Say “Hello!” to Braintree’s payment processing

As I’ve already mentioned back in May, one of the things that a part of our team was working on over these past couple of months was the following:

We wanted to replace the old and clunky payment processing setup that we’ve been using on SpinRewriter.com since 2011, and integrate something much more modern, flexible and user-friendly.

What am I referring to? Well, for the past 6 years, the only way of getting access to Spin Rewriter was going through PayPal. So, when you wanted to sign up for Spin Rewriter access and you clicked that button, you were first automatically redirected away from our website — to PayPal’s website.Β Then you needed to log into your PayPal account, click “Confirm” a bunch of times on the following pages, and then (hopefully) find a teeny tiny “Return to merchant” grey button just to find your way back to us. It was kinda… meh.

And then, if you decided to purchase one of our cool power-ups, like the WordPress Plugin and the WP license that comes with it, you had to do the whole dance again. Our website -> PayPal -> login -> click click -> hopefully find your way back -> done. Again, kinda… meh. πŸ˜€

So we’re all super excited to announce that we’ve now rolled out a brand new Braintree integration across the entire Spin Rewriter website. Here’s just some of the benefits:

  • You can sign up for Spin Rewriter using your PayPal without ever having to leave our website. It all happens inside a user-friendly pop-up thingy.
  • You can now also sign up for Spin Rewriter using your credit card, also without having to leave our website! You just type in the card details, and you’re good to go. This wasn’t (at all) possible until today.
  • If you decide to purchase one of our cool power-ups, it’s as easy as clicking a button. You don’t need to repeat the entire dance, you just get what you wanted to get. It’s pretty cool.
  • It all looks about a thousand times more modern and worthy of the year 2017. πŸ˜€

Oh, and — as an added benefit — we should be able to support additional payment methods in the future much more easily. So, if our customer support desk starts getting bombarded with requests for Apple Pay, Android Pay, Venmo, or Bitcoin support — we should be able to roll that out rather quickly, too! πŸ˜€

Go check it out — we’re really happy about this!
