We’re delighted to have launched our Breww Trade Store (see announcement) and have one significant feature which didn’t make the cut for the initial release - accepting card payments online.
Below is what we’re proposing to build. We’d love to hear your feedback on this proposal and if you’d be interested in this feature (or not - in which case we’ll spend our time on other features ).
At the moment, in your trade store settings you’ll see a
Payment requirement setting, with just one option of
Accept all orders without online payment. We’re planning on adding 2 extra options:
Require online up-front payment always
Require online up-front payment if order would put customer over their credit limit(with no credit limit set up for a customer, this would always require a card payment)
The next part of the puzzle is how to accept the card payment. We’re at the moment planning to build a Stripe integration to let them handle securely processing the card data and settling the payments directly to you. You’d need a Stripe account (at time of writing, they charge as standard 1.4% + 20p for European cards charged in GBP, see here). Note, however that the Stripe fees would be between you the Stripe to agree/negotiate on. Breww will just facilitate the payment process for your customers.
We’re also happy to consider other payment services, but Stripe’s fees are fair, and they’re a trusted partner of ours already (we use Stripe for our own billing).
So, what do you think?
- Would you be interested in taking card payments on your Breww Trade Store?
- Would the options above (as to when to charge by card) work for your business?
- Would Stripe work for you, or would you like other providers?
