The hassle-free, no excuses way to get paid with GoCardless

Many businesses struggle to get their invoices paid on time with research showing that around 30% of UK invoices are paid late.

This figure increases for small businesses with 60% saying they regularly have invoices paid late. In the current economic climate, this can mean the difference between businesses surviving or not. Payments shouldn’t be this hard.

Joe Sharpe from Installer spoke to Marios Dixon from GoCardless, who explained the benefits of direct debit over other payment methods, and how they connect with partners including Xero, Quickbooks and Sage.
