HubSpot Custom Deal Pipelines

Last week we announced that our native HubSpot integration is now listed on the HubSpot App Marketplace. For your customer-facing teams (Sales, Customer Success, Marketing and Support), this integration creates a whirlwind of efficiencies by providing them the features and functionality to easily manage subscriptions and gain insights from your Chargify data all within the tool they know the most: HubSpot. 

For sales managers who are using more than the 'Sales' pipeline in HubSpot, we understand that Deal pipelines help visualize your sales process to predict revenue and identify selling roadblocks. Our Product Team continues to enhance this integration to better serve your use cases and today we are excited to announce that we have extended the functionality to your HubSpot Custom Deal Pipelines.

Salesforce CPQ Wizard

An integrated tech stack built with your Salesforce CRM can provide a customized experience to your clients and prospects. The Chargify + Salesforce integration is a flexible one-stop-shop for your customer-facing teams to effectively serve your current and future client base.

New to our native integration is the ability to use Chargify's product catalog to add line items to a Salesforce Quote. When creating a quote in Salesforce, you can now use Chargify's wizard to create subscriptions that will be added to the quote. 

This new functionality allows users to create multiple subscriptions on a quote with products, components, and coupons. Once the deal is won, the subscription(s) will be created in Chargify.

UK VAT Breakdown

The UK requires merchants doing business in the UK and invoicing in currencies other than GBP to provide a breakdown of VAT in GBP on e-invoices.  The regulation (found here) states:

You can invoice in any currency for the goods and services that you supply. If UK VAT is due on the transaction your invoices must also show the following in sterling:
  • the total net value of goods and services at each VAT rate
  • the amount of VAT, if any, at each rate
Chargify merchants who fall into this category can now add this breakdown directly to their e-invoices. Enable this feature at your site level, under the invoice settings.

For more information on the UK VAT breakdown, see our documentation here>

Subscription Filtering by Groups

Many of our customers today are leveraging the use of Subscription Groups to consolidate invoicing for their customers with multiple subscriptions. In using the Subscription Index within the UI, we are excited to announce an added filter for this subscription type!

Our Product Team has added the ability to filter between Subscription Type, now supporting three types under the 'More Filters' dropdown:

  • All
  • Individual Subscription
  • Subscription Groups

This added filter will provide your customer-facing teams a quick glance on the health of your subscription groups leading to faster turnaround time on decisions and inquiries. 

Head over to the Subscription Index UI and check it out! 

Send Multiple Invoices to Customer in One Email

Providing a convenient, fast, and safe method on collecting payment from your customers is key to building and maintaining that recurring revenue relationship. Chargify's core functionality on sending invoices provides an easy way to both send automatic and ad-hoc invoices via email. 

We are excited to announce that we have extended our functionality to include sending multiple invoices to a customer in one email. When managing a subscription’s invoices, you can apply filters to refine the invoice selections before selecting 'Email Customer' option. You can attach up to 24 invoices in one single email.


For more information on sending emailed invoices to customers, see our documentation here>

Subscription Index UI Enhancements

Managing your subscriptions in Chargify should be as easy and seamless as possible, from the sign-up to look-up of information on your customer base. As we look to continually enhance our UI look and feel, many of our customers recently sat down with our Product Design Team to provide feedback on how we can improve the Subscription Index UI. 

Today, we are excited to announce that we have made several enhancements that will delight our users through a more simplistic design. We have added new filtering options with an improved search capability in addition to a new 'Product' column.

Backdate a Received Date for External Payments

We understand that some of our customers are entering external payments into Chargify, and oftentimes the day it gets entered is not the same day it was received. In order to support downstream reporting and align the date you received these external payments (such as paper checks via mail), you can now specify a received_on date for external payments. 

In the UI, users can provide an effective date via Invoices > Invoice Show > Record Payment > Record External Payment. The received_on date will be set to the current day by default, but the user can backdate by changing the received_on field.

For historic reporting, this field has been backfilled with the created_date date in order to facilitate reporting from this field; however, the received_on date can only be different from the created_date going forward. 

In the UI, received_on will be exposed in the /payments and /transactions pages and exports. Please note that this is the /transactions page, not the new Transactions Report page. There are plans to add this field to the new Transactions Report page in the future.

The received_on date is also available via the following API endpoints: transactions, invoice, and invoice-events.

Stream Data from your Application to Chargify for Billing and Analysis

It’s easier than ever to send data from your application to Chargify Business Intelligence for custom analysis. With this information, you can hone in on how your users are consuming your product and identify key value metrics. Then, leverage this data to build complex, multi-attribute pricing models that charge your customers for the exact value they receive. 

Take a Data Ingestion Tool for example, with Events-Based Billing, they can charge different rates based on: Cloud Provider, Data Center Region, Cluster Type, and Availability.

Data Read Event Rate per GB:

Include Avalara Sales Tax When Creating Price Points

The tax landscape for recurring revenue businesses can oftentimes be difficult to manage, leading to confusion on how to effectively apply taxes to your products and services. Adding to that complexity is determining a final price for your product that includes tax so that your customers are only advertised and charged one single price.

Within Chargify, your Avalara Managed Sales Tax account helps eliminate the ongoing headaches in managing sales tax for your recurring revenue business. Adding to Chargify's native Avalara functionality, our Product Team was recently working on a beta feature with some of our customers. We are happy to announce that this new feature is now in general availability!  

You can now utilize a 'tax included' option when setting your final prices in your Product Catalog within the UI. For example, if you want the final price (with taxes included) to be $20 for one of your subscription offerings, you can choose the "Tax included in price?" when building out your price point. Your customer will be billed $20, and in turn you will be collecting your subscription base price + tax.
