    Hi, I am considering Wave as a platform for a new SAAS project. 
    
    But I am worried about the lack of support. Do you guys know any tutorials beside the ones that are included on devdojo? 
    
    Furthermore did some of you have success in building a fully functional SAAS application? 
    
    Finally I would like to say, that it would be nice to always be able to see the current status of this project.

    I'll be brutally honest - the script itself is great, the support however is terrible.
    
    I at one point wanted a refund and was flat out ignored for weeks, I got a response asking what my issues were, I told him (Tony) and he just ignored them all over again. No refund, no fixes, nothing. I'm yet to recieve a response.
    
    Now there have been serious changes to the way Stripe handles payments in the EU, effectively breaking checkout for some clients when using the version of Laravel Cashier that Wave ships with. 
    
    I raised the concern, Tony said "a few days" and 5 days later there's still nothing - and yes, you guessed it, no further word of even an update even after numerous posts asking for some clarity.
    
    All in all, it's a great script but lacks both updates and activity from the dev. If you feel as though you'll need even 5 minutes of support, stay away.

    john-dyas, thank you for your input. 
    
    I see that he (Tony) apprently is working on a new project called: https://saasadventure.io/
    
    Not sure if it's directly related to wave, seems to be based on Vue and Tailwind. 
    
    This is quite strange, why spend a lot of time on developing a system, and then just leave your audience in the dark.

    Sad to say that I have to agree with @john-dyas. Support and development has been pretty much dead and when I saw the new project, it was like a punch in the gut. Seems all the effort is being directed there at the moment. 
    I went with Wave wanting to avoid the complexity of Spark, but there were so much bugs left unfixed. I'll even go as far as saying that I probably should've gone with Spark and just picked up an opinionated base but works and is in constant development.
    
    I mean I'm all in for supporting Tony for creating products and other side projects. 
    But having this as a paid product and then seemingly with no intention of support feels like betrayal.

    Yep, really a shame. 
    
    I saw Tony today uploaded a new video for his new course - clearly that's where his attention is, unfortunately.

    I agree with you guys. Yes it's a shame. It's too risky to start developing a system that is relying on 1 person. When you are charging for a product like this, you would have to have a team around you, taking care of on-going development and support. I don't know if this is the case here. 
    
    I saw a tutorial about Saas on codecourse. I wonder if it would be possible to develop your own Saas boilerplate on top of Voyager? What's your opinion about Voyager in generel? I see mixed online reviews.

    Hi guys!
    
    Facing this supports issue, would you guys recommend another SaaS boilerplate?
    
    I've seeing a few libraries to start a SaaS project, but at least for now, on the ones which I've seen, the users are treated as recurring subscribers, but the business model for the project which I'm working on must combine credit account and "pay as you go".
    
    It has being hard to absorb the concept by looking through supposed SaaS tutorials which develop Blogs, by the way, does anybody has a guess why most of the SaaS tutorials are made about blogs?

    These "educators" taking our money with no intent for delivering must be called out.
    
    Tony, I respectfully ask for a refund.
