Working with your sector

Health & Leisure

Payments in the leisure sector can encompass recurring membership fees, extras at the bar or salon, and one-off payments for merchandise, events or consultations. Accepting card payments and Direct Debits makes the process that much easier.

Your business is all about customer service and experience, and so is ours. We have huge expertise in this industry and understand the nuances of working with gyms, salons and spas, and how you need to manage memberships. We know the pain points and challenges of moving payments, and make it so you don’t have to.

Keeping memberships rolling is absolutely vital to your business. Our easy-to-use technology makes payments frictionless and helps you maintain a healthy relationship with your members.

How We Work With You

Sometimes a customer’s account will not be able to fulfil your request for funds and you’ll get a ‘refer to sender notice’. But the payment is not necessarily dead – we can set up an automatic re-try on the collection for two weeks later with a minimum of hassle, so you don’t go through the pain of moving payments.

This is an extension of our customer-centric philosophy; other providers have been known to resort to aggressive debt-recovery measures if a Direct Debit is not fulfilled, but we would rather give you control over your relationship with your members. You know them better than we do. It often works best to find a solution and keep a member on board than cut them loose to spread ill-will about your service.

Our comprehensive reporting suite integrates into leading platforms and software providers in this sector, making it possible to manage all of your turnover in one place. We want to ensure that our system not only streamlines your payments and collections, but also gives you greater control. We understand the space and we fit differently, more collaboratively, and our support teams will always be on hand to help.


Variable payments

Customer services and extra items can vary from month to month. Our system enables you to adjust the amounts you need to collect.



No matter what your infrastructure, or which financial software you use, we will work with you on your integration.


Fallback date

Our automatic fallback function allows you to re-try collections at a later date, if a customer’s account cannot fulfil your request for funds.


Customer-centric approach

If you have a payment problem, we won’t enforce draconian rules. We’ll let you take the lead to maintain healthy relationships with your members.
