Give – 2Checkout Gateway
It’s no secret that 2Checkout is a reliable payment gateway because it offers support in 15 languages and 87 different currencies. They have top-notch anti-fraud safeguards, an accessible API with plenty of documentation, and a gorgeous UX. Donors from all 197 supported countries have access to 2Checkout’s full suite of tools.
Donations can only be processed in U.S. dollars through the 2Checkout Payment Gateway. From outside the US, we ask that you use a separate gateway.

It is necessary to first download and then instal the 2Checkout Add-on in order to begin the process of integrating the 2Checkout Gateway with GiveWP. You will furthermore be required to activate your 2Checkout Add-on subscription in order to obtain access to our Priority Support and receive updates with an one click.
You will need to have an active 2Checkout account, the 2Checkout GiveWP Add-on, and the Core GiveWP plugin installed and activated on your website in order to be able to take payments through 2Checkout using the GiveWP plugin.
