    I've used 2checkout for years and I've never had a problem. They're great with service and support. Paypal, on the other hand, should be shut down (IMO). Nothing but a nightmare, multiple times with multiple accounts - personal and business accounts. A quick Google search will shed some light on Paypal for you. Hope this helps. Good luck

    Yes the reason im moving from paypal to 2checkout is they froze my account. I opened a personal account in 2010 and i just opened by business account in 2012 because i started a business. They decided they would freeze my account and told me that i can no longer use them because multiple accounts or something of that nature.

    Thanks for your insight

    Both are good. 2checkout doesn't allow "internet marketing" products.

    I'm sorry to hear that. That's exactly what Paypal did to me multiple times. Of course, they claim to hold any balances for a set period of time and then release but, to date, I've never received any checks - that was years ago. Anyway, 2co has been great to work with. When I started with them, they charged a sign up or acct activation fee. I asked them to waive it and they did. Reasonable and flexible company to work with. Best of luck

    I can't say enough bad things about PayPal. Thousands of dollars in reserve, almost destroyed my company. Really, if you can stay away from them, do it.

    Ok but do they allow SEO service products like link building package?

    Thanks

    Paypal is best IMHO, I like it because you can get a paypal debit card and have instant access to your funds. Plus they are pretty good about disputes.

    I haven't tried 2 checkout but what I hate about Paypal are the fees. It's so much that they are taking instead of just a fixed rate. Does 2checkout have better rates?

    Those above who love PayPal obviously don't have any volume of sales to speak of. When you start doing real volume, then you find out why they have so much negative feedback.

    Personally I don't trust to PayPal at all, so 2checkout is the only solution for me.

    I tried both but people seems to trust paypal more than any other payment processor.

    I like them both the only down side to 2co is that up can't put internet marketing products on there
