Top Features List

It scans generated invoices, and if clients uses this payment gateway, processes the payments and makes the invoices "pending", therefore preventing clients paying by other methods while the Direct Debit payment comes out of your clients' banks;

Gives the client control of their Direct Debit - set up and cancel direct debits, retry payments (upto three times), view history, view any issues with payments;

Refunds paid invoices - Note: Refunds need to be activated in your GoCardless account!;

It will log everything to your Clientexec log file (if it is enabled and set to level 4);

It alerts you by email and Prowl when payments are generated, webhooks are received at every status, and if errors accour (this depends if you have Prowl enabled in Clientexec). You can choose to get notified via email, Prowl or both;

To prevent fraud, NEW clients can pay by another payment method for the first invoice. If a client is still pending it skips the first invoice being called to GoCardless. There's an option to toggle this - if you switch this to NO, be sure to enable 'One-Time Payments' on for other gateways for clients to be able to pay.

If payments fail, it will email the client to inform them (you can customise the email that is sent) they can retry the payment themselves, or reply if they want you to do it for them - you must set "Send Client Emails" to 'yes';

Determine when you wish to request payment from the client bank nn days after the invoice generation date. Helpful if you wish to give clients ample time to pay by other methods first;

Choose whether or not cancelled packages that have unpaid invoices will be processed;

Choose whether or not Domain package invoices will be processed to GoCardless - ideal if you are worried about chargebacks or fraud. Note: If a domain is in the same invoice as any other package, it will not be processed when this is set to NO. You'll need to split the invoice;

Issues

You need you set your Clientexec "Send Invoice Offset" setting equal or greater than 7 days - Direct Debits take 3 to 4 week days to process. You also need to take this into account if you use the "Days After Invoice Generation" setting;

The date payments will be taken from your clients' bank will change to a Thursday if the invoice due date is a Friday, Saturday or Sunday - this is due to the way GoCardless works, webhooks get sent a day after and only on week days.

It only uses mandates (where you can requests up to £5k a month when you need to). It does not use subscriptions or one-time payments; if you want subscriptions or one-time payments, this plugin isn't for you.

Uses Great British Pounds only, it checks what country clients are from before they try setting up a Direct Debit. Due to how Clientexec works - only have one currency for packages - there is no way to convert to Euros

Notes

The past (old defunct API) plugin was free. The decision to charge for this new version due to on how much work was put into it. This version is ten times better than the old version, you and your clients can do everything inside of Clientexec, from creating mandates to retrying and cancelling payments.

There are three price schemes, an owned version where you can pay once and you own the license, and the other two are a monthly leased license payment where you get unlimited updates and 16 hours (9am to 12am UK time) a day ticket and Discord/Forum support.
