Made for recurring payments

GoCardless collects Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) payments for your Xero invoices.

How GoCardless for Xero works


Invite your Xero customers to setup Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD)

To start collecting payments, your customer will need to complete an online Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) form. We offer simple ways to invite new and existing Xero customers by link or editable email.

  • Option to automatically invite new customers
  • Add a 'Pay now' button to your invoices

Your customer completes a one-time PAD form

Your customer completes this online PAD authorization form with their bank details. This gives you permission to collect payment from their bank account without further action from your customer.

  • One time set-up for your customer
  • Payment page branded with your logo
  • All online. No paperwork

Collect payments automatically or manually for any Xero invoice

Each time you create an invoice in Xero you can collect the payment automatically by PAD on the invoice due date. Alternatively, you can manually collect payments for specific customers or by Xero branding themes. 

  • Collect variable or fixed amounts
  • Option to collect payment in instalments
  • Collect international payments with built-in FX.

Your customer will be notified before every payment is collected

Now that a PAD is in place with your customer, GoCardless will email your customers in advance before every payment is collected.

  • No action required from your customer
  • Payments protected by ACSS rules.

Payments will be automatically reconciled in Xero

Once you’ve received a payment, the relevant invoice(s) will be marked as paid with the GoCardless fee posted as an expense automatically.

  • No manual bookkeeping
  • Notifications for failed payments
  • Notifications for cancelled PADs

Benefits for your customers

  • Quick one-time set up They complete an online form to authorise payments, and will be notified before every payment is collected.
  • Saves time and effort No more having to remember when a payment is due, trips to the bank or updating expired card details.
