Chargify works!

Reviewed a year ago

Chargify allowed us to streamline our payments and reporting, clearing up time for developing our business

Pros

This software is easy to use and easy to implement. Once everything is set up, its incredibly simple to search for clients by company name or name etc. and the same goes for viewing and editing customers.

Cons

No complaints, even their support was great.

Chargify is great for managing subscriptions

Reviewed 2 years ago

Over all experience is great!

Pros

It keeps all account's details separated by sections which makes it easier for the users to find out specific data from customers. We have 5 processors and they all work with Chargify which is amazing. We don't need more software or do more work to manage the billing. You can manage the access given all users which is great.

Cons

It would be great if we could integrate all subscriptions from different processors in just one Chargify account.

Great software!

Reviewed a year ago

Automating billing is key to our business right now. I am still doing manual billings daily. The functionalities available are exactly what we need. Furthermore, the reporting functions are fantastic.

Pros

Ease of use and customer support. I also love the reporting metrics.

Cons

Customization can be challenging and often time the workarounds are correct/ sustainable.

Chargify review

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The option to rebill customers monthly. It was also very affordable for us when we first started the business and our customer support team is able to easily navigate and learn the platform.

Cons

Our customers frequently complain about the billing portal. However, we are working on our own solution for this.

Subscription billing made easy

Reviewed a year ago

Clean, clear, and under control

Pros

Intuitive user interface and overall design, with a complete solution for my needs.

Cons

Maybe that there aren't as many safety prompts for administrators who make mistakes selecting 'yes' to things too quickly. A few "are you sure?" dialogue boxes would do those admins a bit of good I think.

Too Expensive for what they deliver

Reviewed a year ago

It has served it's purpose for being a quick start for recurring billing, but the cost is too great to be a long term solution. The team are great and super responsive in answering my questions asap.

Pros

The advanced recurring billing options for stacking (or not) coupons and discounts, ability to grandfather pricing, and the support team are fantastic.

Cons

Every plan is a new subscription to be manually created. We use their hosted signup form and have to create 1:1 for every product in the catalog - too hard. Can't customise the css of the statement.

Great for B2C products, not great yet for B2B

Reviewed a year ago

Great for B2C products, not great yet for B2B

Pros

Simple to set up, easy to manage sign up pages, and automated dunning works well.

Cons

Until recently there was no revenue recognition. The main ledger is a merge of all different types of data so it's hard to use. We moved away because our use case has customers not activated simultaneously with the payment (manual activation is required) which is common in B2B and that is just not supported well.

Good program

Reviewed a year ago

We are able to receive payments online very easily and cleanly

Pros

This program is extremely easy to use and setup and met most all of our needs in running credit cards for our customer base

Cons

No integration to our current crm which forces us to manually apply the payments to the accounts.

Helpful but could be a little more flexible

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Easy to get an overview of our client's subscription plan and payment options. Makes invoicing process much easier for us.

Cons

Could be a little more flexible. For exemple, some clients with overdue payments call us to notify that they sent us a cheque. But we can't switch Payment method from Automatic to Invoicing until they pay by credit card.

When everything is going crazy on an account, this is a safe place to actually know what is going on with the money. This place always tells the "truth" about whats going on.

Cons

It takes a while to fully learn. I've been using it for over 2 years and i still 2nd guess myself.

Chargify is the best known way to go about subscription box services

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Managing a multitude of subscription box billing and renewals become very doable through Chargify. It is also a good way to track revenue on a monthly basis.

Cons

This isn't necessarily built for subscription box services so there sometimes it can take a decent amount of time to get what we need from this software.

A Great Experience

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

The sales process and the setup process were both so great. I felt very well taken care of by, especially by my on-boarding specialist, Kayla. She took me through a very stressful transition (let's be honest, money and technology can stress a person out) and made it smooth and easy. I'm very happy to be on track and using the system now. And I love it! I went with Chargify because it seemed like the only system that would allow me to both charge clients cards automatically, but also send invoices to those clients that need to pay by check, ACH or wire transfer. We have a lot of international clients, so this was imperative for us.

Cons

There are a few places that improvements could be made, but they are minor and the staff seem very open to hearing comments. I do wish we could go back and edit invoices that have already been created. But I understand the reasoning behind it. I would also like to see more advanced/flexible reporting.

Support is so helpful!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Thanks to Chargify we are not limited to just one way of working. Being able to use the webhooks and API's are going to come in handy and allow us to create an eco-system for our customers. We have be able to move away from the standard systems that our customers industry uses, this excites them and us.

Pros

I love how I can make Chargify do whatever I need for my company to succeed. If we need something in particular, so far Chargify has been able to do it. The Support team are so friendly and easy to communicate with, they are helpful and always have a solution.

Cons

I look forward to when Chargify offer more renewal EDM options.

Recurring billing using Chargify

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Solid platform that is helping us increase revenue through automation and decrease dunning loss.

Cons

The analytics could be more adjustable for us to run reports instead of exporting and creating a report outside of Chargify. Getting better as they work on it though.

Chargify Rocks!

Reviewed 2 years ago

They are the shopping cart of choice for me

Pros

Great price, excellent customer service and excellent functionality.

Cons

The receipts aren't ideal for showing UK VAT reporting and take a fair bit of complex configuration. With time their development team will fix this I'm sure.

Intuitive

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Chargify is easy to use straight out of the box and most activities are intuitive. I like that you are able to give users different levels of access and the reporting is very robust. Their customer service is top-notch!

Cons

Most payment software provides the user id for transactions and Chargify currently doesnt have this feature. We have multiple people across different sites processing transactions and it is hard to keep track of who does what.

Software that does not disappoint

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

For me, as a QA in company it's easy to use. Honestly, we didn't even once have problems with it. It just works.

Cons

I heard from those who configure it, it was not really easy to do it but if you did in once, that's done and you can forget about it.

Works well!

Reviewed a year ago

Overall, Chargify works well for us and gets the job done.

Pros

So much of Chargify is automated. It's so nice to use a software that allows you to "set it and forget it".

Cons

There are some features we'd like Chargify to have that it does not offer.
