Likelihood to Recommend
If you need to move money using ACH then Dwolla is the number 1 choice. Highly recommend. We shopped several potential partners and Dwolla was better across the board. I count the Dwolla team and my team - they're always there to help and always go above and beyond to help us.

We believe GoCardless is the best-in-class solution for global companies who wish to streamline payment processing in many countries, especially when integrating within a company website or supported complementary software. It also works very well for recurring payment situations as it can be very streamlined for recurring & auto-payments. This is NOT a tool for credit card processing, so understand that and consider something like Stripe if credit card integration is your goal. The fees for GoCardless may be highly dependent on the anticipated processing volume and size of your business, so do know that very tiny companies may find the fee structure to be higher. For a US-only business, I'm not sure if GoCardless really would make the most sense outside of specifically for integrating within the software for click-thru payment processing. Where GoCardless shines is when your business operates in many countries and is looking for a seamless solution for your customers that also avoids them paying banking fees.

It has a good web dashboard, you can see who has paid, who hasn’t, when payments will be taken from client and when they will arrive in the bank account

There is no phone support, email only, and the support is slow coming. The support staff often don't read your support query properly, so you waste time having to re-explain yourself. That is the only downside of this product.

GoCardless provides a simple way to take one-off card payments or set up direct debits for customers. Payment links can be included on electronic invoices, and certainly, from a UK perspective, it provides a more professional appearance than using, say, PayPal for business-to-business payments.
Read full review Return on Investment Without Dwolla, we would have to invest a lot more of our company resources and time into accomplishing something that can take as little as 15 minutes. Dwolla's integration is almost invaluable to us. Read full review Increase customer digital payments vs. check by 18% and climbing. Decrease time to pay significantly and allow payment directly at time of order. Reduce write-off and non-payment by customer. Cost to Kanopy has been reasonable and benefit exceeds the fees.
