Who is it for?

GoCardless is made for businesses that bill their customers on a recurring basis. It’s ideal for collecting payment for both intermittent and repeating invoices as well as subscriptions, retainers and instalments.

How does GoCardless work?

GoCardless is a bank-to-bank payment method. It uses Direct Debit, ACH and PAD to automatically collect payments directly from your customer’s bank account.

Your customers only need to enter their payments details once, and that’s it. You’re authorised to collect all future payments without further action from your customer.

The amount you charge and when you charge can be fixed or flexible. In fact, it’s linked to the amount and due date on the Xero invoice you’ve sent your customer. Payments happen frictionlessly in the background.

How does it work with Xero?

Simple setup You can create an account from this page or directly within Xero. Once connected to Xero, it’s simple and secure to set your customers up to pay via GoCardless. Then, just send out your invoices and GoCardless can automatically collect payment when they are due.

One-click reconciliation Once invoice payment has been collected via GoCardless, the invoice is marked as ‘paid’ and an expense transaction is added for the GoCardless fee. Reconciling your payment can then be done with a single click!

Limited to no support

Dear Go Cardless - and I presume this is an automated AI response To give context _ I had a problem with my stripe payments I jumped on to the Stripe site, logged in and asked for help within 3 minutes!!!! I had received a call back phone call, had an amazing person who helped me through the issues - RESOLVED! And now I am back in business Gocardless by comparison is just a bunch of idiotic emails which look like an AI bot GoCardless is a waste of time I am not proceeding with setting up Go cardless
