ok so I checked some reviews of 2Checkout, and they've scared me away! Some reasons can be found in the comments below this article:
So then I've decided not to go with that processor but have another in mind. I assume the Shop module code can be modified to connect to any processor I choose? Correct me if I'm wrong. If I am wrong, then in order to move ahead at this point with a paid uCoz web site (I've already developed content pages with the free version of the service which I'm ready to convert to a website with a purchased domain name) I need to be able to choose a payment gateway/processor with which I'm comfortable.
Can I choose any gateway/processor I need to integrate with this module, or would I need to create another (custom) web page for accepting payments?
Thanks very much,

casinowallstreet, if you don't want to use the 2Checkout, there are other payment methods available, for example, WalletOne and others.
