By J. Stephen Pope

Here are seven good reasons why you should consider (also known as 2CO) as your credit card processing solution and merchant account alternative.

  1. Accept Credit Cards Without a Merchant Account:

    For an initial fee of $49.00, you can accept all major
    credit cards as well as online checks. Fees are 5.5% of
    sales and $0.45 per transaction.

  2. Handle Both Intangible and Tangible Products:

    While restricts itself to digital products,
    2Checkout can handle both digital and physically shipped

  3. Shopping Cart:

    Whereas ClickBank handles only single sales, with
    2Checkout, you receive a shopping cart. Alternatively,
    many third-party shopping carts integrate with

  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
    website, this improves sales and reduces credit card disputes.
