Braintree, a PayPal service

Braintree is a lower cost alternative to many of the options business owners have through their bank. However, they will need to be techy or be working with a developer to set up. The setup and backend isn't as user friendly as alternatives. Braintree is a great option if you'll need to manually type in credit card details. Banks will sometimes charge a lot more for that option. The manual option is nice if your clients aren't as tech savvy and prefer to pay over the phone than to pay on your website.

We use Cardknox differently than I imagine most people would. For example, we do not use their client database feature, as we have all that stored in our medical system. Another type of business would likely find that feature a big help. We are very pleased with Cardknox's service and support, which is not often required.

Pros

Braintree, a PayPal service

  • Braintree has excellent integration with the BigCommerce platform. The switch of our previous payment processing gateway to Braintree was very easy and only required a few clicks.
  • Tying into Braintree's BigCommerce integration, for company's like ours that are on the BigCommerce enterprise plan, Braintree's rates for BigCommerce enterprise customers are extremely competitive and saved us money.
  • Braintree has a pretty easy to use portal that can be accessed through the same login we use for PayPal which we are using in conjunction with Braintree with ease.
  • I've only had to call Braintree twice and my customer service issues were handled extremely quickly and easily.

Cons

Braintree, a PayPal service

  • Not a very good subscription management platform for a Saas business, but they make up for it on the API with others that are
  • Doesn't have a lot of additional features, but that's what you'd expect out of a payment processor
  • Very expensive per transaction, but the reality is that any processor who helps early stage companies accept online payments are expensive.

There's a huge cost in migrating payment providers, and we're very happy with Braintree so far.

Their support is a joke. There's nothing "supportive" about them. Every time I call in with an issue no one has an answer or even a recommendation. I am put on hold and no one ever comes back. It's time to find another processor.

Alternatives Considered

Braintree, a PayPal service

The price and quality has been a part of why we chose Braintree as our main payment method. We started with PayPal but as the business was growing, we needed a system that was easy to implement to get paid by cards. We looked into Stripe, but it was more difficult to implement, and had a higher starting cost.

Cardknox

We have used other card processors, but in my opinion, Cardknox is in another league. Their product works; it is easy to install; it is constantly being improved, and they have great support.

Return on Investment

Braintree, a PayPal service

  • Simplified billing so we spend less time on it
  • Saved $20 a month or more when compared to alternatives that have a monthly charge.
  • It gives peace of mind because we know that any service we use in the future will likely integrate with Braintree

Cardknox

  • Patients are much more secure giving us their credit card information since we have switched to using Cardknox. They even have the option of entering it themselves to reduce any risk of the number being overheard to zero.
  • It is much faster and smoother to find and charge a card when necessary.
