About GoCardless Pro

This GoCardless plugin for WordPress allows you to easily integrate GoCardless’ low-cost 1% payment system with your WordPress website.

The plugin allows you to create one-off payments, regular subscriptions, and payment mandates.

New in v2.0: Allow your customers to make variable payments using our Name Your Own Amount functionality. Ideal for donations.

Charging only 1% on transactions, with a maximum £2 charge, GoCardless ( is much cheaper than PayPal.

The GoCardless Pro plugin is implemented via one shortcode! For completeness, there is a second shortcode to create payment links too.

GoCardless Pro includes a comprehensive admin area where you can set up and test your GoCardless account with your WordPress website. You can also configure an unlimited number of payment options.

The GoCardless Pro plugin for WordPress is easy to set up and use and we’ve included a quick start guide as well as more detailed instructions.
