Recurly Wins CNP Award for Best Subscription/Recurring Billing Program

Delivering Improvements in Subscriber Economics and Operational Efficiencies Cement Recurly’s Position as a Leader in the Industry

San Francisco, CA–May, 22th, 2014–Recurly, the leading pay-as-you-go subscription billing management service, today announced it won the Judges Choice Award from CardNotPresent for the Best Subscription/Recurring Billing Program. The CNP Awards recognize the best companies, programs and solutions in the card-not-present payments industry.

“Our goal is to help merchants avoid unwanted churn and recover revenue. We achieve this by preventing credit card errors and declines and by surfacing business insights, specific to a subscription billing model.” said Dan Burkhart, CEO and co-founder of Recurly, Inc. “Being recognized by the CNP Awards further validates how critical our service is to helping merchants improve their business’ bottom line, by providing material improvements to a merchant’s monthly recurring revenue.”

One of the biggest challenges merchants encounter with recurring billing is the frequent declines of transactions from existing subscribers. Recurly automatically corrects for more than 60 of the most common error types and, as a result, re-captures revenue for merchants by reducing credit card errors and declines by up to 27 percent. The CNP Awards recognized Recurly for their work in optimizing subscriber economics, and improving customer retention for merchants.

Recurly makes complex billing and payment processes easy, helping merchants manage the many operational complexities required to succeed by delivering better automation, flexibility and business insights from transactional data. Its subscription billing platform supports recurring billing, metered billing for incremental consumption — such as pay-per-view experiences — as well as one-time purchases. The Recurly service enables companies to quickly create an online catalog of offerings and automate the entire billing cycle, from payments, upgrades, and downgrades to the management of credit card errors, declines and customer communications. With Recurly APIs companies can integrate their web offerings with Recurly’s billing platform, as well as their payment gateways of choice, for a seamless, end-to-end billing solution.

Now in its third year, the CNP Awards were presented at the CNP Expo in Orlando, Fla., on May 21, 2014. In each category, a panel of industry experts chose a Judges Choice award.
