We were considering options to being able to promote not only an alternative to Patreon to our supporters but also integrate the ability to present one-time opportunities to support different charity initiatives we are sponsoring and PBS is flawless at doing all this.

Pros

The ability to create a recurring billing service for our patrons and supporters provides an exclusive environment to consume exclusive content AND is able to directly integrate with Pabbly Connect.

Cons

I have not been able to find anything yet that I do not like of this platform.

This has resolved tracking payments, invoicing, receipting, memoing and all aspects of tax reporting.

Pros

It manages all my finances and accounting, I have given control to the student and users and it gives me reports. I run a music teaching school and students come and go, have five different payment plans and needs, Pabbly is coordinated and does it all. It is comprehensive and simple for everyone at the same time. It is cross-platform.

Cons

The time to set up the URL to my personal subdomain was a small issue.

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. The worst company I've ever dealt with. DO NOT BUY THEIR SOFTWARE!

Pros

Absolutely nothing. These guys LIED, CHEATED and ULTIMATELY LEFT ME HANGING by cancelling my account after I purchased a software license.

Cons

Pretty much everything. This software is broken and full of bugs. Basic things like coupon codes and refunding don't even work. Furthermore the company is run by thieves.

Response from Pabbly

Hey Jason,

Sorry if we have caused you some inconvenience.
The reason for banning your account is the pending payment for coupon testing.
As agreed over email conversation the Pabbly support team has made you a payment of $49 in your PayPal account. Because you wanted us to test the coupon feature.
In order to maintain a good relationship with you, our team has tested your Pabbly Subscriptions account by making a live payment.
Everything goes well and the same is notified to you, then the team has asked for a refund of the testing amount.
This request is ignored from your end and after multiple emails and messages, we have decided to BAN your account.

Still, we do apologize for the disruption. But enlightening the complete case is also important here.

Always Happy To Assist

Team Pabbly

Overall my experience has been terrific. Pabbly allows me to setup a new product and checkout page quickly without a lot of hassle. No transaction processing fees is huge money saver. The ability to create unlimited products and plans is a big plus.

Pros

My favorite thing about Pabbly is the level of support I have received. Recently I was trying to create a workflow between a third party Saas to Pabbly Subscription using the Connect app. I reached out to support via their FB group for help and within an hour they had created the connection for me. The next day, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]reached out to me and got on a video chat with me to ensure I understood how to use it.

I love the coupon feature and ability to create multiple plans.

Although I haven't really used it yet, there is an affiliate module, which will let me have others promote my products for me.

Cons

Sometimes the UI is a bit confusing. While it's possible to do test purchases to ensure everything is working, it's a bit tricky to delete the test data.

Over the past eight years I have tried more than a dozen subscription billing softwares. The various different companies and startups. Nothing comes close to the affordability seamlessness of pabbly. After signing up to pabbly, you'll have a host of page up and running enliven your site within 5 minutes. Beat that.

Pros

Seamless and smooth. Clean and easy to use dashboard.

Cons

Limited on high-level features. I don't think they have all the features needed when it comes to complex subscription hosting. But I will never know, because I will never need those features

Having a pabbly subscription suits my small business because it's so affordable. Its interface is clean and its forms are easy to use. One-time and recurring payments are always easy to keep track of. Great product for a one-time purchase.

Cons

Cons

It helped us a lot in managing our recurring billing requirements for our software FormGet. Earlier we had built the entire billing software ourselves inside FormGet. Building a billing software is like trying to build a software within a software which deviates you from your core focus on building your application.

Pros

Most of the software which manages the recurring billing charge a hefty monthly fee and some even ask for a percentage charge on each transaction done through them.

Pabbly is much affordable in that regards. It also integrates with multiple gateways like Stripe and PayPal for collecting payments.

Apart from that, another problem with other billing software is that they usually allow you to create plans on a core level. So basically if you want to categorize plans inside a product it is simply not possible with others. This is something that I like about Pabbly subscriptions, you can neatly create products and then create plans under each products which makes the entire subscription management much more simple and easy to manage.

Cons

I think the API's can be added to do lot more things which are missing right now. Although since the software is relatively new and growing I think they will get to it soon.

My experience with the software and the team behind it has been nothing short of exceptional. After only a short conversation, the team at Pabbly quickly added my preferred currency (South African Rand - ZAR) to their platform and I was able to complete payments easily.

I'd highly recommend the platform for any SME looking to leverage subscription-based billing for their clients.

Pros

It was incredibly easy to figure out and the UI made for simple configuration of your particular plans, checkout and payment processing. The documentation was also thorough and easy to follow. Custom Payment integration option makes for an incredibly flexible platform.

Cons

There is currently only a single payment gateway (PayPal the only native integration available currently). The fantastic support team at Pabbly have reached out in this regard and I know they are actively busy rolling out more and more integrations constantly.

Response from Pabbly

Hello Martin,

Thank you soo much for your kind message and rating.

I have been using multiple third-party tools and never came across by one which does not care about their customers.
As per my business needs, I opted for the paid Pabbly Form Builder tool.
During the quality check, my team suggested some changes in the user acknowledgment in the user email.
When I reached the customer support team, they asked me to pay $500 for the customization, what the hell!
On escalating the issue, the same has been communicated by the Pabbly team. And when I pressed more they have canceled my subscription without any refunds.

Pabbly has been unprofessional and hostile towards my requests which were critical to my business.
Reflecting on the whole episode, I think Pabbly could have dealt it in a better way.
All, please beware.

Pros

- Pabbly canceled my subscription and without any refund

Cons

My experience with the tool -
- Unprofessional
- user-hostile
- hidden and undeclared terms

Solid billing solution for small business

Reviewed on 2022/06/06

Pros

I am a big fan of pabbly Team when i first started using pabbly connect. I have been using pabbly subscripitons for over 6 months now and I think the service is great. The software is very intuitive, easy to use and has a lot of features that make recurring billing easier. It's also super affordable with a one time fee compared to other subscription services out there so it definitely makes sense as an alternative to paying monthly fees.

Cons

The support team is a bit slow. Other than that, i dont have any issue with the software.

The chat agent want address any of your issues he’ll say that you have to email the support team for a refund even though it was one minute ago that they charged me and I didn’t use the software and then the support team said they won’t refund me because it was an hour after

Hello Blair,

Sorry if we have caused you some inconvenience.
But your account was suspended due to the incompleted payment
The Pabbly support team has contacted you several times and asked to confirm the payment by sending the payment receipt or Invoice.
The conversation was prolonged by several messages but the payment receipt was not provided from your end till this date.
That's why the team has decided to BAN your account under a fake payment.
This point is already mentioned in our terms and condition and also brought under your consideration over the emails.

Still, we do apologize for the disruption.
