GoCardless Setup

What is GoCardless?

GoCardless is an online Direct Debit provider with a secure set-up process that allows members to pay for their membership and berthing in instalments, should they choose to spread the cost over the course of the year.

It can also be used as a payment system for club bookings, which would be submitted to be taken in full from your bank account at the time of booking. You can still pay in the normal way using a credit card as payment at the time of booking should you wish.

Why do I need to sign up to GoCardless if you previously had my direct debit details?

From 2023 we ceased using the old direct debit system and moved to GoCardless, which is integrated into our membership and booking software.. This greatly reduced accounts administration time and cost. All members wishing to pay membership/berthing by instalments must sign up to GoCardless.

Make sure you have your bank details to hand.

Go to the BSC website and login with your details -, (if you do not remember your password or have issues logging in at this point please contact the BSC office).

Once this is done you will be taken to the Members Hub. From here click on 'authorise GoCardless' which should appear in a blue banner across the page.

Alternatively, you can click 'GoCardless setup' near the bottom of the right grey menu both indicated by the red arrow on the following page.

This will take you to your GoCardless Page and if you have not already set up your GoCardless it will ask you to do so.

Click the large green 'Authorise GoCardless' button

This will take you to a new page to set up a Direct Debit with Bosham Sailing Club (as illustrated below) and follows the format of a normal direct debit mandate.

Please complete all the fields clicking continue once you are ready.

Once completed you will be taken back to your GoCardless page. Here should you ever need to amend your direct debit you can do so.

You should notice the bottom green box says Disable Automatic Payments, which means that automatic payments are enabled.

In order to pay by direct debit instalments this box must be showing 'Disable Automatic Payments' which means we (Bosham Sailing Club) can take the instalments automatically.

Your GoCardless is now set up.

You will receive an email from GoCardless confirming that you have done this. This is just for your records and you do not need to do anything in response to this email.
