When we launched Paddle 6 years ago, we operated as a software marketplace, helping both software sellers and buyers connect. Software buyers could create a Paddle personal account, and log into their account on the Checkout to pay.
This made sense at the time. 6 years later, this has turned into a legacy feature that is barely used and no longer represents a great way to speed up a purchase. Passwords are lost or forgotten, innovations like Apple Pay are introduced...
We simply believe we can help you run and grow better without it, and as bonus ship faster without the burden of a legacy feature.
We are turning off all sign-up and sign-in functionality for buyers on our Checkout. We don't expect you to see any impact but as usual simply reach out if you'd like to chat.
