How painful is billing? To be honest I find all billing systems rather cumbersome and dreadful. Granted they have improved over the old days when all you had to choose from was Paypal and Authorize.net but even today none of them are super clear and always a pain to setup.
Taylor just released a brand new Laravel package named Cashier to hopefully make all this wonderful to work with. It works directly with Stripe subscriptions to make managing them a breeze.
What I love about Laravel is how the vision is to eliminate developer pain and I enjoy all these cool features. The places where it should be opinionated it is. All the API’s are simple and just make sense.
This is being released before the conference so just imagine what type of things are being held back to announce at it. :-)
