Reviews of Trolley
PR supported us through many transitions and every step of the way
Comments: Overall, our experience has been great. The team is responsive and supportive to our many demands and questions. They're knowledgable and always eager to help. They've updated things and helped us address issues. Great group of folks that go above and beyond to help us get started - I highly recommend their services.
Payment rails makes payments easy with a robust API that works across borders. They also handle tax compliance and have a knowledgable team that's always ready to help. They've helped us multiple times throughout the two years we've been working together. We went from being a customer (and a demanding one!) to a partner who's constantly referring leads. It's been a long ride but PR really stuck with us and helped us through thick and thin. Work with them if you have a chance!
Compliance but it's really not their fault. Financial services is a regulated industry. PR did what they could but compliance requirements are unique by industry. If anything, we're very grateful to PR for helping us through the legal whenever possible.
Comments: When we started using Payment Rails we were experiencing a huge business problem. The sellers on our platform were unable to redeem their funds in a timely manner. Other options were either too costly or they took too much time and hassle to setup. At that moment we had to manually process all transactions at the end of the day which was extremely unscalable. With Payment Rails, we were up and running within literally 2 days. It was so easy to setup and the flow was perfect for us. The team helped us get up and running responding to questions within the hour. We are very excited to continue using Payment Rails.
Payment Rails is amazingly easy to use, and extremely quick to setup. Further more the team is incredible and have always been available to help out with any issues.
This software feels like it was built for us. We don't have any concerns about it.
Advance API for payouts
Trolley has unique API that enable development of internal payout management system for companies.
Trolley needs to have a better API documentation for development of mobile based payout management apps.
Payment Rails Beatchain
What we liked the most is the ease of use of their APIs and specially their widgets which are super easy to integrate with and set up.
The documentation could use some improvements. It would have helped to have some more higher order docs around payment and recipient status and the different possible flows that we could encounter. The webhooks portal could also use some improvements like a more granular selection of events to listen to, a UI to be able to test the different webhooks that can be trigger and its payloads, and some reporting tools to be able to monitor them.
Comments: Our experience with Payment Rails has been 100% positive and I would recommend the platform to anyone looking to process international payments at scale.
Payment Rails has a UI which is very easy to use if you are doing manual payments within the Payment Rails platform, but they also have a fantastic API which we were able to integrate into our proprietary platform so we can make payments without our existing workflow. Everything else has been super easy because of the rep and their commitment to providing a high-quality level of service (and that has been from the first demo through to our daily use as current customers - the service has been very impressive).
I have been informed that Payment Rails is working to solve this problem, but you currently have to maintain a balance in your account, and it takes approximately 5 business days to process a direct-debit. So when you are doing large volumes of transactions, you have to keep topping up your account with direct-debits that are on a 5-day lag (you can do a wire transfer, but incur higher costs as a result).
