Hi alexyes,

Frank has mentioned about 2Checkout.com’s online processing services, in response to your earlier post. This is available in over 200 countries worldwide, and set up instruction is available at their website Link hidden: Login to view

Cheers! :)

Hi Alexyes,

Since I have not used their services, I'm not sure which type of account is most appropriate for you - but I think these links should answer your question regarding their fees:

Hope this helps, all the best!

Unfortunately cost shopping is not really a luxury online sellers have. Your best rates will tend to be from a local bank with whom you have done business, but most people doing this do not have an offline business they can use as leverage in a new banking relationship. 2Checkout is more expensive than PayPal's Pro service but they have a better reputation for not messing around with customers, and are extremely easy to get approved. There are other providers out there with rates approaching 15% -- mainly for high-risk merchants (could be due to business, location, credit or other issues.) The 1.5-2.5% offline merchants is generally just not available to small, independent online sellers.

I feel I should also point out that, when shopping for merchants, having no business and just rate shopping will not yield the same results as having an existing business that is getting scraped for 5.5% and fees (ie. it's often easier to get your foot in the door with a better provider if you already have a track record somewhere else.)

I'm not sure how you mean to define a type -- do you mean the different cards accepted? 2Checkout and PayPal both work internationally; I am sure there are other processors outside of the US that I personally have not heard of -- sorry I can't be of more help on that one.

I use Link hidden: Login to view myself, which I gather from the eBay forum is pretty much the standard for regular sellers. I'm not sure how many different options there are -- there's a "light" version of Website Payments Pro, and an invoice-only option but I'm sure PP's website could detail those options better than I can.

There's a basic comparison of Standard vs. Pro Link hidden: Login to view. Ironically, now that I'm looking at it I wonder if I could get by with just using the standard service lol. Doesn't seem to be that much difference.

I've been using PayPal since its very beginnings, back when it was still X.com.

What do I think about them? I hate them. They cost too much, their customer service sucks, they are very heavy-handed with other people's money and play fast and loose with legal semantics pertaining to that money. Worst of all, they treat established sellers like idiots, by saying things that are simply not true and expecting the accountholder to not know any better (eg. when I had a 21-day hold put on my incoming payments, their FAQ on the matter says this is standard practice with merchant accounts, which is nonsense that anyone who has ever had a merchant account knows is nonsense. So why they would say such a thing is beyond me.)

Why do I use them? Only game in town for rapid deployment (ie. I can set up processing on a new site with a few clicks) and because consumers trust the logo. They are very easy for new merchants to get approved, and they integrate well with eBay and other platforms. Not much other upside to them, really.
