    Good balanced review.

    As I went and read the legal terms and conditions, the following line in Braintree’s terms caught my eye:

    “This Acceptable Use Policy may be amended by Braintree at any time by posting a new version of it to our website. By accessing or using the Payment Services after a new version is posted, you agree to all amendments reflected therein.”

    So you can spend years writing code to integrate with Braintree’s APIs and have your entire business depend on their services and they can pull the rug under your business by unilaterally amending their policy, impose it immediately by posting it on their website without telling you or giving you notice or time to comply with whatever has changed. Incredible!

    Any smart business should probably have more than one processor so that their business is not held hostage by the whims of one or the other.

        What kills me about Stripe, is lake of phone support when dealing with people’s money.
