How does this compare to Stripe, Chargify, and others @prayanks?
@rrhoover @prayanks It is now 2 years since the product was added here and I had a deeper look into Chargebee as a customer. I compared them with Chargify and many similar invoicing solutions which work on top of Stripe. Generally, they take care for all about billing, from collection credit card details to generating and sending invoices and handling plan updates (which is very complicated!). For me the 2 big USPs of Chargebee are: 1. that they get the very complex topic of international VAT taxation right. They detect European VAT per country, support VAT ID for exemption, etc. If you would do that manually you would need an accountant. No other invoicing solution on top of Stripe offers that. 2. you get a fully customizable customer portal for free where your customers can edit their plans, update their credit cards, etc. In general, it seems that with Chargebee you get a full SaaS payment & invoicing solutions with no or very little coding πŸ‘

ChargeBee is an abstraction layer on top of Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.Net etc., but more sophisticated for recurring billing needs. Similar to Stripe with the way REST API is designed. Similar to Chargify in lot of ways as a solution. Lot of things ChargeBee deliver that makes it flexible - different in the way they deliver custom SaaS Metrics ($249+ plan), non-card payments (invoice billing), custom fields & custom domain support etc. It is an up & coming solution focused on all kinds of recurring use cases.

Xara choose ChargeBee after a pretty deep comparison analysis. Ultimately our requirements and friendly entry pricing won them the deal. We have scaled with them since.
