How to securely migrate credit card data from Braintree to NMI –

At Tasker Payment Gateways, we specialize in recommending and setting up payment gateways for a wide range of high-risk e-commerce sites. Whether you’re selling FFL to FFL, vape and e-juice, pipe and glassware, tactical and non-lethal products, or tobacco and premium cigar products – we’ve got you covered. For the majority of high-risk businesses, recurring billing and stored customer credit card information can be a great tool for improving your sales and recurring sales. In this article, we’ll give you the step-by-step breakdown of how you can export cardholder data from Braintree into NMI. That way, you’ll have the info you need when you need it.

Recurring billing and stored cardholder data is a great benefit for plenty of high-risk site owners. Braintree, for example, is a popular gateway that makes it possible to store this information. Among other things, stored cardholder data makes it easier for returning customers to complete a purchase, simplifying and improving the shopping experience. As a result, this helps improve both customer loyalty and sales.

However, there are times where it’s beneficial or even necessary to export this cardholder data. If you’re in the position where you need to export data from Braintree to NMI we want to help make it as easy as possible you by discussing it in this article.

Why export cardholder data from Braintree in the first place?

There could be many reasons why you as a site owner might export cardholder data from Braintree. We can basically divide the motivation for exporting this customer information into two camps: need and want.

When you need to transfer sensitive data

Sometimes there can be compatibility or feature issues dictating that you need to export your customers’ cardholder data to another gateway. If that is the case for you, we want to offer you a couple of payment gateway alternatives that are all PCI compliant. NMI, ePN, and Authorize.Net are all excellent gateways for high-risk e-commerce. Better yet, the fact that they’re PCI compliant means that the export and transfer of cardholder data will be very straightforward.

When you want to export personal customer information

Another cause could be that you simply wish to change your payment gateway. Maybe you got a better deal or were offered better support with another provider. Whatever the reason may be, you don’t want to lose the ability to run recurring billing or simplify the purchasing process for your customers.

If you run a high-risk business, we strongly recommend the NMI payment gateway, ePN, or Authorize.Net (depending on your business type).

Exporting cardholder data from Braintree into NMI in 5 easy steps

While there are many great payment gateways, for now, we’ll work on the assumption that you’re going to transfer the data from Braintree to NMI. After all, NMI is a great fit for many different high-risk businesses and offers a unique, patented feature with its multi-merchant account management.

Before we outline the process, it’s worth repeating that NMI is PCI compliant – meaning that the process should be relatively straightforward. The reason we stress this is because it’s imperative for you that the receiving gateway is PCI compliant. Otherwise, Braintree will simply not comply with the export request.

In other words, you’ll need to provide Braintree with an attestation of your new gateway’s PCI compliance in order to export the data.
