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.

iATS Payments

If you just need a basic payment processor, then iATS will work fine. If you are looking for more advanced integrations or automated functions then you may want to keep looking. We've utilized iATS for over 2 years and are currently in the process of switching to Classy/WePay due to the extra features they offer.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Customizable
  • Contains all basic reports and marketing tools
  • Excellent customer service
  • Can process ACH transactions as recurring donations
  • Integrates with Salesforce
  • Records name of credit card holder in iATS reports
  • Can process recurring donations on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis

Cons

  • Local payments methods are an area for improvement. Not all are connected so far.
  • Bulk updates for catalogs are missing at the moment, to be added in upcoming releases I hope.
  • Website form integration into Salesforce needs improvement. You can create custom questions on your website, but there is no way to have the data import into certain fields, it only syncs to the database in the iATS fields, which makes reporting very difficult.
  • It's very tedious to set up a recurring donation, in fact, every time I do it I have to have their support team walk me through and ensure it's set up correctly.
  • No option for donors to elect to cover the transaction fees.
  • Automatic email notifications from online transactions are limited.
  • Sometimes (but not always) there is a one day delay in the transactions syncing to the database.

Alternatives Considered

Avangate Digital Commerce is more flexible, can be adjusted for your business needs.
Authorize.Net does not currently integrate with Salesforce which was a critical function that we needed, so we switched to iATS a little over 2 years ago once we implemented our Salesforce database. We are currently in the process of switching to Classy/WePay for the added features and better field mapping capabilities.

Return on Investment

  • Conversion rate has grown up since we started using Avangate Digital Commerce
  • Refund rate has descreased also
  • Recurring donors have doubled by being able to automate the monthly transaction process.
  • Reporting based on information donors have filled out in online forms has been lacking due to the way the data syncs into the database. This has made donor targeting and segmentation difficult.
