Real Case Studies from Real Customers.
We Our Customers
See why customers are raving about our “Best in class” 24/7 customer support!
In one of our PK accounts, in the first 2 weeks of using it we have done almost 600 transactions with $37.000 in total revenue, automatically paid JV contracts, with integrations to Kajabi, Infusionsoft, our own 2 SAAS products all seamless so far! Once we move everything over, this will save us mega bucks
Mark, PayKickstart is crazy powerful I MUST CONFESS I’ve been playing with it for the past few weeks and honestly, I’m over-impressed hats off to you and Matt Callen
No more “duct tape” needed!
We’re so happy to find PayKickStart. This is the solution we’ve been looking for and now we can finally rest with confidence.
We use the PayKickstart checkout popups and integrate directly into our sales page and have seen outstanding conversions due to how simple you guys have made it.
We were originally using Braintree and another cart but it was causing nightmares
Until we switched this March and we’ve seen sales nearly TRIPLE our revenue based on how easy the checkout and upgrade process has become!
We just started using the affiliate management and we have received so many good reviews from our affiliates on how simple the system is compared to what they are used to!
We love PayKickstart and will be integrating it further into our product line as it has earned our seal of approval.
We’ve even started recommending it to friends and colleagues and they’re blown away at how robust and powerful the platform is, yet simple and user friendly. Great platform and your support is excellent!

I’m a part of a new management team with our family newspaper.
In my role I was charged with creating a digital subscription program with incentives.
Paykickstart provided just the platform that I needed to automate the transactions and pay affiliates seamlessly.
The customer service team was so patient as we tested the system and the affiliates are really enjoying the fruit of their labor.
Our son who is ten loves to receive those congratulation emails.
The reporting options make my job so much easier.
The platform is super easy to set up and is very intuitive.
Seems like Paykickstart thought of everything from recurring billing to split commissions and customer follow up emails.
This platform not only saves us time but provides an opportunity for us to compensate our team as we build our subscription base.

Just thought I’d share that the activecampaign and DAP integrations are working very well…
launced a campaign, already have 1 sale with a small list of 450,
50% conversion on the car (small sample).
Have people in an abandoned cart sequence
and the upsell sequence.
All because the PK integrations are firing properly.
Wanted to give you some positive feedback since you only heard from me when something wasn’t working.
Have a great week!
I have been using PayKickstart for about 4 months and used it to launch my membership site.
I was deciding between PayKickstart and another very well known platform.
Why did I choose PayKickstart?
I was having issues with the other platforms integrating with my membership platform and it was causing me stress.
But only PayKickstart support went above and beyond to personally help me fix the issue and move forward.
To me, quality support means a lot.
They are also the most innovative of compared to
ANY shopping cart out there. PK has a ton of functionality that makes being a vendor and/or an affiliate a super smooth process.
The results so far in a short time are already $45,000 from using PayKickstart. Love it!

My experience with PayKickstart!
PayKickstart’s support has been magnificent!
Jeff J. Hunter
I love PayKickstart! I’ve already sold over $500,000 through the shopping cart. It’s such a critical part of my business. Thanks guys!
Such a badass platform!
We are still kicking ourselves for not starting
Our biz with PayKickstart!
We’re absolutely thrilled we are with PayKickstart! Your support staff bent over backwards to help us and made our software integrations work – was civility personified.
Our business has been online for over 15 years and we have NEVER received such first class customer support in all those years.
Paykickstart is a fabulous blessing to my business! From tracking sales to making funnels to connecting me with other people who can bless my business as affiliates. Paykickstart encompasses the necessary tools that a serious business owner needs today and does it in an easy-to-operate platform. The support team is friendly and fast to respond! I highly recommend Paykickstart!!!
Before PayKickStart I was piecing together a lot of free tools. Affiliate program, payment proccesser, upsell software. I’m really good at html so I made my own makeshift upsell funnel myself.
Now that I have PayKickStart I can easily manage my education products and upsell them easily. Now I can manage my 5 products without needing “approval” or anything like that. And for the price, it’s an incredible value for money. It’s a true asset, and I love it. PayKickStart ended a long battle of where to host my products and how to sell them!
I have been using Pay Kickstart as an affiliate now for about a month.
My partner Paul James and I were able to
bypass transaction fees and
easily track revenue being generated from course sales.
worked perfectly for getting folks enrolled in our membership site.
I’m celebrating here because O kist tested and everything is working!!! people who purchases go to Teachable directly! Thank YOU!
I cannot believe I made all this by myself 😛
I’m soooo happy I trust my gut and went with you guys!
Great support is hard to come by! PKS is a rarity in this space.
Everything I need in my business is right in PayKickstart!
PayKickstart is a game changer!
Thank You Mark and Matt and the whole PayKickstart Team!
PayKickstart is very simple and easy to use!
Hey! I’m almost done with our trial. Love the platfrom. We’ve got about 100 customers and did $4,000 in revenue & just paid our first commissions today.
Thanks Mark Thompson and the entire team. This has been a real blessing for our company.
I’m just about to launch a program and using PayKickstart for payment and affiliate program and got to say really impressed. Great support and all questions answered..
I have a lot of experience with sales and marketing funnel set up so will be happy to contribute if I can.
PayKickstart saved me $20,000 a year!
It blew my mind. I now use it for all of my online and offline businesses.

I have used PayKickstart for a long time and they have helped me achieve my goals. The language barrier has been broken and to achieve success they are transcending borders.
Thanks so much for helping us make more sales!
There’s no way anyone would ever regret subscribing to Paykickstart.
Its amazing how honest you are how much you want to see your clients succeed! Paykickstart is indeed more about the success of their clients than anything else.
“PayKickstart has four potentially underrated features…
1. Support is amazing. Fast… this is extremely valuable when working inside the feature rich program and need help to keep moving.
2. I really like it that the Founders are coal face involved offering support from their point of view in the Facebook Group community support.
3. Continual improvement. Shows me the business has strength to keep developing.
4. Feature rich. It’s not until deep inside the program that you realize the value of features. It’s BY FAR the most feature rich shopping cart available.”
REALLY Well done guys! ,
hats off to you all, I’m super happy
I’m moving all of my products to your platform and proud to start promoting this on my crowd…
Though I may be a little jealous someone has built the tool I always wanted to create before me. Nice work!
