Billing Portal Introduction

The Chargify billing portal provides a great way for your customers to manage their subscription without you having to write any code. They can update their card, change plans, or cancel, all from one convenient interface.

Subscriber Invitations

Once you have enabled the Billing Portal, your customers will receive an invitation to manage their subscription via the email in their account. Chargify allows you to chose to automatically invite your Subscribers to the Billing Portal, or invite manually. With automatic email invitations enabled, we will send an email invitation to your new subscribers.

This invitation link can be included in the signup email as well using an email variable, {{subscription.billing_portal_management_url}}. Some merchants chose this method of communicating the URL because it reduces the number of emails sent to the customer upon signup.
