Almost since the day we launched, startups from across the globe have been asking when they can start using Braintree. You’ve been waiting patiently as we work feverishly to help ecommerce companies in all countries accept payments online. We’re excited to announce that Braintree is now available to merchants of all sizes located in Europe and Canada!
We’re thrilled to provide the same technology available in the US to merchants around the globe as they launch, support, and scale their companies. Merchants of all sizes located in 27 countries can now access the same Braintree payment gateway, recurring billing, and credit card tokenization as their US counterparts. As always, all of Braintree’s merchants can accept payments online in more than 130 currencies.
Braintree has always been committed to making payments easier for developers to integrate and manage, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to make payments easier for international merchants. Simplifying payments and providing the ability to obtain a merchant account will remove a barrier that has blocked merchants in these countries from getting their business off the ground.
A great example is Server Density, a UK-based company that provides an easy to use server and website monitoring service. Server Density switched to Braintree from another payment processor during our beta period. David Mytton, founder of Server Density, shares his experience:
“Most European merchant account providers aren’t tech savvy enough to understand our software-as-a-service business model. They didn’t understand our risk and assigned us inappropriate rates. We then had to go through an additional company for our payment gateway. Braintree’s application form only took a few minutes to fill out and their API is so much simpler than what we’re used to. All of our services are now with one company, not two. All we had to do was an easy integration with the API and then we’ve never had to think about it. This frees up a lot of time for our company.”
Here is a list of countries Braintree currently serves:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
- United States
