Paid was created because it is difficult for any single company to get billing right. Billing is typically critical for your business, but it’s also not how most businesses make money. When starting a business, the last thing you should worry about is building your own a scalable billing solution. That’s why there are billing automation platforms like Paid.
But there’s quite a chicken and egg when it comes to billing software. You have to make a lot of money to afford them (because they are typically expensive) and you also need to use one to make lots of money (because billing is complex). Well, when the we sat down to build Paid, we said “To hell with that!” Billing technology should be both affordable and accessible to every size company, no matter their billing complexity.
Paid is now over 2.5 years old, and we’ve learned a lot along the way. We always say “Hindsight is 20:20,” and that’s why we’re starting this blog. Whether you are a Paid customer (and we hope you will be) or not, we plan to document everything we’ve learned so that you don’t have rely on hindsight. If anything, you should trust that your billing is right…now.
So be sure to check back here for regular updates on the sometimes-chaotic and often-obfuscated world that is billing.
