Having followed our guides and built & tested your integration, check out our best practices checklist - it’ll take you through everything you need to build a great integration for your users, and is perfect for going through before you go live.

Going live

Once you’ve fully tested your partner integration in the sandbox, you’ll need to have it reviewed by a member of the GoCardless team before you can start connecting merchants in the live environment. To start this process, you’ll need to complete a self-assessment, which should take around 30 minutes.

Make sure you’ve set up your account, created your live app, and then click the “Begin self-assessment” button on your app’s page.

Once you’ve completed the self-assessment, we’ll aim to get back to you within 3 working days. We’ll let you know when your app has been reviewed, but as part of the review process, we may send you feedback, or ask for a demo of your application - if so, we’ll be in touch.

You’ll also need to write a user guide so it’s clear how your integration works. We’ll need a high resolution logo, so we can list you as one of our partners. Please send a URL for your user guide, and the logo, to partnerships@gocardless.com or your account manager.

Finally, to drive usage of your integration, we’d suggest developing a landing page with the key benefits and a user guide, ensuring GoCardless is included in your FAQs and support materials, pointing users to it in welcome emails and regular communications.

Earning money from your integration

GoCardless offer a 10% revenue share of the transaction fees generated by your integration.

That means that for every transaction that your users take through your integration, you’ll receive a 10% share of the fees GoCardless collect.

Please note that if you have chosen to apply app fees to your integration, you cannot also have a revenue share.
