We use Braintree for credit card processing.

Braintree is a good platform. They have good customer service. It’s not quite as well designed as Stripe, which I use with other companies, but it’s good and very secure.

Braintree is good, especially because Stripe similarly turned us down based on our category.

Braintree - Best Credit Card Processing Tools for Startups

Braintree is a credit card processing tool with a wide variety of features such as fraud protection, live customer support and the ability to accept over 130 currencies. It has a similar set of features as its main competitor Stripe, but with a few key differences. Stripe focuses on ease of integration, whereas Braintree is known for being more flexible on pricing for companies with upwards of $80K in transaction volume per month. In addition, Braintree was acquired by PayPal, which makes for best-in-class integrations and transactions with other PayPal services.

How startups use Braintree?

Braintree is more popular among larger Series A and B companies, largely because its prices are far more negotiable than some of its competitors for clients who see more than $80,000/month in sales.

How much does Braintree cost?

Braintree charges 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction, but only after your first $50,000 in sales--transactions before that are free. They also offer reduced pricing once you hit $80,000 in gross transaction volume per month. Multicurrency charges cost an extra 1% and chargebacks are slapped with a $15 fee.
