An all-in-one payments partner
Braintree helps businesses of all sizes, both small and large enterprises, accept and process payments. Companies around the world benefit from the technology and service of Braintree coupled with the scale, backing, and confidence of the PayPal network.
PayPal Powered by Braintree allows you to securely sell your products online by using Hosted Fields to help you meet security requirements…without losing flexibility and an integrated checkout process. Hosted Fields are little iFrames, hosted on PayPal’s servers, that fit inside the checkout form elements and provide a secure means for your customers to enter their card information.
Checkout is seamless, whether customers and clients are using credit cards or PayPal.
As of WP eCommerce version: 3.13.1, Braintree is available for FREE as long as your hosting provider is running on a PHP version of 5.4 or higher.
So if you are running the latest WP eCommerce and you don’t see the gateway under Payments tab in the plugin settings then contact your hosting and make sure you are on PHP 5.4 or newer
