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.

Avalara

Avalara would be a good fit for a company just starting out. Avalara can help you get registered in different states and can help monitor where there might be tax liability when the new company grows. Avalara would also be a great fit for a larger company who wants to free up personnel because there are other projects that need to take priority. Also, in the growing world of taxes and the new Pandora's box, Avalara can help them with their tax liability and exposure. Avalara is always up to date on tax laws and rates, so it's easy to stay ahead of the game.

Avalara

  • Avalara's tax tables are accurate and updated timely across all the states we have a Nexus in.
  • Avalara's customer service is top notch, the treatment of customers is far better than any other service-based business I've worked with in the past.
  • Avalara integrates with many third-party platforms we use throughout our company, i.e Sage & Shopify.

Cons

2Checkout

  • Improving woocommerce plugin as a stable WordPress plugin
  • Having a modern looking email template
  • Multiple companies/sites form one single user account

  • Although Avalara integrates directly with QuickBooks Online, it bypasses the QB sales tax system and creates the sales tax as a line item on the invoice instead of a calculation after the subtotal. This was confusing to some of our customers.
  • For the WA combined excise tax return, I have to email my WA B&O tax calculations to be included in the return by the 10th of the month even though the report is not due until the end of the month. There is currently no place on the Avatax console to add these figures.

We feel the Avalara has built a really good program. We feel it works well for our company and hopefully will continue to do so in the future.

From a user perspective, AvaTax has been generally easy to use. The AvaTax Admin Console website is generally intuitive; finding the information I need is straightforward. Customer support is helpful when I have questions. The fact that AvaTax runs reliably "in the background" - we do not need to monitor it or maintain it or update it - is a plus.

We had 2 implementations, one 5 years ago and 1 about a year ago for the 2 systems we use for invoicing. I did most of the implementation myself with the assistance of Avalara. The first implementation went very smoothly even though I was unfamiliar with Avalara at the time. The 2 was a lot more complex because of the system we were integrating with, but Avalara worked with me to make it happen.

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.

I was introduced to Avalara through GPUG and a presentation at the GPUG Summit. The other GP users said that it was a good product, and they had no problems using it. After talking to the people in the Avalara booth, I decided that it would be a good solution for our company.

Return on Investment

2Checkout

  • Conversion rate has grown up since we started using Avangate Digital Commerce
  • Refund rate has descreased also

Avalara

  • We save money by not having to hire a tax expert just to get our invoices out to our customers. Along with filing our company's monthly sales taxes for all the states that we collect in.
  • We save time due to having more employees being able to do invoicing. Which leads to a faster cash flow.
