    Anyone use payment alternatives to PayPal?

    In the future I'll be looking into opening an online store. I'm not sure if I'll always be able to use PayPal so just to be on the safe side, I'd like to explore other options.

    I'm looking at 2Checkout. Is that one any good? Stripe is another one listed in the xenForo payment options page.

    Also, if I do use 2Checkout or Stripe, if someone feels uncomfortable paying with a credit card, would they still be able to use PayPal to pay the bill via 2Checkout/Stripe?

    From end user perspective, like Stripe. Though last I heard they tend to side with buyers instead of sellers when it comes to buyer dispute/refunds. Maybe that has changed now. But worth looking into their terms and conditions surrounding disputes, refunds etc to see if you as seller are properly protected. Guess same goes for 2checkout - to check their terms and conditions for such.

    I use Stripe, integrated into WHMCS. Most people still use PayPal, but I've had no issues with Stripe so far (been using them for around 5 years now).
