Shoresh Shafei, Justin Benson and Luke Evans A Spreedly customer, unsatisfied with the support they were receiving from their existing gateway, was considering migrating to a new provider. To make sure that the performance of the new gateway was comparable to the one already in use, they asked Spreedly to help by analyzing our data and comparing the two gateway performances. When it comes to choosing the right gateway, Spreedly is encouraging merchants to consider […]
One of the most important, if not unsettling, principles in security is that there is no such thing as absolute security. Given enough time and resources, all security measures can be bypassed. Look no further than the Snowden revelations which exposed the degree to which a variety of technologies previously thought to be secure had, in fact, already been compromised.

Today, we’re happy to announce the beta release of PMD batch export, which lets you send multiple cards in a single call to third party endpoints via SFTP. Ever since the release of PMD, this has been a commonly requested feature, […]
Shoresh Shafei, Justin Benson & Nathaniel Talbott We are excited to start mining Spreedly’s data – we have quite a lot of it – to surface interesting insights, trends, and if possible actionable results for merchants, payment gateways, and even consumers. While perhaps not as flashy as data science at a dating company, it should be safer to read at work, and we suspect there are a lot of kindred souls that find payments data […]
One of our customers, RevolutionParts, has a nice post on migrating to Spreedly. Many of our customers are implementing a new payments service. RevolutionParts were different in that they were already with another provider and needing to make a change. You can read the post over at their site if you’re interested in learning more. This would be most applicable if you sell a SaaS based service into a group of diverse merchants.
