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||Paylinks are used to collect one-off payments from multiple customers, but must be authorised to activate|
|Payment plan||A payment plan is a template used to assign (or invite) multiple customers to a recurring payment schedule with the same set parameters|
|Bulk submission||A CSV template, used to create one-off payments for multiple customers in one go|

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.
