saas•hapily vs. Chargebee: How saas•hapily Gives Your Team More Control

Compare the HubSpot+Chargebee integration with how saas•hapily (formerly Zaybra) connects HubSpot+Stripe. saas•hapily fills some of Chargebee's gaps to give you more complete data.

Many companies rely on Chargebee as their “one-stop-shop” for managing subscription payments. However, Chargebee lacks many critical features for processing payments that . For HubSpot users, it can be even worse since the integration can be confusing and miss the mark on getting the data natively in your CRM. 

If Chargebee is subscription payment "swiss cheese," then think of saas•hapily as your favorite cheddar – strong, versatile, and most importantly, no holes. saas•hapily’s features go beyond subscription payments and flex into one-time payments, workflow triggers, HubSpot reporting, and automatic syncing with Stripe - all packaged in an intuitive UI. 

Here, we’ll contrast how Chargebee works with HubSpot vs. how saas•hapily integrates Stripe and HubSpot. 

Using Chargebee with HubSpot

Chargebee has a native integration on the HubSpot app marketplace. It syncs Chargebee Customers to HubSpot Contacts, Chargebee Orders to HubSpot Contacts, and Chargebee Subscriptions to HubSpot Deals, Companies, and Contacts. 

Unfortunately, their system can’t handle one-time or irregular payments, since it focuses solely on subscription management. Workflows can’t be triggered directly from transactions. With this lack of native data, you can’t go deep into MRR or churn. 

Using saas•hapily with Stripe to replace Chargebee

Since saas•hapily is a HubSpot app, using it to connect Stripe to HubSpot is simple. Setup is quick: once you map your products, they will sync to HubSpot automatically. This syncing even includes historical data.

saas•hapily enables your teams to generate reports based on Stripe transactions, including MRR, churn, and free trial conversions. It also allows for one-time and irregular payments while giving sales access to subscription information right on the CRM Contact record.
