NOTE:   For the Go Cardless Gateway  - you can only create 1 profile.  Every profile once directed to the OAuth process at GoCardless gets a token created.  When you create a new profile GoCardless deactivates the existing token and creates a new active token for the new profile.  GoCardless will only allow 1 active token per account.

To configure the GoCardless Gateway into your LimeLight platform, you will go to Settings > Providers and click on the Actions drop-down arrow and select "Add New Provider Profile". Click on "Payment" as the provider type and then select GoCardless from the Provider drop-down list. You will then need to fill out the required parameters.

These parameters are briefly described here for your reference:

Creditor ID: This will be provided to you by GoCardless.

Currency: The Alto Global Gateway currently supports EUR, GBP, CAD, AUD, DKK, SEK, NZD currencies.

Test Mode: Select Yes if you would like to put this gateway in Test Mode

After clicking on "SAVE' in the gateway profile, you will be redirected to 'authorize' Limelight to create transactions on your behalf. 

Below is a screenshot of the form you will be redirected to either create a new GoCardless account or sign into an existing account.

Using the NewOrder method, you will need to include additional parameters, for country specific bank accounts.  Some of these methods are sepa_iban, account_number and bank_code.  Please refer to Limelight and GoCardless API documentation.


-GoCardless supports alternative payment types such as BACS and SEPA.
-Each European country has specific parameters for account information.  Please refer to the GoCardless documentation for local bank details: https://developer.gocardless.com/api-reference/#appendix-local-bank-details
