Newbie needs help about 2CheckOut or any similar PayPal support

7 replies
this is my first post here so bare with me

I'm creating my new online business "selling my commercial software"
my main problem is my country , I'm from Egypt and I can't have a PayPal merchant gateway

so after searching online, I found 2CheckOut which will provide me with the gateway that supports both CC and PayPal

now the question: is 2CheckOut good to use? "I hear they have issues with fraud", any better alternative? "which supports PayPal payment to customers and wire transfer to my Bank account"

the software price is around 500$
the software will have a license "so I need no-refund"
the software has a demo/trial version so customers can test it before buying

    It is okay to contact me! I have been developing software since 1999, creating many popular products like phpLD.

    2CO is a good alternative if your country doesn't support PayPal. I don't see any better alternative up to the time.

    I know a lot of people who have purchased via 2Checkout with no problem. I think they may even have a similar transaction dispute system like Paypal has.

    No, there are no real serious alternatives to 2co at all.

    You can't have it. Doesn't matter which exactly payment system you are using.

      yes I'm using Skrill right now in my freelancing work, and I asked them about gateway and I think it is usable, but the problem is always the customer, customers have PayPal , only like 10% have Skrill so this will affect the amount of sold items

      here is a message from 2CO support about fees,support in Egypt,no-refunds

      2Checkout does provide full service to Sellers in Egypt. All transaction types, including PayPal sales, are the same rate. For a $1000 USD transaction, 2Checkout deducts 5.5% of the transaction amount. There is also a fixed $0.45 USD per-transaction fee. The transaction fee for $1000.00 USD is $55.45

      2Checkout does permit a no-refunds policy. You will be responsible for learning what your tax obligations are where you reside.

    I think 2CO is your best bet.
    I had also been searching for a payment system
    since my issues with paypal are getting worse everyday.

    Am using paygear now for handling payment and delivery
    but even that uses paypal.
    I am thinking of shifting fully to 2CO in the near future.

    Best,
    Faraz
