Here are seven good reasons why you should consider 2Checkout.com (also known as 2CO) as your credit card processing solution and merchant account alternative.
1. Accept Credit Cards Without a Merchant Account
For fees of 5.5% of sales and $0.45 per transaction, you can accept all major credit cards as well as online checks.
2. Handle Both Intangible and Tangible Products
While ClickBank.com restricts itself to digital products, 2Checkout can handle both digital and physically shipped products.
3. Shopping Cart
Whereas ClickBank.com handles only single sales, with 2Checkout you receive a shopping cart. Alternatively, many third-party shopping carts integrate with 2Checkout.
4. Integration With Third-Party Affiliate Programs
2Checkout integrates with third-party affiliate programs such as ClixGalore.
5. Eliminate Sales Tax Problems
Since you must agree to sell your product to 2CheckOut for resale, 2Checkout becomes the retailer responsible for collecting sales taxes — not you. This simplifies or eliminates sales tax administration for you.
6. Fraud Detection
With 2Checkout, you have to wait until they complete their fraud detection checks before you deliver the product. This protects the merchant as well as the customer.
7. Other Advantages
As well, 2Checkout features free on-line support, their own affiliate program, and more. Your products are also searchable from shopping center links on their website, thus giving you more exposure. 2Checkout also allows for multi-currency transactions which enable customers to buy in their own local currency. According to the 2Checkout.com website, this improves sales and reduces credit card disputes.
