Noticed a transaction on your bank statement to PADDLE.NET?
Or maybe a PADDLE.COM charge?
Don't worry, these charges are usually legitimate payments that have been done yourself, but sometimes it's hard to identify the vendor at a later date.
Here at Fresh Lead Finder we use Paddle to process subscription payments within our app. We show up as PADDLE.NET* FRESHL on bank statements.
Or some close variation of that. Every bank is different.
Here's an example:
Tips for Paddle charges:
Paddle is a subscription billing software and payment processor for B2B SaaS.
So if you're using any cloud-based apps or software, such as our own lead generation software, then your payment is probably for that. But it's worth double-checking.
Paddle don't just process credit and debit card payments.
They also support PayPal payments.
Paddle also act as a Merchant of Record (MOR) for their vendors.
If you notice a paddle com charge or paddle net charge, don't be concerned.
Look for clues in the transaction reference on your bank statement or PayPal, and then run it through your email inbox to see if anything comes back.
Whatever you do, don't file a chargeback.
This can potentially negatively affect vendors if it happens too often.
