Likelihood to Recommend

2Checkout

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.

Cratejoy

Perfect for people starting an online subscription box business. Gives good suggestions and guidance. Helps figure out pricing and other ways to make your business successful.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Customizable
  • Contains all basic reports and marketing tools
  • Markets your boxes in their marketplace
  • Sets up shipping so it's easier and cheaper
  • Helps get your online subscription boxes started

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.
  • Customer service takes awhile

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.
Cratejoy streamlines the process so there's less to figure out on your own.

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.
  • The monthly fees and transactions fees are quite high
  • Their marketplace has brought in a lot of customers
