paperless Direct Debit
Even though the process of creating a Direct Debit is straightforward, we wanted to make the process even easier so we have developed a ‘paper free’ set up process which is perfect if you are signing up lots of clients.
The majority of businesses we work with opt for either telephone sign up where they input the customer’s details directly, or by asking customers to fill in a Direct Debit Mandate form on your website.
Once we have the account details and we know how much too collect and when, you can leave the rest to us. Once the Direct Debit has cleared into your own dedicated account at Eazipay we will transfer it to your own business account. The whole process takes about three working days.
Before any Direct Debit can begin, however, it has to be authorised by the consumer and is done in the form of a Direct Debit Mandate, or Direct Debit Instruction.
The Mandate takes the shape of a standard form, which makes it easy for both new and experienced customers to fill in, and guess what? It too is paperless and can be completed over the phone, or by filling in a form online.
Amongst other things, the Mandate authorises the supplier to collect any amount at any time, provided the customer has been notified first.
All payments are covered by the Direct Debit Guarantee, which protects customers from any payments which are taken by mistake or fraudulently.
Naturally, most customers will have signed up with the idea of making a regular fixed payment, so these prior notifications and the Direct Debit Guarantee provide two useful ways of safeguarding customers' interests.
