Who GoCardless is for
How GoCardless works
Collecting Direct Debit payments with GoCardless is easy:
- One-time customer setup - Your customer enters their payment details securely online, authorising you to collect payments by Direct Debit. You can do this by sending a secure link from your QuickFile account.
- Schedule payments - Once the one-time customer setup is complete, all future single or recurring invoices sent to that customer from QuickFile will have the option to collect the payment automatically.
- Get paid automatically - Because GoCardless uses Direct Debit, payments are collected automatically on the due date. But that’s not all - reconciliation is completed within QuickFile automatically.
- Keep track - You’ll have full visibility of all payments. And, on average, GoCardless collects 97.5% of payments successfully on the first try.
New! A better way to collect one-off payments
Bank transfers are slow and admin-heavy. Cards are expensive and failure-prone. So GoCardless built something better - Instant Bank Pay, powered by open banking.
Unlike manual bank transfers, you initiate the payment process with Instant Bank Pay. So you don’t have to wait on your customers to get things going. And payment confirmation is instant, so you can deliver your goods or services straight away, with peace of mind.
How it works:
When you send your customer an invoice, they choose to “Pay now” via GoCardless. They are seamlessly connected to their online banking portal or mobile banking app. All the transaction details are pre-populated. Your customer just needs to click to approve, and payment confirmation is fast.
Here’s an example of the payment flow your customers could experience:
