ok when it works but pray you never have a question because their support sucks. you get only one response a day and I don't care how well you think you can explain your problem, it always takes a minimum of 2-3 replies (meaning 2-3 days) before they will even understand what you are asking.
worse, there's a good chance that even after they finally understand the problem, they will just give up and tell you to "search stackoverflow for an answer". (really?) If SO doesn't have the answer, you're screwed.
worst support experience of my career. (and I've had some bad ones)
note: I'm talking about Braintree here, not Foxnet Software. those guys are good.
BrainTree update: just learned they only support web based processing. Which is ok for server based apps like nopCommerce. But I've got a front office app (c# winforms) that integrates with my nop store. We process credit cards for phone-in and walk-in customers from this app. We used to use PayPal Direct API from both nop web site and front office app.
Had to switch to BrainTree for nop, now I'm migrating our app to BrainTree. No can do. They do have a .NET library for their API, but it can only charge existing payment types (repeat customers). There is no way to create a new payment method.
Who writes a payment processing API that can't accept new payments? Not surprisingly.... BrainDeadTree, that's who!
So anyway....now I'm back to looking for a new processor again. Sigh....
FOLLOW UP ON BRAINTREE:
After a week and a half of back-and-forth - waiting days for responses - I finally was able to communicate my needs to a BrainTree support tech and get him to understand.
As it turns out - you CAN charge new cards via the API. It's not as well documented and a little round about because it assumes you are fully PCI SAQ D Compliant (which most folks are not). But that's not an issue for me since the whole reason I am using BrainTree is to avoid storing credit cards in my database in the first place. So PCI compliance is not an issue for me.
So - BrainTree? *STILL* the worst customer support in the industry. But at least I can confirm that the service is usable. So be prepared to invest some time into it.
Which plug-in would you recommend payment methods for Nop? I am having serious difficulties in finding one that works in a stable way.
Which plugins have you tried ?
What is the problem with them ?
