Starling Joins BACS


#1

Slightly old news (end of Feb) but I haven’t seen any mention of it on here…

Starling have joined BACS, and looking at the list of members, they may well be the first mobile challenger bank to join BACS as a direct member? :slight_smile:

What does this mean for customers? Will outgoing BACS payments be supported soon?

Looks good, probably more useful for merchant payment customers than personal customers, although maybe there are some features coming to the business accounts that we don’t yet know (like DD creation)

Nice! Does this mean Starling may be able to offer a similar proposition to GoCardless - facilitating inward direct debits - for business customers?
