Made for recurring payments

GoCardless collects Direct Debit payments for your Xero invoices.

How GoCardless for Xero works

1

Invite your Xero customers to setup a Direct Debit

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.

  • Option to automatically invite new customers
  • Add a 'Pay by Direct Debit' button to your invoices
2

Your customer completes a one-time Direct Debit form

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.

  • One time set-up for your customer
  • Payment page branded with your logo
  • All online. No paperwork
3

Collect payments automatically or manually for any Xero invoice

Each time you create an invoice in Xero you can collect the payment automatically by Direct Debit 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.
4

Your customer will be notified before every payment is collected

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

5

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 Direct Debits

Benefits for your customers
