Schedule Future Date for Subscription Cancellation

We understand your business requires flexibility when serving your customers, and that sometimes customers leave. To make this process as painless as possible, you can now specify any future date as a Subscriptions cancellation date. This option and our previously supported cancellation choices ('Cancelling Immediately' and 'Cancel at End of Period') will now be within the 'Cancellation Timing' drop down on the Cancel Subscription page. To start using these cancellation options, simply select on the drop down menu when initiating a cancellation.

Proforma Invoice Preview

Knowing exactly what you will be charging your customers is vital to running your business and maintaining client relationships. Proforma invoices has been a feature request asked by many of our customers, so we are excited to announce the completion of its first roadmap milestone. The new proforma preview feature will allow you to view the next billing invoice amount for a subscription. 

This previewing function is the first milestone in our Proforma roadmap feature request. This can be used in your formal review processes when upgrading your customers on an annual basis, for example.

HubSpot Integration Available in Beta

We are excited to announce that our nextgen Hubspot integration is now in beta! Integrating Chargify and Hubspot seamlessly connects your CRM and subscription billing operations to streamline your revenue generation processes.

The integration synchronizes date bi-directionally, so your catalog, customer, subscriptions, and deal management records are always in sync. Users are able to use Hubspot as they do today with the added benefit of automatically creating subscriptions in Chargify. The line items for building deals in Hubspot are synchronized from the Chargify product catalog for easy use in deals, quotes, and winning new customers.

If you are interested in the integration, please email us at support@chargify.com or contact your Chargify Customer Success Manager. 

Salesforce Integration Syncing Options on Trial Accounts

The Chargify to Salesforce integration is becoming even more flexible thanks to feedback from our customers over the last few months on data flow enhancements. There is now the option to not sync over trialing accounts from Chargify. If selected, this will allow your subscriptions to flow over to Salesforce after the trial period, when it is active and paid. 

Our goal is to build the Salesforce integration as flexible as possible to accommodate various business and operating models, so you can sync your data that best fits your needs. If you are currently not using the Salesforce integration and are interested, get in touch with your customer success manager today.

Dynamic payouts are an exciting feature that is in high demand, now more than ever. Receive funds within minutes of clearing, rather than working to conventional banking timescales. Dynamically schedule funds and keep your customers happy.

Additionally, when you connect to UNIPaaS you are provided a Merchant Portal with real-time monitoring to more effectively manage transactions, financial reporting, and gain insights on users and statistics.

Subscription Groups in Salesforce

Our latest Salesforce integration (v3) is continually being enhanced to parody the functionality in Chargify that is used by your sales & support teams, preventing them to swivel between two systems to serve your customers' needs. The latest update to our Salesforce integration now utilizes Chargify’s Subscription Groups. When creating a subscription you can now select if the subscription should be billed individually or in a consolidated invoice with other subscriptions.

Subscription Preview in Salesforce

Sales processes often involve multiple rounds of back and forth with customers before agreeing on a final set of products, services, and prices. To make this process as quick and simple as possible for your prospect and sales team, the Chargify to Salesforce integration offers Subscription Previews. 

The subscription preview serves as just that - a preview of what is being purchased. This preview can act like a quote and be sent to your prospect or customer so they can directly see the products and services, quantities and prices being discussed. This preview can be updated as many times as needed as you move through negotiations. Once the opportunity is Closed Won in Salesforce, the subscription is automatically created in Chargify.

Gain Predictable Recurring Revenue with Prepaid Subscriptions

You can now provide your customers with a new subscription type: Prepaid. Our latest core functionality allows you to create prepaid usage-based billing models providing a safety net for your recurring, predictable revenue. This new subscription type works with either metered or events-based components, giving you full flexibility on how you want to charge and how your customers want to use and pay for your product or service. Your customers can gain peace of mind with a true value-based pricing model where they pay in advance for usage they will decrement against as they use your product or service. 

With real-time visibility, both you and your customers benefit from always knowing the exact state of funded balances and usage against those balances. In addition, auto-replenishment is an option so that your customers can decide when to re-up their balance after hitting a specifically defined threshold, that is set at the customer level, not the product level. This added level of customization provides you the ability to provide a white-glove service approach to your customers. 

Prepaid Subscriptions also come with sophisticated notification workflows that can keep all or some of your customers in the know of where they stand with their prepaid usage. Customers always know what usage they have paid for with invoices generated at the end of each renewal period.

For more information on Prepaid Subscriptions, see our documentation here>  

Salesforce Coupon Creator

Your sales team now have the ability to create coupon / discounts directly in Salesforce!  This added functionality will give your sales team the ability to create coupons on the fly, without having to interface with the Chargify application. Any coupons created in Salesforce, will automatically be synced back to Chargify. 

Additionally, your Customer Success team can also benefit from this added feature, by creating discounts for your customers to help with potential churn.

Account Updater with BlueSnap

Credit Cards numbers change all the time, regardless of the reason (ie. expiry dates), these updates impact your ability to successfully bill on time. Last month we announced the launch of BlueSnap, a payment gateway specializing in global payments. As this integration continues to expand to meet our customers' needs, we are excited to announce that the Account Updater feature has been added. 

The Account Updater from BlueSnap enables card information changes (such as expiration data changes, account number changes, account closures, and more) to be conveniently and automatically updated, reducing failed payments and the need to contact each customer directly. 

With Account Updater, you can maintain customer satisfaction of customer service due to non-payment while minimizing costs associated with collections and manual account updates. The BlueSnap Account Updater service is supported for American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa cards.
