Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I can really only speak to my own experience which is with the software subscription model and 2Checkout seems tailor-made for this purpose. However based on what I've seen it seems like it would work equally well if you were selling physical products. They do have quite a lot of flexibility around creating promotions for products.

Cons

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 is surreal. Everything feels like they don't really want you to use them. I had to beg them to approve my account because of stupid approval questions. Example: give ONE url where payments will come from. (my payments will come from a page inside my webapp which means absolutely nothing to users who don't have a user in my webapp. I also have many URLs where the users can pay from) Then their API is super complicated to use. I couldn't believe how complicated it is. It is not well explained in the documentation and you have to guess until you understand the underlying logic. I wouldn't use it if I Stripe was available in my country.

They are willing to help with most challenges and are pretty easy to get ahold of by phone. They are limited in their reach, when it comes to bulk cancellations, along with some other bulk edits. It is no fault to them, Chargify is just a system that hasn’t been upgraded much over the years.

I used to sell my software on Avangate and PayPal at the same time. Costs were very similar but I decided to abandon PayPal because it sometimes required human interventions. I also checked DigitalRiver, but it wasn't easy to setup and I never completed all requirements.

Return on Investment

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.

  • Avangate gives a quality service as a payment gateway
  • Their pricing plan is helpful for business growth
  • Avangate provides the trust to the customer to buy products from the store as a leading payment gateway
