Direct Debits – Step 3 – Collecting Payments

← Back to Step 2

This article describes how to collect payments via direct debit. You will need to have GoCardless set up and a direct debit mandate set up for the customer.

On an unpaid invoice

If the customer has a direct debit mandate set up with you and has an unpaid invoice, you can collect the funds immediately. Just click Invoices > Select the invoice > Click the “Bank Payment” button.

  2. Then click Create and enter in all the appropriate details.
  3. At the bottom you’ll see a option labeled ‘Duration’ – simply tick ‘Collect via Bank Payment’, then press Save.
