GoCardless - Payment Processing Time

Helpdesk -

When members pay by GoCardless, funds are processed through the RBS banking system and take a number of days to reach your organisations bank account.  Note, at no time does Pay Subs Online handle any money processed for your organisation. All funds are processed and completed by GoCardless.

We've set out the timetable of payment for two scenarios.  

a. For customers without an active Direct Debit mandate (who need to authorise):

(WORKING) DAY EVENT FURTHER DETAILS
0

Customer completes authorisation form

Payment created in GoCardless

Details of the customer's new mandate is sent to their bank to set up (providing this was done before 4pm). If a payment was linked to the authorisation, this is created in our system and can be viewed in your merchant dashboard.
1 Customer's bank processes mandate creation request The customer is also sent an automated payment notification email if one is due to be charged as soon as possible (in 3 working days time).
2

GoCardless receives confirmation of mandate set up

Payment submitted to Bacs for processing (4pm)

The customer's bank informs us of whether or not the customer's mandate was set up successfully. If so, their payment is submitted to Bacs for processing at 4pm. (We can only cancel a created payment before this point).
3 Customer's bank receives the payment request This is then processed by Bacs.
4 Customer charge date  
5 Customer's bank confirms new payment status Customer's bank confirms the updated status of the payment i.e. successful, failed, etc. (This will usually update in your dashboard by approx. 12pm)
6 Funds paid out to merchant  These should reach the merchant's bank account between 2-5pm.
