We’re building the payments network for the internet.
Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could never previously use it. We already process over $1bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations: small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Financial Times use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: we want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
Over the last year, we’ve expanded our offering for larger organisations, like the Guardian and the UK Government. We’ve also added European Direct Debit schemes, so multinational companies can collect payments across Europe with ease. We’ve recently launched in France and Germany, and in the coming year we’ll continue our global expansion, as we create a global network for recurring payments.
