    Looks like a really useful service, thanks for sharing!

    Is there any plans for one-off payments too?

    I'm based in Australia — Are there plans for support for Aus?

    Hey I'm Pete, one of the co-founders of PayHere, thanks for all the support so far :)

    We launched on Product Hunt last week and came #4 for the day, but we wanted to post on DN to target designers specifically because we know you all launch awesome side projects and we think PayHere is one of the easiest ways to integrate subscription (or one-off) payments.

    Let me know if you have any questions and any feedback at all is appreciated!

      Hey Pete. I saw this last week, but I didn't even bother to explore it when I saw there was no documentation. The features are also pretty vague.

      I have been looking for something like this, but it's pretty hard to evaluate your product from the existing landing page. For example, right away I wanted to know if this has webhooks for subscription and cancellation events, but there's nothing in the landing page mentioning that.

      Another reason why I'm looking for a product like this is that I don't want to mess with setting up a backend to handle payment changes, cancellations, payment method changes, etc. It's not clear if you provide these either. Otherwise, this is pretty similar to Stripe Checkout (not necessarily a bad thing). It would be nice to understand how is different.

      I don't know if the vagueness is intentional or not, but I would consider making things more clear, as well as providing links to documentation.

      I have an API product and currently using Chargebee, but I would love something simpler. Maybe I'm not the right audience for this product but I thought I would share these thoughts.

        Hey Juan, thanks very much for the feedback!

        We weren't sure initially where our product would sit between designers/developers/hackers and so we went ahead and shipped with a very simple embed code and webhooks. But we haven't talked about how all of those work, you're absolutely right! We are working on more advanced documentation and examples of how PayHere can be integrated at the moment and will have something live real soon!

        If you want to sign up for an account and ping me a message on intercom I'll keep you updated as soon as our technical docs launch in the next few days and grab a video call with you to make sure we have everything you need and give you all the support you need in integrating.

        Pete
