    Hey Jeff,

    This is a member of the support team at Braintree. Just one small correction: you can create subscriptions in the Braintree Dashboard, through the steps we explain here: https://support.braintreepayments.com/customer/portal/articles/1080653-all-about-subscriptions#Creating

    We really appreciate your analysis!

  • Soren

    Additionally, I’d love to know the other limitations you see in the dashboard?

    Dwolla doesn’t process credit cards. You didn’t do your homework here buddy

      Oops, that is a typo on my part. I meant to say that Dwolla is ACH only and most like PayPal in that sense. I am fixing it now. Sorry for the confusion.

    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.

      That’s a good point. Thank you. I have a couple updates to make to the post and will include this in there when I get to them.

        Or I might be thinking about currency conversions, either way a comparison would be interesting.

  • Milton Howard

    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!
