How does 2Checkout work? works by allowing sellers to accept online payment for their goods and services. After you are approved, integrate your website with 2Checkout using either our free Plug and Play cart or a shopping cart of your choice. Your customers will order on your site, and then pay within 2Checkout’s secure PCI compliant payment page. When the order is completed successfully, we will send the customer an order confirmation and then send them back to your website.

During the review, we look at your products and services, review your marketing techniques, understand the pricing and review the checkout process (don’t forget to add a refund and privacy policy).
