Edit: Nvm, finally read the pricing page. Apparently, you're just switching to a metered billing where one of the meters is a payment gateway token. Also each plan-level now includes a limit to the number of cards on file.
What will change is marketing subscriptions directly as a stand alone product/service. It'll be rolled into our overall messaging and be much more inline with how you might see a modern gateway answer that question vs a dedicated service like Chargify, ChargeBee, Fusebill etc. Btw more to come on this topic in length in a few weeks.
But, here I was having misgivings for a brief moment, and it was silly of me. You know, these guys keep doing it right.
By no means a criticism - great job to hear about the funding, and continued success to you guys!
Second example. Say you are in the US and you do all your processing via Auth.Net. That's one token. Now you open a local office in Australia and want/need to process locally (say PIn Payments) That's a second token. Now you expand to the UK and use Sage Pay there (third token)
Final example. You're building the next Shopify or Freshbooks. Each of your customers will do their own processing and need their own merchant account. Each of those customers equates to one payment gateway token.
So a stand alone commmerce site with one gateway for credit cards and support for Dwolla and PayPal as a payment type = 3 tokens. The Uber model - where in each country you set up a new processor - probably equals 4 - 10 tokens. And then next Shopify = 100's to 1000's of tokens.
Why don't you paste the exact explanation/examples that you have given here in the pop-up that comes up when we mouse over 'pay as you go' in your new pricing page.
It would be interesting if subscriptions were also in Spreedly Core, but I can't imagine how it would work, I guess spreedly core could ping the servers of the customer if the CC failed or expired, but I guess it's unnecessary since an effort is always required in that case, so building the subscription logic on the code seems logical.
I haven't used spreedly core yet, but I really like the team, they always answer emails and help around payment topics, can't wait to solve gateway problems and start using spreedly
But mainly I want to bill non Indians. So the problem is finding a gateway/merchant account which can be setup by Indians from India.
