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.

PayPal Payments

Paypal Payments is superb for sites with a single product, a few products, or a donation. It also works well for e-commerce shopping carts where you have a small to medium amount of items. Paypal Payments usually handles the one-time payment of the shopping cart, then directs you back to the merchant's site. This also puts the burden of a secure transaction SSL on Paypal, rather than your own website. If a commerce site is much bigger, or requires many items and/or selections, it may be more advantageous to look at some other options that would handle the payments "on site." This set up would require a site to be tightly secured, as credit card info would be transmitted on the merchant site.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Customizable
  • Contains all basic reports and marketing tools
  • Helps you create invoices, and sends them out.
  • Doesn't require that my clients have a PayPal account to pay the invoice.
  • Low processing fee for accepting payment via credit card.
  • Free funds transfer from PayPal to my bank account.

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.
  • Tracking multiple invoices across customers
  • Customer databases
  • Reminders on late invoices
  • Automatically billing customers who are regular users of a service

It's just a normal support like any other support you could expect. I don't usually need help because I am pretty tech savvy and I do enough research when I have a problem that I can usually troubleshoot for myself.

Alternatives Considered

Avangate Digital Commerce is more flexible, can be adjusted for your business needs.
I've not used any other in many years as I have had issues with all of the other payment methods. PayPal is my number one go-to and has been for years. Your drop down menu will not allow me to choose "none" or "NA".

Return on Investment

  • Conversion rate has grown up since we started using Avangate Digital Commerce
  • Refund rate has descreased also
  • PayPal Payments has had an extremely positive impact on my business. The ROI is superior!
  • PayPal Payments allows you to transfer money to your bank with ease.
