Chargebee is a payment processing provider that does all the legwork of financial transaction processing for us. We're a news aggregator, filterer, personliser, and provider, but we don't know much about payment processing. There are also many laws and industry standards with which payment processors must comply.
So, we don't process the payments ourselves. We pay Chargebee a service fee and they do all the legal and financial compliance and processing for us.
But you don't need to sign up with Chargebee to make payments and get your subscription. In addition to providing payment processing services, Chargebee also provides us with hosted pages that they designed, and which live on their servers, so it is easy for CityFALCON customers to pay us without actually signing up on their site.
When you click or tap the Manage Subscription button in the Subscription Portal, you are actually taken to Chargebee's systems. Your connection to CityFALCON is recorded and they send us a confirmation that you paid, then we give you access to Premium. Simple as that.
