Appvizer's opinion

While Chargebee is undoubtedly a comprehensive and powerful solution, we have to admit that we particularly appreciate the tool's flexibility, with the ability to accept payments via alternative methods such as direct debit, e-wallets (Apple Pay, Amazon Pay), and even offline payments.

Chargebee's integrations are, in our view, the platform's greatest asset. Connecting Chargebee to popular software such as Zendesk, MailChimp, Salesforce, Hubspot, Pipedrive, Slack or Shopify centralizes operations and easily synchronizes data. This facilitates the management of customers, accounting, marketing campaigns and support processes, all from a single interface. 

In particular, this architecture offers significant advantages in terms of service reuse and resource sharing across multiple applications. By separating the business logic from the front end, we leverage common services such as Chargebee to efficiently manage access rights to paid content for different applications. This approach enables centralized management of subscriber-related functionalities, facilitating the development and maintenance of multiple platforms while optimizing costs and effort.

All this is made possible thanks to an administration interface for managing the entire product and subscriber base. You can consult, create, modify and delete the application's main entities: catalogs, customers, subscriptions, invoices, etc. The interface is intelligently designed and modern, making it more pleasant and efficient to use than other software.

Chargebee: the complete test

In our in-depth evaluation of Chargebee, we identified three features that make it a powerful and efficient subscription management tool.

Comprehensive subscription and billing cycle management 

This flagship feature is impossible to ignore!

With this tool, we have total control and, once again, great flexibility over the creation and management of our subscription plans. It's easy to define customized billing cycles according to our needs, to offer free trials, special discounts or flexible billing options.

Chargebee also makes it easy to manage subscription changes, upgrades, and cancellations. Updating our customers' subscription details requires no extra effort. This flexibility in subscription management ensures a seamless experience for our customers and enables us to adapt to their ever-changing needs. And very quickly!

Powerful integrations with CRM and accounting tools 

Chargebee is not just a powerful tool but also offers solid integrations with popular CRM and accounting tools.

Thanks to the strong integration ecosystem, we can easily synchronize data between Chargebee and our existing tools such as Salesforce, HubSpot, Sage, Zapier or Freshdesk.

This feature enables us to centralize our operations and eliminate the tedious manual tasks involved in managing subscriptions and invoicing. This means we can access all our customer and financial information in one place, facilitating informed decision-making and overall management of our business. With these powerful integrations, Chargebee offers us a complete solution to optimize our workflow and improve the efficiency of our business.

Advanced automation and rejected payment recovery

Chargebee's advanced automation and declined payment recovery are effective features. With them, we can maximize our sales by reducing missed payments and growing our cash flow.

Chargebee offers intelligent automated attempts to recover refused payments. The solution uses well-designed dunning strategies to recover missed payments, maximizing revenue with no extra (hands-on) effort. This advanced automation frees you from the burden of manual management of declined payments, allowing you to concentrate on more important tasks.

What's more, Chargebee offers integrated dashboards to monitor the status of our payments and subscriptions in real-time. We view information on sales, conversion rates, subscription plan performance and more. This analytical data helps us make the right decisions and adjust our sales strategy in line with customer trends and needs.
