    How 2co works? Can customers pay through 2co payment link and then get my money to credit card? I'm finding their website a little tricky to find info lol. I don't want to have deal with PayPal again.

    What's your experience with 2checkout?

    Thank you

    So you're selling products, and needs a service to collect payments from customers? Well, I'm not sure about 2checkout, they should probably work....then you have Moneybookers, Alertpay, Plimus, Google Checkout....and probably more. :)

    2CO is an alternative off course

    Just like Authorize, Alertpay, MooneyBookers, Google Check out etc.

    Its depends on you which you think is the best for your needs

    I have seen people replacing paypal by alertpay, Authorize, Plimus

    Yeah, I worked with 2co, good experience
    Customers pays with credit card or paypal, and every week they send me the payment to my payoneer debit card
    Cons: To much work to clients to fill the forms and I don't like a little reserve held from payment (5%), they release after 90 days
    Initial fee ($50) can be avoided if you find a code from time to time in the web

    I work with them too. They're okay. Not the perfect solution but a very good one! Pay out once a week. Definitely worth it if u want to accept the majority of clients who use Gaypal. I wouldn't recommend GayPal to friend or enemy in business. For regular individuals maybe.

    By the way, 2Checkout doesn't mention your first payout must be verified so make sure u do or you'll be disappointed your first week. Their customer service is very good too.

    Thank you silentthunder. What do you mean by first payout is verified? Payout or customer? I heard that they call first few customers which ordered to make sure that everything it's legit.

    They verify the first one somehow. Not sure if its really a phone call or a close look. They didn't call my first client, I checked. :)

    Seems that I will go for 2co even if taxes and fees are high than PayPal but I think it's worth it. It's to risky with Paypal. They limit account like how adsense bans. Damn

    Thanks guys

    I am using 2CO on my service site currently it is best so far as he mentioned above just in starting is a bit difficult they do some verification in payment etc but after that it works like a smoothly payment gateway with no worries for Payment,withdraw etc if you use Payonner card. ;).

    We do 2co and think it's to many clicks and antiqued. I almost click away when buying.

    Have been looking into Stripe (as mentioned here somewhere) to consolidate all three merchants we offer to one. Think it has WP plugin too

    2co is good but has some restrictions. Like you need different account for each site and they must approve it before it becomes active. Their %5 reserve for 90 days sucks but after few weeks you keep getting paid and won't notice it.

    Wire transfer with them is expensive. Same for any payment service. 2CO does direct deposit and that works well and its free.

    I am also using 2CO but they are charging very much. The best 2checkout alternative for PayPal is
    Code:
    http://home.plimus.com/ecommerce/

    The charges of 2CO is pretty high! But, to be honest, Plimus is not a good option to go for right now! The reasons are -

    • Plimus stopped accepting Paypal payments :(
    • You get your money after a long waiting of 45 days, where 2CO pays every Thursday!

    These are aggrigators and so they can take on whatever they want. But, they can also do whatever they want as they are not really under any scrutiny from the card brands. So if they shut you down while holding funds one day that is your problem

    I have 2 year experience with 2co and I'm really like to work with them because they pay weekly to me and their support is best
