Benefits of Direct Debit payments

Reliable income

You set the date of the collection so you know when cleared funds will be deposited into your account. These regular payments mean you can forecast and manage cash flow more accurately.

Reduces attrition

Direct Debits are easy and convenient for your payers, reducing the risk of them moving to another organisation or expiring card details.

Greater efficiency

You control the payment dates, amounts and frequency of payments. Any changes are controlled by you so you won’t be held up waiting for your payer to contact their bank.

Cost effective

Direct Debits are cheaper to process than cheques or other payment methods.


Direct Debit is the United Kingdom’s preferred method for making regular payments, with almost 9 out of 10 adults having at least 1 Direct Debit commitment.


Direct Debit enables you to collect variable amounts on regular or irregular dates.

“One of the major benefits has been the access to a portal where we can check supporter details, this has made the process of administering our lottery much simpler and helped us give a really great experience to our donors.”
