Hi Product Hunt ✌️
I’m very happy to have my 2nd SaaS project ready and managed to ship it :)
- PayPal API sucks
- But lot of people prefer to pay with PayPal
- With cryptos getting popular, more and more want to pay with them
- No way to accept all these options in one easy integration
- No way to accept all these options without touching code
ElioPay make it easy to accept one-time payments, using Stripe (cards), PayPal and PayBear (cryptos).
How it works: connect to Stripe/PayPal/PayBear and create a payment form (specify a price, a title, text, etc.. ).
Then, either share the form’s url (no code needed) or add the form on your website with Elio.js.
You can use it for anything from selling digital/physical goods to getting paid for services.
- No backend needed
- Payment forms are mobile-friendly
- Automatically email the customer a receipt after a payment
- Customise the form’s color
- Add a quantity selector
- API to check payments
You can see successful payments in the dashboard, via the API or be notified with a web-hook.
🙃A little history
With my app Harmony, I wanted to accept a maximum of payment options to boost revenues. I integrated with Stripe (a breeze) and PayPal (much less) to accept payments. Recently, more and more users requested that I accept crypto.
After wasting a bunch of time on integrating PayPal and cryptos, I figured I probably wasn’t alone in this position. So at first I built this for Electron apps, and then expended it to anything.
Feedback is welcome!

@vincelwt Looks great but i can see it does not support subscriptions for SAAS companies
@jamie_ross Thanks Jamie! Indeed, this is definitely planned (and I need it in my projects) ;) There is small challenge I need to figure out first, with cryptocurrencies and subscriptions.
@vincelwt that can be solved with a DAPP app on etherum
@jamie_ross Do you have a link to an example? I was more thinking to invoice by email the customer each month
@jamie_ross @vincelwt I'm not sure that this is so trivial, I believe that the REQ network, which are trying to solve crypto payments have abandoned their efforts to create crypto subscription payments, thought I admittedly don't follow it very closely.
@vincelwt @luikohl ah i see
I've been waiting for something like this!
@baidoct Hope you'll like it :)
Looks great! Will try this out for an upcoming product :)
@dinuka_jayasuriya Thank you, let me know if you have any question!
@dredurr Thank you 🙏
Nice work! Looking forward to trying this out!
@isiahhill Thank you! Hope you will like it :)
Looks good. Do you have plans to add support for subscription billing?
@anandrmedia Thanks Anand. Yes I plan on supporting subscriptions down the line. I first have to find a good way to make them work with cryptocurrencies.
What about areas where Stripe is not available? Stripe is only available to some countries but not everywhere
@ajimix True :/ You will still be able to use cryptocurrencies and if it is available to your country, PayPal too
