2Checkout - How does the upgrade affect you?
We know you're excited about the new platform, and must have lots of questions about the changes brought over by the upgrade process.
We're ready to answer any questions you may have regarding your new Admin Area and your previous account settings.
Buy links and ordering capabilities
Your current buy buttons continue to work as before. Your integration with third-party shopping cart applications, such as Shopify or WooCommerce, is not affected by the upgrade process, and you can continue using connectors for delivering a high-quality shopping experience to your customers.
The platform upgrade brings you ConvertPlus, a cart template designed to help you sell better, globally. ConvertPlus simplifies the payment process for your customers, while providing a localized experience through 29 languages available in cart. Use ConvertPlus to place test orders and experience the entire ordering process.
ConvertPlus is fully customizable via Cart Editor, a modern visual interface that allows you to personalize the payment experience for your customers.
Historical data AND current renewals
In the first phase of the upgrade process, you'll be able to see your historical data (orders/transactions), starting with January 1, 2016, in your new 2Checkout Admin Area. Your new Reporting area provides full access to the information related to your orders.
Your existing renewal orders will be re-charged according to the setup you have in place on your account. They will be marked accordingly in your new Admin Area as soon as they are renewed.
Your payouts are sent based on the existing setup on your account. The payout schedule remains unchanged, with payments being made on a weekly basis.
You can continue to use the same bank account, PayPal account or Payoneer details to receive your funds at the end of the billing period. The frequency with which we issue your payments has not changed, and no fees have been introduced.
Your existing user credentials can be used for logging into your new 2Checkout Admin Area.
There is no additional change required for you before accessing your new account. The user roles defined in the previous Admin Area continue to apply. As the new Admin Area contains additional sections that allow you to access new functionalities, you can create new roles that restrict or expand the access rights of your users.
INSTANT Notifications service
Your Instant Notification Service configuration is not affected by the upgrade process. You will continue to receive the same level of information (parameters), based on the same event triggers. As the structure of the INS remains unchanged, we have added new improvements on the overall systems, such as:
- You can now add multiple endpoints that receive the notifications, in case you have more than one system which needs to receive the information.
- You can now customize the parameters sent as part of the Instant Notification Service, in case you don't need to receive all the parameters from the notification.
We know how important APIs are for your daily activities. Your API integration is not affected by the upgrade process, and you can continue using the same methods for placing orders, retrieving sales, or for other administrative purposes (creating products, price options, coupons).
Your new platform contains extended API functionalities, that allow you to automate additional tasks and processes from your systems. To use the new API version, you need to use a different authentication flow.
What's new in 2Checkout
Your new platform comes equipped with a wide area of functionalities that can help you increase your business while providing a better checkout experience to your customers.
Customer 2CO myAccount
2Checkout is helping you deliver an improved customer experience, by launching a portal for your customers. Your end-users can use their 2CO myAccount to manage their orders/subscriptions, check their past transactions, update their payment and customer information or to contact the Buyer Support team.
The new customer portal is available out of the box for customers that place orders for your products.
Advanced localization tools
When is the last time you have sold a product in a new market? The new 2Checkout platform is designed to help you overcome the regular difficulties of the localization efforts.
There are over 130 transactional currencies that you can use to display the right price for each market, and 33 languages that will make the shopping experience as natural as possible. The checkout process will turn into an effortless process as our systems will use IP geo-location to determine customer's country and show the right language and price content based on their location.
TOP NOTCH SUPPORT
With the new 2Checkout platform, we are introducing a dedicated team that works on solving every inquiry you have, via email (24 x 7) and Live Chat (24 x 5). Your customers also benefit from a faster resolution time on their payment inquiries from our Buyer Support team that provides phone and email assistance in 10 languages and works on a 24/7 schedule.
ENHANCED REPORTING AREA
Getting accurate and granular reports has never been easier in 2Checkout. Follow your most important business metrics and retrieve the information you need in various formats, or have it send regularly to your email address. The new reporting area allows you to track your most performing products, the markets that are bringing you the biggest share of your revenue, or the profitability of your marketing campaigns.
