Introducing the SaaS Rails Kit. Write your app, not billing code.
Imagine having all the billing and subscription code already written for your application, complete with testing, payment gateway interaction, and all the bugs ironed out. You've found the SaaS Rails Kit, a solid "starter" Rails app with all the subscription and billing functionality you need to make money with your Web app from day one.
I’d recommend buying the Rails Kit for Software as a Service from Ben Curtis. It’s $250 well spent on billing/gateway code that has been well tested. I'm using it for a site in production now quite happily.Brian Ketelsen
The SaaS Rails Kit was an incredibly useful code base for selectively pulling out bits and pieces that we needed to implement. It easily saved us a week of implementation time and we were even able to pick up some new coding habits as well. [It] saved us from reinventing the wheel.Garrett Dimon - Sifter

Rolling your own billing code means lots of dull production-readiness testing and bug fixing, taking time away from the fun work on your app's core features. The SaaS Rails Kit is already in use and making money on production sites (such as Catch The Best and Next Proof) so you can be confident to get started right away.

We’re using the Saas Rails Kit on a startup site. Even if we just use it as a reference site, it’s totally worth it!Tee Parham - Mobile Foundry
A year ago, I purchased The Money Train, an e-book written by Benjamin Curtis. I thought the tips on building an e-commerce site were priceless. I came across Rails Kits and saw that it was from the same guy that wrote that e-book. Even better, he’d finally done what I wished he had done before: built a best-of-breed billing system using his intimate knowledge of billing systems.Chris Grant - MacHive.com
I purchased the SaaS Rails Kit and have been working through the code. This really is awesome stuff! Days and weeks of our time have been saved and we couldn’t be happier.
Ben Curtis, developer of The SaaS Rails Kit, is also a well known Rails blogger, maintainer of the Rails Plugin Directory, and author of The Money Train, one of the first books on developing Rails-based e-commerce sites.
Once you're a Rails Kit user, you'll get direct support from Ben and other SaaS Rails Kit users on a private forum. You'll also have a say in the SaaS Rails Kit's future by suggesting enhancements and other payment gateways to support.
This Rails Kit comes in two varieties. It depends on whether you're building just one app or want to build more in the future. In either case it's a one-time fee with no annual, per-developer or per-server charges!
You also get a money-back guarantee so your purchase is risk free! If the SaaS Rails Kit isn't suitable for you, simply ask for a refund.
Once you have made your choice, and checked out with PayPal or a credit card (your choice), a link to the SaaS Rails Kit will be e-mailed to you.
