We have a great experience with 2checkout. The support is also excellent.

Cons

However, people also get blocked by PayPal without any warning and they can freeze and hold the money from that account that makes annoying things to the user.

Also, I do worry about storing my bank account information for a service like PayPal. They might be insured against fraud, but I still worry sometimes that my account information will be stolen.

JL

Joseph L.

This becomes a problem when you need money quickly. IPN and PayPal API are unstable, often messing up transactions, especially if they involve limited items and need verification as soon as possible.

ES

Eka S.

Cons

Avangate merged with the horrible company 2Checkout (worst I've experienced in this sector!) earlier this year and plans to operate under the name of 2Checkout in the future.

PS

Philipp S.

Their fraud protection could use improvement. The platform is not very intuitive at all.

SH

Steve H.

In some contries you get a bank loan more easily. The worst part it that if you are not approved, you will not know why.

Clients like to pay with PayPal

Reviewed 3 years ago

I used to have both PayPal and 2checkout in our website as the payment methods. After sometime I realized people are more likely to choose to pay with PayPal if they have the option. About 80% of payments are made with PayPal on our website. I guess it is because PayPal is a well known brand and people trust it.

Pros

As an eCommerce website owner; - Clients prefer and trust PayPal instead other payment methods (very popular) - Almost all popular shopping carts have PayPal payments integrated. You do not need third party plugins to accept PayPal payments on your website. - Fees are lower - Easy to integrate on website

Cons

- Sometimes they limit the account without giving a clear reason - Customer support is hard to find. You have to call multiple times in order to get resolve an issue.

2Checkout

It helps me to run my Digital Product business effectively

Reviewed 3 months ago

For me, it's a really easy experience with my WordPress EDD store. Everything runs smoothly with Reporting, timely payment, fraud detection etc...

Pros

Previously we are using Paypal for our Digital Store. But we face lots of issues like the end customers not using Paypal, Countries boundaries, failed orders, etc...So 2checkout comes in this alternative and gives us 100% satisfaction at that moment.

Cons

The Admin Panel interface needs some work for User Experience, they have the bulk of options and sometimes you feel hard to find such options. The Fraud detection is great but they charge too much amount if any chargeback is received. Till now I am not able to calculate how their chargebacks are counted.

Vendor response

Comprehensive payment processing service

Reviewed 8 months ago

One of the projects I work with has it as payment processing service.

Pros

2Checkout allows you accepting payments and issuing invoices for your products via product payment link right via dashboard. So if you e-store is under construction you can keep on receiving payments.

Cons

The service had major issue mith Mastercard lately. As far as I know they were forced to PayPal gateway.

Vendor response

Hello! Thank you a lot for your review, we are grateful you took the time to give us feedback. We are also happy you are enjoying our platform and services, particularly the payment processing capability. Regarding your concern, we have been actively working to reactivate payment processing for Mastercard and grow the number of payment methods you can offer to your clients. Therefore, we added the processing of credit card payments via PayPal to offer your customers a seamless payment experience and the option to pay via Visa/Mastercard and via American Express and Diners. Thank you for your understanding!

My Experience using 2Checkout so far

Reviewed a year ago

I have used other platforms such as Stripe, PayPal and Square which seem to be MUCH easier to use and they pay the next business day or the following business day.

Pros

They have a very robust API and their platform is pretty comprehensive with a LOT of features.

Cons

The platform is very complicated and not easy to understand or use. Also the delay in payments is about 2 weeks. Their fraud protection could use improvement. The platform is not very intuitive at all.

You gotta fight if you want to work with them

Reviewed 4 years ago

I'd say my experience is more bitter than sweet. If it wasn't for the savings I am making, I would never choose them over Paypal, who care far better about their customers.

Pros

In some contries across the ocean 2checkout is the more budget friendly alternative. I like their inlice checkout function which basically allows the customer to see a simple popup with " Enter your card details", instead of going through long and complicated sign in process. Oh, and there is of course the fuction to pay with Paypal, which some customers prrfer. I feel that this really gives sales a huge boost.

Cons

It takes months to be approved and become a partner of 2checkout. In some contries you get a bank loan more easily! The worst part it that if you are not approved, you will not know why. They will never tell you!They rejected my website twice without informing me the reasons behind their decision. When I reached out SEVERAL TIMES to ask what the problem was, their support was kind enough to reply after...

Great payment gateway solution for every everyone

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

First of all 2Checkout support team are awesome for their support. Their payment gateway solution is more awesome. It's fully hassle-free. My billing team likes 2Checkout for hassle-free. Now my company can take payments with PayPal and credit cards from my clients directly on my website without any hassle. Also, they have a perfect dashboard for use. I'm very satisfied using 2Checkout. I hope they keep up the good things and word.

Cons

I liked their Instant Notification System (INS) and Instant Payment Notification (IPN) most. The more awesome thing is clients can easily manage their order, subscription, invoice, and payment details from https://www.2co.com/.

Easy to use & Quick support

Reviewed 3 months ago

Really easy to setup, it works perfectly with shopify, where our store was located. It also accepts payments form paypal but we decided to use 2Checkout only for credit and debit card. Also we fell in love with the fact that the amount of currencies that they manage was huge compared to other platforms, the withdrawal of the money to our accounts was really smooth most of the time.

Pros

This platform is available in many countries where shopify or Etsy payments aren't available, it manages a lot of different currencies and is very easy to make many processes automatic.

Cons

It's more a dislike from our own customers than from the platform, the fraud avoidance works really well but sometimes the clients got away with an invalid claim.

Vendor response

Hi there! We're super grateful for the time you took to leave us feedback. It's a pleasure to see that you enjoy the easy setup, the array of available currencies, and the overall platform capabilities. We'll do our best to continue supporting your online business with a smooth experience. Regarding your concerns about fraud, we'd love to look further into them and assist you.
