Hi, I'm Carlos from Quaderno.io


#1

Hi everybody! I am Carlos Hernandez, founder of Quaderno.io.

I bootstrapped my first startup in 2010. Over the last 4 years we’ve grown to 4 people with no external funds. Now I’m starting a new and passionate adventure with Quaderno.io, an invoicing application for Stripe.

Quaderno.io automatically sends an invoice to you customer every time you make a charge on Stripe. That’s all! No code. No VAT handling. No pain :wink:

I live between Berlin and Las Palmas (Canary Islands). I’m an Internet guy, who loves tea, travelling, and the digital-nomad life.

I hope I can help others in the group learn from my experiences and at the same time learn from others’ experiences.

Cheers, Carlos

Sounds very useful.

May I ask though, why only Stripe? How about Fastspring? Other payment processors?

I.e. why do you limit your solution? Is invoicing so different between payment processors?


#3

No, invoicing is the same, but I decided to start with Stripe because their API is awesome and very easy to use.
I have plans to integrate more payment gateways in the future. Let’s see if people is interested in a solution like this.

@polimorfico I’m looking at https://stripe.com/docs/integrations - you’re on it but you don’t mention VAT at all. I’d get that changed if I were you, there are only 3x hits for “VAT” on that page and you are not one of them.

You’re right! Thanks for warning Ewen!!

Hi @polimorfico, how are things going now? Still 4 people in team?

Pretty well, thanks!! We’re now five people and growing :slight_smile:
