Lago is an open source alternative to Stripe Billing and Chargebee. Our recent launch on Hacker News made the top 5 of the past 12 months, we’ve been Product of the day, and Product of the week of Product Hunt.

We’re backed by top investors and founders from both sides of the Atlantic: San Francisco and NYC, and Europe.
