What is GoCardless?
GoCardless is an online Direct Debit provider with a secure set-up process that allows the members to pay both easily and safely for their subscriptions by instalments should they choose to spread the cost over the course of the year. It can also be used to as a payment system for Club bookings which would be taken in full from your bank account at the time of booking. You can of course still pay in the normal way using a card payment at booking if you want.
Why do I need to sign up to GoCardless you have my direct debit details?
From 2023 onwards we will no longer be using the old direct debit system, but GoCardless which is integrated into Sailing Club Manager so the whole process is streamlined. Reducing administration time and cost. We require all primary members paying in instalments to sign up to GoCardless.
Make sure you have your bank details to hand.
Go to the BSC website and login with your details - https://www.boshamsailingclub.com/login
This will take you to the Members Hub. From here click on 'authorise GoCardless' which should appear in a blue banner across the page.
Alternatively, you can click 'GoCardless setup' near the bottom of the right grey menu both indicated by the red arrow on the following page.
This will take you to your GoCardless Page and if you have not already set up your GoCardless it will ask you to do so.
Click the large green 'Authorise GoCardless' button
This will take you to a new page to set up a Direct Debit with Bosham Sailing Club (as illustrated below) and follows the format of a normal direct debit mandate.
Please complete all the fields clicking continue once you are ready.
Once completed you will go back to your GoCardless page. Here should you ever need to amend your direct debit you can do so.
You should notice the bottom green box says Disable Automatic Payments - if you click this it will change to Enable Automatic Payments.
In order to pay by direct debit instalments this must be set to 'Disable Automatic Payments' which means we (Bosham Sailing Club) can take the instalments automatically.
Your GoCardless is now set up.
You will receive an email from GoCardless confirming that you have done this. This is just for your records and you do not need to do anything with that email.
