Subscription Commerce Platform: Old vs. New

Cleverbridge is a legacy merchant of record

Cleverbridge is a cloud-based global ecommerce platform that provides billing solutions for digital goods, online services, and SaaS companies in both B2C and B2B markets.

Paddle is a Revenue Delivery Platform

Paddle manages all payment methods, subscription billing, sales tax compliance, fraud protection, revenue recovery, currencies, metrics (and more), giving SaaS businesses all they need to sell software online - all from one, singular platform. 

#1: Flexible subscription models made for SaaS 💪

Cleverbridge supports several subscription billing models, but the numerous endpoints take a long time to set up. This creates an inevitable stress on your engineering resources and delays you in  making full use of the platform.

With Paddle, you can build your subscription logic alongside all your payment methods, invoices, taxes, trials, dunning, and more. That’s right, all of that flexibility in one, easy-to-use platform.

#2: Higher converting checkout experience 💸

SaaS businesses using Cleverbridge have reported low checkout conversions, usually due to limited shopping cart capability or the lack of customization in pricing layouts.

Paddle delivers much more in a much less restrictive way. With our simple APIs, you can build and create everything you’d expect from the best online checkouts – from brandable design to localized payment experiences, and one-click upsells.

#3: Active support from day one 💁

Unlike traditional payment processors, Paddle sellers get all the help and support they need throughout the processes of implementation, going live, and expanding into new markets. 

Together with solution architects, we work with each seller to get them ‘growth ready’ and set up for optimum success.

#4: Go-to-market faster with Paddle 🏃

Cleverbridge doesn't provide dedicated strategic growth support, leaving sellers needing to figure out and execute growth strategies on their own.

As a revenue delivery platform, Paddle provides  you with the resources, support, and technology to boost your revenue across the entire payment process and each customer lifecycle. An easy way to optimize your business growth across your go-to-market strategy, whatever that strategy may be. 

#5: Lower cost with all-in-one pricing 🤩

We’ve heard from a lot of SaaS leaders who have found the unclear - and sometimes even hidden - costly fees to be key drivers in their search for alternatives to Cleverbridge. 

Paddle offers everything you need to sell software, within one, simple tool - all under one simple  cost.
