If you’re looking to get the most revenue out of your payment and billing infrastructure, it’s important to remember that Chargebee only caters for one part of that: subscription management. Paddle provides an all-in-one revenue solution for software businesses, catering for both payments and billing, making it a popular alternative to Chargebee.

#1: Paddle is an all-in-one platform

By only providing a platform for subscription management, Chargebee doesn’t offer a complete solution for your business’ revenue delivery. 

Paddle, on the other hand, is much more than a subscription platform. All aspects of your revenue delivery strategy and structure - from checkout to payments, subscription renewals, pricing, localization, tax compliance (and more) - are handled by us, meaning you don’t have to worry about painful integrations.

#2: Global tax and compliance taken care of

Chargebee only factors in sales tax in a few regions, therefore you’ll need extra tools to ensure you can sell globally. Not only that, but you will also need an in-house team to manage, file and remit your tax - and those costs quickly add up. 

Paddle handles tax and remittance globally, taking full liability for tax, fraud, and compliance along the way. As a reseller, your compliance becomes our compliance - so that’s another thing you don’t have to worry about.



#3: Scale quickly without overworking your developers

With Chargebee, you’ll need to integrate and maintain all the necessary tools to support your payment processing, tax compliance and payment support. That’s a lot of your developers’ precious time taken up  dealing with all of these extra tools.

Paddle’s all in one solution, enables you to free up your developers’ time so they can get back to working on what matters most: your product.

#4: Go-to-market faster with Paddle

Whatever your go-to-market strategy may be, Paddle will help you reach the end goals and business growth you’re after. 

Chargebee, on the other hand, might be slowing you down. For example, their strategic focus is Europe, which may not necessarily cover all the locations you’re after. 

With Paddle, you get all the resources, support, and technology you need to boost your revenue globally.

#5: Simplified pricing from the start

With SaaS businesses starting to think more holistically about the cost of their revenue delivery infrastructure, they have to factor in all its elements: payment processors, subscription management, tax compliance tools, plus the general costs of internal headcount. 

Paddle covers all of the above (and more) within one, simple tool - and one tool means just one set of costs to manage and reconcile.
