Glossary > Billing Platform
A billing platform is a technology solution that is widely used in the Software as a Service (SaaS) industry to automate the tasks associated with invoicing and billing. It enables businesses to streamline their billing processes by automating the generation and delivery of invoices to customers.
One of the primary features of a billing platform is its ability to handle various subscription plans, including recurring billing frequencies. The platform generates invoices automatically based on the terms of the subscription, such as monthly or annual billing. This means that customers are automatically charged at regular intervals without the need for manual intervention from the business.
By automating recurring billing, businesses can ensure that they receive predictable revenue streams, which is crucial for the sustainability and growth of a SaaS company. The billing platform allows businesses to save time and reduce errors associated with manual invoicing and payment processing.
A billing platform should also handle payment processing and provide customers with payment options, via credit cards or bank transfers. This ensures that customers can easily and securely pay for their subscriptions, improving customer satisfaction and retention.
