About GoCardless

We’re bringing Direct Debit into the digital age, building the best system for taking recurring payments.

GoCardless is creating a new international payments network to rival credit and debit cards. Our ambition is to break down barriers so businesses can quickly and easily take payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.

We currently process £3bn worth of transactions for over 25,000 organisations across the UK and Europe - and we’re growing fast. With clients ranging from small businesses to household names such as Thomas Cook, TripAdvisor and the Guardian, GoCardless brings together a range of Direct Debit schemes across the UK and Europe. We’re already well-established in the UK, France, Germany, Sweden and Spain, with more schemes and markets soon to follow.

Direct Debit is the most effective way to take recurring payments in Europe, offering lower failure rates and fees, along with increased flexibility compared to using credit or debit cards. Using Direct Debit via GoCardless allows businesses to take complete control of payments, either using the online dashboard, through one of the GoCardless partner integrations, or by building a tailored integration using the powerful GoCardless API.

GoCardless is London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Notion Capital, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
