Here's what our customers say about working with us

  • Collecting Direct Debits through SmartDebit has revolutionised our revenue collection. Our customers receive a hassle free payment process, and we have the money when it’s due with very little administration.

  • Diners Club use SmartDebit and is a globally recognised brand serving the payment needs of select and affluent consumers as well as providing companies with payment solutions. Since August 2012 Diners Club in the UK and Ireland has been issued by Affiniture Cards Limited.

    Diners Club
  • As a business coming out of administration for the second time in 3 years, we had no credit worthiness. We had no merchant services to take credit cards with. We knew immediately that SmartDebit were the right company to do business with. We were able to build an interface to their API from scratch in two days and put Direct Debit sign-up online. I would encourage any business considering or using Direct Debit as a payment method to talk to them and learn how simple they are to work with.

  • The SmartDebit solution has already proved to be a positive investment for Krome; the way that client payments are now set up, managed and received is fast, simple and effective. The finance team have all been impressed with the online management tool which is incredibly simple to administer; all in all the SmartDebit solution is a vast improvement on previous processes.
