Active Merchant or Payment module?

Which do you guys prefer for credit card processing?

Both look like they get the job done. – Is there any consensus on which
one is better? Are there other credit card processing solutions I’m not
aware of? Any thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome.

Thanks!

I’ve never used the Payment module.

I needed to add CC processing to my site about three months ago. Gave
AM a shot, but wasn’t really able to get it working. The
documentation doesn’t actually match up with the library itself, so
don’t count on that. Next stop was to look at the unit tests to see
how it should be used…unfortunately those don’t pass. So there’s no
real example of how you should use it.

There are lots of little inconsistencies in it. I can’t remember the
specifics off the top of my head, but one of them had to do with how
names were supposed to be set and used on the credit card.

Apparently Shopify uses it in production, so perhaps I’m just stupid
or something. In the end though, I just wrote my own library, using a
ton of code from AM. Be prepared to spends lots of time with it
though if you use it out of the box.

depends which vendor you need to use for processing. i had to use
Verisign,
so AM wouldn’t work. i haven’ tried Payment, but I found this:
http://www.livemetric.com/opensource/pfpro4r and

which helped me get started in writing a class to deal with Verisign.
