I have tried Stripe, PayPal, BrainTree, Square, and many other payment gateways. They all either had high fees, or were buggy and unreliable. After 6 months of using GoDaddy payments, I have not had a single issue and the fees are reasonable, better than most! I am confident enough with this plugin that I have now started to recommend it to clients over any of the options I mentioned above. My only complaint, I wish GoDaddy would make a plugin for Paid Memberships Pro, MemberPress and maybe even a stand-alone plugin!

For some reason, the website stopped processing credit cards as of last night. Poynt is throwing an error and will not show cc input fields. I reset the API key but that didn’t help. It’s their plugin that’s throwing the error. Their chat support says they cannot support website integration and says I have to contact their dev team. He cannot confirm if they work on weekends or how long it will take to get support. It’s Saturday morning and a holiday weekend with Monday off. He cannot confirm if they’re off on Monday. We ran a bunch of paid ads for this holiday weekend and the payment processing is totally down. This is a joke of a company. Use literally any other company. STAY AWAY!
