INVOICES: Payment Gateways

What is a Payment Gateway?

A payment gateway is an eCommerce service that processes credit card payments for online and traditional brick and mortar stores. Payment gateways facilitate these transactions by transferring key information between payment portals such as SuiteDash and the front end processor/bank.

How to start connecting Payment Gateways

From the main menu, click Billing and then look for the Gateways tab.

From here, you'll have the option of setting up one or more of the available Payment Gateways.

Which Payment Gateway is best for me?

Firstly, if you are interested in setting up Recurring Payments, you will need to use either Stripe or Braintree. The PayPal gateway cannot be used with Recurring Payments.

SuiteDash has no special or promotional relationship with any of these Payment Gateways. We don't make money when you choose one or the other, and we don't take any cut of the payments that your Clients make through our platform. We simply act as the tool for payment, while the Payment Gateway handles all the actual processing and payouts.

Stripe

This is probably the best choice for most people. The application and setup is as easy or easier than anything else out there. It's easy to understand, the rates are industry standard, and it's trusted by some of the biggest companies on the planet. 

Stripe can be used for both standard Invoice payments and Recurring Payments.

Braintree

Braintree is also a very good choice for a Payment Gateway. The application setup is also straightforward, but can take a bit longer than Stripe. The rates are industry standard, and it's also trusted by some of the biggest companies on the planet.

Braintree can be used for both standard Invoice payments and Recurring Payments.

Authorize.net

Authorize.net is one of the oldest and most popular payment gateway providers. The application process is easy, straightforward, and approval usually comes in less than an hour for qualified applicants.
Authorize can be used for both Standard Invoice Payments and Recurring Payments

PayPal

PayPal is an industry leader, and most people already have a PayPal account. You should consider having a dedicated PayPal account for your business, however.

PayPal can ONLY be used for standard Invoice payments. PayPal cannot be used for Recurring Payments.
