When you signed up for HubSpot, you thought you were ready to conquer the world!

HubSpot promises impressive capabilities, but there is one problem.

HubSpot has no built-in feature that allows you to accept one-time or recurring payments. 

It doesn't have to be perfect; you only need a few features; 

  • It isn't expensive
  • Credible and reliable
  • Increases sales 

In this article, we'll explain the differences between Cartfuel and Despositfix. 

Both are payment solutions that connects with HubSpot and integrates with Stripe or PayPal. 

The goal of this article is for you to be better informed on which tool you should use when it comes to accepting payments with HubSpot.

Let's dive into it. 

DepositFix is a third-party integration that connects to the HubSpot CRM. With DepositFix you can accept payments with HubSpot forms.

How much do Cartfuel and Deposit cost?

Cartfuel and Depositfix have vastly different pricing models.

Let's start with Cartfuel:

cartfuel-pricing

Cartfuel is a payment platform that connects with the HubSpot CRM. 

 As a result, you can make one-time or recurring payments and receive sales data from HubSpot. 

You can sign up for a 14-day free trial, and after that, you'll pay $97 per month plus 0% per transaction fees.

They also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee with no questions asked.

Now let's take a look at DeposifFix:

depositfix-pricing

Depositfix is available globally. After a free trial, you'll need to pay $197 per month for the first $50,000 in revenue. After that, every $50,000 of additional income will cost $50 more per month.

For example, if your business does $500,000 in revenue per month, you will pay over $600 to use Depositfix. 

Compared to Cartfuel, which does not charge more fees, Depositfix will cost you a considerable amount. 

You get unlimited payment forms in both Cartfuel's and Depositfix's plans.

Third-Party Integrations

The next step in our comparison is to look at the integrations available with each plugin.

Each app can connect to HubSpot. Once connected, your sales will appear in the HubSpot contact activity timeline. 

The difference in each app is the connectivity to other apps. Depositfix doesn't have any different integrations besides the HubSpot integration. 

Comparatively, Cartfuel can connect to Zapier, Rewardful, Kajabi, ActiveCampaign, Klaviyo and Sendfox. 

With Cartfuel's Zapier integration, you can connect to over 500 marketing apps giving you more flexibility in what you can achieve. 

Both apps allow you to embed the payment form on any website including HubSpot pages.

How You Can Increase Sales

Outside of the integrations, there are some other differentiating features we'd like to discuss. 

Cartfuel does not have a donation feature for starters, whereas Depositfix does. 

Depositfix also has a billing portal. The portal makes it easy for your customers to cancel subscriptions. 

Cartfuel does not have a billing portal but other ways to make you more money. 

These ways include:

  1. One-click Upsells
  2. Order Bumps
  3. Countdown Timers

Let's discuss each feature one-by-one so you can understand what they do. 

One-Click Upsells

Ever go to McDonald's, and the hostess asks you if you want fries with your order? That's what an upsell is. 

After your customers purchase the initial product, you have the option to sell them more products. The customer does not have to reenter their credit or debit card information. 

They click a button, and whatever product your selling gets added to their order. This feature allows you to make up to %25 more in revenue, increasing your average order value. 

One-click upsells are critical for businesses that sell front-end products expecting to make more on the backend. 

The one-click upsell feature works on any page or site without any code. You copy and paste the code Cartfuel provides, and it works like magic.

Order Bumps

Order Bumps are a way to sell more products to your customers at the initial step (before the one-click upsells).

They often look like this:

Countdown Timer

You can sell a product with or without a discount for a specific time with countdown timers. With this feature, sell more due to scarcity. 

Each of these features gives you and your business an extra bump of revenue without you having to do much.

And because Cartfuel doesn't penalize you with extra fees, all the additional revenue is yours to keep. 

Who Can Use Depositfix?

Depositfix is best used if you intend to:

  • Sell events
  • Sell courses
  • Sell services
  • Sell digital products
  • Sell subscriptions
  • Accept donations
  • Send invoices

Who Can Use Cartfuel?

Cartfuel is best used if you intend to:

  • Sell an online course
  • Sell digital products
  • Sell services like consulting or coaching
  • Sell physical products
  • Sell subscriptions
  • Accept donations
  • And  (almost) anything else you can imagine

How To Start Selling On HubSpot Using Cartfuel

You need to connect your Hubspot account to Cartfuel before starting using Cartfuel. By clicking on the install app from HubSpot's app marketplace, you can do this. 

As soon as you connect your HubSpot account to Cartfuel, you can connect your Stripe account. 

When you connect Stripe to Cartfuel, you will create a payment form. When you create a payment form, you have the option of selling a one-time product or recurring products. If you want, you can even sell multiple products using one form. 

Aside from adding multiple products, you can also add revenue boosters such as order bumps and one-click upsells. With these two features, you can offer more products to your customers without any additional work. 

You can customize the payment form after adding your products, whether one-time or recurring. On the payment form, you can change the font, the color of the buttons, and the text. 

You can then embed the payment form on any website or landing page, including HubSpot landing pages, once you're done setting it up.
