Hi I have magento 1.9.3 installed.
There is a lot of mention about braintree payments settings in magento however I cannot see those in my magento admin panel under payment methods.
Can you please help how I can install braintree
Braintree is included on Magento 2.
The only module that I've found for Magento 1 is http://www.gene.co.uk/braintree-payments/
(But you should perform your own research, I didn't use it so this isn't a recomendation)
Maybe I've missed something. Can you share one of those links?
You might be looking Braintree Configuration page. This url is for Magento Enterprise Edition, if you search Braintree in following link Magento_Community_Edition_User_Guide no search result comes for Braintree.
Braintree is available for EE edition in Magento1.
