How to get your Direct Debit test account setup

Creating a Direct Debit test account


Setting up a GoCardless test account allows you to try the direct debit payment rail. It lets you set up and manage test direct debit payments within Blink.

How it works?

To create a GoCardless test account, navigate to the direct debits area by selecting the 'manage direct debits' icon on the dashboard or using the left-hand navigation bar (customer centre>direct debits).


After navigating to the "manage direct debits" page, you will have the option to select either a test or live account. Opt for the test account and proceed to click the "sign up" button.

Select test

To create an account, simply click on the "sign up" button. You will then be redirected to a page hosted by GoCardless where you can enter the necessary information. Once you have entered the information, make sure to agree to the terms and click on "create an account".
