The full-feature, flexible platform for fast-growing subscriptions

Why Stripe yourself into a corner with no options?

Recurly offers choices at every turn—more gateways, more payment methods, more analytics, and better support. Let us show you how we do it.

Why choose Recurly over Stripe?


Built for the subscription industry

Stripe’s true stripes lie in the swipes—as a payment processor. Recurly is a purpose-built subscription management and recurring billing platform.

Reduce Churn

Reducing churn non-stop

Recurly solves churn with machine learning from billions of transactional data points, recovering more revenue—$1.2 billion in 2023.

Payment Strategy

Gateway choices

Stripe customers have zero gateway options. Recurly merchants can choose from 20+ (including PayPal)—and more choice means more reach.


Deep and wide subscription analytics

Recurly reigns supreme with in-app analytics and benchmarks that eclipse Stripe—so you can make data-backed decisions.

Revenue Recognition

Support for alternative payment methods (APMs)

Stripe and PayPal are not on speaking terms while Recurly supports APMs including PayPal, Amazon Pay, Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Venmo.


A champion, not just a provider

Recurly’s U.S.-based team owns onboarding and on-going support, sharing best practices to ensure success. Stripe’s support earned 1 star on BBB.
