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 products.

3. Shopping Cart

Whereas ClickBank 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 website, this improves sales and reduces credit card disputes.
