Braintree Challenges PayPal With Marketplace Debut

Braintree has launched its Marketplace API designed to “streamline payments for market-style businesses,” according to Braintree’s website.

TechCrunch notes that payment processor Stripe recently made a push in the marketplace space this June, and that PayPal is a big player in this vertical as well.
