Per user

Ordway Subscription billing software supports a wide variety of “per user” pricing models:

  • Licensed users – everyone with a login
  • Monthly active users (e.g. logged in 1x per month)
  • Ranges of users (e.g. 1-10 for $100/mo, 11-20 for $200/mo…)
  • Waves of users – scheduled to on-board at different times
  • Tiered + user (e.g. Pro, Business, Enterprise per user per month)
multi-tiered per user subscription pricing with starter, business, and enterprise packages


Ordway’s subscription billing software supports 2, 3, or N tiers of packages with progressive feature sets and entitlements and pricing models such as:

  • Features – progressively “good,” “better,” “best”
  • Users – unlimited or per user per month fees
  • Usage – unlimited or monthly allowances per tier
  • Hybrid Combinations – of all of the above
four-tiered subscription pricing with free, essentials, professional and enterprise plans

Hybrid billing models

Combine subscriptions with other monetization strategies

Grow recurring revenue faster with fixed or variable fee add-ons atop your monthly subscription fees.

  • One-time fees

    Bill upfront or during the contract lifecycle for implementation, on-boarding, training, integration, professional services, and perpetual licenses.

  • Usage-based pricing

    Charge based on consumption. Ordway’s usage-based billing offers support for overage fees, rollover units, expiration dates, and prepaid credits.

  • Percentage pricing

    Take a percentage of the dollar value of transactions processed on your platform. Charge a flat commission or offer volume-based discounting models.

Enterprise pricing $500 per month + 0.1% + $0.25 per transaction
