Company Details


GoCardless is a UK-based service that allows smaller merchants to easily set up interbank transfers for customers.

Online payments used to be expensive and time-consuming. GoCardless is changing that.

GoCardless ( is a next generation payments company. We make it incredibly cheap and easy for anyone to take payments online using the Direct Debit infrastructure.

Our industry-beating pricing (1% up to a maximum of £2), easy payment collection (we automate reconciliation into your accounts) and instant online sign-up mean that we are rapidly becoming the preferred online direct debit option for businesses.

We are a rapidly-growing, highly technical team based in London. Combining years of financial services experience with a customer-driven approach, we are transforming online payments and the direct debit industry.

We are sponsored by RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland) and regulated by the FSA (Financial Services Authority).
