FastPay enables you to take your customer payments by Direct Debit.
Direct Debit is an easy, reliable and secure method that puts you in complete control of your customer payments
A Direct Debit is an instruction from a customer to their bank that authorises you to collect money from their account. With a Direct Debit, when the payment amount, frequency or payment date changes, you can collect the new amount on the date of your choosing, as long as you have informed the customer in advance.
When a Direct Debit bounces or is cancelled, you will be notified by email within 24 hours of the event by our reporting facility, thus enabling you to deal with
it professionally and efficiently. Once your customer has been informed, a bounced Direct Debit can be recharged within days without any action required of your customer, assuming there are adequate funds in their bank account. A cancelled Direct Debit can either be reinstated by you with your customers consent or by your customer through their bank.
Over 80% of adults in the UK have at least one Direct Debit payment and it is used by over 100,000 businesses and organisations so you can be sure it is well understood and accepted as a valid, secure and reliable form of payment.

“We have used FastPay LTD for our direct debit collections since our companies inception over 6 years ago. At all times we have found them to be a proactive, dynamic and professional team who deliver on their word. Their easy to use systems and processes mean that we have rarely had to call on their services except for advice, which has always been both accurate and readily forthcoming When we required urgent help owing to a 3rd party issue, FastPay reacted quickly and pragmatically, going well beyond what we could reasonably expect. Without FastPay, their industry knowledge, contacts, and the amazing team which underpin it, our business would simply not be able to function. I would highly recommend them to any business, and have referred numerous customers and colleagues to them.”
