If you are currently paying via PayPal and you would like to switch to Direct Debit:

Log in to your WriteUpp account

Go to main menu (top left) and select Account Details

Click on the Switch to Direct Debit link which you'll see next to Mechanism: PayPal

Complete the direct debit mandate, which will look like this:

Having completed the mandate, you will receive an email from PayPal confirming that your previous recurring payment (via PayPal) has been cancelled. You'll also receive emails from GoCardless (our direct debit provider) to confirm that your direct debit has been set up.

PLEASE NOTE: Payments via PayPal are instantaneous whereas payments made by direct debit take around 5 working days to complete. Consequently, when you switch to payment via Direct Debit, we initiate payment around 5 working days prior to your monthly payment date so that your payment day remains more or less the same. We can't guarantee that it will be exactly the same as different banks take different amounts of time to clear direct debit payments.

Please be aware that if you switch to Direct Debit (from PayPal) and attempt to make a change to your subscription after we have initiated payment (i.e around 5 days prior to your monthly payment date) you will be unable to do so until the payment has completed.
