Blog Cover_Introducing Maxio’s New and Improved Developer Experience

For subscription companies, billing is an essential part of the overall customer experience. That’s why choosing the right billing and subscription management platform can be the difference between delighting your customers or losing them altogether. 

At Maxio, we believe the developers tasked with creating a seamless digital billing experience for their customers should enjoy the same white-glove treatment their customers do. That’s why we’re excited to announce a series of improvements we’ve rolled out to radically improve the developer experience.  

From the early days, prior to Chargify and SaaSOptics merging to become Maxio, developer experience has been a core part of our DNA. Because of this, we’re pumped to share our recent improvements to Maxio’s developer experience with the market. 

We understand the pivotal role developers play in the technical evaluation, integration and adoption process of new software. The Developer Experience is our commitment to empowering these vital contributors with the tools they need to succeed, enhancing both their experience and the value they deliver to their businesses," - Barrow Hamilton, Head of Product at Maxio.

Self-provisioned sandbox 

Users can now test-drive Maxio Advanced Billing through a self-provisioned sandbox.

According to Noah, a Founder and CTO at a mid-size software company, "Our biggest challenge when evaluating a billing solution is integration within our platform and within our other billing and operational tools. I like to evaluate the tool from a technical standpoint to make sure it has a robust offering. Then I like to evaluate the long-term partnership aspect of the tool and company, then consider the price."

With that in mind, we’re delighted to announce our new sandbox experience, which allows potential Maxio customers to trial our Advanced Billing solution at their own pace.

Software development kits (SDKs) 

Software development kits (SDKs) are one-stop-shops offering developers essential tools and pre-made code components to work in their preferred coding language. 

Maxio’s SDKs make it easier than ever to interact with Maxio’s Advanced Billing API. Currently, we support SDKs in the following code languages: 

  • HTTP 

  • Java

  • .net

  • PHP

  • Python

  • Ruby

  • Typescript

  • Go (Alpha)

Enhanced API documentation 

An API is only as good as the documentation supporting it. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce improvements to Maxio’s Advanced Billing API documentation. These improvements include: 

  • Data validation

  • Search and navigational improvements

Check out the full API documentation here.

Embeddable components (in beta) 

One of the key features of Maxio’s Advanced Billing product is the billing portal. Now, with embeddable components, Advanced Billing users can self-host, white-label, and fully customize their digital experience, allowing them to offer in-app self-service actions to their end-customers that match the seller’s brand identity.

Improved developer portal (in beta) 

Big news! We’re in the process of rolling out a new and improved developer portal in partnership with APIMatic, an industry leading developer experience platform.

Not only does the new developer portal provide a modern digital experience, it allows developers to facilitate the discovery and exploration phases of their implementation by testing our API in real-time. Additionally, it extends our developer experience to other popular API solutions like Postman, Insomnia, and more.
