Braintree Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • Simple and easy. Allows us to take money on the go and it shows up instantly. Low fees and no hassle.
  • PayPal allows me to sell products and receive payment directly. I love how helpful customer service is.
  • The ubiquity of PayPal means customers are familiar with the brand and more comfortable using the device.
  • Great interface, easy to process payments. Flat pricing. Chip card-compatible. Can invoice from the app!
Cons
  • Sometimes I feel like charges in transferring money should be cheaper, if not completely eliminated.
  • There is not much that I do not like about PayPal. I receive payment instantly and the price isn't bad.
  • The funds to go back to your account take up to 3 days, and getting to customer service is a bit of a pain
  • The fees, although not outrageous, are not the cheapest out there. Wish the percentage was a little lower.

So easy to use and cheap! This is easy to use and very affordable, especially as a small business owner. I love that PayPal takes the fees out directly vs. At the end of the month. The ability to transfer funds directly to my bank account is great!

For someone who doesn't like having to deal with bank errands, this is super convenient and useful. I use this for almost everything I can use it for -- bills, vendors, personal transactions. The mobile app is really much simpler and secure now. Love how conversions between currencies are immediately available, as well as my transaction history.

Review Source: Software Advice

We do a lot of small craft fair / convention stuff and having more options for payments means that people are more likely to feel comfortable paying you when they can use an option they trust. So it is no bother for us to have more than one gateway to accept payment. That being said if you have one system that controls your inventory and you have a large inventory it may not be as easy for you to sync everything to several gateways. Also it would be nice if PayPal offered teh bottom of their barrel swiper for free the way some others do.Here is an extra app from PayPal that takes up no room on your device, connects to your PayPal account and gives you more options for how to get paid, which makes more clients comfortable. They have several card readers that are really affordable and there are no extra hoops to jump through just log in to your PayPal account and you have a tiny POS.

PayPal is perhaps the most commonly used online payment software that exists; it definitely is for me! So many websites use PayPal, it's a no brainer to get an account. You'll use it for everything. Transfer money back and forth to friends, your landlord, subcontractors; you name it, you can pay for it with PayPal.

I like how simple it is to set up, especially because I've used it in settings where one generally does not have too much time to train a user on the app or guide them through the process. Additionally, it has a lower price point than what you might see from other card readers out there. It's nice that this market is becoming more competitive and causing fees to go down.
