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.

This presents the customers with a customized invoice, it does manage a lot of attributes. The prices and dates with the entitlements and so forth. This also includes a great feature it will configure the invoice by fields with, clients, products, and a billing plan. I do enjoy that you can send the invoices and notifications automatically with the schedule that I have chosen. It is a great product, it ensures that the outstanding balances are accounted for and billed appropriately I do not really have any negative feedback on this product.
Read full review Pros 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.

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

It just works.

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.

Braintree is better at handling international payments and supporting a variety of payment methods that can all be configured from the same dashboard. Braintree supports PayPal, Venmo, Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc. in addition to simply credit cards like Stripe. Braintree has a vault of existing user payment methods so the user doesn't have to re-enter their information each time.

We selected Vindicia since they were one of the only providers who could run a proof of concept test. The other providers were asking for exorbitant sums of money and good faith to show the results would increase.
Read full review Return on Investment 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 Read full review This product does have some kinks, yet I believe they are working on fixing them, I have had the software slow down and sometimes freeze.
