Go Cardless

The developers here at RBA have been working on something new and exciting.  We are introducing a new integration with Go Cardless. This allows you to create your direct debits easier by linking your customer accounts in retailer with the customer accounts in your merchant dashboard within GC. Go Cardless also needs less manual user input as the recurring payments are collected automatically from GC and also posted to the customer account within retailer.

Once you have setup the original direct debit and linked the accounts between Retailer and Go Cardless, the process of collecting the money on those specified days is automatic with no manual input.

RBA Announcement

RBA has some exciting news for you!

In February, this year, we announced we were testing our new Near St integration.  We have now completed our testing and are happy to announce that our official launch date is 3rd June 2019.

Near St’s aim is to bring the customers back to high street shops instead of solely using the online retailers. By integrating with Near St your shop’s products will appear at the top of their Google search results, listing the prices, product information and stocked status.

Not only does Google give customers all this information, they are also able to see how far away your shop is from their current location!

You do not have to do this all yourselves, thanks to the integration with RBA this is all taken care of automatically and the information is kept up to date with regular stock updates.

If you would like a bit of background, take a look at this BBC article on Near St.

If you would like to know more or to get started with an RBA Retailer to Near St product feed, please contact RBA or drop sales@rbauk.com an email.
