    Cleverbridge is well-suited for big companies that have a client base and want to start online. If you have a wide range of products, and you sell worldwide--where different languages and different settings are needed for each region--then Cleverbridge is good solution. If you just want to start selling with limited stock and with couple of product types only in one region, then it's not good idea to begin with Cleverbridge.

    FastSpring

    FastSpring will be well suited for a company that needs simple checkout solution. As a bonus, you'll get a nice checkout flow. If you're a company that doesn't have the time to concentrate and becomes an expert in data security, currency conversion, global tax management, or fraud detection – this will be a great fit. It's appropriate for anyone who doesn't want to waste time on managing support for their e-commerce business.

    Cons

    cleverbridge

    • Because of the many different settings, it becomes hard sometimes to set everything up
    • The slow system can take up to 10 seconds to save something
    Madina Mukhamedova | TrustRadius Reviewer

    FastSpring

    • FastSpring uses 2 separate GUIs for store owners. Some features work with one GUI implementation and not the other one.
    • Some other providers do provide lower credit card processing fees, compared with FastSpring. But I have been very happy dealing with FastSpring overall in terms of support and overall usability - so I am happy to continue using FastSpring. If I was selling 10x or 100x my current sales volume, I might consider a change, but I have no plans to change at the present time.

    Usability

    Based on 1 answer
    Usability is native, but the system is complex. It has a knowledge base, but who reads that, right? So without explanation, sometimes it's hard to understand how to move and set things. But as soon as you get it, it's not a problem anymore. There are 2 major things, which keeps me from giving a higher score: 1 - Delay in time when making changes; can take up to 2 sec when opening a product, and 10 secs when saving a product update. When you do several updates, it is time consuming; 2 - A lot of settings, which also in the end becomes time consuming.

    DR Waco e screwed up the company when we worked with them - they didn’t like customers - I know that sounds odd but it was true and their software was dreadful

    FastSpring

    I have been using FastSpring consistently for the past nine years, and I cannot now recall what other products I considered when I selected FastSpring. I am not currently aware of any other company that would handle my type of business any better than FastSpring.

    Return on Investment

    cleverbridge

    • We couldn’t have done this on our own
    • They provided cost-effective eCommerce for us
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    FastSpring

    • Now that we've turned to FastSpring for our e-Commerce needs, we have saved so much money since they take their fees out at POS instead of charging us out of pocket on a monthly basis.
