For merchants on our Pro package, there is the option to customise the Direct Debit mandate signup form by using your own Custom Payment Pages in combination with our API, and hosting these within a website for a seamless signup process.
Where previously integrators would have needed to create multiple resources by calling each individual for customers, customer bank account, and mandate endpoints, we have now introduced the Payer Authorisations endpoint which functions to create all needed resources for you to be able to commence the creation of payments/subscriptions right away.
You can find out more about setting up Direct Debits via the Payer Authorisations endpoint on our API reference here as well as subsequently setting up payments for them either via one-off payments, subscriptions and instalment schedules.
It’s also worth noting that a customer may need to provide multiple signatures to authorise their Direct Debit mandate. Further details on how to handle these cases, please refer to the article here.
