DO NOT make the mistake of signing up with 2checkout, unless you want to suffer like me! I consider myself a typical internet marketer selling my own digital creations such as ebooks, templates, etc. I have been in business with this company as a vendor for the past 5 years. All of a sudden they make my account inactive and I lose my sales. This they did without any prior warning at all. I discovered this on my own when I found all my order links showing a 'parameter error'! When I... (read more)

Our experience with 2checkout, is that we are an Internet marketing consulting company who contacted them about credit card processing services. The 2checkout Agent pitched their service as unique, and 100% secure, in that the seller logs into the 2checkout Interface and emails the client an Invoice for payment. The client accepts the Invoice and responds through the link contained in it to make payment. This was described as “100% secure”; eliminating the need to collect card... (read more)

No answer from the support. Stay away ... very suspicious way to calculate the fees. This is after almost 3 years in working with them and more then $120,000 in sales. (read more)

I joined checkout as a seller for my small business to offer card processing online for customers that did not like our other gateways. Last year I had 50+ transactions and 1 customer reversed their credit card on me. Today I have been "removed from 2checout service" because of too many reversals and fraud attempts. STAY AWAY SELLERS!! their support is horrible, communication is poor and they certainly are not international. (read more)

Been using 2Checkout for 8 years now, selling downloadable software, hardware and charging our resellers via invoice. Sales so far exceeding $100K. A couple of very minor hiccups along the way but everytime this was solved quickly by talking to their support.

Our company sells (legitimate) sporting goods from Thailand. We had our PayPal account frozen for 2 weeks (for no valid reason), this pushed us to look for an different payment processing. After applying for ALOT of merchant accounts we decided on 2Checkout. The fees are a bit higher than Paypal, but this is counterbalanced by the better exchange rate on money withdrawals.

I would not recommend 2Checkout payment processing services to anyone who wants to sell online. Their anti-fraud security system is atrociously weak and the online credit card fraudsters know this.
