While Stripe is well-known for payment processing, Stripe Billing isn't as robust - it's merely an add-on to handle the basic billing for Stripe Payments. Chargebee, on the other hand, is more comprehensive. It’s a subscription billing and management tool that is cut out to solve all possible subscription billing scenarios. It connects to multiple payment gateways (including Stripe) and addresses numerous recurring payment challenges and billing complexities. Unlike Stripe, it is also quite expansive in terms of SaaS metrics, giving you real-time reporting and a 360-degree view of your data. Additionally, Chargebee supports every tax profile across geographies whereas Stripe Billing’s support for configuring your taxes is not enough for all billing use-cases.

In a nutshell, Stripe Billing is what it says it is - a billing platform for Stripe Payments. Chargebee is a more complete solution for subscription billing and management, and more importantly, for your revenue operations.

The choice is based on your needs: Stripe, if you have limited requirements, and Chargebee, if you’re looking for something all-inclusive.

Hope this helps.
