Congratulations to Tyrel Souza, for posting the winning comment on recurring payment services. Tyrel is using Stripe to handle monthly billing on a client’s service. He enjoys using Stripe because of it’s good documentation, and web hooks that handle events easily. His comment is below:
I use Stripe.com for recurring payments. After a few days of reading the API I was able to create a system (that launched on Monday!) that will bill users every month. My favorite part about stripe is the ease that their webhooks work with any system. I have tried Paypal’s IPN, but I always get frustrated with it. Stripe has about 7 items ping your webhook when you create and subscribe a customer, so you can act upon many events. Their system sends a failed webhook response out one hour for three hours if it fails, plenty of time to fix a problem during the day. Stripes documentation is a lot cleaner than Paypal’s also.
Tyrel will be receiving a $25 iTunes gift card.
Thanks to everyone that participated!
