    "One of the best gateway: Simple integration and lovely api. Awesome gem. They have all the required apis which any merchant requires. There was one rquirement i need from braintree. It was to fetch all transaction of a day. The version which we used i guess it was 2.0 or something, i needed to upgrade my gem version to 2.22.0 and used the api i wanted. It was a simple task and explored a lot about braintree. I completed the task in a day and was pushed to production the same day. It was an lovely experience. Would love to be a part of braintree and would love to contribute to this open sourced gem."

    "Bluesnap is an Excellent Partner: Communication! They are always super helpful. So many processors never contact you when an issue occurs with your processing account. Many of them take days to reply and when they do, their answers are vague and leave things unresolved. Bluesnap is true partner who knows that their success is directly tied to yours. Their payout schedule is also very good. Obviously, our company needs cash to operate and their payout schedule ensures steady, uninterrupted cash flow. We been a Bluesnap customer for 9 years and will remain one. "

    WePay review by Rachel H.
    "Reliable solution: I like that customers can quickly checkout using a debit/credit card without having to log in or sign up. The setup is simple and direct. Users have little to no trouble with checking out, we do not see many errors or trouble reports for failed transactions like we do for other processors. Account changes are real time, so if something is needing to change, its all present within the account dashboard. I like choosing how often I want distributions to be sent out and the option to choose how they are sent out. As long as nothing has been sent, updates and changes will impact the next distribution. So if you change your mind, you aren't stuck. I also like that I can have multiple accounts within my same account for different platforms. With the sub accounts, each has their own payment settings and the ability to direct withdrawals to their own specific bank accounts. This is handy for those managing multiple campaigns. "

As a merchant we had many accounts to switch over and Sage Paya was extremely helpful in teaching us how to setup their system to work for us. We have now been using them for 4 months and it is extremely simple and user friendly. However the best part is their customer service. I have never encountered such amazing and thorough customer service. They as a company go the extra 10 miles for us to make sure we get what we are looking for.
