Payment Gateways . With Chargebee you can accept payments via various payment gateways such as Stripe, PayPal, Braintree, etc. You can also enable recurring billing with Chargebee using these gateways.

For example, if a customer pays via PayPal, then Chargebee will automatically update the account with the payment details from PayPal. Similarly, if the customer uses a credit card, then Chargebee will update the account details with the credit card information.

Recurring Billing . Recurring billing is one of the key features of Chargebee. It helps you to set up recurring transactions at regular intervals such as monthly, quarterly, etc. Customers can choose from a variety of plans based on your needs and preferences. The next step is to specify the frequency at which they would like to pay (i.e., monthly. Once the customers have chosen their plan, you can send them reminders about upcoming payments in an automatic manner through email notifications. One of the advantages of using recurring billing is that you don’t have to worry about trying to get payments from your customers at the right time every month. You just need to provide them with a link to your account on Chargebee where they can complete their payment at the correct time. In case you have any issues with payments, then you can go to the Chargebee dashboard and monitor each of your accounts to find out who hasn’t paid yet.

Upgrades . Chargebee offers a variety of upgrades that help you manage your customers better while giving them the best experience possible. Upgrades allow you to add features such as custom names for products and services, requiring customers to enter a custom message before completing their purchase, and adding additional information regarding shipping and handling information within your product details page.

Multiple Billing Address Integration . Using multiple billing address integration you can manage your billing information for each product individually. With this feature, you can decide whether or not your customers’ billing information should be linked with their account or not. If you want you can even add a new billing address for each user who places an order using your account on Chargebee. This gives you greater flexibility when it comes to handling your orders and payments while maintaining your customers’ privacy at the same time.

Customers . Chargebee allows you to create customers individually or import them from your existing system or platform using CSV files. Once you’ve added customers into your account on Chargebee you can view their details separately and contact them individually as well. This functionality makes it easier for you to organize and manage your customers’ accounts in a more efficient manner than what was possible previously. You can customize their details based on their requirements by adding custom fields such as home address, contact number, email address, etc. You can also add credit card information for them in case they are eligible for one of the charge plans that requires credit card authorization. In addition, you can also upload documents like invoices into their account on Chargebee so that you can keep track of all your communication with each customer individually through their own account page on Chargebee dashboard.

Invoice . Chargebee allows you to create invoices for each customer based on their communication history regarding the order placed by them on Chargebee or by importing invoice details from other sources into your account on Chargebee using CSV files. These invoices help in keeping track of all your invoices in one central location where you can view all the details about each invoice including date of creation, status of payment made by the customer, due date of payment, total amount payable by the customer regarding this invoice, etc. You can also add notes for each invoice so that it becomes easier for you to keep track of any special instructions regarding invoices that were issued by you or instructions provided by the customer related to this particular invoice. This helps in reducing errors and also makes it easier for you to provide better customer service in future based on previous interactions between you and your customers regarding billing matters.
