FAQ

Why “Paipa”?

I was looking for a nice and not too technical name for this product. I don’t remember how I came up with Paipa, but it should definitely be a name with a P. And then I found out that Paipa is a city in Colombia. I kind of liked it.

How many users are included in your monthly rate?

A maximum of 20 users can log in per tenant. Suppliers and later customers communicate with Paipa via a unique link. So they are not counted as users.

What is a tenant?

The company or freelancer who has subscribed to Paipa.

Do you offer a trial period?

No. A trial period makes no sense because it would be quite time-consuming to enter test data and create and manage fictitious projects, customers and suppliers, prices, etc. Instead, we’re considering publishing a video of the key features or developing an interactive demo.
