Direct Debit Manager - Matching GoCardless customers to your Sage 50cloud Accounts customers

Created on  | Last modified on 


This guide explains how to match your GoCardless customers to your customers in Sage 50cloud Accounts.


With Sage 50cloud Accounts v24 and above you can integrate with GoCardless to take Direct Debit payments from your customers.

If you're already using a GoCardless account you can match your GoCardless customers to Sage 50cloud Accounts using the Match option. This enables you to manage your GoCardless account within Sage 50cloud Accounts, take payments via invoices and save time with automatic posting of payments and GoCardless fees.

We'll run you through the steps below on how to match your customers.


How to match customer accounts

When you first connect Direct Debit Manager with your GoCardless account, you're prompted to match customers. If you choose to do this later, or new customers have been added from the GoCardless dashboard, this option is always available in Company Preferences.

  1. On the menu bar click Settings then click Company Preferences.
  2. Click the GoCardless for Sage 50 tab then click Match.

    Any customers found in your GoCardless account which aren't currently matched to a customer record in Sage 50cloud Accounts are listed.

    Potential matches automatically populate based on the Direct Debit email address held in the customer record.

  3. To match a customer, click the Sage A/C drop-down and click the relevant customer record. If you need to create a new customer record, click New.

    If you don't want to match a customer, leave the Sage A/C column for that customer blank. This customer record will appear if you return to this window in the future.

  4. Click Save.

TIP: If you have linked a mandate to the wrong Sage 50cloud Accounts customer, you can delink and then link to the correct mandate.
