Communication platform 8×8 has partnered with GoCardless to handle their recurring payments worldwide.
8×8 is a popular communication platform that has experienced tremendous growth during the pandemic. The company’s monthly user base has hit 20 million, up from a few hundred thousand.
As companies have turned to 8×8, the company needed to upgrade its recurring payment system to work with multiple banking systems around the world. The goal was to improve its payment success rates, while also increasing the company’s visibility.
“As a fast-growing technology company, we wanted to provide our customers with a simple and easy-to-use payment method for managing their recurring payments,” said Samuel Wilson, Chief Customer Officer and Managing Director of EMEA at 8×8. “The GoCardless platform allows us to provide a great experience to our customers and enables us to consolidate our paper-based processes and legacy systems into a single payments platform. We are confident that we have the right payment solution in place, which will be deployed globally in the coming months.”
The deal is a big win for GoCardless and will help 8×8 continue to grow worldwide.
