    One interesting feature the is diverse among the group that you don’t mention is how they deal with foreign credit cards. I think Stripe charges 2%, Braintree 1%, and Balanced possibly nothing.

    Great article Jeff! A correction….Balanced does not charge you $0.25 for payouts to your bank account as stated in the article. However, it does charge you $0.25 each time you pay a seller in a marketplace.

    Great article too Jeff.
    Just what I realized as I come across deciding whether to use Stripe or Braintree. It seems that Stripe makes it a lot more hassle-free to charge customers in different currencies. With Braintree you have to go through their account management team to create a different merchant account for each currency. As for Stripes, it seems that you can just pass the currency code in the API and they would automagically do the conversion for you!
