The ultimate alternative (with a serious number of powerups) to Patreon

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: We were considering options to being able to promote not only an alternative to Patreon to our supporters but also integrate the ability to present one-time opportunities to support different charity initiatives we are sponsoring and PBS is flawless at doing all this.

Pros:

The ability to create a recurring billing service for our patrons and supporters provides an exclusive environment to consume exclusive content AND is able to directly integrate with Pabbly Connect.

Cons:

I have not been able to find anything yet that I do not like of this platform.

Pabbly is fantastic

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: This has resolved tracking payments, invoicing, receipting, memoing and all aspects of tax reporting.

Pros:

It manages all my finances and accounting, I have given control to the student and users and it gives me reports. I run a music teaching school and students come and go, have five different payment plans and needs, Pabbly is coordinated and does it all. It is comprehensive and simple for everyone at the same time. It is cross-platform.

Cons:

The time to set up the URL to my personal subdomain was a small issue.

SCAMMERS, LIARS AND CHEATERS

1.0 5 years ago

Comments: ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. The worst company I've ever dealt with. DO NOT BUY THEIR SOFTWARE!

Pros:

Absolutely nothing. These guys LIED, CHEATED and ULTIMATELY LEFT ME HANGING by cancelling my account after I purchased a software license.

Cons:

Pretty much everything. This software is broken and full of bugs. Basic things like coupon codes and refunding don't even work. Furthermore the company is run by thieves.

Pabbly Response

4 years ago

Hey Jason, Sorry if we have caused you some inconvenience. The reason for banning your account is the pending payment for coupon testing. As agreed over email conversation the Pabbly support team has made you a payment of $49 in your PayPal account. Because you wanted us to test the coupon feature. In order to maintain a good relationship with you, our team has tested your Pabbly Subscriptions account by making a live payment. Everything goes well and the same is notified to you, then the team has asked for a refund of the testing amount. This request is ignored from your end and after multiple emails and messages, we have decided to BAN your account. Still, we do apologize for the disruption. But enlightening the complete case is also important here. Always Happy To Assist Team Pabbly

Pabbly continues to impress

5.0 4 years ago

Comments: Overall my experience has been terrific. Pabbly allows me to setup a new product and checkout page quickly without a lot of hassle. No transaction processing fees is huge money saver. The ability to create unlimited products and plans is a big plus.

Pros:

My favorite thing about Pabbly is the level of support I have received. Recently I was trying to create a workflow between a third party Saas to Pabbly Subscription using the Connect app. I reached out to support via their FB group for help and within an hour they had created the connection for me. The next day, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]reached out to me and got on a video chat with me to ensure I understood how to use it. I love the coupon feature and ability to create multiple plans. Although I haven't really used it yet, there is an affiliate module, which will let me have others promote my products for me.

Cons:

Sometimes the UI is a bit confusing. While it's possible to do test purchases to ensure everything is working, it's a bit tricky to delete the test data.
