Pros

The Customer Success team at Chargify is wonderful. You can go to them with any questions or concerns you have and if they don't know they answer, they will get one for you.

The product also takes you through a decent workflow to help streamline your billing and helps you make better decisions on things like pricing and dunning.

I really enjoy the product. The support team I have interacted with has been incredibly helpful, and have really gone out of there way with providing amazing support.

Pros

It's extremely easy to use. Should you run into any issues, their support team is amazing and very responsive.

Patrick B.

Their customer service is awesome and provides great help. However, because it is easy to use, I have not had to use their help more than once.

We've found Krish and his team to be super helpful. They were responsive and informative to our pre-sales questions and have been helpful setting us up with their system.

Cons

I also dislike that when applying existing payments to invoices, the money paid by our customer can disappear, and must be manually adjusted. There's literally no excuse for this.

Allen H.

It can be a bit difficult to set up strange payment cycles for fluctuating bills, but that's really more a problem with having non-uniform billing than anything with the software.

JM

Jonathan M.

Reporting features are horrible. Not the easiest to understand.

Cons

I've already lost over $6000 in charges I can't add to my customers' invoices and a few thousand dollars in invoices that can't be generated.

It stinks as I could not have a hosted payment portal for my customers to make payments and manage their accounts. Their software is heavily into coding and having the coding experience.

JP

Jacob P.

Now I'm told I need to batch things weekly because adding charges to my customers is too taxing on their CPUs.

Chargify

You simply need it for billing!

Reviewed 3 years ago

If you work with SaaS businesses, this service is for them

Pros

Along with my clients, we were looking for some alternatives to Chargebee and we encountered Chargify. It was like hitting the jackpot - it works wonders with recurring billing and helped us decrease churn.

Cons

You need some time for a solid onboarding, but Chargify has amazing customer support.

Chargebee

Great API Docs and Fantastic customer support

Reviewed 9 years ago

I first heard of Chargebee after doing some trial integration of both Chargify and Spreedly with our new SaaS app rocketmailmerge.com. A quick look over their API documentation and we were off to work integrating their system with our billing and customer management. Chargebee's API was very easy to integrate, it took only 1 day to get up and running on their sandbox due to their great example code....
