To accept payments on updown.io, we first added support for Stripe which is by far the most popular payment gateway for startups and for a good reason. Their service is of awesome quality: the UI is gorgeous, the integration is easy, the documentation is great, the API is super stable and well thought. I can't recommend it enough.

We then added support for PayPal which is pretty popular for people who have money on it and don't know where to spend it (it can make it feel like you're spending less when it comes from PayPal wallet), or for people who prefer not to enter a credit card on a new website. This was pretty well received and we're currently receiving about 25% of our purchases from PayPal. The documentation and integration is much more painful than with Stripe IMO, I can't recommend them for that, but not having it is basically dodging potential sales.

Finally we more recently added support of BitPay for #Bitcoin and BitcoinCash payments, which was a pretty easy process but not worth the time in the end due to the low usage and the always changing conditions of the network: the transaction fees got huge after price raise and bitcoin because unusable for small payments, they then introduced support for BCH and a newer Bitcoin protocol for lower fees, but then you need a special wallet to pay and in the end it's too cumbersome, even for bitcoin users, to pay with it. I think unless you expect a bit number of payments using cryptocurrencies it's not worth implementing this solution, and better to accept them manually.

    #Billing
    #Business

    Gonna talk about the #business side a bit by chiming in on our decision for a #billing software with Livestorm. Like many (all? :p) SaaS softwares out there, we're accepting most payments as a subscription via Stripe & credit card. While implementing it in 2016 and accepting our first payments, we soon realized that some customers needed other ways of payments and some had specific needs when it comes to invoices. We also needed ways to create coupons, offer refunds, find delinquent payments etc. Finally, we also wanted an easy way to measure our business metrics (number of customers, MRR, churn etc), even if there are other dedicated solutions for it. So that's how we ended up choosing Chargebee. Chargebee helps us be more flexible and quick to react to customers' needs. Everything can be done by our CS people without any dev time. We're in the process of updating our billing system, and although it's a big project, Chargebee's doc makes it as painless as possible.

    #Paymentgatewayintegration

    Running a subscription service with just direct calls to Stripe or similar payment gateways is possible but also needs dedicated person(s) for decent amount of development and maintenance.

    Plus features like updating card details, invoice history - all these can be built. Again, more dev work and resources.

    Use of subscription platform like Chargebee or Recurly is definitely a great help here.

    Chargebee offered a simple pay-as-you-go transparent pricing and almost trivial signup process.
