Gocardless is a company which was founded in 2011, with a global focus on allowing customers and companies to set up recurring direct debits that suit us both. Specifically, for window cleaning, the advantages are clear, you have a multinational company who collects the payments, and importantly only after the job has been done each month! Gocardless works with many companies such as Thomas Cook and Virgin, in fact Thomas Cook were recently using gocardless to allow customers to pay up holiday bookings
IS IT SAFE TO USE
Yes, on many levels. As a direct debit, you have guarantees in place by law, gocardless is a direct debit scheme. One which guarantee not everyone knows about is that on the small print of all direct debit guarantees it says “The direct debit guarantee protects customers from payments taken in error. In the case of an incorrect or fraudulent payment, the payer is entitled to a full and immediate refund from their bank”. We personally have 100s of customers using gocardless, and because all customers receive a notification before any money can be taken by gocardless there is never an issue. Gocardless have a great reputation and are a growing company.
