Hello fellow indie hackers,
I'm building a tiny SaaS product (https://journmail.com) and I'm trying to add billing and invoicing to it. I want to implement recurring billing with automatic invoicing and so far I've built the billing system with PayPal.
Now that I have the billing system, I have to implement invoicing for it and PayPal doesn't support some sort of hook system which would notify me when it processes a recurring payment, so I'll have to implement some sort of a cron job that checks processed payments on PayPal and sends invoices. This means that I have to implement an invoicing system for my business (small unlimited liability company) which would also take into account VAT for EU based customers.
Side note: Stripe is not available in my country (Croatia) and I don't want to go through a process of opening a company in the US via Stripe Atlas.
What tools do you folks use for this? How do you folks handle the invoicing and billing for EU based SaaS products?
