Your high DSO is stopping you from growing

Your high DSO is stopping you from growing

A high DSO and a growing list of outstanding receivables limits your brand’s ability to invest for the future.

Everything just works… It’s now a one or two touch billing process, once a month. We don’t need to think or worry about it anymore.”

John Heggs, Finance Manager, intY

Gain full control over payment collection

GoCardless is built on bank debit, a pull-based payment method. This puts you in control of when payments are collected, giving you full oversight of your accounts receivable.

  • Pull-based payment collection

    GoCardless is built on bank debit, a pull-based, bank-to-bank payment method that allows businesses to pull payments directly from their customers’ bank accounts.

  • Low payment failure rates

    With GoCardless, around 97.5% of payments will be collected successfully at the first time of asking. With real-time reporting, know instantly when a payment does fail so you can take action.

  • Intelligent retries

    Sit back and let Success+ retry payments on the optimal day to collect from each customer. Recover up to 76% of any payments that do fail with Success+.

One-time payment setup

How GoCardless works

Customers set up their payment details online, authorizing you to collect bank debit payments - such as ACH debit payments in the US - from their bank account. Customize our pre-built payment pages or integrate with your existing checkout.

One-time payment setup

Provide choice and flexibility by enabling customers to set their own collection dates and payment schedules for their bank debit payments (such as ACH debit payments in the US).

One-time payment setup

Your customers will be automatically notified at the start of the payment schedule. Connect GoCardless to your billing or subscription software to manage the process through your existing systems.

One-time payment setup

Edit subscriptions in a matter of clicks or through your existing systems. Make upgrades, downgrades and one-off charges without your customers needing to lift a finger.
