Chargify is a subscription based invoicing platform for SMBs. With it you can automatically send invoices individually or on recurring basis. It comes with some handy tools and features, such as letting you create an order page for customers to sign up for your product or service, and then manage their own subscription.
Chargify has lots of standard reports to choose from. The reporting feature is accessed from your dashboard. From here, you can see an overview of subscribers added/lost and the monthly revenue. From the ‘Analytics page, you can locate over 20 reports on various data points, including website activity, signup success/failure, upgrades and downgrades, expiring credit cards, and metered usage etc. It is worth noting that Chargify doesn’t allow you to build build custom reports from the ground up.
Chargify integrates with over 300 apps via a 3rd party integration service called Zapier. The service lets you automatically synchronize your customers and transactions with services from Mailchimp, Quickbooks, Freshbooks, Nimble, Base CRM, Zoho CRM, SugarCRM, Evernote, Basecamp, Trello, and BigCommerce.
Chargify uses a subscription based pricing model with a free trial available (No Credit Card required). The company charges no setup fees, no transaction fees, and there is no contract.
Chargify is a good platform for businesses that sell subscriptions. There service is designed to let customers manage payments themselves, whether that’s by customizing their own order on your payment page, or if its by logging into the self-service portal in order to add or remove services, or change payment information, for instance. Although Chargify is suited to most SMBs, it probably isn't that great for project-based businesses, such as web designers, as it doesn’t provide time tracking or estimate tools.
