Getting paid is an integral aspect of any lending business, yet the path to successful transactions is often riddled with many obstacles including but not limited to credit cards fail, customers changing their cards etc. These unforeseen challenges can throw a wrench into even the most carefully orchestrated repayment plans. They not only pose a threat to your lending business but also jeopardize your borrower’s credit history.

We know about these problems and we’ve fixed them – with Direct Debit..

Imagine this scenario: a borrower eagerly awaits their repayment date, only to have their credit card transaction fail, causing frustration and panic due to a looming penalty fee. Such avoidable mishaps can tarnish both the borrower’s financial well-being and the lender’s reputation. This is where direct debit steps in as a reliable and efficient alternative, eradicating the stress and uncertainty associated with other payment methods. 

With direct debit, borrowers and lenders stand to reap significant benefits, ushering in a new era of seamless transactions.

How does direct debit work?

The process is straightforward:

Obtain authorization: Your borrowers grant you permission to take payments directly from their bank account through a direct debit mandate that outlines essential details such as bank account information, payment frequency, and amounts. 

Initiate debit requests: On the agreed-upon dates, Lendsqr initiates debit requests based on authorized mandates. These requests are sent to borrowers’ banks, signaling the commencement of the payment process. Lendsqr’s bank account is credited with the collected funds from your customers. We reconcile the incoming transactions with the respective mandates and lenders(your) account. Both banks keep a record of the transaction.

Communication: Your customers receive timely notifications regarding the status of their debits, including successful transactions, failed attempts, refunds, and other relevant information.
