I rarely use the Starling business banking website, but having read this thread I thought I should see what (if anything) was new. And it seems they are ramping up to process direct debits - you can register your company’s interests to do just that.
Muscling in on the big boys, me’thinks.
Imagine if Starling can disrupt GoCardless hold on the market (or even possibly buy it), that would be a little kick for Tom Blom given he founded GoCardless
I have a few friends who’s businesses use GoCardless and Starling, I’m going to see if they are aware of this
Will be interesting to see how it develops. I find it amusing that Starling are going after Tom’s old company though!
We use GoCardless quite a bit for a few businesses. Had an email last week I think it was about instant payments with GC using Open Banking, which could be interesting. Although I know of solutions that don’t charge for this service (Crezco for example), GoCardless probably will.
