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

  • 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.

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.

  • 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

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
