Braintree Extended Gateway for WooCommerce has been released
The Braintree Extended Gateway for WooCommerce, with multi-account and Kount anti-fraud support, is now available from our shop. This new gateway requires and extends the excellent Braintree Gateway developed by SkyVerge, adding new, powerful features.
New features for Braintree payments
The standard Braintree plugin is a great product, developed by some of the most talented WooCommerce developers. However, it contains a few key limitations, which make it restrictive to use in a multi-currency environment. We worked in collaboration with some of our clients and Braintree Support Team to extend the standard plugin, while keeping all its original features.
The Braintree Extended plugin introduces two important new features:
- Support for multiple Braintree accounts (merchant IDs). Thanks to a seamless integration with our popular Currency Switcher for WooCommerce, it’s now possible to direct payments in each currency to a separate merchant account. If you wish to send EUR, USD and GBP payments to different accounts, you can now do so.
- Integration with Kount anti-fraud system. Braintree accounts include advanced anti-fraud features, provided by Kount. The Braintree Extended Gateway can integrate with the anti-fraud system, and provide you with additional protection, reducing the risk of fraud and chargebacks. Our gateway supports both basic Kount and Kount Direct, out of the box.

The requirements are almost the same of the previous gateway:
- An active Braintree account.
