2Checkout is great when you sell software licenses online or when you offer SaaS subscriptions. I don't think it can work in other scenarios.

Apttus

Apttus CPQ excels for complex contract and/or complex pricing requirements. If your business has simple pricing rules, a less full featured solution may be more appropriate.Apttus CPQ is an easy system to administer, using the same object logic as the Salesforce platform.We implemented Apttus for virtually all of our sales representative processes, and in doing so found that we virtually eliminated speculative ordering.

Pros

  • 2Checkout handles credit cards that I would not be able to accept from my country.
  • Fraud prevention works. They saved me a couple of times and I appreciate that.
  • I always received my payments on time. I never had to complain.
  • True partner, helped us look to the future, set us up for success
  • Helps drive consistency across all reps, streamlines the approval process and eliminates customer confusion/multiple quote revisions
  • Feature complete, total solution for our needs with room to grow
  • Fast deployment
  • Great hands on support team
  • Easy customizations
  • Responded to every request with an easy yes or a great suggestion on an alternative which will save us future pains as we continue to grow

Cons

  • I get my payments via a Payoneer credit card. Sometimes I would prefer to receive a wire transfer instead but it is not so easy to switch payment methods.
  • Payment checking and purchase confirmation take about 10 minutes. It is not too much but for clients, it seems an eternity.
  • APTTUS CPQ has more than what we need but we're glad to know its there for when we need it

The business is not seeing the value and we are not ready to use the features.

We will likely switch back to native Salesforce.com and customize it to meet our needs or find a smaller vendor

Tier1/tier 2 support can only handle native functionality. Customizations have to be escalated to developers which aren’t included in the support program.

I go ahead and copy the people I directly worked with on implementation for assistance. I would rate them an 8 for support assistance.

We attended 5 hours worth of webinars early on.

We had to understand how objects worked to figure out how to structure our data.

I would have liked more in-depth training but it would have been an additional cost

Be iterative. Take the opportunity to build a catalog based on how Apttus works well. Learn the tool yourself or use an SI. Take the time to build a configuration / pricing migration tool with X-Author for Excel or roll your own. Stick with OOTB Apttus as any customization will cost you every time a new version is released

Alternatives Considered

I used to sell my software on Avangate and PayPal at the same time. Costs were very similar but I decided to abandon PayPal because it sometimes required human interventions. I also checked DigitalRiver, but it wasn't easy to setup and I never completed all requirements.
Apttus is built for enterprise where others are not.

Return on Investment

  • 2Checkout charges you for every sale. It does not have other costs that can affect your finances.
  • 2Checkout has two plans for software companies. Make sure to select the one that is right for you or you will find yourself paying a high commission.
  • Increased employee efficiency
