Super security and more payment types

payment typesA huge thanks must go out to our patient users who’ve put up with ProdPad even though they could only pay with PayPal. We know that, as a business selling to other businesses, you’re going to need to pay with a credit card online, and not rely on your PayPal accounts.

Great news, then, as we now accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express!
Sorry folks, we were wrong in saying we took American Express. We don’t! More importantly, we don’t think it matters just yet, but we’d love to find out if you’d miss it or any other payment type. Would you? Have your say 🙂

It was important to us to have a secure, reliable payment system, as well as something that was smart enough to work out the price of your mid-month upgrades and downgrades (prorated billing makes our head spin). We checked out all of our options and found that Recurly is the most trusted and robust subscription billing system out there, and today, we rolled out a billing system powered by them.

The underbelly of the payment system (or the ‘payment gateway’ as the banks like to call it) is still PayPal, but upgraded with billing pages hosted on our own site.

No more awkwardly getting shoved over to to complete a subscription with us. Hurrah!

Rest assured, these pages are secure, and we’ve got the SSL certification to prove it.

Upgrading from trial

Already trying and loving ProdPad? What are you waiting for, upgrade now, and use for all 30 days for free.

We still offer all of our new users a 30 day free trial. We want you to love ProdPad and find it hugely useful before you upgrade.

If you’re sold already and want to upgrade, you can enter in your payment details, but we won’t take any money until the day your original trial would have ended.

And of course, you’re free to cancel at any time, seriously.

As always, if you have any questions, get in touch with us. If you want to talk about how ProdPad is helping (or not!), or if you just want to have a chat, reach me on a whim at
