way, it looks to be more of a series of business
documents/transactions (simply) chained together.
