Pros

While the features and ease of use are great, I'm most impressed with their customer service and ability to answer each question my team or I have quickly and thoroughly.
The software is good, the API and connetivity is good, the new catalog upgrade will be very helpful for us. And the support team is EXCELLENT.
The ability to set recurring billing on automation is great and easy to set up. Plus their customers service team is awesome and always their when you need them.

Pros

They are super friendly and provide the help or the answer you need in a short time. They will even give you suggestions and recommendations of what you should do get where you want to be.
Responsive team and the tutorials can make a novice like me turn out some good integrations.
I am loving the product so far. Our business revolves around a subscription model for recurring revenue and their product is perfect for helping me get my business running right away.

Cons

Very frustrating as an admin to manage that somewhat confusing anomaly.
Charged us thousands of dollars for collecting on a single bill.
At my previous company, we used an ancient subscription management tool that worked but was very painful to use at every step.

Cons

The only thing I don't like is that there is no option to setup a discount code for my products. I'm not too concerned though as I've been told this feature will happen soon.
Some features are missing but they are already planned.
I was missing the white label option but they are already looking into it.

Billsby

Perfect partner for SaaS companies or any business with recurring billing

Reviewed 3 years ago

We selected Billsby after evaluating a few competing solutions for recurring billing (including recurly, chargify, chargebee, and moonclerk). They offered the most competitive total cost for a startup of our size, and we've been very impressed by the level of support and personal attention to make the platform meet all of our needs when it comes to billing for our product.

Pros

- It was very easy to integrate the billsby checkout and customer self service widgets into our website in application. Within a few days of signing up, we had a functional prototype of the signup flow and a link in our application for customers to edit billing settings etc. - The product is still in beta but is already pretty advanced, with built in dunning (chasing after customers with expired cards)...

Cons

- As I mentioned, there are still some features that are in development (e.g. discount code functionality) but their team shared this is coming soon on the roadmap.

Vendor response

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback Jake. Discounts are coming very soon - and there are lots of other exciting features in the pipeline too. I think add-ons and metered allowances will be very useful for your business.
