Both professionally and personally, we are really beyond impressed with the Braintree Payment Systems and have most recently incorporated them into the custom design of the New York Pass eCommerce website. Both the overall user experience (UX) and ease of use for mobile users are readily apparent. This makes for a seamless payment solution that is not only secure, but also speedy and swift with no negative impact on website speeds and loading times. For an online payment system that offers so much, we were glad to see that it did not have any negative knock-on effects for both the design and UX of the New York Pass website.
Braintree began in Chicago back in 2007 and has since grown to be a respected worldwide force in solutions for safe business payments. Acquired by PayPal in 2013 and reaching a milestone of fifty-billion authorised payments by 2015; the Braintree system can now accept online and mobile payments in over one-hundred-and-thirty currencies from forty-five countries around the world. As it is a part of PayPal, the Braintree Payment Systems can accept all of the major payments by credit and debit card companies. Notably, it can also utilise payments with the Chinese UnionPay system. This is an all-important player to consider due to the lucrative Chinese market and potential for businesses to trade within it. This also demonstrates a keen business sense by Braintree – their mission is to help both businesses and customers by breaking borders and offering their systems wherever possible. With Webheads being a global digital agency with clients around the world too, this is another level where our competencies complement each other.
We are excited at the prospect of what we can achieve together as we support clients with safe and secure payment systems to enable them to reach more customers and clients around the world. Between us, we have worked with AirBnB, Cisco, Dropbox, Eventbrite, JCB Card, Uber and more and are adept with payment gateways such as the major credit/debit card companies (Amex, MasterCard, Visa etc.) and those provided by Android Pay, Apple Pay, PayPal, Pay with Google, Venmo and more. As we work to curate custom website designs and bespoke payment solutions for businesses of all shapes and sizes, we do so knowing there will be no obstacles or tasks we cannot handle in this exciting partnership.
So here’s to Braintree – a partner who we cannot wait to work and grow with, well into the future. It is great to be an active part of this era of online payments and the safety of them, knowing that we are contributing to better business practice and strategy. As this is a guaranteed help to both businesses and their customers around the world; it is a guaranteed legacy that we are immensely proud to be a part of.
