This plugin used to work for a short time in fall 2015. But shortly after Gravity Forms was upgraded it stopped working. It appears the Add On is no longer supported and has not had any modifications or updates to keep it functional. What is worse is that it did not show any actually error messages about payments and DID allow people to submit the form and THINK they were paying online. But no transaction happened at all, so the payment was totally lost and we did not find that out until it was too late. According to Braintree they seem to be encouraging people to use a WooCommerce enabled plugin instead.
Broken. Took my site down when I upgraded gravity forms. Had to disable my payment page, which in retrospect was stupid to base around a plugin that I have no control over.
Will happily remove this if and when the dev fixes the plugin.
Fatal error: Access level to Plugify_GForm_Braintree::authorize() must be public (as in class GFPaymentAddOn) in /home/philadev/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gravity-forms-braintree/lib/class.plugify-gform-braintree.php on line 311
Will be happy to change my review when it is fixed. Apparently a new Dev has taken it over, but as things stand it is completely broken and has not been updated since late last year. I don't even have access to the Braintree options.
Gravity Forms v1.9.19
This plugin was very easy to install and setup. The settings are easily entered under the initial form settings. It does take an extra few steps to add a Braintree "feed" to each of your forms, but each one took only a few seconds to activating.
The main reason it does not get 5 stars is because it is lacking an important modern requirement for most merchants - AVS and Email Receipt support. Basically, the plugin does not pass the email address and billing zip code with the transaction at all, so if you have AVS and Email Receipts turned on in your Braintree account - it will fail / decline the payments with a generic error. I really hope the new version 1.2 comes out soon and supports zip code and email address fields in the data it passes to Braintree.
In the GravityForms - Braintree Settings this message shows:
"This add-on needs to be updated. Please contact the developer."
I was looking for a email or contact to contact lukerollans, but could not find any. So how can I update?
Thanks for help!
This plug-in was a great tool to bring in a payment gateway (Braintree) to our client's website without having to recreate all the forms. Worked immediately but then we had problems. The reason we had problems is that our client turned on "Send Email Receipts" in their Braintree account. Since this plug-in does not relay the purchaser's email address to Braintree and if you enable email receipts in Braintree, the Braintree gateway handles that by disallowing the payment. Learn from our pain/error. We had to spend 45 minutes on the phone with Braintree troubleshooting to try to see why payments could not get through. They had to dig into their error logs to see why payments weren't being accepted.
This is a great plug-in. A nice enhancement for the future would be transfer of purchaser email data so that Braintree email receipts can be utilized. We have to use Gravity Forms notifications for now.
I was looking for WordPress and brain tree integration and stumbled upon this plugin that works in conjunctions with Gravity forms. I had not used Gravity forms before but after looking what what it can do, immediatly installed it and this pluign. Within minutes I was able to put my form together, configure brain tree sandbox feed and start testing. I would have given it 5/5 stars, but it's missing support for recurring payments. According to the author who was super responsive, this feature is in work and next release will include it.
I had trouble, Luke replied very fast. Great guy!
I used this plugin to switch from Stripe to Braintree. I'm enjoying the added control I seem to have with Braintree as a payment gateway, and especially the $50k boost (no fees). This plugin is very straightforward and gets the job done. It does lack some desired features right now at the time of writing, but it is very new. I did have a minor issue that was not the developer's fault, and I was impressed with the fast response to my support request. I hope that this plugin gains popularity and the developer is motivated to continue adding features.
We were able to hook up a clients Gravity Form to Braintree in under 30 seconds. Works great!
