Adyen

Adyen is a good tool to manage payments and to switch between different currencies. Easy to understand, despite the poor design, it allows you to manage payments and billing easily. It is pretty useful to refund payments and check the status of refused one. You can trust list users and allow them to pay when they got locked by the system for any reason, or you can understand if the reason for rejection is due to an issue on the user side and advise accordingly.

Authorize.Net

Authorize.net is well suited for a small businesses that plans to collect a lot of payments. It accepts all the major credit cards and works flawlessly in processing the payment quickly and accurately. Its low fees work well for a large volume of payments. Due to it's difficult importing and exporting settings, Authorize.net is less appropriate for growing businesses that are looking to use analytics to leverage it's success. It's also less appropriate if you plan to offer subscriptions or payment plans.

Cons

  • When looking for payments details such as last 4 digits card (for instance), it would be great to display more details about the transaction in the results, as the full name of the card holder.
  • The layout is not the best one. There is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to website design.
  • A functionality to disable the credit card details instead of deleting it at all.

  • Authorized.net's administration web site UI is very primitive while a lot of web sites are adapting to a modern UI design.
  • Sometime my business users don't know how to use Authorized.net's admin site to manage customer transactions. That's where the usability issues are.
  • I know sandbox is for testing, but sometimes I couldn't test a few scenarios in a sandbox environment. I received a server error and process failed error message with my test credit card intermittently. It is really important for us to test all possible scenarios, and Authorized.net's sandbox is the only environment we can rely on.

Alternatives Considered

I have used several tools to manage billing and payments in my job. It was not my choice in my company to use Adyen but we are pretty happy with it. It can be integrated very well with the other tools we use in our job and it is reliable and safe.

Authorize.net is often on the more complex end to implement (at least for custom implementations). Stripe and Braintree are somewhat more developer-friendly and also have more intuitive user interfaces (for management and day-to-day use).Some other services also have better price points - be sure to shop around.But, it has a longer history than some services and high support among third-party software, plugins and other solutions.

Return on Investment

  • I cannot see any negative impact.
  • It is good to synchronize the payment details that come from Adyem in our CRM and this allows us, now, to manage refunds and subscriptions in there and get any action done in real time and recorded in all the platforms.
  • Quick and reliable it is a good tool to be used for managing and checking credit card transactions details.

  • We switched to Authorized.net from FirstData after suffering a few fraudulent transactions. It saves us a lot of money and prevented potential fraudulent payments.
