An intuitive API with built-in Direct Debit logic at its core

We've created an API optimised for Direct Debit, so that you can craft powerful integrations with less development time. Integrate as much or as little as you need, at once or over time.

Automatic Direct Debit logic

  • Direct Debit timings built-in for automatic calculation of next available charge date
  • Ready to use subscriptions logic eliminates the need to build from scratch

Reduced errors and failures

  • Unique request tokens reduce duplicate payments through idempotency keys
  • Automatic bank validation checks for lower payment failure rates

Compliance ensured

  • Pre-built notification templates for clear, compliant, ready to use emails
  • PDF mandates generated automatically and pre-filled with customer details
