I have about 5 domains, for example one main one: www.sports.tld, and 4 other minor ones: www.hockey.tld, www.soccer.tld, www.rugby.tld, www.baseball.tld (just an example)

www.sports.tld will essentially contain some if not all products for each of the other categories. Each of the remaing sites will showcase relevant products.

Currently I am successfully able to use subsites module to achieve this with the e-commerce module. However there are two key problems I'd like some feedback on:

1.) How can I force all of the final checkout/payment to a single domain (https://www.sports.tld). This will help because I won't need to purchase and manage 5 ssl certificates.

2.) Is it possible to share the products between the websites? This way, If I have for example, a product 'Water bottle', and I need to update the picture and price - I won't need to update the image in 5 different places.

Any advice appreciated!
