WooCommerce Braintree keeps customers on your site for checkout, while using a secure payment form hosted by Braintree. Checkout is completely integrated into your site.
You can also opt to show detailed decline messages to your customers, no more “an error occurred” error messages!
PayPal via Braintree – NEW
Version 3.0+ adds support for PayPal via Braintree! Your customers can check out with Checkout with PayPalfor one time purchases, or check out via PayPal Vault to link a PayPal account to your store for future purchases. WooCommerce Braintree will intelligently detect which workflow to use based on whether the customer wants to save payment information (or if a subscription is purchased).
Security Done Right
This gateway integration makes full use of all recommendations from Braintree to maximize security. Credit card number fields are hosted by Braintree and embedded on your site so that sensitive information never touches your server! This means that the integration is PCI DSS v3.0 SAQ-A compliant.
You don’t have to redirect customers to another site for checkout and therefore reduce the chance that they’ll abandon the purchase, but can still maintain the highest levels of security. Rest easy knowing that your transactions are under virtual lock and key.
Securely Save Customer Credit Cards
Customers can easily & securely save multiple credit cards or link multiple PayPal accounts to their store account for faster checkout; payment data is stored on Braintree’s secure servers. There’s no limit to the amount of credit cards or linked PayPal accounts a customer can store on their account.
Customers can also select a default card, remove saved credit cards / unlink PayPal accounts, or add new payment methods from the “My Account” page so that you offer maximum flexibility and take away excuses for customers to say “no” to purchases.
Support for Automatic Refunds — NEW
Shop employees can now process refunds for an order paid for with Braintree (credit cards or PayPal) directly from within WooCommerce — no more logging into your merchant account to process refunds! Speed up your store management by creating full or partial refunds from the “Edit Order” screen and sending the transaction automatically to Braintree by clicking “Refund via Credit Card” (or PayPal).
If the transaction has not been captured or settled, a transaction void will be performed automatically instead to cancel the order.
Capture Charges directly from WooCommerce – NEW
Some users choose to set the payment gateway to only authorize charges rather than authorize & capture them. However, this requires the user to then log into the payment gateway admin to capture charges. Version 3.0+ of this extension allow you to optionally capture previously authorized transactions directly from the WooCommerce Edit Order screen rather than logging into your Braintree control panel to do so. Simply edit the order, select the “Capture Charge” action, and charges will be captured through Braintree (works for credit cards or PayPal).
Full Support for Subscriptions and Pre-Orders
Braintree is the ideal gateway for WooCommerce Subscriptions, offering support for all of Subscriptions features – payment date changes, subscription date changes, and more. With version 3.0+, you can also usePayPal via Braintree for subscriptions sold on your site, as customers can link a PayPal account via the PayPal Vault. This gives you a fantastic (and easy to use!) alternative to PayPal Standard.
WooCommerce Braintree also fully-supports WooCommerce Pre-Orders, so you can take customer’s payment information upfront and then automatically charge their payment method once the pre-order is released.
Multicurrency Support – NEW
WooCommerce Braintree will now let you save multiple merchant IDs in WooCommerce to support multiple merchant accounts (for different currencies).
By itself, this will not display any price changes in different currencies or process payments via your added merchant accounts. You must use a currency switcher plugin to enable multi-currency support in your shop and to tell Braintree which merchant account to run the transaction with — we recommend Aelia Currency Switcher (purchase required) as it’s already compatible with WooCommerce Braintree.
Fraud and Verification Tools Support – NEW
WooCommerce Braintree features support for some of the excellent tools Braintree provides to merchants, such as fraud tools, dynamic descriptors, and 3D Secure. If these are enabled in your Braintree account, you can enable them within the WooCommerce plugin.
