Recurly vs Stripe: What are the differences?
Recurly: Subscription Billing. Zen Simplicity. Recurly is the leading pay-as-you-go recurring billing service because setup is easy, integrations are quick, and our service grows with the needs of your business; Stripe: Payments for developers. Stripe makes it easy for developers to accept credit cards on the web.
Recurly and Stripe can be primarily classified as "Payment Services" tools.
Some of the features offered by Recurly are:
- Subscription Plans
- Account Dashboard

On the other hand, Stripe provides the following key features:
- Full-stack payments- You don’t need a merchant account or gateway. Stripe handles everything, including storing cards, subscriptions, and direct payouts to your bank account. Stripe.js lets you build your own payment forms while still avoiding PCI requirements.
- An API that gets out of your way- It’s so easy, we’ve embedded a bunch of examples right here. Copy some of these requests into your terminal and check out what happens. With wrappers in Ruby, PHP, Python and more, you can get started in minutes.
- Pricing like it should be- 2.9% + 30 cents per successful charge. No setup fees, no monthly fees, no card storage fees, no hidden costs: you only get charged when you earn money.
"Recurring billing" is the primary reason why developers consider Recurly over the competitors, whereas "Easy setup" was stated as the key factor in picking Stripe.
