"Work with Recurly more efficiently"

What do you like best?

Recurly allows you to manage sophisticated tools for managing subscription plans, promotions, churn, and fraud. The program interface is easy in its work and attractive. You can monitor your reporting.

What do you dislike?

I would like those one-off payments were a little easier and the program in its work was more flexible. Also, I would like that there would be a section of sales orders. The pricing given to the program is great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you fully understand the work of the Recurly you can really improve your business. If you want to use this program, you may still need an additional program for analytics. You will find that Recurly works well and the developers of the program constantly improve it. The support service of thу Recurly works quickly and qualitatively.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All functions that this program offers to us, are useful and functional for our business. I definitely will continue to use Recurly in my work.

"Invoicing software"

What do you like best?

This is a wonderful software. I'm glad that with this good platform I can describe many wonderful things that work for me. Everything is useful and simple. With this program you can track your reports. The interface of the program is simple in its work and attractive. Support is good. Representatives are usually available in the chat and have always been able to help us.

What do you dislike?

It is a little difficult to gather the exact data that we need for our analysis of the end of the month. This platform can make its efforts to the reports. Does not correspond to the main cases of use, for example, to request a credit card at the end of the free trial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The functions that this program offers are useful and functional for my business. With this software I'm sure that I can see how my financial resources grow. I like that I'm moving forward without stopping at some point. I will definitely continue to use this platform in my work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A great easy-to-use platform, if you fully understand the workings of this platform, you can really improve your business. If you want to use this program, you may need an additional program for analytics.

Perfect solution which works on your problems. I guess everything is simply right. You will never stay in one place. Great support will help you all the time.

"Would 100% use again"

What do you like best?

Recurly takes the pain out of subscription billing. At an early-stage startup, not having to handle all the headache around different payment options, billing cycles, invoicing options, etc is huge. They support is also great. Most of the time you have access to live chat; if no one is available, they're responsive over email.

What do you dislike?

I don't use the analytics and reporting at all. There are some aspects of the product that are not completely intuitive, but they're support is excellent. For example, it took awhile to figure out how to automatically attach PDF invoices to emails.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are accepting credit card payments, aside from Recurly you will also need a payment gateway like Stripe or Braintree. I would not recommend getting ACH payments directly through Recurly, as you will have to use a 3rd party service called Check Commerce which I have found to be a poor service.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solves everything around subscription billing. Benefit is that I can confidently charge / accept payments from customers.

"Gross Deficiencies in the Product. Recurly then asks you to pay $600 to get around them"

What do you like best?

At this point, literally nothing. The system worked fairly well until we had to create more than 1 coupon. Then the recurly team was disastrous with Support and follow through. Their functionality has huge flaws in coupon functionality.

What do you dislike?

Their coupon functionality is bogus at best. You can't assign other plan types to coupons once created. Any business, especially a fast-paced business, often has the need to introduce new plans for their customers. You want to honor some coupons for the new plans. Recurly doesn't support this. When you ask them, they say it "might happen sometime in 2019". That could be *two* years from now. Then, they try to get you to pay $600 for their prof services team, meanwhile ignoring your requests. They tell you

Even worse, when you point out deficiencies in their UI they tell you to pay their Proffesional services team. When I inquired with the support team, they said they'd escalate it. This is an easy fix to do on the back end of their software. Instead, I waited hours, had to check back in again, and was told that they wanted to me to do a workaround (which is not a workaround at all- it won't even work. And I already explained why this isn't viable).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't buy unless you want to hit major issues and then be met with "why not pay our Recurly Professional Services Team $600 to do this basic thing that our product should do"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pretty much none. Their customer support has been horrendous. 7+ tickets and emails, their team will take months to send you a follow up email, and when your issue "gets escalated" they just respond later giving you the same answers as if they never listened at all.

"Decent Billing Software "

What do you like best?

I like being able to see historical data on all my clients accounts. The churn analysis is excellent as well.

What do you dislike?

The software is a bit complicated and not as customizable as I would like. Its a but confusing when you are a non-finance person trying to navigate through and find something very specific about a clients account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would like more customization, but for a basic billing software it does the job. Limit who has access to this so you can keep everything consistent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to digitize the billing for our subscription service in a quick and easy way. Very little ramp, you can get in and start using.

"Functional but someone expensive"

What do you like best?

The 'Account Updater' function is awesome. Recurly automatically updates many expired credit cards - saving our billing group lots of time.

Products is solid and delivers on its intended use. Uptime is very good. No noted bugs.

