Get paid in just three simple steps

With Instant Bank Payments, your customers can pay you easily, directly from a button on their invoice.

From here, all they need to do is just three simple steps:

  1. Select the bank they want to pay from
  2. Securely authorise with their bank, using their own mobile banking app or online banking
  3. Confirm payment

It's that simple!

Send invoices with a 'Pay now' button

Email invoices to your customers. From the email, they can click the 'pay now' button to pay securely and quickly online.

They can also download to PDF, and use the QR code to pay using their mobile.

Take payments on your mobile

From the Clear Books app, you can show your payment QR code to your customer. They can scan the QR code with their mobile, and pay instantly on the spot using Instant Bank Payments.

Safe and secure payments

Instant Bank Payments is a safe and secure method of payment.

Making a payment through Instant Bank Payments offers the same level of security and protection as making a bank transfer directly through your bank.

Security is our priority – Instant Bank Payments is available via Plaid, a world leading Open Banking platform, regulated by the FCA.
