Paddle

We feel that Paddle is well suited in any software offering that requires an in-app purchase flow or a custom built subscription model. It's ease of set up and low overhead make it particularly attractive to small and medium businesses and software vendors that manage multiple products with a similar purchase pipeline.In very large platform scenarios, a fully custom solution might provide more flexibility since direct integration with the underlying payment processor can be built in-house. With this of course comes the cost of initial engineering and maintenance.

Alternatives Considered

Paddle

Paddle has better customer experience than other offerings in its class. Provides a low overhead and quick setup solution when compared to direct Stripe integration. It is competitive on rates with other offerings and when features like frontline support, abandoned cart recovery, and user suggestions are factored into their offering, their rates are more than competitive.
