Frequently asked questions
What is Direct Debit?
Direct Debit is an automated payment method that allows you to pull payment directly from your customers' bank accounts. The system has two key features, from which almost everything else follows. Firstly, Direct Debit is pull based, meaning once given a mandate by your customer, you can initiate Direct Debit payments. Secondly, Direct Debit payments are bank-to-bank, meaning there are no card networks involved in the Direct Debit scheme, which helps to keep costs low.
How do I use Direct Debit with QuickBooks Online?
Our integration allows you to collect payments via Direct Debit. Once you have setup Direct Debit mandates with your customers, all you need to do is send the invoice from within QuickBooks Online and the rest is handled automatically.
