The ease of integration using Checkout.com with
was a main deal breaker for us. It took us less than 1 business day to setup. Our CSM took over almost immediately when setup was completed and provided some potential plans on how we can improve approval ratings. At the same time, Checkout.com constantly introduces new features which is something I've rarely seen from my previous payment processors. Personally, I feel that Checkout.com should be used in any scenario where E-commerce is involved.

2Checkout Monetization Platform is well suited for emerging SaaS businesses because along with payment processing, they offer you exposure to Affiliates and make electronic code delivery easy. The dashboard is cumbersome and reporting graphs/options are not easy to comprehend so it might become trouble when the business grows and you want to show it to venture capitalists or any investor/buyer.

Read full review Cons It would be great to add a dashboard for tracking the scheme monitoring program. Dispute Dashboard - to see how many cases were won/lost. how many cases were won in a month and losses from chargebacks. Add the ability to test ML solutions from Checkout.com and custom rules (for example, 10% of the traffic to give ML to compare what is better).

We have a long term contract and we already have them in our plans for the next 5 years.
Read full review Usability
It is surreal. Everything feels like they don't really want you to use them. I had to beg them to approve my account because of stupid approval questions. Example: give ONE url where payments will come from. (my payments will come from a page inside my webapp which means absolutely nothing to users who don't have a user in my webapp. I also have many URLs where the users can pay from) Then their API is super complicated to use. I couldn't believe how complicated it is. It is not well explained in the documentation and you have to guess until you understand the underlying logic. I wouldn't use it if I Stripe was available in my country.

In the last 3 years that I have been working with Checkout.com, they had an unplanned outage that lasted less than a few minutes. Their uptime is amazing. If they have maintenance, unlike banks, they don't have downtime during this time. We frequently require their support and Checkout.com responds to us within minutes. When we have important rollouts, I schedule calls with our merchant support manager to monitor the rollout/perform tests, etc. It is always easy to find time lost even with short notice.

Checkout.com performance as an acquirer and a PSP is excellent. We have too many transactions per day, therefore reports take some time to generate before they are available for downloading. But it indeed takes reasonable time. We use native/h2h integration therefore, there is no redirection issue, all pages load quickly on our side. Based on my experience, Checkout.com will never never integrate with software or systems that will slow them down. Amongst all payment methods they offer, all are processed immediately, without delays.

Support has been excellent. They've been very communicative and informative about plans. And we can see how we can utilise them more going forward for expansion and set a target of alternative markets, which should overall increase our sales. On the regulatory side, we get updated details about changes to regulations.

We are not using only checkout.com; however, while choosing the 2nd provider, we made a choice for Checkout.com because: a. all needed basic features available, b. good pricing, c. developing company, d. teams who ask what the merchant wants and, after that - implement what the merchant wants (that's the most important).

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.

Our tech team implemented payments API to process payments online. Analytics team receives transaction repots that we use to build our own performance dashboards and help to reconcile transactions. API is indeed flexible - we don't use all features but if required we can easily implement them. When Checkout.com adds new features or functionalities, some of them can be used even on an older API version which saved us tech resources and implementation time. We use the same API to expand into new markets - technically we don't need to change anything when we want to launch payments in a new country.
