Buyers, pricing & “how you sell” will change
So will your infrastructure. Changing your pricing plans, value metric, adding currencies, adding payment methods - all of this complicates your billing stack as your company tries to maximize revenue and scale.
This goes beyond best practices like a versioned pricing config file - you need flexibility across your entire billing stack to make changes simply without re-implementing everything everytime you have to make a change.
Buyers at different sizes buy differently
Individuals pay by card and digital wallets (preferred in many geographies). Selling into teams and enterprises, typically buyers need an invoice and will pay via local bank transfer methods (or a cheque).
All these different payment methods need to be reconciled into your subscriptions, provisioning, CRM, and accounting tooling with every purchase (including subscription changes like adding/removing seats).
Buyers in other geos need currencies, payment methods & languages
To sell software globally means selling how people in other geographies buy - currencies, payment methods & languages. Without this, your foreign UX will lower checkout conversions and payment acceptance.
To sell globally, you need to integrate local payment methods which bill in local currencies to deposit into local merchant banks with local registered business entities paying local sales taxes with locally compliant invoices, receipts & confirmation emails in their native language.
Buyer’s expect seamless purchases to your new products
Launching new products? Your billing infrastructure should be ready to go.
You need to implement new payments, pricing & subscriptions, but also seamless cross-sell (ideally 1-click) to your existing customer, reconcile updated subscriptions for each cross-sold customer, update your invoices, and report on the revenue impact of your new product.
Buyers expect a Consumer-Grade Buying Experience
Your buying experience is the most important point of your customer journey.
You need to build a frictionless signup, payment flows, in-product upsell for your users. You need flexible subscription logic, reconciliation, and integrated SaaS metrics on the backend. Without these flows working, your product experience results in low conversions, low account expansion, and high support load.
