Hassle Free Payment Management

Direct Debit Management

As a BACS-approved bureau, London & Zurich can make direct debit collections using your own Service User Number (SUN). London & Zurich are also able to represent businesses as part of the BACS Affiliate Programme, taking views and suggestions directly to the BACS board and influencing new developments in service.

Benefitting from the variety of direct debit management options, businesses can choose to use our secure, cloud-based eBacs suite for one-off, recurring or variable direct debits, or our web API to integrate with their accounts or management packages. Using our direct debit bureau service, businesses can ensure that their direct debit processing runs smoothly at all times, without expensive, complicated Bacstel-IP software, dedicated staff or smartcards, which can be easily lost or damaged. For businesses already using their own Bacstel-IP software, London & Zurich can provide a standby service to satisfy disaster recovery provision, avoiding panic over breaks in cash flow for any length or type of disruption.

Payment Gateway Provider

As an independent Payment Gateway provider, London & Zurich strive to offer the best possible service, tariff and additional services for our merchants. One of the services we offer is a secure Payment Gateway platform, allowing merchants to process credit or debit card payments online 24/7. An online Payment Gateway is the mechanism that sits between your consumer and you as the merchant. It will either authorise or decline a payment based on the same principles as chip and pin – including, checking whether there are sufficient funds available and whether there has recently been any fraudulent activity on the account.

To check these details, the Payment Gateway liaises with Card Schemes and Issuing Banks within thousandths of a second to provide a relevant transaction response. Whether the payment is authorised or declined, the merchant and consumer will receive a real-time response to inform them. In the case of the payment being authorised, the funds are reserved from the consumer’s account immediately and both parties receive an authorisation code. At the end of the day, a settlement file is sent to the Merchant Acquirer, ready for the monetary transfer to be completed. Our Payment Gateway operates on specialist technology, proven over the last 10 years, and is completely secure, adhering to Level 1 PCI:DSS compliance. We offer three types of merchant accounts – ecommerce, MOTO (mail order telephone order) and PDQ (chip and pin). All offer the same high speed and reliability.

If you need to set up regular collections from your customers, London & Zurich are an established direct debit bureau, providing a one-stop solution for all your payment needs. If you already hold a merchant account with another company, why not ask us to beat your current deal? A quotation is absolutely free and we could drastically reduce your transaction charges.
