We use Checkout.com payment gateway for collecting payments from customers who make hotel reservations on our website. We only use it for card payments. Recently also started using it for digital wallet payments (Apple Pay), soon will enable Google Pay too. However, would like to also offer APMs and instalment payments to our customers.
  • 3Ds document is clear and mentions about liability shift
  • Payouts are daily
  • reports are easily accessible with reports API
  • more APMs without the requirement for the merchant to have a company in the local market
  • instalment payment options with free instalment to customers in various regions
  • showing balance figures in dashboard
Liability shift is an important issue for our business and Checkout.com has a clear guideline for this in its 3ds documentation publicly available. The payouts are daily. Transaction fees are present in the dashboard under a transaction. Easy to configure fraud rules settings are available. Not ideal for APMs, not ideal if you want to have a direct integration with Xero or to see balance figure from the dashboard.

Checkout.com is my payment gateway overall and acquirer in UAE and SG.
We sell only online.
We use Checkout.com for online sales of Hotels and Flights and for offline bookings via phone using pay per link. We are actively using the dashboard for reporting, analytics and using as well the dispute management module.
  • Reliability of the platform
  • Account management: bi-weekly calls and follow up by email or Slack, good understanding of our needs and high engagement
  • Technical account manager: as above, high engagement with us and sharing Checkout.com technical roadmap
  • Performance: with the recent enhancement in intelligent acceptance,
  • Mix of own and third party acquiring: this is much appreciated for a merchant like us to be able to process locally via third party acquiring when Checkout.com does not have its own
  • Commercials: some competitors provide better fees, especially for cross border transactions
  • Support team: the speed to get an answer can be improved
  • We would like more options when it comes to settlement currencies
If one is looking for a reliable and performing payment gateway I definitely recommend Checkout.com. Especially if the company is selling in many markets and wants to have a mix of local and cross border acquiring.
If cost is the only metric (although it should not be), some alternative providers do better.

We use it for our payment needs. It helps us receive payments via cards and payment links. The integration helps us receive and manage payments without any hassle.
  • Manage payments.
  • Reports.
  • The API services are very good.
  • The documentation is really helpful.
  • The support team sometimes does not reply.
  • The new checkout platform is missing some features that the old platform used to have, like a section to see a list of all the associated cards of any customer.
It works well while accepting payments via the platform or payment links. It works with most cards. The reporting is good.

I'm using Checkout.com as a PSP who provides us with payment methods for processing (card processing mainly). Checkout.com is one of our biggest partners.
  • AR is competitive
  • Communication is smooth and well organised
  • Technical side of the product is done on a high level
  • Risk appetite when it comes to really good deals
  • Look more into long-term strategy
  • Improve AR where it is possible
If someone will ask for a good and reliable payment provider for their business needs (it can be any type of online business) - I would definitely recommend Checkout.com.
I wouldn't recommend Checkout.com to someone who works in a "grey area".

We are using it for building our payment gateway service where customers (in high volume) can pay with ease using their debit/credit card or e-wallets without the need for us to be PCI-DSS compliant. We also use the feature to pull payments reports daily for the purposes of internal reconcilliation. Probably more.
  • Documentation and ease of use/integration
  • Strong support
  • Amazing dashboards and controls through the UI
  • I think it's enough feature rich and have never had any similar issues using Checkout.com
It's a well rounded payment solutions that helped us build our payment gateway with ease.

BienManger.com uses Checkout.com as its main e-commerce payment solution for all credit card payments, mainly for France, and for payments via local solutions adapted to each European country based on consumer habits in each country. The solution is used to accept payments, manage refunds and make payment requests by email for additional payment needs related to customer service.
  • Integration of a wide range of payment methods
  • Modern customer and back-office interfaces
  • Good risk and fraud management
  • French-language interfaces
  • Faster unlocking of risky customers
  • Two-factor authentication
Checkout.com is perfect if you're thinking of replacing an ageing solution with a more modern one, and want to integrate solutions other than bankcards without difficulty.

