2Checkout Offers Broadest Set of Online Checkout Methods in the World with Release of New Payments API

2Checkout, a leading global online payments provider, today released a new suite of payment API (Application Programming Interface) libraries from beta testing, letting merchants embed 2Checkout’s payment processing capabilities directly into their website while enabling complete customization of the user experience. Called 2Checkout Payment API, the API libraries join 2Checkout’s hosted options: Standard Checkout and Inline Checkout. With these three checkout platforms, 2Checkout is the payments vendor with the broadest set of customizable payment methods in the world.

Merchants use 2Checkout to process credit card, debit card and PayPal payments. Merchants benefit from using the Payment API because it allows them to directly integrate 2Checkout’s technology into their website with complete coding control, which lets existing website stores and payment pages maintain their current design and user experience. Merchants can therefore focus on designing a unique and branded checkout experience for their customers.

“2Checkout’s APIs were a breeze to implement on our website, and they let us keep total control over our branded shopping experience,” said Bill Albert, CEO and owner of educational products merchant STEMfinity. “2Checkout’s technology gave us the broadest selection of payment options to choose from, and we were able to migrate gracefully from our previous checkout method to Payment API. We are now expanding our online sales into international markets with a locally-accepted and proven payment system, and avoiding the expensive pitfalls of expansion.”

2Checkout’s Payment API is also one of the most secure and fraud-resistant in the industry, and can be implemented in 15 different languages to accept 26 different currencies and 8 different credit, debit and PayPal payment methods.

“We’re the only payment vendor that uses both JavaScript encryption on the data and exchanges it for a non-reversible token. We are unwavering in our focus on protecting our merchants from customer fraud,” said Shawn Budde, CEO of 2Checkout. “Using our technology, the merchant is no-longer liable for credit card breaches and there’s no need for them to get PCI level-1 compliance on their own, since we take full responsibility for all of that.”

Payment API Details

2Checkout’s community supported API libraries are available in PHP, PYTHON, RUBY, .NET and JAVA. The libraries are easy to integrate, and include modules for more than 100 of the most popular shopping carts. Other features include:

  • Pre-integrated payment gateway and merchant account
  • Free access to TrustWave’s TrustKeeper® PCI Manager portal & Trustwave security tools to help protect the merchant’s site, with a custom “Trusted Commerce” seal to boost shopper confidence
  • PCI Level 1 certification. Client-to-server API integration encrypts sensitive credit card data and eliminates PCI liability from the merchant. Client-side javascript safely tokenizes shoppers’ credit card information so that no sensitive data ever touches the merchants’ servers
  • 2Checkout’s proprietary, International fraud prevention technology tracks every transaction and sale and constantly monitors for unnatural activity
  • Increases merchants’ conversion rates and gross sales by automatically presenting shoppers with the most relevant local payment options. Accepts local payments in 196 countries, 26 currencies, and 15 languages

Broadest Set of Checkout Methods

2Checkout offers two hosted checkouts and an API solution, forming the most comprehensive selection of checkout options in the world.

  • Standard Checkout displays checkout pages based on the buyer’s device while maintaining the merchant’s unique branding.
  • Inline Checkout provides a simple payment form that gives shoppers the appearance that they are still on the merchant’s site, while the merchant receives all of the security benefits of a hosted checkout solution.
  • The Payment API empowers merchants to integrate 2Checkout’s payment processing directly into their website with the most customization options.

Regardless of which 2Checkout checkout method merchants choose to use, their new merchant accounts can be underwritten and approved instantly. No other bank or payments processor lets merchant start selling as quickly.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
