Picking a payment processor? Stripe, BrainTree, vs Paypal?


We are building a SaaS app which will have a recurring payment model. Exploring to see which payment processor is best for our needs.

Our only requirement is to be able to transact the whole thing on our own site (and not send the user to a final payment page on another site).

How do the big three compare and which would you recommend?...

  • Stripe
  • Braintree
  • Paypal

You can achieve this with all three of them, but with PayPal there is an extra charge of $30/month.

Choosing a payment provider should be based on a number of factor, price is only one of them. Make sure to check your needs, budget, expected revenue stream vs. various fees, the ability to keep your buyer on your site through checkout, availability of support, frequency \ timeliness of settlements, whether or not you need foreign currency exchange, etc.
