    yes, many people do that, I know a programmer who uses 2checkout, he says its better than Paypal. Another good thing is the buyer can pay via paypal and you get paid via 2checkout, win/win for both.

    PHP Scripting ;)
    I have used 2checkout extensively few years back. I had my paypal limited because of the cash flow and needed some documents. Switched to 2checkout, and coded the existing script to adapt to 2checkout and had a solid pay cheque at home every month.

    Pros:
    Its pretty nice, and can receive payments from paypal, cards etc.
    Amazing API services, and easy to use.

    Cons:
    Kind of high transaction fees.
    I think they pay net30. For me it was Net 30.

    2checkout is a great way to avoid all the hassles involved in using PayPal as a payment method and still get all the benefits of using it. You can receive your payment weekly or bi-weekly.

    Yes. I love 2checkout and I prefer it to paypal. There are some countries restricted by paypal but 2Checkout accepts all. So go with paypal.

    2checkout is just awesome.
    You can opt for weekly payout and set the minimum threshold at $50.Every Wednesday the amount gets withdraw to your bank account provided you reach the min threshold.
    Only issue is they have a high fees as compared to paypal.

    if you not from US prepare gave away 50% of sells to them
    if you are from US you would pay only 10% more in fees if you choose 2checkout over paypal

    also if you switching from paypal interface to 2checkout interface prepare your self for bunch of confusing such as balance after each sell only updates after 48h which is I founded epicly nooby for such project

    another thing on avarage 30-40% of buyers payments would be hold for 12-24h means not you nor them will see this money during a holds which can make a lot frustration if is something urgent

    also if you have like 20 online stores and need to put all output into 1 bucket forget about that with 2checkout you need to create new account for each website go tru whole process of verification again a lot requirements also must be in place on your website include of exposing personal details to public on each site

    Also for every charge back they charge you 20-25$ + full amount of payment that's been charge backed unlike with paypal they just take a payment with small hidden fees for chargebacks/dispute activity's

    another minus you can't send $ to other 2checkout users they only can be cashout

    all I can say a lot pain and torcher will wait for you 2cc hope they will do better then that in 2016
