"Easy setup, great customer service"

What do you like best?

Ease of setup. I am a novice at coding for web design and integrating this with our web site was simple for me.

What do you dislike?

Some of the advanced features, like billing future renewals early, are disabled during the free trial period so we would have to do this manually through our processing company the few times we needed to.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding an easy to use, affordable platform for billing monthly plans through our web site was not easy. We have used other software and web services but nothing has been as simple and complete as Chargebee.

"Simple Invoicing Solution"

What do you like best?

The UI is very easily laid out that you can find things quickly and easily. Their customer service team is wonderful and helpful.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, I haven't found anything that I dislike about the product but will definitely update with something once I do.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a simple solution to set up your customers with auto-invoicing, this is what you need.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have customers that want to see their invoices prior to paying so we can set that up that it auto sends the message. Also, we don't have to do anything for customers that don't require that. The payment is automatically deducted each month by their payment method.

"Awesome and Easy yo Use"

What do you like best?

Chargebee is a comprehensive, user friendly, powerful tool. Especially if you're looking for all in one, no-code solution, Chargebee is probably the best. The customer service is also excellent, and their "startup plan", where you're basically given access for free, up to 50k in revenue, was just what we needed to kickstart our business. We've been using it extensively for 6 months now - couldn't be happier.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, so far I haven't found anything that I really dislike or find off putting when using Chargebee. There are always details that we would like to see improved, but I'm talking about really picky stuff, nothing major that hinders its purpose and quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Chargebee is a simple tool but setting it up takes some time as there are a series of powerful features that you shouldn't rush through (multi currency, advanced notifications, invoices, quotes, etc. etc.). Nowadays we're expecting setups to take something like 30 seconds...and you could do that with Chargebee, but you'd be missing out.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For us, Chargebee is an affordable, easy to use, subscription management platform. We needed something that could provide a simple yet clear customer experience. We also wanted to give our customer some form of control over their subscriptions (which Chargebee does) and we wanted a tool that, if needed, could be use by anyone in the team. That's it.

"Great tool for managing financial information"

What do you like best?

Chargebee is very easy to use, it's has a lot of functionalities which I really like. And they have great support.

What do you dislike?

I feel that they need to improve their API documentation and have more api capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's great tool, you should definitely give it a try!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking all financial information, generation of invoices and creating accurate reports.

"Chargebee integration and support has been excellent for Roveel"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and support has been the best.

What do you dislike?

The initial sales process almost put us off with various offers and incentives, however we have now built the trust and want to continue to work with Chargebee.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Invoicing our SAAS business customers directly and automating the payment collections. We have saved time from preparing the invoices manually.

"A fantastic tool"

What do you like best?

Super useful and fast! They have also a cool startup program, they permit to you use Chargebee for free to try it. After that the price is super honest.

I love also the user experience, it is super simple to manage and you can also edit the email. You can edit more or a less all the parts.

What do you dislike?

Almost nothing! They could add the possibility to export data in pdf, because at the moment you can only export your data in csv. Sometimes business consultant need something more simple to read.

I suggest to update the limit for a startup to use it for free and verify if the startup as a scalable business. They could provide a better service and support to a limited number of startups that really need it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have centralized my subscription. indipendently the tool they use to pay me. I can easily manage all my clients and subscrption and they atomatize also the mail process. It is integrated with a lot of CRM, and this is so helpful to align the database.

"Great Billing Middleware for SAAS businesses"

What do you like best?

Documentation & Support, API integration was very easy and straight forward

What do you dislike?

Lack of customization available for checkout screen/checkout popups Need more customization options

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great platform if you are looking to implement subscription management for your product, They have fairly good support even for starting plans + the webhooks & API integration is really well done along with documentation.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are a subscription-based SAAS business and relying on one payment gateway for all our needs didn't feel right especially if we had to move away and migrate to some other in the future so we decided to go with Chargebee. We are confident we can move around and be compliant with payment partners & won't lose any sort of user data.
