Hosted Checkout 

Chargebee's hosted checkout collects your customer's account and billing details and helps complete the order by processing the payment.

With Chargebee's hosted checkout, the customers are redirected to a secure payment page hosted by Chargebee to complete payment for the product or service. These pages adhere to security and compliance standards such as PCI  and GDPR . The checkout page is customizable, allowing you to brand the page with your logos and colors. Chargebee's hosted checkout supports various payment options, including bank-based payments, direct debit, and wallets.

Chargebee's hosted checkout also integrates with other tools and features offered by the platform, such as customer management, invoicing, and tax calculation. The integration allows you to easily manage subscriptions and payments and track customer data and analytics. Hosted checkout is your one-stop destination with custom fields, default language translation, smart routing, analytics, and more.

Here is what happens in Chargebee when a customer clicks the Checkout/Subscribe button.

UI Layout Options 

Chargebee currently offers the following layouts that you can choose from based on your look and feel preferences:

In-App Checkout 

In-app is a simple, elegant, and intuitive modal-based checkout. On clicking the Subscribe/Checkout button, the Checkout modal opens, where your customers can enter their account and payment details. You can configure your brand elements, fields, display charges, taxes, a thank you message, and multiple workflows to suit your business needs. The in-app layout is optimized for mobile devices and elegantly handles the customer journey for your checkout funnel.

Here is a sample of the In-app Checkout.
