Paddle Integration

The m3ter Integration for Paddle enables you to quickly set up and implement highly configurable usage-based pricing models for your new or existing Paddle service. You can then charge your customers based on what they use, instead of charging by subscription under a one-price-fits-all pricing model.

The m3ter Paddle Integration is seamless, meaning you only need to ingest consumption usage data into m3ter in order to be able to bill via your regular Paddle service. You can also start to exploit ingested usage data using other m3ter features, such as our analytics tools, and support other business operational use cases.

This topic provides an overview of the m3ter Paddle Integration.

Sales to Payments: High-Level Integration Flow

The m3ter Paddle Integration combines three data flows to achieve a seamless sales-to-payments implementation as a single, synchronized end-to-end data flow:

  1. Paddle customer Checkout and Subscription into m3ter Account and Account Plan.

  2. Usage data submitted and ingested into m3ter.

  3. Billing output from m3ter into Paddle.

Data synchronization and flows between Paddle and m3ter are established and maintained using webhooks.

Checkout and Subscribe Flow: Paddle to m3ter

Upon successful Checkout completion in Paddle by an end Customer, a Subscription Created webhook is triggered and captured by m3ter via the connector. An Account and Account Plan are created in m3ter, which contain the mapped Paddle Subscription Plan.

Usage Data Ingest for Metering

End customer usage data measures and events are submitted and ingested into m3ter via API calls or file uploads. See Submitting Usage Data and our Submit measurements API Reference documentation.

Billing Flow: m3ter to Paddle

m3ter Bills can be generated as often as required during the billing period. When a Bill is approved, the integration creates billing modifiers in Paddle via the connector.

Native Integration for Outbound Bills! You can set up a native integration directly in the Console for outbound bills to be sent through to your Paddle system. See Configuring Paddle Integrations for more details.
