FastSpring handles the complexity of selling software so you can get back to doing what you do best — building great products. Our platform includes global payment processing, subscription management, checkout, sales taxes and VAT, fraud prevention, and much more.
Why Use a Merchant of Record?
When you sell with FastSpring, we act as the merchant of record for every transaction on your website. By doing so, we take responsibility for every aspect of the checkout process, including tax collection, remittance, compliance, payment processing, localization, and much more. This frees you to stop worrying about taxes, compliance, and all the rest so you can get back to doing what you do best — building great software.