Recurly has been adding features to make it more flexible. In particular the way it handles refunds has been greatly improved.

Support is good. Reps are usually available via chat and have always been able to help us out.

What do you dislike?

-The reporting is weak. There is no way to generate a report that shows transaction along with the accounts User Name or Company name. So, if a customer uses an email address when signing up, you can only generate reports with this email address as the identifier. This drives us crazy, as there no way to tie the line item on the report to an account record in our financial ledger or CRM system unless we manually look up each email address. How hard would it be to add a column in the Recurly report with either the Company Name or User Name? Seriously?

-The presentation of account credits are very confusing. Its tough to tell if a credit has been used or not.

-Service is expensive vs. competitors. Be sure to price check before making a decision.

-

Recommendations to others considering the product

use the 30 day trial

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recurly has been great at solving the following issues:

Updating expired credit cards

Billing recurring subscriptions

Manually generating invoices and sending via email

Collecting on billings that have been declined

"Mixed experience"

What do you like best?

Recurly's user interface is very appealing and intuitive. It's generally easy to onboard new internal users.

What do you dislike?

We tried to use it as our only invoicing system for our business but it failed in many different ways.

1) Very low and hard limits on company name and address fields - it's very problematic when dealing with large customers

2) Not possible to make credit notes for manual invoices

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering moving to Recurly as your only billing platform, you need to consider if you can live with the tradeoffs their system provide. If you mainly have B2C of small B2B clients, most likely it will be a great system for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recurly is able to handle both credit card and bank payments in one unified system, giving employees easy access to anything billing related.

"Best in its class but could become quite expensive!"

What do you like best?

Recurly is easily the best subscription billing platform. It automatically updates expired credit card which saves a lot of time. There are no bugs what and the platform constantly get updated with new features. Their support team is something that is always there for their customers.

What do you dislike?

There is really not much to dislike but Recurly could put their efforts on reports. They could be a little cheaper compared to what they are now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering Recurly only as a billing platform then you can straight away go with this platform just because their support team is good but if you are looking for cheaper alternatives as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously we had a tough time with managing subscription billing and maintenance, now all that is handled by Recurly.

"Usually stable and reliable payments"

What do you like best?

Several years ago, we were very happy that we found Recurly, as there were not many payment solutions that would support SaaS subscriptions.

What do you dislike?

Nowadays, Recurly is just one of many good providers, but I won't be able to say they are the best and be 100% sure I'm right. We've grown as a business, our expectations have grown also and not always is Recurly ready to fulfill them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Other apps to consider? Braintree, Stripe.

While using Recurly, you will also need an additional software piece for analytics. Possibly - ChartMogul.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accepting automated payments from customers worldwide - customers provide us with their credit card details and the following payments are being triggered by Recurly.

"The best in subscription management"

What do you like best?

As a developer I have a lot of experience integrating payment processing and subscription management into existing software and I can say without a doubt that Recurly is leaps and bounds ahead of any other subscription management service. It seems that generally the competition mainly focuses on payment processing and only have subscription management in order to provide a complete package which is usually lacking.

Recurly on the other hand treats subscription management as a first class citizen and provides all of the capabilities you'd expect, Add-ons being one of many. The admin portal, documentation, customer support and API integration for developers are all top notch.

What do you dislike?

Every product has room for improvement, but in relation to what other services provide I can't honestly say that I dislike anything.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're just looking for a payment processor with basic subscription support there might be cheaper solutions out there, otherwise Recurly offers the best subscription related features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our email security service supports many optional features that a customer can choose to subscribe to. Recurly's add-ons enable us to accomplish this very easily. Certain plans have specific add-ons with specific pricing and we're able to override that pricing on a subscription by subscription basis if necessary.

"Great product. Great support."

What do you like best?

Recurly might have the best support I've ever seen. The answers are always fast (a few minutes) and accurate.

Besides that, the interface is clean and easy to use, the API can be quickly integrated with SDKs in several programming languages.

The solution might be a bit pricy for really small companies but for medium or big companies, the service and quality offered make Recurly worths the money.

What do you dislike?

The only issue we've had with recurly was about localisation. We're a french company and as such, needed a way to translate the emails and invoices sent to our customers.

At the time (2012-2013) there was now way to do that with recurly. That might have changed since then.

So we disabled automatic emails and made our own system triggered by recurly notifications.

Not a big issue though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

All features being equal, recurly has certainly the best and most effective support team you've ever seen. If you only need one reason to choose them, this is the one.

