Choosing a subscription billing and management solution is a big decision for a subscription business; there's a lot more to it than simply saying "I'll use Stripe!" You'll need:

  1. A payment gateway
  2. Subscription management tools

Payment Gateway

We've partnered with Forte Payment Systems as our payment processing partner. 

  • Bill your customers and accept payments via credit or debit card.
  • Pay one flat fee of 2.9% per transaction.
  • Charge your customers on a monthly or annual basis.
  • Support one-time, recurring, usage based, or unit based (ex: per seat, per user) pricing models. 
  • Recover lost revenue from declined card payments with Forte's Dunning process management tools.
  • Ready to get started? Simply complete Forte's billing application and you'll be approved to start processing payments in a day or two.

Subscription Management

While choosing a payment gateway is relatively straightforward, there's typically a lot of other infrastructure that needs to be built around your payment gateway. We've done the heavy lifting here so you can get back to building your core product.

Iterate on plans and pricing - no developer required

Your first attempt at pricing your product is typically something of a shot in the dark. Outseta's "Plan Families" feature allows you to easily create and implement new pricing plans, without needing to tug on the sleeve of your development team. Rapidly iterate on your plans and pricing until you've found the plan family that maximizes revenue.

Support free trials or freemium

Whether your business relies on a free trial or freemium model, we've got you covered. Easily support trials of any duration, and choose whether you'd like to collect credit card information up front or automatically prompt prospects for payment when their trial expires.

Easily embed sign-up and login forms on your website

We've built javascript widgets that make it easy to add sign-up or login forms to your website. This functionality can be dropped into your website in a matter of minutes (we'll happily do this for you) and gives you the tools required to...

Register new users for your product (create new accounts)

The registration process can be customized to your business' needs in 4 easy steps.

  1. Edit plan details and descriptive text so users can select their plan.
  2. Setup additional checkout options like billing cycle and add-on services.
  3. Customize the account info that you'd like to capture at registration.
  4. Capture credit card information to process payments for paid plans.

 

Authenticate users, validate who they are, and show them the appropriate version of your product

Outseta makes it easy to add login forms to your website that can be easily adapted to match your company's branding. And don't worry about building your own "Forgot password" workflow - we've got you covered there, too.

Track sign-ups and measure user engagement

When you implement our sign-up and login widgets, you'll be able to track new account sign-ups and see which accounts are actively engaging with your product. Our dashboard shows you which users are logging in to your product, and when. Use this intel to proactively reach out to the most engaged accounts, whether that's during the sales process or by proactively offering your users help.

Manage users, subscriptions, and billing information

Our subscription management tools also provide a way to handle administrative tasks like managing users, their subscriptions, and billing information. Again, this represents necessary infrastructure that isn't core product functionality. This includes the ability to...

  • Invite new team members
  • Change subscription or billing information. We've built customizable logic to handle account upgrades, downgrades, and cancellations so you can pro-rate, discount, or stop incurring charges altogether.
  • Trigger automated transactional emails so your customers are aware every time charges are incurred.
