To coincide with our new Forrester report, Rethink Your Payment Strategy To Save Your Customers And Bottom Line, we invited our friends from the Guardian and Quandoo to sit down and chat with us about their payment challenges.

In a world of technology advancements, businesses are constantly evolving to serve their customers. Recurring revenue models, like subscriptions or consumption-based models have become key to this evolution.

Forrester surveyed 700 payment decision makers to evaluate the state of recurring payments across the globe, and found the B2B recurring payment landscape is becoming increasingly complex. This can result in lost customers, payment failures, high costs, and lower revenue impacting the wider business.

GoCardless Director of Product Marketing, Siamac Rezaeizadeh, was joined by GoCardless CFO, Catherine Birkett, The Guardian News & Media’s Amanda Michel, and Quandoo’s Diego Passarela, to discuss this topic further, dig into some of the most interesting statistics, and explore how it applies to their businesses.

  2. 4 out of 5 firms say that it takes them more than a month to receive payment.

  3. Half of all businesses have a failure rate of higher than 7%.
