Chargebee
Well-suited:
  • In a B2B set up - Post achieving some scale and having outgrown Google Sheets/ Excels. Won't add much value if you are dealing with fewer than 400-500 invoices a year.
  • We haven't explored their B2C subscription management side - but that is one of the key strengths of the platform.

The portal is easy to understand. Anyone can use this payment gateway on their website or app. Small businesses also can use this gateway to accept payments from their customers. Payment notifications are instant and received fund gets settled in bank account without any delay. Provides less payment gateway charges for debit, credit, and prepaid cards where with UPI and rupay payment gateway charges are zero. It has a unique dashboard to monitor transaction details. Available in both web and mobile application.

Cons
Chargebee
  • It wasn't allowing us to add a one time purchase without making it an ongoing subscription with only one payment. They may have fixed it very recently but that was a big pain from a reporting perspective (it was including one time purchasers as subscribers)
  • Email automation is not very robust. Difficult to customize triggers by subscription, you have to send the same message to all subscribers for a specific action
  • Wish it had a way to write off and cancel the subscription of customers who haven't updated their cc info. That can be a long painful and very manual process. And if that feature is available somewhere they don't do a good job of making that clear.

  • One of the not so convenient things on Paytm is that if there is a connection failure while making a payment, your money is not credited directly to your bank account but rather to the Paytm Wallet, and this money can only be used by the Paytm platform.
  • In Paytm, user verification requires a personal visit to their physical offices, this can generate a lot of discomfort among potential users since if we want to use a virtual service it is precisely to encourage time saving.
  • You should be very careful when making purchases through Paytm's direct store, since in many occasions there are products of lower quality than the one offered and even fake products, it is better to use it to make payments to third parties and in considered amounts.

Usability
Chargebee
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.

I use Paytm just for the ticket booking system. For most of my daily transactions, Google Pay is the way. Google Pay has provided things very simple and faster. They always focus on a user-friendly env rather than adding everything to the app. They kept the app more simple and more useful.

Return on Investment
Chargebee
  • It was a step in the right direction compared to ReCharge
  • It had negative impacts on our revenue before we had our developers put some work into improving its capabilities with our website and software
  • Now, we are seeing some positive results (after some costly updating from our end)

  • It decreased checkout time for the user which allowed us to increase user experience.
  • Rarely, I used to face issues with transactions. If order got cancelled refunding of money, settling them etc.,
  • Since Paytm has link with UPI and I am able to collect money from any UPI applications, using credit or debit card, and internet banking it acted as single stop solution for me. There is no need to have multiple payment gateway options.
