An Open Letter to WePay Customers: Feel the Hosted Checkout Love

Posted by Sean Edgar Category Icon2Checkout

Our distinguished competition at WePay recently announced the decision to completely retire their hosted checkout option, effective March 12th. While we understand the value of different payment interfaces, we’re still incredibly fond of the hosted checkout. And why wouldn’t we be? For thousands of new e-commerce companies, hosted checkouts offer an intuitive and agile way to jump into business without the hassle of formatting pages of code with ampersands, carets, and other keyboard squiggles we rarely pronounce correctly. Within a few keystrokes and an hour, signing up for a hosted checkout allows your website to accept payments securely. Fraud and PCI requirements? Don’t even worry about it: we’ve got you covered, and we would like to offer an easy migration to keep your company running on the platforms you’re familiar with.

When all is said and done, 2Checkout’s Hosted solutions are designed to take care of all of your sales processing so that you can focus exclusively on what matters: growing your business and customer base. 2Checkout’s Hosted platform offers two different variations to fit the needs of any online seller.

Responsive Checkout

Responsive Checkout dynamically adapts to any device where your online business exists. If your company thrives on tablets, smartphones, and papyrus (well, maybe not that last one —  it’s in Beta), then Responsive Checkout perfectly suits each online buying experience to format text, design, and other code to provide a consistent experience, no matter the platform.

Inline Checkout

Our Inline option reduces the checkout process to one screen used to collect your customers’ credit card information, which we process so you don’t have to deal with the legal hurdles of storing private financial data. Inline Checkout looks and feels exactly like a natural extension of your site, with a checkout screen that invisibly melds into your website to assume its look and feel. Call it the chameleon of the checkout world.

No matter which option you choose, 2Checkout’s Hosted solutions offer superior advantages that help merchants sell securely with ease.

  * Sell digital or physical goods safely with industry-leading fraud prevention that protects merchant’s profit margins

  * State-of-the-art PCI protection ensures customer is safe and secure

  * Ready-integrations with over 100+ carts

  * Use simple buy now buttons through carts that allow you to quickly and easily include products for single and recurring subscriptions

  * Program an unlimited number of digital and physical goods with single or recurring billings

  * Include as many product options as you want, generating a code for each item that links directly to your hosted dynamic checkout

  * Personalized service to ensure each seller’s success

We aim to be more than just a processor to our sellers, striving to be a partner that helps online merchants grow into new markets with the best tools possible. In addition, our bundled pricing guarantees that you pay the same rate regardless of what payment method you buyers use. 2Checkout charges NO monthly or statement fees, and sellers only pay a flat rate on processed transactions.
