Simplify your entire SaaS billing stack:

Braintree is a payments processor

Braintree is a payment processor for internet businesses. Create checkouts, accept card payments, and manage payouts.

Paddle is a Revenue Delivery Platform

Paddle manages all payment methods, subscription billing, sales tax compliance, fraud protection, revenue recovery, currencies, metrics (and more), giving SaaS businesses all they need to sell software online - all from one, singular platform. 

#1: All-in-one platform beyond just payments

Braintree only provides a solution for how you take and process payments. 

Paddle is much more than a payment gateway. All aspects of revenue delivery are handled by us, meaning you won’t have to worry about any painful integrations.

#2: Higher revenue performance in every market 🌎

Businesses using Braintree are limited to Braintree’s specific banking relationships, meaning that the number of payment routes are also limited. That means more failed payments and more churn. 

Paddle’s payments team maintains relationships with multiple global banks and payment processors so you can operate with confidence and maximize every revenue opportunity.

#3: Active support from day one

Unlike traditional payment processors, Paddle sellers get all the help and support they need throughout the processes of implementation, going live, and expanding into new markets. Together with solution architects, we work with each seller to get them ‘growth ready’ and set up for optimum success.

#4: No guesswork for global tax and compliance 😌

Paddle handles tax and remittance globally, taking full liability for tax, fraud, and compliance along the way.

As a reseller, our compliance becomes your compliance. We fight fraud, chase chargebacks and failed payments, and manage reconciliation for you. 

#5: Lower cost with all-in-one pricing 🤩

SaaS businesses are starting to think about the cost of their revenue delivery infrastructure more holistically, factoring in: payment processing tools (Braintree), subscription management tools, and tax compliance calculators.

Paddle offers all of the above (and more) within one, simple tool - and one tool means one set of costs to manage and reconcile.
