Why is it better?

Keep the recurring revenue coming

If you offer subscription payments or payment plans, be sure you get paid on time with automatic reminders before and after card bounces.

Send reminders before card declines

Automatically remind customers that their card will soon expire so they can update it, you get paid, and their service isn’t interrupted.

Automatically retry to collect payments

If a subscriber misses a payment, automatically attempt to recharge the payment multiple times, and email the customer for a better chance of it going through.

Handle declines your way

When payments don’t get made, you design what happens next. Choose to give clients a grace period, shut off access immediately, or find a middle ground.

Problems solved

Don’t let a bounced card ruin your day

Ontraport’s automation features let you recapture lost sales.

Handle declined cards immediately

As soon as a card declines, email or text the customer to try again, and repeat your reminders for a better chance of retaining them, automatically.

Don't lose opportunities to close the sale

For those hot leads who are on your order page but don’t push that final “buy” button, automatically send an email within the hour to bring them back.

Stop losing money

Handling declined or abandoned transactions manually is time-consuming and stress-inducing. Set it on autopilot and be assured it’s taken care of.

Let your customers self-serve

Make it easier on you and your customers by creating a customer center or credit card update form where they can update their own card information any time.

“All the features Ontraport has in concert with each other allow you to build a great and repeatable customer experience. We were able to automate subscription enrollment, recurring payments, dunning, failed payment notifications, and more.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Ontraport the best ecommerce platform for small businesses?

Yes — Ontraport is a great choice if you’re looking to grow your small business! It comes with everything you’ll need to sell online and scale: order pages and forms, payments, upsells, tracking and more.

While other ecommerce tools on the market may seem more affordable, many of them require additional integrations for your marketing, customer relationship database, sales pipeline, internal workflows and other must-have features… and those price tags add up fast. With Ontraport, you get everything under one roof and will never end up with a price tag that’s disproportionate to your business size. 

I want to start selling online. What features should I look for in online payment platforms?

If you’re planning to take payments online for your product or service, you’ll need a platform that can process those payments and offer a smooth purchase experience for customers. Here are a few features you should keep an eye out for as you shop:
  • Order forms: Can you accept payments, offer subscription plans and integrate a payment gateway?
  • Offline transactions: Can you manually charge credit cards for purchases that didn’t occur on your website?
  • Complex offers: Can you manage subscriptions, free or paid trials, payment plans or any other offers you dream up in the future?
  • Upsells and order bumps: Can you boost average order values by letting customers add to their purchases during checkout?
  • Decline recovery: Can you automatically follow up and save the sale when a customer’s card is declined?
  • Customer center: Can you create your own branded online portal for customer self-service?
  • Referral tracking: Can you track referrals and reward your partners for spreading the word about your business?
Ontraport is one of the best ecommerce platforms you can choose, because it gives you all the features above and more — all under the same roof as your marketing, sales and customer database.
