We launched our first Salesforce integration in 2014 to sync core subscription billing data from Chargify into Salesforce, and since then, it has gone through many updates in order to keep pace with the ever-growing list of workflows that modern SaaS businesses require.
Today we’re happy to announce another update that allows you to manage parent/child relationships and payment responsibilities between subscriptions from within Salesforce.
Back in 2017, we released our QuickBooks integration that uses cash basis accounting to sync Chargify transactions once payments are received.
The integration now supports accrual basis accounting where invoices are synced when they are issued—prior to payment—allowing you to view unpaid invoices and accrue revenue on a deferred basis in QuickBooks.
Chargify offers two-factor authentication as an account-wide option through security provider Authy, which until recently, required team members to validate their identity using Authy’s application.
In addition to the Authy app, we’ve added fallback support for SMS which allows team members to request their token via text message. Enable SMS support in your account's security settings.
Minimizing churn plays a significant role in revenue growth over time, which is why it’s a mission-critical metric for most subscription businesses.
Our new churn analytics product filter provides more clarity into churn rates and trends for any specific product or group of products.
Deeper insights can help you quickly answer questions such as what products suffer from higher churn or if product-specific churn reduction efforts are working.
With this update, you can use our API to import subscriptions with a 'previous_billing_at' attribute from the past to set the 'current_period_starts_at' with a backdated start date.
This is particularly useful to ensure that imported subscriptions with mid-period component allocations are billed the correct prorated amounts.
In January, we launched our GoCardless integration to offer Direct Debit payments in four popular regions/schemes: Eurozone (SEPA), UK (BACS), Australia (BECS), and Canada (PAD).
Since the initial release, we have added three addition regions/schemes: Denmark (Betalingsservice), Sweden (Autogiro), and New Zealand (PaymentsNZ).
