If you’re the owner of a successful business, congratulations, you cracked the code! In your experience, what was the most challenging aspect of starting and running a business? Was it getting funding, was it red tape or was it convincing people to buy whatever you had to sell?
In our view, these are some of the many challenges facing an entrepreneur. But this article will not focus on those. There are plenty of TED talks where you can find inspiration. Here, we will talk about something far more mundane- payment and billing solutions.
The market is full of tools for those looking to solve the Herculean challenge of managing payments. In order to decide which is the tool best suited to your needs, it might be worth considering some pros and cons of the tool you have in mind.
This article will focus on FastSpring, one of the many payment solutions available in the market. One of the main pros of this tool is that it is reliable and offers many payment options for customers. Another pro is that this tool can be used by customers across the globe, who can pay in any currency.
FastSpring also has some cons, the main one being that they have poor customer service. Some users have mentioned that their customer service is unresponsive, which is discouraging. Other cons include poor user experience and a user interface which is difficult to use.
In case these cons are making you consider other tools, you can go through a list of FastSpring Alternatives put together by Startup Stash.
