After a few weeks of extensive working, today we’re thrilled to announce you that FrE Braintree is officially released. We decide to conduct this extension with the aim of providing you and your users more choices when checkout besides current payment gateways on FreelanceEngine site.

Braintree is currently available to merchants in 44 countries around the world and supports 130+ currencies. No matter where your users are located, they can easily check out since Braintree supports multiple payment methods, including almost all major credit and debit cards as well as PayPal account.

It’s quite easy to set up and use Braintree as a payment gateway on your site. If you are located in the list of countries that Braintree currently serves, you only need to have a merchant account and your site is running FreelanceEngine theme. That’s enough!!

In order to understand the flow as well as setting process, please follow the detailed guide below:

Back-end settings

1. From your Dashboard, go to PluginsAdd New to add FrE Braintree plugin.
