The standard plan allows you to bill up to 10,000 customers with Chargify acting as an intermediary between your website and payment gateway. One of their big boasts is that they support multiple payment gateways unlike some providers in the space. This set up lets you create subscription plans and integrate them into the signup process on your website which in turn initiates a transaction for the correct amount.

Chargify can also take away the headache of charge failures where card payments can be rejected for any number of reasons. The dunning management tool lets you send customized notifications to clients covering each and every event.
