What is Paddle?
A platform that takes makes it incredibly simple to sell apps, games and other digital products. We think that creators should be allowed to focus on building awesome products, so we handle all of the boring things like payments, analytics, customer support and VAT so that they can do just that. Using Paddle's software development kits, developers can easily set up trial versions, licensing mechanisms, in-app purchases and even track performance & usage with Paddle’s in-app analytics technology -- all under a single dashboard.
Paddle is a tool in the Payment Services category of a tech stack.

Decisions about Paddle
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Paddle in their tech stack.
Stripe or Paddle for payment processing for SaaS?
we used Stripe + Chargebee once and will NEVER use them again (they charge too much (300usd/month while offering way fewer integrations than Stripe)
Furthermore, Chargebee doesn't support managing disputes. We still need to go to stripe for that.
