How to Integrate Chargify With Jotform

December 7, 2023

Chargify is a recurring billing system designed for subscription-based businesses. Chargify frees you from worrying about billing so you can focus on building innovative web applications.

Chargify provides a lot of advantages in recurring billings, such as the following:

  • Trial Periods based on any duration of days or months
  • Setup Fees can be charged on sign-up or after a trial period expires.
  • Bill every period until canceled or automatically stop after so many days or months.
  • Choose what products/plans are subject to taxes.
  • Automatically calculate and bill based on location.
  • Quickly create a compelling coupon and discount offers to support sales and marketing needs.

With Chargify, you can only sell subscription items, and you must have those subscription items created through your Chargify dashboard before setting up the integration. The integration will fetch and list them automatically.
