Announcing Glofox’s new Direct Debit integration - GoCardless

Posted by Conor O'Loughlin on 3 May, 2018

The Glofox team has been working on some exciting things that we think will make your fitness business that much more effective. We’ve heard you loud and clear that a Direct Debit solution for recurring payments was a must for the European market, so we are excited to announce our partnership and integration with GoCardless, the UK’s leading online Direct Debit provider.

GoCardless + Glofox

GoCardless takes the pain out of recurring payments for thousands of clubs and gyms across the UK and Europe. In 2017, they processed more than £5bn worth of transactions in Europe for over 30,000 businesses. And, as part of their mission to build a global Direct Debit solution, they’ve just launched in Australia. When we thought through which partners would help our customers to the next level, GoCardless was a no brainer.

Our integration, which will be ready for you guys to use in the next few months, allows you to collect payments via Direct Debit directly from the Glofox platform. We think you’ll love how easy it makes collecting Direct Debit from your members, automating your payments and reconciliation and cutting the time you spend on painful payments admin. GoCardless also offers low transparent costs and more flexibility in how and when you collect membership fees, to help you save money and provide a better customer experience. Like we said, a no brainer.




Come check us out at Elevate in London, May 9-10

GoCardless and Glofox will both be attending Elevate, the UK's largest fitness & physical activity trade show. If you’re attending we would love to meet up and tell you more about our new integration. Our teams will be there to chat through how the partnership with GoCardless can give you more control over your payments, and more time with your members.

Join us at the Glofox booth E36 from 11:30-13:30 on Wednesday, May 9th for coffee, snacks and a chat. Both the GoCardless and Glofox teams will be on hand to give you a demo and answer your questions on how we can help power your fitness business.

GoCardless Webinar

Not headed to Elevate? Not to worry, GoCardless and Glofox will also be hosting a Webinar to walk through the integration, how to set it up, and how you can get the most from it. Register here for the Webinar and to hear future updates on our exciting partnership:
