     In a way you've answered your own question.  Why not start out by
offering "space" in your store for a monthly fee plus a commission on sales
(perhaps lower than the 12% offered).  Think about structuring your monthly
fee in such a way that the first  $500 in commissions goes back to the
vendor, then anything beyond that is paid in commission to you.  As your
audience grows, you'll be able to determine -- and then price -- what your
fees for advertising  would be, but in the meantime you'll be extracting
value from the work you've done and build a win-win relationship with your
vendors.  Good luck.   Let me know how it works out.
