It now seems 2Checkout will no longer provide their services to webhosts. they are sending this to their webhost clients

Hello,


We have an important message to share about the newest banking regulations and requirements which will affect your business. Due to the latest VISA and MasterCard protocols, we are no longer supporting cyberlocker service businesses. As a result, your 2Checkout account will be closed on September 15, 2015. We regret we are unable to meet your business’s needs.


Any remaining funds in your account will be paid out in 90 days after your most recent sale. Should you have any questions regarding your account, please contact sellersupport@2co.com or 1 877-294-0273.


To help you avoid disruption to your business, we can recommend contacting AlliedWallet, a provider that works with cyberlocker service businesses. Visit their website to apply.


Again, we regret we are unable to support your business. We wish you and your business the very best.


Regards,


2Checkout Seller Support SellerSupport@2co.com + 1 614 921 2450 Toll Free: 1 877-294-0273
this is what a cyberlocker service business is

Quote:
A file hosting service, cloud storage service, online file storage provider, or cyberlocker is an Internet hosting service specifically designed to host user files. It allows users to upload files that could then be accessed over the internet from a different computer, tablet, smart phone or other networked device, by the same user or possibly by other users, after a password or other authentication is provided. Typically, the services allow HTTP access, and sometimes FTP access. Related services are content-displaying hosting services (i.e. video and image), virtual storage, and remote backup.

it has that, worse is WHMCS offers a partner deal with them. I still have a 2co account even though i have not used them in a while as i dont like their method of it you dont use in in a 4 month period they drop your account to a buyer account, so you cant sell through them until you get them to reinstate it. so in a way they are forcing you to get you clients to use them

I have never been a fan of 2Checkout. We use Authorize.net which also integrates with WHMCS and have never had a issue!

what gets me is this

Quote:

so if that's the case then web hosts will not be able to accept card payments through any provider

First I've heard of this. We use 2CO as well, but have not received this notice.. I wonder if this applies to US companies as well.

It is web hosting, they have no way of knowing if you are hosting normal sites or cyberlocking services, so they are not willing to provide services to the web hosting business.

I phoned them regarding this

Yep and if it wasn't then why are some hosting companies on WHT getting the email, but before it was anything they could find.

My account was closed for 1 refund, which I refunded to a client.

This thread is a familiar song sung by the same characters. Here is what I found

According to their twitter account: "We continue to support hosting service providers, we no longer support cyberlockers, or file sharing services."

That's what happens when you rely on a customer service rep that doesn't know the difference......again!

The issue there is they say one thing and do another… they can say all they want on social networks but what happens behind the doors is another story.

I think they still provide service to web hosting companies, but we stopped using them about 2 years ago. They weren't funding us properly and they were constantly claiming we need to pay additional signup fees. I think they are very unorganized there.

so what you are saying is we should not believe what a company says or its employees say, but believe what other say on forums etc.

How do 2co know if you are hosting normal sites or cyberlocking services.

I would rather believe what a company says rather than know it alls on public forums.

I have spoken to 3 different people from 2co and got the same information.
