Standing orders give you control. Direct Debit gives you flexibility and safety
Standing orders are good for regular payments of a fixed amount. However, if you want to pay variable amounts or might need to change payment amounts then standing orders are not the most practical option.
Direct Debit lets you pay variable amounts or at varying intervals without needing to do anything more. This makes it great for paying bills where you are charged depending on what you have spent that week.
Direct Debit is the safest way to make payments in the UK. The Direct Debit Guarantee gives you a right to immediate refunds for any payments which shouldn't have been taken.
GoCardless is the UK’s leading Direct Debit provider and is used by over 2,000 organisations. GoCardless is sponsored by RBS and is authorised by the FCA.
