how Direct Debit works
Once a Direct Debit is in place, it is the merchant who initiates the payments. The customer doesn't have to do anything.
It is the merchant who decides when the money comes out and how much they are going to take. Naturally, the customer has to be informed first!
And the transaction is entirely bank-to-bank. There are no cards involved and all communication happens strictly between the banks.
