Metanga is easy for automating recurring billing and it has quite a nice trusted API platform but, one time payments require workarounds. Metanaga is well suited for customizing subscriptions and payments.

I think it works best for scenarios where it involves recurring billing. A subscription-based business model can benefit on the platform and maximize its features. It has great customization when it comes to billing cadence, pricing, prepayment, discount options, among others. It also works perfectly with one-off charges so either way, it's a win. It has great integration with Stripe too.
Read full review Pros Easy functionality integration with other financial systems. We were able to integrate it with CRM programs and that helped in expediting the subscription services. Rich API features and proper documentation helped a lot. Read full review It is very easy to track MRR, which gives you insights into your overall revenues and health of the subscriptions. Though MRR is pretty easy to calculate Recurly puts it beautifully on the dashboard which is very easy to read. LTV, Recurly calculates lifetime value which is a good insight for adjusting Marketing spends. Even this is available on the dashboard. The other features like Subscriber churn Rate, Average revenue per customer etc are really great and would help the marketing team a lot. Read full review Cons Pricing model could be more competitive with similar services. If we wanted to use one time payment, it required lot of hassle and workaround. Read full review The coupons feature is a bit cumbersome. It can become tricky to set up, apply, and un-apply coupons for a particular client. If you have special billing cases where you discount for a few months or give a client service in any irregular fashion, using coupons can become tricky. We have a referral program with our clients where they receive a perpetual monthly discount for each client they refer to use. The client receives this discount as long as their referral remains active with us. We would like to be able to apply a discount to a client account, and have the ability to remove that discount in the event a referral ends service with us. In some cases a client has referred several clients, and we would like to apply a discount for each referral, and still have the ability to remove one or more discounts as referrals begin and end service with us. Currently there is no way to do this in Recurly. There isn't even a very good work-around, which is disappointing. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I believe we would continue to use Recurly because they have shown that they are continually improving their software, and they listen to their customers

They have always been quick to respond and help. I love their chat feature at the bottom right-hand corner of the platform.

It has a clean and simple interface. [There are] automatic notifications for failed transactions. The easy integration with Intacct, Netsuite, QuickBooks, SOFTRAX and other financial systems to extend functionality made us choose Metanga over

Fewer codings are needed, however, the simplicity with Recurly is found once all the information needed is there. I have seen where Recurly is integrated with any other product we use; however,
does have the ability to be integrated with other products. This is done through coding.

Self-service portals for customers to manage their own information and accounts helped build good client relations and interactions. Read full review Providing an interface for our subscribers to manage their own accounts has simplified our business tremendously. This alone has freed up hours of our staff's time each day. Many customers receive new credit cards due to expiration or fraud. The time we spent in updating this information prior to using Recurly's Revenue Recovery feature versus now is significant.
