GoCardless teams up with TransferWise to launch service for recurring payments

In Brief

  • The new global network will help customers manage subscriptions, invoices and other recurring payments in a simple and transparent manner.
  • It will allow GoCardless customers to collect payments via multiple bank debit schemes around the world, using APIs, and so avoid having to navigate country-specific rules.
  • The partnership (using Transferwise API) helps businesses benefit from low cost, convenient and transparent pricing in multiple currencies without leaving their account.
