MemberGate introduces Braintree Integration as a new Payment Processor option.
Braintree is PayPal's newest payment processor. Braintree allows you to accept payments without a merchant account. It allows you to accept payments with one account and includes data encryption via the Braintree Vault. This means that your customer's credit card data will be saved in the most secure manner - at the payment processor.
Available to users in over 40 countries and enables payments in over 130 currencies, Braintree is one of the simplest ways to get paid across all devices.
Braintree provides an easy sign-up process and there are no additional fee's beyond each transaction fee. The transaction fees - taken from their pricing page: 0.30 per transaction + 2.9% of the amount. That's it. There are no monthly fees, no hidden fees and no minimums. It's really simple pricing!
Braintree is the trusted payment processor for companies like Uber, OpenTable, EventBrite and AirBnB.
Braintree is available to people living in the following areas:
- United States
- Hong Kong
Available Payment Types
- American Express
- Diner's Club
Acceptable Site Topics
Most organizations can use Braintree's payment processing system. There are some cases where their service is restricted. Checkout Braintree's Restricted Access page to see if your site topic can use their services.
Braintree Vault Option and Security
Braintree's payment gateway system includes a token option which they call the Braintree Vault. A token gateway saves credit card details at the payment gateway. This allows sites to use the highest level of data security when it comes to credit card information that is no longer stored in your site's database.
The use of a token system option reduces the risk involved as credit card information is not stored on your site. It also increases the ability to consistently pass the PCI testing.
Recommended Over Authorize.net?
Because of their low cost, ease of signing up, ease of passing PCI and not needing a separate merchant account, it is likely that Braintree is going to be a better resource than authorize.net as a payment processor on your MemberGate site.