Besides that, the uptime is good, communication too (scheduled maintenance for example) and they constantly upgrade their product to make it better and even more secure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a payment solution to handle yearly and/or monthly subscriptions, coupons, etc. The idea was to avoid the hassle of dealing with recurrence, credit card information storage, invoices, etc and be able to launch our new product quickly.

After some evaluation, Recurly appeared to be a good compromise between price and quality. We've never been deceived by them since then.

"Be very careful when you pick a subscription platform"

What do you like best?

Their UI it pretty good but apart from that nothing.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't meet basic use cases e.g. ask for credit card at end of free trial

Doesn't do user based pricing only tiers

Charging model is outrageous compared to competitors, I have had 1 customer and spent $1200 + fees in a year so haven't even broken even. It should be revenue share only.

Why do you have to plug in a payment gateway as well? Not necessary with competitors.

Poor customer service

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not use Recurly as it is inflexible

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Free trials, credit card after free trial, subscriptions, user based pricing

"Helpful Staff"

What do you like best?

I love that the staff is available to help in immediate needs. This service is very easy to use for any subscription business, they allow for tons of sub plants and price points and provide detailed information and reporting. They also have a lot of webinars to learn new features.

What do you dislike?

One thing that i really dislike is the the refund system, sometimes it adds refunds as CREDITS on accounts instead of just refunding, this can get tricky and usually you need the service reps to walk you through it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a subscription business this is one the of the best things you can do for yourself. Take a few webinars and try it out, you will be impressed. Chat with the techs, they will help with any of your needs almost instantly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have found this gives us good reporting on trends with our business, we have only been using for 1.5 years so i expect after 2 years I will have a broader idea of what exactly is benefiting us the most.

What do you like best?

Recurly allows you manage your customer's subscriptions with ease.

What do you dislike?

We are able to automatically manage our existing customer base of credit card subscriptions as well as handle subscriptions fluctuations that are prorated down to the minute.

"Recurly a great tool for early stage B2B SaaS companies"

What do you like best?

It's easy to use and get around. Their export functionality provides a lot of detail about each section of the platform making it easy to create the reports we need to for our SaaS company.

What do you dislike?

While exporting to a CSV is great and all, it would be nice to have some better native reports such as calculating monthly or annual churn rate (both revenue and customer). It would also be great to have more flexibility around managing the plans. As a SaaS company, our pricing has a tendency to change or we tack on new add-ons. The ability to tack on add-ons is not easy to do and requires creating brand new plans. The same goes for the length of someone's billing cycle. For every length type (monthly, quarterly, annual), you have to whip up a new plan instead of being able to alter an existing. This makes for a very messy and lengthy list of product plans.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great easy to use platform and the price is right as well. Some limitations around reporting and in flexibility on changing up existing plans without having to create brand new plans but otherwise, a great tool for any SaaS company looking to get out of managing customer accounts in a Google spreadsheet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem of keeping track of our recurring customer payments and knowing when those payments are successful as well as not successful so that our account management team can collect on those behind in payment.

"HELPFUL"

What do you like best?

The invoices are automatically generated, the website UI is user friendly, web hosted link for customers to edit their billing information (I used this link when our own customer information page was down) - cutting off access for customer who haven't paid after numerous notification attempts. Our previous payment system kept issuing access even though customer hasn't paid for 1 or 2++++ more months.

What do you dislike?

I loved every thing! It took a while to get used to the new interface, a couple of time i had to go back and fourth between the new and old version but eventually I got used to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track who's paying. How many active users we had. A benefit was that recurly cut off access for customers who haven't paid after numerous notification attempts. Our previous payment system kept issuing access even though customer hasn't paid for 1 or 2++++ more months. It was a lot of manual investigation to find out how many months/money was owed to us from customer's with no longer valid CC info.

"Remove the hard parts of subscription billing"

What do you like best?

Recurly is very developer friendly, provides a great documented REST API and really takes the pain out of implementing a fully-featured subscription billing interface into your SaaS solution. I was able to implement the whole billing part of our application in less than a day.

What do you dislike?

Recurly is not a fixed-price product and is not cheap. They charge a percentage on every transaction, on top of a $300 monthly fee and the percentage that is already going to the payment gateway eating into your margin. I'd give it 10 points if it were just a fixed price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you look at the pricing, consider that you'll spend weeks to implement a fully-featured subscription billing interface yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The implementation of a full subscription billing interface for a SaaS solution was seamless.

We use Recurly to support:

- Different subscription plans

- Upgrade/downgrade plans

- Extra payment or refunds when changing plans

- Refunds of partial periods

- One-shot price adjustments for customers

"Decent software, not very intuitive dashboard"

What do you like best?