Checkout.com is one of our primary gateways. Seamlessly integrated into our payment stack, it delivers reliable payment services across our brands for eCommerce traffic and other business initiatives.
  • They provide excellent advice from knowledgeable subject matter experts on all things payments.
  • They adapt quickly to our business-changing needs, helping us stay agile as our business grows.
  • They provide trustworthy and reliable services that enable us to take payments with as little friction as possible.
  • They are as passionate about performance as we are, working closely with us to ensure we maximize the chances of success for every transaction.
  • It would be great to see more data points available in the data analytics area of the dashboard.
  • While coverage is good, more APMs, particularly across Europe, would be great to allow us to maximise the opportunities there.
  • An advanced query tool built into the platform that allowed access to manipulate the raw data via SQL and extract it for further analysis and aggregation with other data sets.

We use Checkout.com to process payments globally, and we've been impressed by their customer focus. They always suggest new features to improve our payment acceptance and are very keen on receiving feedback.
  • Process payments.
  • Global coverage.
  • Improvement focus.
  • Payment method coverage.
  • Merchant portal UX.
It has been great working with Checkout.com. They are very focused on attending to our needs as an e-commerce platform and always listen very closely to our feedback. One point I would recommend as improvement is working on having more payment methods available.

Paysend uses Checkout to acquire Various payment methods, such as Visa, Mastercard, and Giropay. This acquisition acts as funding for remittances, which are processed via Payment. Paysend uses Checkout.com in markets without direct scheme access, such as the US. Additionally, we plan to use Payouts from our US entity to Visa and Mastercard.
  • Customer Success.
  • Value Added Service.
  • Industry Expertise.
  • More Markets Globally.
Checkout offers great service and expertise and stands above its peers in full-service offering, integration, and ongoing support. However, Checkout is not suitable in a scenario where Paysend is fully licensed and a direct acquirer of the scheme. In this scenario, Paysend can perform the full value chain in-house.

We use Checkout.com as one of our primary acquirers to accept payments from users' credit cards (Visa, Mastercard).
For us, as a crypto on-ramp and off-ramp platform, the acceptance rates, settlement period and the fees are the most crucial business parameters.
  • covers a wide list of countries with high conversion
  • makes settlements T+1
  • offers competitive pricing
  • KAM response time
Depends on the geography. Success rates varies depending on the country

Checkout is our primary payment provider for debit and credit card deposits in the EU, UK, and Australia. This gives us an alternative to SEPA deposits and one that allows us to build more attractive products on top of them (for instance, subscription services, which don't work functionally with SEPA deposits but are really easy with cards).
  • Payment Recon.
  • Refunds
  • Chargeback Handling.
  • Fraud Detection.
  • Customer Service.
  • Need to add pre-arbitrations and arbitrations to the portal directly.
  • Support for deferred debit cards.
Checkout has been fantastic as a Card Payment Provider, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and professional peers when a PSP is needed.

We use Checkout.com for credit/debit card and payout transactions, and it currently processes around 90% of our card volume. It allows us to provide quick and seamless purchases of cryptocurrencies via our service. Checkout.com is currently connected with the IXOPAY orchestration platform which is our primary integration (we are not integrated directly with Checkout.com). We currently have one secondary payment service provider that is also connected to IXOPAY in the same way as Checkout.com.
  • Account management (by Charis and the team)
  • Customer support for specific transactions (which is integrated nicely into the platform)
  • Tech support regarding integration, etc. (really quick and very helpful)
  • We miss downloadable PDF proofs of specific transactions (both debit and payout). We occasionally need this to prove to the client that we actually processed certain transactions.
We only have experience as a crypto merchant, and we had great experience so far, so we would say that Checkout.com is definitely a good service provider for crypto merchants.
But in general, we like the simplicity and user-friendliness of the service (but not at the cost of providing more advanced features, especially with regards to its risk engine).

Checkout.com helps me to verify a customer who wants to use a card to fund their brokerage/investing account, and automatically settles the proceeds with a US based custodian of funds.
  • 3DS Auth process
  • Timely settlement to an overseas merchant
  • Highly Stable API and Good Documentation for Implementation
  • The reporting around fees charged
  • The inability to get fees for a particular transaction till 10-15 minutes after it has happened. We cannot show the exact fees to our customer.
  • The excel report of the checkout.com fees is rather crazy and has two different lines for certain fees as well as too many columns. There must be a simpler excel breakdown possible for those who don't want all the details.
Checkout.com is good at the verification process and redirects based on the success/fail of a verification

We use Checkout.com for card processing. It has been the best processor so far as it covers our global clients. We have in the past found it difficult to get good coverage within the latam region for instance, but with Checkout.com it has resolved most of our issues and now covered. Having the backoffice with good stats has also increased our approval rates as we download our transactions from there as well as check the declines reasons with great details.
  • Covers globally
  • Trusted provider with great premium merchant service
  • Improve clients needs and results are proven
  • Automated reports weekly could be a great function
  • Flexible adjustments in the backoffice
  • Live chat bottom in the back office/or to submit tickets
For brokers, it covers globally.

