Chargify Launches at TechCrunch50September 14, 2009
Needham, MA (PRWEB) September 14, 2009 - Chargify (http://chargify.com), the recurring billing system that helps Web 2.0 and SaaS companies grow, launched today at the TechCrunch50 Conference (http://techcrunch50.com) in San Francisco, CA. The TechCrunch50 conference provides a platform for early-stage and frequently unfunded companies to launch in the presence of the industry’s most influential figures, as well as international media. Chargify will be demonstrated and released to this group of over 2,500, and will be offering beta invites and free accounts for one year to all companies exhibiting at the conference.
Chargify changes the way businesses look at the billing process by offering helpful tools that provide insight into customer behavior. A real-time dashboard and intuitive user interface make it easy to access data about revenue, signups, and cancellations. Chargify automatically analyzes your customers’ billing data, helping to uncover trends that will in turn produce smarter business decisions. Chargify also gives you the power to increase revenue and optimize conversions by testing different subscription plans and freemium pricing models.
In addition to Chargify’s business intelligence tools, the company offers a pricing model unlike other companies within the recurring billing industry. It’s also the only billing system that permits unlimited customers.
“We understand there are a lot of challenges when it comes to building an application like this, so we wanted to provide something ridiculously easy that would really help entrepreneurs,” said Michael Klett, the Lead Developer.
With Chargify, you can get started for FREE, with no set-up or transaction fees, and no contracts to sign. While other industry players might charge you per transaction, based on a tiered transaction pyramid, percentage of total dollars billed, or even an overage charge for clients billed over your allotted amount, Chargify makes it simple and only focuses on one thing: how many paying customers you have. Even if you’re just starting out and only have 15 clients, Chargify can work for you. In fact, service is free for up your first 50 customers. As you continue to grow, Chargify is intuitive enough to update your plan accordingly, always putting you in the bucket, which costs you the least.
Some additional Chargify features include:
- Recurring Billing API - Makes it easy for your business to integrate with Chargify seamlessly.
- Subscription Management Tools - Set any billing interval you wish, offer free trial periods, introductory pricing, and charge one-time fees.

- Branded Payment Website - Collect payments without syncing your site with Chargify’s API.
