GoCardless began when its founders saw an opportunity to improve the existing bank-to-bank payments system, Direct Debit. Although a highly trusted payment method, Direct Debit was slow, difficult to access, difficult to use and reliant on inefficient legacy systems. Thanks to technology, GoCardless brought Direct Debit into the digital age and is making payments work better for all businesses, from sole traders and startups to large corporations such as Thomas Cook and the Financial Times. Taking payments with GoCardless has many benefits, from simple online setup to fully flexible payment integrations with leading cloud accounting and billing platforms. At present, GoCardless serves more than 20,000 businesses across the UK and Europe, with further growth planned.
