Provide an instant banking option for your customers to pay for their invoices. This offers reduced fees in comparison to credit/debit card transactions.

With the combination of the GoCardless and Stripe integrations working hand in hand, you can set limits as to when the option to pay by card is automatically hidden based on the value payable within the Invoice portal. This gives you the peace of mind that no changes to emails or payment links are needed.

A Payment method is required for integration setup.

GoCardless 🔗️ Instant bank pay is supported for use in Commusoft's self service portals and🔗️ Payment is supported for setting up Direct Debits.

Payment reference is generated by GoCardless and is searchable within their platform.

GoCardless requires an accurate customer postcode to take payments.
