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

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

Success+ uses payment intelligence to retry payments on the best day for each customer. Recover, on average, 70% of failed payments.
