Recurly provided a ready to go solution for our billing issues. This is an important part of our business opertation, but not one we felt we needed to become experts in, having recurly there to fill that role has been great.
Time To Launch
We’re actually using both the API and Hosted Payment Page. The basics got setup super quick: within a day or so. Working through the API to integrate with our database was a couple weeks worth of work.
Going with recurly saved us a ton of time and money. It allowed us to have a functional system setup within just a few weeks, and to migrate away from a much more cumbersome and expensive setup we’d previously had. Since we’ve been live with recurly, things have gone quite smoothly.

CTO, Mr. Number
When we wanted to start charging for our service, we knew there was no way we were going to build our own billing system. We needed a service to store credit cards, process payments, handle both subscriptions and one-time charges, allow us to export our customer data if we needed to, and provide a drop-dead simple API. We’ve worked with multiple billing systems in the past and did a detailed analysis of every vendor on the market in our price range. Recurly had everything we were looking for and more.
Time To Launch
We were able to launch in just over a week. We have been using the API and push notification service from the start, and the full featured test environment and detailed documentation let us start developing immediately. We host our own signup page, but we were able to save time by using the Recurly hosted account summary pages.
We never have to worry about operating our billing system. Purchases and renewals all happen automatically: payments are processed and invoices are emailed to our customers without us having to do anything. The administrative pages make supporting our customers easy. And the API integration just works -- we have had to put very little effort into our integration since we launched, freeing up the whole team's time to work on our product.
We needed to accept monthly/yearly donations, and had only a couple weeks before our big launch event. We’re not yet ready to practice PCI compliance, and wanted to make sure that whatever solution we incorporated could not break under the many boundary conditions surrounding credit card payment. After investigating many hosted billing options, we settled on Recurly mainly because of its ability to offer customized plans per user.
Time To Launch?
In about a week, we created a hosted payment page for initial signup and an API-based page where people can modify their donation amount, as well as a 2nd hosted payment process targeted at the mobile web. We were able to create good-looking, branded e-mails in less than a day.
The launch event was a success, and we processed tens of thousands of dollars through Recurly. People loved using our mobile app to make their payment and were impressed by how easy it was to use, much of which is due to Recurly’s simple payment form. Basically, we were able to accept monthly donations after a week of work by 1-2 engineers, part time.
