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.

Payline Data

For medium, to large companies, I have recommended Payline Data.

Pros

  • Reckon genuine payments and trust list user when they cannot pay with their credit card.
  • Cancel payment details to avoid auto-renewals.
  • Refund payments in one click to the original source.

  • Payline Data has a great gateway and interface. Most credit card processors use a third party gateway to process payments. I liked that Payline had their own and therefore I didn't have to pay another company additional money. So this saves me money. To be honest it is a good tactical marketing advantage for them as well. If I need to log in and see transactions I log in to their site. The company that I used to work before used the third party, so I can't even remember their name as I rarely visited their site.
  • At first, their gateway interface was very blah. It did the trick, but it was so plain and frankly, it was ugly. They redesigned it several months ago and it looks a lot better now. Very easy to use as well.
  • Their API was very easy to set up. I did have a few questions about it and I was able to get very quick help.
  • They quickly set up my account. This was very important to me. I had tried to contact several credit card processors and had to wait for several of them to return my call. I immediately got a hold of Payline and they had the account set up quickly.

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.

  • I only have one complaint and it is a very simple one and probably easy to fix. But I receive a daily email from them that has my automatic subscription charges that were done early that morning. It shows a summary of the charges and the declines. The declines show a detailed description of what transaction was declined. But the successful charges are not listed. I wish it would list the successful charges as well.
  • The only other thing I wish is, I wish they were free :). But of course, they need to make money. With that being said, I think they are cheaper than some of the ones I have used before. Especially since I use their gateway and don't pay additional gateway fees.

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.

Honestly, I don't remember the names of the other credit card processors I have used prior to Paypal and Payline Data. I have used other merchant account services that integrate with the Authorize.net gateway. But Paypal was by far the worst. It was overpriced and integration was a mess as they themselves on their own site had outdated information.I wasn't just using Paypal's regular business account but I also had their merchant account services. Which meant I could process credit cards without people even knowing I was using Paypal. Their merchant card services were very sloppy and the API was a mess to set up. But the worst part of Paypal was their professionalism. On the other hand, Payline Data was easy to set up, cheaper to use and great personal and professional customer service. I felt very well taken care of.

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.