There are plenty of in house solutions that Checkout.com offers such as payout solutions, intelligence for fraud etc.

For fraud, Checkout.com offer to help with preventing fraud and can detect clients with suspicious activities which is a great tool especially for brokers who deals with client money. Checkout.com is great at listening to your needs, and adapt or tailor a solution which is right for you. We have had a few cases in which this has been the way.

We use it to process card payments and manage our chargebacks. We removed all fraud rules and used another service to risk score transactions, as we find the preset rules very limiting and clunky.
  • Quick for pulling reports.
  • Simple management of allow and block lists.
  • Quick and responsive portal.
  • Dashboards are not intuitive and difficult to create/manage.
  • You can't select more fields (e.g., email address) when reviewing disputes, and you can't accept more than one at a time.
  • Preset fraud rules cause a lot of unnecessary friction.
Overall, it's a solid tool, but it's just for processing payments. Some work needs to be done on UX and dashboards.

We use Checkout.com for cross-border cards and, starting next week, handle Nordic countries and part of the UK market. With Checkout.com, we can split volumes among providers to have redundancy and optimize performance so that Checkout.com may be the best option. In addition, we use checkout.com to handle exemptions (TRA) in a currency different than EUR and take advantage of their threshold in the UK, which is higher than all our providers.
  • Account Manager definitely present to quickly handle our needs.
  • Checkout.com is the only provider proactively proposing solutions to optimize our routing strategy to increase conversion rates and reduce costs for more than ten years.
  • They have extreme expertise in the area of payments that is not so obvious.
  • Regarding IA, the report did not contain much data at the beginning, but they worked on it. This is excellent!
  • I would like no limits in volumes due to some questionable stakes.
  • Not much to add.
Checkout.com is the best provider we have had in the last ten years. It is very well suited to developing solutions for conversion rate optimization, cost reduction, and services like smart acceptance. I don't see any issue with them; there is no scenario they are not able to handle. I don't see any scenario in which they are not suitable.

We use Checkout.com to enable our users to load their fintech accounts at Modak. We use them to accept debit and credit cards across all major networks - Visa, Mastercard, Amex, and Discover. We use multiple types of their integrations - including one time payment links, recurring payments, subscriptions, etc., As such, we are one of the power users of Checkout.com.
  • Great implementation support
  • Good service for a mid market client or a fast growing startup
  • The tech works and seamless in acceptance
  • Their in-built fraud tooling is getting very good
  • Their dashboard can get better. They have been making improvements
  • Faster settlements as it's a bit of a pain to have big reserves till ACH clears every day
  • Much stronger consumer facing brand name in the US so more end customers trust the links powered by Checkout.com
I'd recommend them highly. Stripe is too messy on mid-market/enterprise support and it's easy to get lost in their sales qualifying matrix. Adyen is too big and doesn't want to work with mid-market/ fast growing startups. Checkout.com takes that time to understand and work with you to figure out how to create solutions. It's one of the best infra partners we worked with in fintech. Hence, we highly recommend them.

Checkout.com is our main payment gateway when it comes to accepting transactions all over the world. Having clients worldwide, it might be difficult to be able to perform well in terms of payments acceptance. Checkout.com allows our users to successfully make purchases by having a wide selection of processors which allows them to perform well in different countries.
  • Performing at a high acceptance rate in a variety of countries
  • Advanced reporting practices
  • Easy to use & UX friendly dashboard
  • Great customer service
  • More advanced ways of viewing useful data (i.e. graphs for AR over time, etc)
I think it's great to use for medium or large companies, but I believe it might not be worth considering it for someone smaller due to competitive pricing. Also I heard cases where users had a hard time integrating their software, therefore it might be a good idea to plan accordingly and be ready to dedicate decent dev resources.
