10–15% of card payments fail

10–15% of all credit and debit card payments will fail, because cards are lost, expire, or are rejected by issuing banks. And every failed payment needs to be retried and rectified, adding to the admin burden of collecting payments.

Before, we would manually be chasing every failed payment in the same way. With GoCardless, we can avoid chasing and having those awkward conversations when we don’t need to."

GoCardless is built on Direct Debit, a bank-to-bank payment method, and has a low failure rate of around 2.5% at the first collection attempt. With bank debit, bank accounts don’t expire, so customer details rarely need updating.

How GoCardless works

Your customer enters their payment details securely online, authorising you to collect payments by Direct Debit. You can add the customisable payment page to your website or send them a secure link.

Schedule one-off or recurring payments using our dashboard, or enable GoCardless to “pull” payments automatically on invoice due dates by linking GoCardless to your existing invoicing software.

One-time customer setup

GoCardless uses Direct Debit, meaning payments are collected automatically on due dates. You can also connect GoCardless to one of over 200 partner integrations to automate payment reconciliation.
