Why use direct debit for gym memberships?

More manageable payments = more sign ups

Understandably, customers can be uncomfortable with paying a large lump sum. It’s much more appealing, and feasible, to make smaller payments over an agreed period of time. That’s why with smaller direct debit instalments, customers are more likely to agree to a membership.

Flexibility

Now more than ever customers are drawn to services that offer flexibility and a sense of control over their budget. Customers value services that are adaptable to their circumstances and the ever-changing economic climate. Biz Core’s direct debit payment system offers your customers the flexibility and peace of mind they need. With 24/7 access and the ability to change payment schedules to weekly, fortnightly, monthly, or one-off your customers will feel in control of their finances, and you can enjoy a more consistent cash flow.

Simplified customer management

Forget messy paper applications, confusing excel documents, and laborious paper ledgers. Customers want fast sign ups, easy updates, user-friendly systems, and accurate information.

Data security

In this digital era, information and data security are at the forefront of customers’ minds. In Australia, 83% of customers report that they are concerned about the data security of their service providers. So, by using a direct debit payment system that has built-in data protection, you can offer your customers a convenient and secure way to pay.

At Biz Core, we take data security seriously. That’s why our direct debit processing platform is safeguarded using the multilayered Microsoft Azure Cloud Security. With built-in security controls and real-time global cybersecurity intelligence, our system rapidly identifies and stops new threats.

 

Direct debit vs credit card

Life is always busy and it’s all too easy to forget a payment or miss an invoice. That’s why setting up a convenient and automatic direct debit is beneficial for both businesses and their customers. Not only will it increase cash flow for businesses, but it will also save customers the stress of missed payments, late fees, and membership cancellations.
