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

It's an enjoyable team to work with - they are very responsive and helpful, and helped us really find the best way to use the features.
Breadth of features suits our business. Super responsive and great personalized support.
We can now use those resources for selling. Great team, awesome support = so happy.

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

They'll have the wrong prices when we re-activate them. Instructions on the custom code to update our subscriptions were given to us 13 days after asking for instructions on changing prices.
That we didn't find them earlier and wasted so much time lookng at their competitors.
We never thought that price changes would be a missing feature for a recurring billing system.

Recurly

Saves us tons of developer time

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Recurly is really easy and functional. If you need to bill customers every month and don't want to build it yourself, recurly fits the bill

Cons

They take a large cut of billings that we run through the platform. We are looking to transition away as a result.

Recurly is the most user friendly subscription UI on the market

Reviewed 3 years ago

Recurly is the best solution for companies with a handful of products to scale. If you are using the admin UI to do billing like I am it is a very clear tool to implement and use day-to-day.

Pros

I love the flexibility in setting up subscriptions: future start, bill forward, automatic, % or $ discounts. Recurly makes it easy and does exception handling well.

Cons

Slow to roll out new features. Sometimes you set up multiple subscriptions to fire out at the same time, but they will send separately. For some reason Recurly only let's you choose the HOUR (in UTC) that a subscription occurs at, but Recurly sometimes changes the MINUTE. Very frustrating as an admin to manage that somewhat confusing anomaly.

Disappointing customer support

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

decent interface. good integration functionality although this breaks every so often.

Cons

Customer service was disappointing at best. Charged us thousands of dollars for collecting on a single bill. We flagged this to them multiple times but got passed around 5 different customer support people and eventually told us that they wouldn't entertain our request. We have been a customer of theirs for over three years and its so disappointing to feel ripped off this way.
