Web application performance monitoring company New Relic has published an interesting infographic on payment gateway performance. New Relic pulled the data from all their customers that called an external payment gateway during the 20th of April 2012. The data derived from more than 100,000 total gateway calls. In New Relic’s sample PayPal was the most popular provider, accounting for nearly 60% of all transactions followed by Authorize.Net, USA ePay and Stripe. Google Checkout came in 5th but turned out to being the fastest gateway. Enjoy!
