GoCardless collects Direct Debit payments for your Xero invoices.
To start collecting payments, your customer will need to complete an online Direct Debit form. We offer simple ways to invite new and existing Xero customers by link or editable email.
Your customer completes this online Direct Debit form with their bank details. This gives you authorisation to collect payment from their bank account without further action from your customer.
Each time you create an invoice in Xero you can collect the payment automatically by Bank Direct Debit on the invoice due date. Alternatively, you can manually collect payments for specific customers or by Xero branding themes.
Now that a Bank Direct Debit is in place with your customer, GoCardless will email your customers in advance before every payment is collected.
Once you’ve received a payment, the relevant invoice(s) will be marked as paid with the GoCardless fee posted as an expense automatically.
GoCardless is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the United Kingdom as an Authorised Payment Institution to collect payments across Europe.
