Braintree in Switzerland?

This seems a bit of a ridiculous request, but I need to find out if Braintree.com ( a payment gateway) is operational in Switzerland.

You'd think I could just google it, or visit their site...but no. the clever folks at Braintree have created a site that picks up that i am in SAfrica, where Braintree is NOT operational, and I cannot get " into" the actual site.

I know a VPn would help, but mine is not accessible to me right now.

Anyway, just a yes/ no from anyone who would be kind enough to access the Braintree.com site and tell me if Switzerland is supported.

Many thanks,

Well I can access the site, but it doesn't look like a "payment gateway" company. No mention on the site if they operate in CH.

Re: Braintree in Switzerland?

It's accessible from Switzerland, and it has a little Swiss flag at the bottom, so that looks promising.

From FAQ
Quote:
Is Braintree available in my country?

Braintree is available for merchants in the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia and New Zealand. In legal terms, you have to be domiciled in a supported country.

We are working hard to bring Braintree to other countries. If you would like to be notified when Braintree is available in your country, join the mailing list.

What does it mean to be “domiciled” in the United States, Europe, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia or New Zealand?

Your business must operate out of a US, Canadian, Australian, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand-based office. You must also have a bank account with a US, European, Australian, Canadian, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia or New Zealand-chartered bank. The location of your customers has no affect on where you are domiciled.
I have the world's slowest internet connection, so I can't tell you much more than that, sorry.

E.T.A. - Pricing is in CHF, so that definitely looks as though it'll work in Switzerland,

@grumpygrapefruit My apologies. I gave the wrong URL!

@mirfield many thanks! That's all I needed to know.
