A complete, secure payment solution

PayPal Powered by Braintree enables you to securely receive online payments for the products and subscriptions in your WooCommerce store. Accept all the major credit and debit cards along with PayPal. The PayPal checkout button sits on both the shopping cart and main checkout pages. We do all the technical work so you can help future-proof payments to accept whatever emerges next. It also includes brilliant features like recurring billing. Best of all – there’s no fee.

One Touch TM checkout experience

PayPal Powered by Braintree includes the One Touch TM checkout experience, which eliminates the need for PayPal customers to enter a password or card details for up to six months. PayPal customers can pay with fewer clicks wherever and however they shop. Fewer screens, fewer clicks, and less friction can help improve conversion rates – especially on mobile.

Choices in fraud protection

You can enable and customize fraud tools, including AVS and CVV checks, and risk threshold rules, to reduce the likelihood of fraudulent activity. No developer work is required — just turn them on.

Capture of prior authorized transactions

With PayPal Powered by Braintree you can opt to capture previously authorized transactions directly from the WooCommerce Edit Order screen. Automating this task helps you get paid faster.

Refund processing from within WooCommerce

Process refunds for orders paid with credit cards or PayPal directly from within WooCommerce, reducing store management time. Issue full or partial refunds from the Edit Order screen and send the transaction automatically to Braintree by clicking “Refund via Credit Card” or “Refund via PayPal.”

PCI DSS v3.0 SAQ-A compliance

Using Hosted Fields – which create iFrames that are hosted on our servers and fit inside checkout form elements – you provide a secure, customizable way for customers to enter their credit card information without impacting your theme. Hosted Fields make your operations PCI DSS v3.0 SAQ-A compliant. Sensitive payment information is posted directly to Braintree, bypassing servers. Customers get a seamless checkout, and you get worry-free, necessary security.

New and Improved WooCommerce Braintree Payment Gateway!

We know you’ve all been waiting for this moment! Okay, maybe not, but we’re really excited to share some news with you. Were you unsure of which Braintree extension you needed to make your WooCommerce store complete? Problem solved! We’ve merged the Braintree and Braintree Transparent Redirect extensions to support shiny new braintree.js, which means you now get the simplicity of a direct gateway with the reduced PCI compliance of a redirect gateway, giving you the functionality of two great extensions in one fantastic SkyVerge package (yay upgrades!).

What does this mean for your store? We’ve taken the easy PCI compliance from the transparent redirect gateway, so you have fewer regulations to worry about, and blended it with the single-page checkout of the direct gateway, which leads to higher sales conversions and makes more money. Basically, you get the best of both worlds.

Can this get any better? Of course! Now the all-in-one WooCommerce Braintree Payment Gateway supports WooCommerce Subscriptions and WooCommerce Pre-Orders to bring new functionality to your payment gateway.

WooCommerce Subscriptions allows you to set up recurring billing for your customers so you get paid on time, every time, and Pre-Orders lets you take an order and charge the customer when that order ships, converting more sales for you since it reduces the hassle for the customer and encourages them to buy your product, regardless of release date. Welcome to Braintree Utopia.
