    I prefer 2co and many web hosting companies are using their service. But I am not sure about Plimus.

    Plimus And 2CO Both Are Good But Plimus Is Free To SignUp As A Vendor And 2C0 Charge Signup Fees Plus Per Site Fees Also If You Have Two Sites You Have To Pay Individually For Each ...

    Better Go With Plimus !!!

    Plimus is a pretty decent payment processor as compared to 2CO. They also have way too many payment option available (I like the payment by phone the most).

    Couple of things I don't like about them is their darn high fees (for small payments) and their monthly withdrawal unlike 2CO which offers weekly payments.

    I use 2CO, and their service is great.
    There are registration fee for signup and fee per transactions.

    Some of my clients is not happy the percentage for each transaction.

    I used Plimus a lot, but buyer sometimes refuse to send payment with Plimus and the reason they dont want to fill up all their details in the form. On the other hand with 2CO buyer simply login with their Paypal username and password and they are done.

    So I suggest go with 2CO.

    I prefer Plimus over 2CO because one time, I paid with 2CO and I never got my product. I waited a week then I went to their customer support. They said that they would refund me in a day or two. That is why I never use 2CO. Plimus on the other hand, does better than 2CO IMO.

    Hi All, Leore from Plimus here.

    We know that our review process can be frustrating at times, but it is an essential part of our service due to the high rate of fraud with electronically delivered products.

    I would also like to share that we are highly focused on maintaining a highly secure platform, but at the same time we are also trying to reduce the impact on the customers and vendors, so we are always working on ways to improve our review system.

    Feel free to email me if you have any more questions or want any more information at leorej@plimus.com.

    Go for 2CO as they are having the best payment structures. Though the fees are bit compared to other processors but the services are excellent.

    I was originally looking at Plimus but got scared away when I heard about their phone call verification. Any additional step in the order process just lowers conversion rates. Also, after doing some research on the net, I found many customers from those who were using plimus, were extremely frustrated with the process. (That can't be good for business) Do a search for yourself on google to see what I'm talking about.

    I have since decided to give FastSpring a try and can tell you that so far the service has been top notch. I'll update this thread ...or actually I'll probably just start a new one with a detailed review once I have had a chance to integrate FastSpring and use it with a live site.

    As for 2CO, I use them for another site of mine and although I haven't had any problems, it really bothers me that I cannot have the order pages keep the same look and feel of the rest of my site. If FastSpring works out, I'll probably be switching.
