|Veteran looking for new processor. opinions/suggestions wanted|
Looking for a new processor with a few requirements :
1 - customizable order forms
2 - affiliate system
3 - remote script execution/callbacks (for example, creating an account/license on a successful order, adding licenses to an already created account, etc.)
Over the years I have used many processors... all with their own nuances/issues including clickbank, regnow (now mycommerce/digital river, plimus(now blue something I believe), and cleverbridge.
I have taken a look at 2checkout, but found their order page examples to be quite ugly and did not see much of anything mentioned in terms of customizing that. I also saw no mention of an affiliate system.
PayPal is something I do not even want to try. No customization/templating and my experience was people still think you need an account to use it. Affiliate system is non-existent with this as well.
Are there any 'new' players in this area which meet the above? I'm sure there must be some members out there in the same boat with similar requirements so please chime in.
they don't meet your criteria, but i've been hearing about BrainTree a lot.
why do you want your payment processor to be integrated with your affiliate program?
Why wouldn't I? Over the last 15 years I have always used an integrated affiliate program. I don't need to handle payments, commissions, refunds, withholdings, create reports, etc, etc, etc.
Not to mention you usually have a fairly wide base of affiliates right off the bat when using an integrated solution... for instance, I believe our current processor has an affiliate base of 45,000. Obviously not everyone will see, but the added exposure to an existing affiliates helps.
If the approach is the more the merrier, yup, your way is best.
