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.
