I had the opportunity to integrate Braintree as a new gateway on a project I worked on last year (RoR project), the change from PayPal to Braintree was smooth and now it's really easy to maintain. The documentation for the API was super easy to follow. Really enjoyed using Braintree.
Braintree handles recurring credit card and Paypal payments for healthchecks.io. We liked the extensive developer documentation, the language-specific libraries and the friendly, timely communication from Braintree.
Gotta take the money, might as well take it in style and on all devices without too much headache. Oh and we use the fraud prevention tools.
Braintree is effectively the only good billing PaaS for Eastern European companies.