I like that the software handles recurring payments independently and alerts the admin when credit cards are declined.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the backend dashboard. It seems like there are multiple names for the same items and some sections are hard to find. Its not easy to update the credit card info.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to set up recurring payments for one of our services. It has made the billing process hands-free since we started.

"Recurly is fast and simple, once you learn it."

What do you like best?

Once you learn the software, it's easy and quick to get things done. Seeing past history on an account is clear. Our organization is easily able to give many different departments access and enough privileges to fully own our required tasks. Still, our Finance department can truly own billing and collections.

If and when their have been issues with Recurly, their support has been thorough and their communications have been clear and helpful.

What do you dislike?

You definitely need training from someone else who has used it to learn it properly. It didn't seem intuitive or something I could learn on my own. Also I'd say about 15% of the time, the site is down, or I at least have to log in three or four times.

If manual collection is used for certain invoices, you lose the ability to truly audit what a customer is seeing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you obtain and document all necessary training before allowing all your users unsupervised access.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a lot of small self-service users on our platform who change their subscriptions frequently. We have to be able to solve billing questions and issues in the Support and Success organizations without relying in Finance. Recurly helps us do that.

Auditing past changes and maintaining transparency with our customers nicely aligns with the values of our own company. In a previous company, utilizing billing software was pursued as a monumental undertaking reserved for experts only.

"Recurly User for Customer Accounts"

What do you like best?

The user interface is fairly easy, not only for myself but also to refer customers to in order to update acocunts.

What do you dislike?

There's not a lot that I dislike. There seem to be some quirks with some of verifications on customer information, which has been difficult. I also had a poor customer support experience (thankkfully the CSM for the account must have been copied and eventually stepped in)

Recommendations to others considering the product

I don't have any, I'm not involved in the business decisions for why we chose recurly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Recurring billing is a necessary evil."

What do you like best?

Management of Dunning -- easy to keep track of who is having payment issues and needs attention.

Recurring payments just happen!

Nice to see reporting trends...everyone likes an MRR growth graph!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes I need to start a recurring payment in the past. This doesn't seem to be possible...

I don't have Recurly officially connected to my application, so it is still a process to get a new customer onboard. I wish there was an easier way to make this happen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need easy ways to take credit card information and trigger ongoing payments, and Recurly is what makes sure this gets done. It's certainly a benefit to have payments come in regularly, and notices go out when they don't.

What do you like best?

It's simple to just drop into any web or mobile app. You can use their hosted forms, or one of the many, well-documented API's. Getting set up with Recurly was the easiest part of making my web service fatten my bank account. I recommend it at every hackathon I attend.

Hard to think of anything, however I'd like one-time payments to be more straightforward.

"Great Subscription Billing Software"

What do you like best?

Ease of API integrations, intuitive data model, pleasing user interface, PCI compliance and direct to customer tools

What do you dislike?

The company is still growing into a robust feature set. Would love to see things like contracts/sales orders represented in their model and more in depth invoice tracking.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recurly is really great for a set it and forget it process of billing. With the right hosting of their user tools, customers can update their own outdated payment information without you ever manually contacting them. Their card re-try algorithm maximizes revenue with the least manual intervention possible.

"Subscription billing win"

What do you like best?

No more hiring someone to do our billing on the 1st and 25th, and not only that -- we are able to save money with credit card declines. We weren't using a real processing interface, this is great!

What do you dislike?

Coupons are able to be reused. I cannot fix this!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to bill customers on monthly payment plans. It helps us lock in huge jobs, as well as provided a cutting edge compared to local vendors.

What do you like best?

Their PHP ADK is very extensive and well written. The JS library for forms is also extremely helpful for staying PCI compliant.

What do you dislike?

The Webhooks will sometimes not fire and we had to create some processes to compare our data with recurly and figure out payments and statuses.

Excellent product, just make sure you have procedures in place when webhooks are not sent properly.

"Reviewing billing information"

What do you like best?

Since I primarily only use the product when needing to get subscription/billing information about our customers, I do like how easy it is to navigate around the site and the reporting functionality.

What do you dislike?

I have heard from my colleagues who use Recurly much more frequently that there seems to still be occasional bugs, as well as, the support being not as helpful as they would prefer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since I primarily use Recurly just as a source of billing information, and am not a primary individual in inputting/maintaining that information, I don't think I can say I am solving any problems. The benefit I can think of is the easy to maneuver interface allows me to grab information at ease.
