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.

Prior to Braintree, we used Authorize.Net which is actually great however Authorize.Net's rates were not as competitive as Braintree's. One advantage that I would have to give to authorize over Braintree is their incredibly robust system which has settings and customization that go beyond anything else we had used before. At my company, we also used Stripe before and while Stripe is pretty good, it has certain limitations that Braintree offers a hefty solution for, hence why we had to switch from it. We are using Braintree as our main payment processor and using it concurrently with Amazon Pay Check out and Paypal Checkout without any issues.

Paypal's Business plan has a monthly charge in addition to the per transaction charges if you'd like to use recurring billing. Braintree gives you recurring billing options without the monthly charge and automatically sends a transaction receipt to the client each month. Once it is set up it is completely hands off which saves a lot of time. Bank of America merchant products. They charge extra for setups that include manually entered credit cards. They also have high start up costs that would take a while to pay for themselves due since we don't process enough transactions to make it worthwhile.

We used Braintree over Stripe because our developer was more familiar with Braintree and was able to integrate it the way we needed to. However, Stripe seemed like a good option but there wasn't any compelling reason in price or other features that made it worth taking more time for the developer to build the integrations we need.

We started using Chargify, but migrated to Braintree due to its more up-to-date libraries and easy integration with Paypal. We have not tried any other competitor, however, Stripe seems very interesting, specially now that their cross-country support is really broad. We are not aware of more competitors at this level of integration.

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.
