The new Handcraft is here!

Braintree coming to Europe later this year

For all you European businesses with web apps and services that have been having as hard of a time getting your payment processor up and running as we have, Braintree have apparently now announced their international expansion starting this autumn. Hopefully this means fewer headaches for everyone!

Braintree appears to be a good solution because it’s one of few payment processors that offers a “full-stack” solution. That means that you sign up with them and pay them a monthly fee and they handle all of your problems: processing, card handling, merchant account, gateways, recurring billing, etc. Currently there isn’t an existing service available to Europeans that matches that kind of offering, so it’s great to see them taking the next step into the international market.

Here’s the list of countries they’ll be supporting:¬†Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom.

Head over to their site to see their setup, including which currencies they accept, and sign up for their newsletter – they’ll be giving people access to their beta within the next few months.

  • There is currently another company that provides this kind of full stack solution. It’s http://www.fastspring.com . We have been using them for the past year but I have to say that their software isn’t easy to integrate so I look forward to switching to braintree or even better stripe.com when they become available in Europe.
