Please note: This information is specific to the GoCardless for Salesforce application.
A payment can be taken directly even if a mandate is not yet set up. In this case, the underlying mandate will be created automatically after the payment page is submitted, and then attached to the payment. This mandate can then be used the same way as any other - it can be attached to a payment schedule, or used to take future ad-hoc payments.
1. To create a payment without an existing mandate, navigate to the Payments tab and press the New button
You will be presented with a screen to fill in details of the payment. The only required fields are the amount and currency (if your org is set up to be a multi-currency org.)
Other details can be provided to pre-fill the payment page if required.
