Clazar’s mission is to empower ISVs to succeed in leading cloud marketplaces with minimal lift by empowering them to streamline both pre and post-sales workflows. To enable effortless metering for ISVs, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Orb as the first official metering integration partner. 

This collaboration introduces a game-changing integration specifically tailored to support ISVs offering Pay-as-you-go (PAYG) products or products with fixed cost & usage-based pricing for overages.

By partnering with Orb, Clazar enables sellers to automate their billing process on cloud marketplaces. This integration provides ISVs with a seamless solution to streamline their billing operations across different cloud platforms, eliminating the need for managing metering submission at your end and ensuring accurate and efficient billing management amidst ever changing requirements by cloud portals.

“At Orb, we believe in solving usage-based billing needs for ISVs in a scalable and transparent way. We partnered with Clazar to provide ISVs with a seamless solution for automating their billing operations on cloud marketplaces. We are excited to empower ISVs by simplifying the management of PAYG products with our first-ever official metering integration.

Together with Clazar, we can support ISVs in achieving greater efficiency, accuracy, and success in the cloud marketplace ecosystem."

Say Goodbye to Manual Data Entry

With Clazar's Orb integration, sellers can bid farewell to the tedious task of manually entering usage data. Instead, usage data is transmitted automatically to cloud platforms, ensuring accuracy, efficiency, and convenience in managing billing operations. Sellers can now focus on growing their business instead of wasting time on repetitive tasks such as uploading metering records.

Hassle-Free Onboarding Process

Getting started with the Clazar-Orb integration is quick and easy. Sellers can integrate their Orb account with Clazar directly from within the user interface, completing the setup in just a few minutes. 

For sellers already using Orb to meter their marketplace customers, they can map their existing Orb subscriptions to Clazar entities using the provided APIs, ensuring a seamless transition to the integrated billing system.

“Scaling up and ensuring accurate metering and billing can be quite challenging for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) who sell through cloud marketplaces. This can require significant infrastructure and human resources. We teamed up with Orb to automate the metering and billing operations on cloud marketplaces, making it seamless for finance and engineering teams to integrate their billing provider with cloud marketplaces.”

Streamlining Billing Workflows

Once the integration is established, Clazar will provide a smooth workflow for managing billing tasks for metering. Sellers receive webhooks with contract data every time a contract event occurs in Clazar. Using these notifications, sellers can create or update the matching Orb subscription in their account and then use an API callback to associate the relevant Orb subscription ID with Clazar's billing system. This streamlined process ensures accurate metering and simplifies the management of billing workflows.
