GoCardless enables your members to pay for services and memberships directly from OfficeRnD using Direct Debit transactions. Before we dive into details, you might want to check what other payment gateway integrations we offer.
How to Set Up The Integration:
- You have to create an account on https://gocardless.com/. Follow the steps to set it up. If you already have an account, please proceed to step 2.
- Sign in to your GoCardless account.
- Navigate to Settings/Integrations in OfficeRnD.
- Go to Payment Gateways and find GoCardless. Click Add.
- Click on the Connect button next to GoCardless in OfficeRnD and enter your GoCardless credentials.
- Click on Configure.
You can enable 'Auto Sync', in order to let OfficeRnD and GoCardless sync data automatically. 'Transaction duration' is the number of days needed for the payment transaction to close. This value is used to define how many days in advance an invoice should be charged so that the payment can be collected on time for the invoice Due Date. The default value is 0.
- Click Done.
GoCardless limit their charges to be under 5000 units by default. This means that automatic (or manual) charges on invoices for more than 5000 units (of your currency) will fail when submitted to GoCardless. You can either manually charge the invoice with multiple charges (let's say it's for 6000 EUR, you can submit 2 transactions with 3000 EUR each) or you can reach out to GoCardless support and ask them to increase your limit.
An Additional Note:
There is an important thing that should be taken under consideration regarding the Direct Debit set up. When GoCardless is connected with OfficeRnD, the admins need to send a mandate setup request to the members/companies, in order for a Direct Debit to be set up in OfficeRnD. If the companies/members already exist in the integration, there is no need to add another mandate set up, but only a sync is needed. The mandate set up is between the companies/members and GoCardless - once it is done it is irrelevant how it is used (OfficeRnD or the space owners manually charging directly in GoCardless).
