GoCardless has announced that it became an approved supplier of Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Open Banking Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) framework.

GoCardless’ development strategy

By entering the DPS, GoCardless can receive additional strategic opportunities in government and expand its footprint in the charity sector, where it already serves organisations such as JustGiving and Comic Relief. Also, CCS approximates that the DPS can generate a sales pipeline worth as much as GBP 800 million over the upcoming eight years.

According to GoCardless’ officials, by joining the DPS as an Open Banking provider, the company aims to continue its expansion and improve its capabilities in the financial sector. GoCardless intends to provide the features of Open Banking to businesses and consumers leveraging government services, while also continuing its commitment to offering its services to the charity sector.

The announcement represents the most recent achievement for GoCardless, with the company previously becoming an Open Banking payment provider for JustGiving at the beginning of January 2024. As part of their collaboration, GoCardless was set to enable JustGiving to leverage its Instant Bank Pay capability to collect secure, instant, and one-off gifts from customers, as well as its Direct Debit capabilities for recurring donations. Shortly after, GoCardless announced its partnership with Comic Relief, which intended to enable the latter to take more donations outside of its yearly Red Nose Day fundraising campaign. Prior to these announcements, the company was selected by credit card provider Yonder and ethical lender Plend, among others, for its Variable Recurring Payments (VRP).
