As a website owner, can I get commission from their profit?

Q: People use my site to auction their cars and I get a percentage cut from their profit. Is this permissible, given that I do not own their cars? And I get commission from their profit?

A: Whilst you may charge a fee for the usage of your site the fee must be known.  You cannot charge an unknown/uncertain fee as in the structure mentioned in the question wherein the profit earned, if any, is not known.
