picking a paysite

Postby garyg » Wed Jun 14, 2006 1:48 pm

I need help picking a paysite like clickbank, 2checkout or paypal. I was told if I use these sites to take credit cards, checks that I would have to pay for ea. product site. I want to buy resale right products and put sites up selling them. I know it cost $49.00 to open an account but do you have to pay this amount for each product or site you put online or do they allow you more than one site? Any help would be appreicated! Thanks, Gary

Are you going to have an affiliate program for your products? The answer to that will make a difference into what solution you choose. If you will want an affiliate program, consider or

The drawback to just using PayPal is that it is not available in all countries. If you dont plan to have an affiliate program, 2CheckOut is a good option that is easier for international customers to use.

Hi Gary,

I personally do business through Clickbank,, and PayPal. As Lynn mentioned, each has its own benefits and down sides.

In regards to your question, though, I am not sure if 2Checkout allows multiple sites (I only have one through them), but the account really has no limits as to how many products you can set up in your account.

The $49 setup fee is a ONE-TIME fee. Not per-product.

The company does, of course, take a certain percentage of each transaction sale, however. I believe it is $0.45 per sale, plus 5.5% of the sale amount. But that's the only other way that you pay them, after the initial setup fee.

I would look at the 2Checkout FAQ page for answers to the 'multiple site' question -

I hope that helps you out...let me know if you have any other specific questions! :)

the fees depend...

It looks to me like you're looking to learn what the fees are on each account? i.e. Clickbank,, and PayPal.

There are really a few issues to look at:

1) When you visit each site, they will tell you the fees per transaction. Each company charges differently. So the fees are one thing. Set up fees and ongoing fees and transaction fees.

2) Right now I use both PayPal and 2CheckOut and 2 checkout is much more expensive. However, many folks prefer to not use Paypal and others only want to use it. So if you don't offer a choice, well, you might loose sales.

3) Some companies don't allow all products to be sold using their system.

Just a few things to figure ... great that you're asking before you hit any problems.
