The problem

Metering and billing are still nightmares

Numerous edge cases. Constant pricing changes. Looming scalability issues.

For Engineers

Have all the edge cases been covered? Metering per second, pre-aggregation, data clean-up, custom plans, scalability for growth... There are too many topics to list them all.

For Revenue leaders

The average startup sees a 20% bump in ARR when iterating on pricing*. Don’t let your metering and billing system prevent you from improving your pricing and increasing ARR.

For Finance teams

Clunky data reprocessing, invoicing mistakes, tedious reporting tasks and above all, the anxiety of having missed another detail that had to be addressed manually.

The solution

Composable metering and billing

Usage monitoring

Plug-and-play metering

Tired of pre-aggregating and cleaning data, so that it can be used for billing? Skip this step. Connect your data sources to Lago, as they are, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Scalable and low-maintenance

Out-of-the-box billing system

Our billing product includes a first-class API for engineers and a pixel-perfect user interface for business teams. Everything we build, you won’t have to build yourself: subscription, usage computations, billing cycles, dates, currencies, etc.

More control

Composability and security

We’re open-source, so it’s not ‘buy Lago or build it yourself’, there’s a third option: you can build on top of Lago. Audit our code and keep your data within your infrastructure, if you want full control.


Loved by engineers around the globe

Most engineers don’t want to become... billing engineers.

Big fan of Lago's work. Payments and billing create huge underrated nightmares for engineers. With their open-source approach, Lago can help solve the long tail of challenges.

Lago provides a solid foundation for Billing engineers to build on and customize to their needs. The team is super reactive and experienced in the space too!

Joel Taylor

Sr. Billing Engineer at Github

Billing has millions of edge cases. But it’s also a ‘talent nightmare’. No CTO wants to staff their engineers on billing, and no engineers want to work on this on the long term.

I just wish Lago existed five years ago, so that my team could build on top of their API and go back to building our core product asap.

I wish Lago existed when we started Algolia.

We've revamped our billing stack three times and even went through a failed implementation with Zuora. We totally underestimated the complexity of billing at the time, and our needs were too specific for closed-source vendors.

Don't spend time, effort and money on things that do not bring business value. Any time I see a company with engineers building something they could buy off the shelf [and the thing they're building is not the product] I know their priorities are whack. […]

Just because a tractor is used for farming doesn't mean a farmer should build her own tractor.
