2Checkout, founded in 1999, serves more than 22,000 merchants worldwide. 2Checkout’s payment processing service is used by merchants to sell to every visitor to their website, regardless of the visitor’s country of origin. 2Checkout’s payment service automatically localizes the checkout experience for each buyer, optimizing language, currency and payment methods maximizing sales conversions. This growth capital financing will be used to accelerate expansion of the company’s global payments processing platform.
“The global e-commerce market is massive and continues to increase at a double digit rate of annual growth. Online payments are a critical component of e-commerce and the providers in the space are consolidating into a few global platforms. 2Checkout will emerge as one of the global leaders in payments,” said Devin Mathews, Managing Partner at Chicago Growth Partners. “Now is the perfect time to help scale 2Checkout to the next level.”
“2Checkout already has a global customer footprint and a solid brand reputation among merchant banks, payment networks, online retailers and partners like Brink’s, which is a multi-billion dollar company,” added Don Dixon, managing director at Trident Capital. “No other payments processor can make those claims.”
