Getting paid just got even easier.

Today, we’re excited to announce that direct debit payments are available in-app for all our partners using Practice Ignition across Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Now, you can collect clients' direct debit payments automatically through your Practice Ignition proposals.

Say goodbye to your debtors.

With this announcement, we’re making it even easier for accountants and bookkeepers to capture client billing information up front – 100% of the time. Our hybrid offering of both credit card and direct debit payments removes the need for chasing clients and piecing together manual workflows in order to get paid. A true all-in-one onboarding experience.

You can now use Practice Ignition for everything.

Monitor Outstanding Payments

The concept of bringing payments into Practice Ignition was initiated very early in our product development. We wanted to find a way to tie payments directly to your contracts, so if either changes, the other is adjusted automatically.

There's no need for disparate systems or using two or three apps to manage your client onboarding. With one single system, you can price and scope work, collect billing information, get paid in line with your fee schedule, and ensure your invoices and payments are automatically reconciled back in your cloud accounting software.

Payments is one of the most loved features on our platform. We regularly receive comments from our partners like the one below. This is testament to how valuable Payments is in Practice Ignition.
