Chargebee vs. Zaybra: How Zaybra Gives Your Team More Control

Compare the HubSpot+Chargebee integration with how Zaybra connects HubSpot+Stripe. Where Chargebee has holes, Zaybra has opportunities for better data.

Many companies rely on Chargebee as their “one-stop-shop” for managing subscription payments. However, there are many critical features for processing payments that Chargebee lacks. For those that use HubSpot it can be even worse since the integration can be confusing and miss the mark on getting the data natively in your CRM. 

If Chargebee is subscription payment swiss cheese, then think of Zaybra as your favorite cheddar – strong, versatile, and most importantly, no holes. Zaybra’s features go beyond subscription payments and flex into one-time payments, workflow triggers, HubSpot reporting, and automatic syncing with Stripe, not to mention an intuitive UI. 

Here, we’ll contrast how Chargebee works with HubSpot vs. how Zaybra integrates Stripe and HubSpot. 

Using Chargebee with HubSpot

Chargebee has a native integration on the HubSpot app marketplace. It syncs Chargebee Customers to HubSpot Contacts, Chargebee Orders to HubSpot Contacts, and Chargebee Subscriptions to HubSpot Deals, Companies, and Contacts. 

Unfortunately, their system can’t handle one-time or irregular payments since it focuses solely on subscription management. Workflows can’t be triggered directly from transactions and with this lack of native data, you can’t go deep into MRR or churn. 

Using Zaybra with Stripe to replace Chargebee

Since Zaybra is a HubSpot app, using it to connect Stripe to HubSpot is simple. Setup is quick and once you map them, products will sync between the two systems automatically. This even includes historical data.

Zaybra enables your teams to generate reports based on Stripe transactions, including MRR, churn, and free trial conversions. It also allows for one-time and irregular payments while giving sales access to subscription information right on the CRM contact record.   

Chargebee vs. Zaybra: The Basics

TL;DR – here’s what you need to know about using Chargebee with HubSpot vs. using Zaybra to connect Stripe and HubSpot. 


Zaybra (with Stripe)

  • More expensive processing fee in most cases
  • Needs a third-party for payment processing
  • Only handles subscriptions (no one-time/irregular payment options)
  • Native HubSpot app
  • Limited HubSpot reporting

  • Cheaper to no monthly processing fee

  • Handles payment processing directly with Stripe

    • Meaning you still get the full functionality of Stripe

  • Handles both one-time payments and subscription-based payments.

  • Native HubSpot app that automatically syncs data with Stripe  

  • Built-in HubSpot reporting

  • Comes with a HubSpot Custom quote that maps directly to Stripe Products

Bottom line: Zaybra is better for your business model 

You need strong reporting features, the ability to handle one-time transactions instead of only subscriptions, and a custom quote that maps directly to your products. Chargebee can handle plenty of subscription data isolated, but Zaybra will give your business the full functionality of both HubSpot and Stripe together.
