Overall Satisfaction with Digital River

Our company is using Digital River to accept payments from users via credit card and PayPal. We are using both - one-time and subscription options.
  • Almost fully customized templates
  • Very simple subscription flow
  • Allows to generate license on the fly using callback to back-end server
  • Very good technical support
  • Definitely need Web-based API to manage subscription including changes in renewal date
  • Add more languages (especially Arabic)
  • Redirect user to PayPal directly without entering to shopping cart
  • Works well with credit card renewals
  • Strong fraud detection system (very important)
  • Doesn't work well with PayPal renewals
  • High enough fee
  • Overall DR is good in this area
We are using Stripe as alternative solution for some categories of users and as a backup. Stripe has much more flexible API but less flexible template customization.
DR doesn't work well with PayPal subscriptions, renewal rate is very low. So, if company is using a subscription model it should have another payment system as a backup

Using Digital River

DR is good enough and it also depends what's the company goals. DR solves a lot of problems for company and it saves money in some cases.
