Payment Gateway Options

Which Payment Processor is Right for Your Business?

There is no shortage of great payment processing options, but deciding which one is right for your business takes an understanding of what makes them all different. There are always questions to consider. Do you sell a high or low volume of goods? Do you advertise merchant services globally, or just in the US? Do you need your payment gateway to integrate with other businesses services you depend on? 

We’re here to break down the best payment processor options so that your business finds the perfect match. Check out our guide below. 


Authorize.Net

Authorize.Net makes accepting credit card payments very simple, and it’s been doing it since 1996 (back when “.net” was a bit more common?). Since it was founded two decades ago, it’s become one of the most widely used payment gateways on the internet, helping hundreds of thousands of online merchants.

Best for: Credit card payments


Braintree 

Braintree is famous for making payment possible from anywhere, including 130+ currencies and using any type of mobile or desktop device. With Braintree, you can accept international payments through Apple Pay, Bitcoin, Venmo, Android Pay, and credit cards as well. 

Best for: Global companies


Dwolla

No company makes ACH payments easier than Dwolla. They also don’t charge transaction fees, making them ideal if you need a high volume of transactions -- it’s all included in a flat monthly rate. Using Dwolla, you can move money through email, phone, or even social media. 

Best for: High transaction volumes


PayPal

PayPal is a familiar face in the payment realm, and even owns other brands on this list (Braintree). What’s great about PayPal is how easy it is to set up. Most of your customers probably have a PayPal account -- and if they don’t it’s crazy easy to create one -- so it’s not a bad idea to incorporate a payment provider they’re familiar with. 

Best for: Small businesses


Stripe

The great thing about Stripe is the ecosystem of integrations at your disposal, including dozens of accounting, e-commerce, analytics, and invoicing companies. Because of this, it makes it an ideal choice for larger companies who rely on many other operational systems. 

Best for: Larger companies


Onebip

Onebip really has the mobile payment thing figured out. Your users can pay you through Onebip in a single click right from their phones. They also offer recurring payment, as well as web and desktop billing. 

Best for: Simplicity


2CheckOut

2CheckOut is about as worldly as the Olympics, available in a whopping 211 markets around the globe. It enables users to collect payments in a variety of ways, including PayPal and credit cards. But what really stands out about 2CheckOut is the company’s superior fraud protection, which includes a unique algorithm to assess over 300 variables in 3 seconds to identify markers of fraud.

Best for: Security


Worldpay

As the name might suggest, Worldpay offers payment solutions globally. What really sets the company apart is its versatility; it offers ways to collect payments over the phone, in-person via card machines, and, of course, online. For a business with different revenue streams, Worldpay might make a lot of sense. 

Best for: Versatility


In case you’re wondering, every one of the solutions above seamlessly integrates with JotForm’s robust form builder, perfect for order forms, subscription forms, donation forms, and registration forms.

Were you aware of how quickly you can turn any JotForm form into a money-maker? Do you have a merchant account with any of the payment processors listed? Let us know in the comments!

    I am interested in using paypal, we have a business account however, paypal says you dont have to have a paypal account to make a payment and each time we have gone in to requesting payment through jotform it directs the payee to creating a paypal account. Am i doing it correctly. Can you give me some advice.

    PayPal has stopped its operations in Turkey. Other payment processors are not suitable for small businesses in Turkey. I think you need to work on alternatives.(iyzico)

    Hi there,

    in your email newsletter you showed this form where the customer can choose between
    1. Visa/Master/Amex/Discover and
    2. PayPal
    How is this done? It looks great! I would like to do the same!

    Hello,

    Could you advise me about the best payment processor for my case ? I am not sure we can use any of these solutions when the account is in FRANCE.

    Please find my needs :
    - Receiving account is in FRANCE
    - Every client will pay from a FRENCH bank too.
    - many transactions from September until March (no other transactions from April until August).
    - amount of transactions can be from 19 euros to 600 euros.

    Thank you so much for your kind help,
    Mélanie

    I have Paypal Payments Pro installed on my forms and used it for several years with no problem, but recently I painfully discovered that PayPal offers little protection against chargebacks. Can you mention any other payment processor that can be integrated with Jotform that might offer better chargeback protection? Any link to more info on this issue?
