Decisions about Chargebee, Recurly, and Zuora
Kilian Stallinger

Stripe is very well known for its developer experience and great documentation. We considered Recurly and other tools because of the easy tax-automations and subscription handling.

But lately Stripe introduces its own tax-handling feature, and it was just a perfect match for our usecase. Also we are migrating some of our billing to a Pay-per-Use system, wich Stripe supports very well.

Not only is ReCharge more interoperable with Shopify services and apps, thereby reducing the amount of work required to implement it, but it's also more cost-effective than ChargeBee.

At least with regard to handling physical products, I find ReCharge to be superior and cleaner. Their customer service is kinder AND they even let you try them out for the first $100k worth of recurring revenue, so you can really get a feel for whether or not it will be a good tool for your organization in the long run.

If you use Shopify, sell physical goods, and have complex subscription needs, ya can't go wrong with ReCharge. Plus, the cost is reasonable, so give it a go!

If you're in the SaaS business, ChargeBee may be more appropriate though.
