The 14 pains of building your own billing system

published on 2024/02/27

Billing is hard, intertwined, and complicated.

Because it’s so inter-connected, it can go belly-up rather quickly if something breaks. And stuff does break. Frequently. (If you have a team that’s maintaining this system and it’s not you, ask them!).

Also, if your system isn’t breaking just yet. Give it some time.

Look, I know you are busy running the business and you already have lots on your plate. You just want to collect some money and move on to more pressing features that actually matter to customers.

But remember:

👉 if you can’t collect revenue legally and correctly, it’ll become your headache and you’ll have more on your plate than you could possibly ever chew 👈
