Chargebee

It's great for an early stage startup who doesn't have the resources to build in all of the subscription management features they need. It has a great free tier that makes it very accessible to a young startup. It's also great for a growing startup but it may not be the best fit for a more mature startup with the resources and need to build something a bit more custom.

Chargify

If you are a small startup, likely to be charging only in one currency, then Chargify will likely be suitable for you, as it was for us when we first started. However, as you expand and need to charge in additional currencies and require good reporting, you might find Chargify becomes more cumbersome. You do get a very stable and reliable billing platform with Chargify. I can't recall any downtime dues to issues. In the last 5 years, there have been only been 2 times where the app was down, both for scheduled maintenance. The communication leading up to the downtime was excellent, the app was up and running well within the maintenance window and everything kept functioning smoothly afterward.

  • Chargify listens to its customer base and their suggestions for feature enhancements.

Cons

Chargebee

  • One area that is difficult is that I don't have an easy way to allow users to select their own plan options. I have monthly and yearly plans, but no way to let the customer choose (not without custom code). This is the one thing that has caused extra work for me.
  • Configuring additional custom fields in the checkout form is possible, but not very intuitive.

Chargify

  • Reporting - It doesn't provide the reporting we need so I have to do it manually. It doesn't track individual components like we need it to for monthly reporting.
  • Emails - The system's emails sometimes end up in junk mail, so I also follow up once a customer has missed 2 payment attempts.
  • Transactions - An easier way to get to the transactions would be nice. It takes many clicks to see the transaction history.

They are a crucial piece of what we do. We hope to have them as a vendor for a long time to come.

It's very easy to use once you know what you're doing. I found it very straight forward once I got the hang of things and was able to create plans easily for my business. I was also able to just charge my clients right away easily. Refunding was also easy when needed.

Anytime I've contacted them with a question, they've responded quickly and with the information needed. It never took me too long to get an answer and be able to solve my problem. They have always been super nice and are easy to get a hold of. The "Start a Chat" feature is not intrusive and easy to start.

Alternatives Considered

Chargebee

A strong balance between flexibility and simplicity -- Chargebee has proved to be a product that is well liked across the organization, and from a technical standpoint does not present too many hiccups for our developers. We also feel the pricepoint is good in a market which often has very taxing pricing structures
Dailius Wilson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Chargify

We evaluated several recurring billing services - but Chargify was the only one we found that supported our current merchant portal. They had the widest selection of merchant portals - and the most competitive service fees.

Return on Investment

Chargebee

  • Does not work towards an ROI angle but is super helpful in terms of tracking and is really important to have a system like Chargebee in place.
Nivas Ravichandran | TrustRadius Reviewer

Chargify

  • The positive impact was mostly when we actually did need subscriptions. The negative impact came when we pivoted to a more focused type of product, which did not need user subscriptions. Because we were reusing the code and had already done all the setup (and had a skeleton crew), we stayed with Chargify, but many times it got in the way. Had we continued as a business, we would have switched to just using Braintree.
