A new version of our WordPress GoCardless plugin is now available!

A new version of our WordPress GoCardless plugin has just been released. Version 2.2.0 is available as of 21st February 2018.

The GoCardless plugin enables you to easily integrate your website with the GoCardless payment system. It’s the easiest way to start taking direct debit payments via your WordPress website.

Key new features include:

  • Cancel subscriptions directly within WordPress from the subscriptions page without going to your GoCardless dashboard

Thanks to Ellen Schofield for her coding work on the pre-fill feature.

And because the GoCardless libraries have a new latest version, we’ve updated the plugin to reflect this too.
