If you are looking for a Saas payment provider, it can be overwhelming when faced with the vast array of solutions available online. There are commonly known tools such as Stripe, or Paypal, but there are also less commonly known tools like Chargebee, Recurly, and others that may be a better fit for your business needs, and specifically, the needs of a SaaS company.

Collecting payment for your SaaS product can be a tricky business. Decisions like the choice between multiple pricing plans, monthly or annual payment schedules, recurring payments, etc make it confusing. This can complicate the billing process and as you scale and solving for every individual customer manually becomes impossible.

Here at SegMetrics, we’ve put together a list of SaaS payment providers that might fit your particular needs. Read on to learn more.

2. Recurly
