    So each transaction they charge a min of £1.00 then you have to wait 7 business days to get your money tranfered into your bank account?

    No, you have to wait 5 days. The charges are around half of what paypal charge.

    Why not just ask your customers to do a bank transfer. No charges either

    koopmaster lets say you do 200 transactions a month that's £2,400 a year at least you would be giving to gocardless when a bank transfer like scrim it mentioned costs you nothing. Makes you think does it not?

    The main reason for using gocardless is because YOU have the control. You take the money via direct debit not the customer....

    I got charged 12p for £13 so for a whole year the fees cant be that much... plus its better that me driving around all Saturday or Sunday collecting which would work out to Thousands if I add up all the hours I spend collecting..
