Why SaaS businesses choose Paddle over FastSpring

Paddle is a developer-first Merchant of Record (MoR) focused on helping SaaS companies operate and grow without added headaches and increasing costs.

FastSpring is an MoR made for the e-commerce era

FastSpring began as an MoR for e-commerce companies before venturing into SaaS and digital products. Much of its underlying infrastructure was built for e-commerce companies, adapted later for SaaS and digital products.

Paddle Billing was built for SaaS and digital

In 2023, Paddle launched its latest version of Billing, a modernized version of our flagship payments and billing platform. The API-led platform was built for developers in mind, equipping modern SaaS sellers with all the tools they need to go global.
