2CheckOut is a great alternative to Paypal or Clickbank. For a one time fee of $49 (plus processing feeds for each transaction) to get started it is the cheapest and easiest payment system to add to your website.
Their full-service model is a simple “pay as you go service” and includes:
* Credit Card Data Security (PCI DSS Compliant)
* Encrypted transaction processing
* World-class global fraud protection
* Recurring billing solutions
* Alternative payment products like PayPal
One of the great things about 2CO (2Checkout) is the built in affiliate program. You can offer affiliate commission and start your own affiliate program easily using 2CO.
Another great thing about 2CO is the possibility to use it for digital (non-tangible) goods. This is the big decision maker for most online non-tangible stores on the web. With Paypal’s high fraud rate with non-tangible products, 2CO seems to step it up and offer more protection for the merchant and better fraud control.
2Checkout is not for everyone, if you do a lot in sales the higher transaction fees will cost you more per month then other services that charge a monthly fee plus lower transaction fees.
Overall, 2Checkout is great for new start ups or as an extra payment method for those not looking to use it that much and don’t want the monthly fees.
