Certain aspects of payment processing (including which payment method types you can accept) vary depending on the banking partner for your Braintree production account. When we set up your production account, we send you information about the payment method types that your banking partner supports.
If you already have a production account, refer to the Accepted Payment Methods page of your bank-specific support articles.
Some payment method types are only available in certain countries or regions, so your business location matters, too. Similarly, your customers' locations determine which payment method types they can use.
The guides in this section assume that you already have client-side and server-side integrations using our SDKs. You’ll find high-level SDK support information in each guide, with more granular version support details in our SDK changelogs on GitHub.
To access the greatest range of payment method types, use our latest client and server SDK versions.
If you don’t already have a Braintree integration, follow the basic payments integration guide in Get Started first.
The guides in this section on the left will walk you through a basic integration of each payment method type we offer, from availability and features to implementation details and code snippets.
There are generally 4 main steps to accepting a new type of payment method:
- Configure the payment method type: Enable the desired payment method type for your Braintree account and complete any required registration steps with the payment method provider
- Update your client-side integration: Add a customer-facing UI to your checkout to collect payment method information and set client-side options
- Update your server-side integration (when applicable): Ensure your server acts on the collected payment method information appropriately
- For simple use cases, the same server-side code can handle any payment method nonce, regardless of the payment method type – so you may not need to update your server-side integration at all.
- However, some payment method types require additional data on server-side calls or don’t allow certain actions (like vaulting), and more complex use cases may require unique server-side implementations.
- Test and go live: Confirm your setup is working correctly end-to-end in both sandbox and production and complete any required go-live steps
