There are five different methods you can use to collect payment(s) from a customer. These are:
|Payment type||When to use|
|One-off payment||When you want to charge a specific customer one payment|
|Individual subscription||When charging a set of recurring payments with the same parameters to a specific customer|
|Paylink||When wanting to provide a link that multiple customers can follow to authorise a one-off payment|
|Payment plan||When wanting to either assign or enable multiple customers to sign up to the same payment|
|Bulk submission||When wanting to create one-off payments for multiple customers in one go - done by entering details into a CSV template|

Creating a one-off payment
Here, we'll look at how to create a one-off payment for a customer - the simplest type of payment to create. (It's also perfect if you'd like to run a £1 test payment yourself before you begin collecting payments from your customers).
Note: The customer must have authorised their Direct Debit (show as active in your dashboard) in order to create a payment for them.
3. Set the parameters for the payment in the window that opens.
4. Click Create Payment.
