Fiskl and GoCardless partner to help small businesses take direct debit payments globally

5 august 2021

Fiskl, a mobile-first, intelligent financial management platform for small businesses with customers in 120 countries, today announced a partnership with GoCardless, a leader in account-to-account payments, and the launch of recurring direct debit payments for Fiskl customers.

„The partnership between Fiskl and GoCardless delivers to small business customers the most reliable payment method for automated invoices,” according to the press release.

„GoCardless will significantly reduce failed transactions as it eliminates common pitfalls associated with card payments, such as card changes or expiry issues, by leveraging the bank transfer system,” the company explains.

For international payments, Fiskl small business customers benefit from favourable and transparent exchange rates, supported by the GoCardless-Wise partnership.

Timely payments, underpinned by favourable charge fees as well as exchange fees, are critical to our global customer base, whether trading locally or internationally”, said Alina Lapusneanu, Fiskl’s CEO and Co-founder. “Fiskl offers the largest variety of payment options as a platform to its customer base, and we are continually looking for solutions which add value to our customer’s businesses via speed, automation or savings. GoCardless solves several major pain points for our customers, enabling recurring or subscription payments, reducing late payments and providing savings on fees.”

We’re excited to partner with Fiskl, offering joint customers a new way to collect payments that reduces churn, minimises bad debt, and increases cash flow — all at a cost significantly lower than cards,” said Hiroki Takeuchi, co-founder and CEO of GoCardless. “This integration also provides merchants easy access to the latest technology, including our new open banking features which enable businesses to take one-off and recurring payments in a single platform.


Purpose-built for business owners, the Fiskl platform gives entrepreneurs a suite of rich and intuitive features they need to manage all their day to day finances, from invoicing and payments to accounting. Headquartered in London, United Kingdom, Fiskl has partnered with leading US and European banks, global mobile operators, payment providers and recently won the Visa Everywhere 2021 Europe competition.

The GoCardless global payments network and technology platform takes the pain out of getting paid for 60,000 businesses worldwide, from multinational corporations to small businesses. Each year GoCardless processes US$20bn of payments across more than 30 countries. GoCardless is headquartered in the UK, with additional offices in Australia, France, Germany and the United States.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
