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.

FastSpring will be well suited for a company that needs simple checkout solution. As a bonus, you'll get a nice checkout flow. If you're a company that doesn't have the time to concentrate and becomes an expert in data security, currency conversion, global tax management, or fraud detection – this will be a great fit. It's appropriate for anyone who doesn't want to waste time on managing support for their e-commerce business.

Cons

2Checkout

FastSpring

  • One issue I have had is when a customer enters his or her email address incorrectly, and consequently does not receive the downloadable files for the book her or she ordered. It would be helpful if FastSpring revised the ordering system to require that the email address be entered twice, or somehow verified, so this issue does not arise in the future.
  • Some of the options offered by FastSpring can be tricky to set up, such as setting up a system whereby a customer can order multiple file downloads. It would be helpful if FastSpring could provide "wizards" for setting up ordering pages, rather than just having users choose from options that are not completely user-friendly.

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.

FastSpring

Our previous e-Commerce platform (which we refuse to name them to give them even the smallest amount of publicity) charged a hefty cuts of sales and a service fee on top of that. 90% of our revenue (we are a small business) went right back into paying the service fees. Additionally, customer service was horrendous. We were even insulted by a customer service representative of theirs as they made a rude remark when we criticized their service fees. They said we wouldn't have an issue if we weren't "too poor" to afford them.
FastSpring on the other hand has very low (for the services they render) fees that are taken out at POS, so nothing comes out of our pocket. And their award-winning customer service is, as expected, amazing!

Return on Investment

2Checkout

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

FastSpring

  • Well – their services are not free. Negative is that they take a commission which of course we could always look forward to lowering.
  • FastSpring's new checkout solution improved our conversion rate by 15%.
  • FastSpring provides a good view of how your business is growing in terms of revenue. You can see the refunds made this month, type of currencies performing the best, countries and more.
