Instant Bank Pay for:
Gyms, health and fitness clubs
Learn how Instant Bank Pay can help your users better manage their payments. Saving themselves time, cost, and stress.
Collect a joining fee and setup a Direct Debit mandate in one smooth flow.
Direct Debit is great for gyms and clubs to collect recurring membership fees, but it takes too long to process an upfront joining fee. Which leaves them relying on fee-heavy card payments.
With Instant Bank Pay, your users can offer a simple payment flow that takes an instantly-authorised, one-off payment. Either standalone, or together with a Direct Debit mandate setup.
Smooth sign up process for new members
No need to split payments across cards and Direct Debit. With Instant Bank Pay, GoCardless can now collect instant payments too.
