Summer 2022 Chargebee Billing Updates: A Capability for Every Growth Strategy

The market is looking grim for early and late-stage startups with the rapid inflation, high borrowing costs, and drying up of VC funds.

While the finance team worries about keeping the cash flow healthy, times like this are perfect for you to test your pricing and value fit. The easiest way to push the needle on top-line growth during uncertainties is to run packaging experiments and upsell campaigns.

Chargebee Billing has always been about helping subscription businesses maximize their revenue growth by tapping into new geographies or revenue segments. With the Summer 2022 release, we’re taking that one step ahead and helping you test and iterate on your pricing and packaging without any developer dependency.

And now for The Summer 2022 product updates.

Monetize your product with better feature provisioning

What?

Chargebee Entitlements gives you packaging and provisioning flexibility by allowing customer-facing teams to manage feature access and limits on a plan or subscription level without any developer dependency.

Why?

Continuous packaging iterations help businesses understand the value customers derive from your products and features.

How it helps

With Chargebee Entitlements, you can automate feature provisioning and incentivize higher plan features by offering limited period trials to select customers without developer dependency. You can also enforce usage limits on a plan or customer level. Entitlements also help GTM teams with upsells by provisioning features to customers at the flip of a switch and showing them the actual value beforehand.

Centralize multiple business entities in one Chargebee Account

What?

With Chargebee Billing’s multi-entity management capability, you can manage subscription data and streamline operations for all your business entities under one roof while offering a localized experience to end-users.

Why?

Critical business insights could be buried under tangled workflows and siloed subscription data with multiple tools for different processes and platforms. Duplication of data and efforts can end up affecting productivity while increasing operational costs.

How it helps

Chargebee Billing’s Multi-Entity management capability helps you manage subscription data for all your business entities in a single platform. You can significantly reduce operational costs from managing multiple accounts for different business entities and customizing each entity’s invoicing, billing, and subscription workflows.

Manage your Android and iOS subscriptions within Chargebee

What?

Chargebee’s iOS & Google SDKs, AppStore & PlayStore integrations, and a single unified API helps businesses manage in-app purchases, web purchases, and the subscription lifecycle of mobile users in one place. You can also centralize your mobile and web subscription data and generate channel-level reports under one roof.

Why?

Multi-platform businesses, especially the ones with an iOS app, often lack visibility into their app-generated revenue, subscription statuses, or user behavior within the app. Any data they may have is usually siloed in different tools parallel to their web subscriptions. On top of that, keeping up with app guideline changes and ensuring compliance with the new rules is a full-time responsibility. Chargebee’s in-app purchase management relieves you from all these pains.

How it helps

The Android and iOS SDKs or APIs kick in to complete an in-app purchase and maintain a record. After validating the receipts, Chargebee Billing listens to the AppStore and PlayStore notifications for subscription status and keeps a record. You get cross-platform analytics with the web and mobile subscriptions under one roof.

Why?

Expand into Europe with Checkout.com

What?

Both B2B and B2C businesses wanting to offer a wide range of global payment methods to their customers in Europe can now use our Checkout.com integration to start offering all desired new payment methods.

Why?

The preferred payment method in Europe varies a lot in each country, where the customers prefer to use their respective local payment methods like iDEAL, Sofort, Bancontact, and so on. Customers looking to expand deep into Europe need to offer these EU local payment methods to acquire more customers. So far, our clients have been unable to tap into the European markets fast without supporting these local payment methods.

Not anymore.

How it helps

For subscription businesses aspiring to tap into the European market but struggling to navigate around the multiple local payment options, ‘Chargebee’s integration with Checkout.com‘ unlocks the power of

  • Faster expansion into the EU markets
  • Unmatched Payment flexibility to your EU customers/prospects by offering a wide range of options for EU local payment methods like iDEAL, Sofort, and Bancontact via Checkout.com

Streamline your workflows with Salesforce advanced controls and permissions

What?

You now have the flexibility to ensure that the different personas using Chargebee+Salesforce can only modify data relevant to their function. This feature allows you to place your Salesforce users into segments with specific permissions, such as edit, read-only, or even ensure a default value is populated. An example of this could be a customer who prefers the sales team not to be able to alter the “auto collection” field due to business reasons. You can also set up a “Sales Manager” role to access the restricted field.

Why?

Various user personas like the AE, BDR, Account Managers, and RevOps work out of Salesforce and are generally a different function/user group than those working out of Chargebee. Some important quote creation and subscription management workflows, when accidentally modified, could disrupt your revenue workflows.

How it helps

Chargebee’s native Salesforce integration with advanced controls and permissions feature’ enables:

  • Enhanced control and customization around fields enabling custom-user-permissions for Chargebee such as edit, read-only, or ensuring a default value is populated.
  • Flexibility to ensure the Sales personas using the Chargebee for Salesforce integration can only modify the data they need.
  • The ability to set default values at a field level within groups gives more flexibility beyond the single field level default that Salesforce CPQ+Billing provides.

Advanced accounting integrations that support additional payment methods

What?

With our out-of-the-box advanced accounting integrations, you can confidently offer payment flexibility to your customers without worrying about increasing the burden on your finance teams.

Why?

B2C businesses eyeing expansion into Europe require invoices with all payment methods to be managed automatically on their Accounting/ERP platforms like Netsuite, Intacct, Xero, and QuickBooks. They need support, especially for payment methods such as – iDEAL, Sofort, Bancontact, Wallets(Apple Pay, PayPal), and so on. Manual effort to handle records in the accounting system might lead to errors and delays in the book closure cycle.

What?

Razorpay is one of the leading payment gateways in India. We have partnered with Razorpay to offer payment methods like UPI AutoPay and e-mandate (cards and Net Banking) that are optimized for receiving recurring payments in India.

Why?
