In order to configure your 2Checkout plugin, navigate to Settings > Plugins > Payment Processors.

Click 2Checkout in the drop-down.

If you are utilizing 2Checkout, it is recommended to mark Yes next to In Signup so that your clients can pay with 2Checkout during the signup and payment process.

Purchase RoutineThis setting allows you to determine which purchase routine will be better suited for your site.
Signup NameSelect the name to display in the signup process for this payment type. Example: eCheck or Credit Card.

The Purchase Routine has two templates:

Single Page Checkout - This will allow for the entire checkout process to be completed on one page.
Standard Purchase Routine - This will result in the checkout processing being routine, and it will go through necessary transaction steps which will result in the checkout process being standardized and not one page.

The API Settings are used if you want to set up 2Checkout Refunds in your ClientExec.

As 2Checkout users cannot access both the API and Seller Area, you need to go to your 2Checkout dashboard, then click Account > User Management > Create Username and create another account, making sure to provide API Access and API Updating permissions. Put that Username in the API Username input and the Password in the API Password input.
