Better Braintree Payment Gateway for Easy Digital Downloads allows e-commerce stores powered by Easy Digital Downloads to process Credit Card and PayPal payment.
Our EDD Braintree payment gateway comes in three checkout flavors:
The payment fields are shown directly on the checkout page and the payment is made when “Purchase” button is pressed.
This checkout style has some PCI concerns in that credit card information passes through your server before being sent to Braintree for processing.
Only use this if you have SSL and already PCI compliant otherwise use either of Drop-UI or hosted fields.
Dropin-UI is a sleek, ready-made payment UI for accepting cards and PayPal payment in your website.
The UI includes a card entry form and, if enabled, PayPal/Venmo buttons (Venmo only on mobile). When a user completes the UI, your client code obtains a payment method nonce for use on your server thus reducing your PCI compliance to SAQ A and eliminating any security worries.
Hosted Fields renders an iframe to handle input for each field where your customer enters credit card details. This provides you with the ability to customize the look and feel of your web page while ensuring that you are compliant with the new PCI rules.
