Paying In Full:
Within the next 48hrs you will receive an email from email@example.com with a GoCardless link for you to arrange payment. Once you have submited the GoCardless form, the payment will leave your account within 3-6 days.
GoCardless uses military grade encryption, but it is best to use a secure, private connection (not a library or public computer or public wifi) and ensure that your security software is up to date. You might prefer to use a private or incognito window on your browser. GoCardless is a secure site, but your connection could potentially be affected by other things.
The payment will be taken out as a Direct debit. This is because it is a simple, easy to use and cost effective way to take both types of payments (in full and instalments). Only the specific payment(s) are authorised and able to be taken out from your account by GoCardless. Amaris Arts do not have any direct access to your bank details.
You will need to input your bank account number and sort code into the form (if you have a shared account that requires both to authorise Direct Debits - they will need to enter their details too), so please have it ready before you begin. You should then receive a general confirmation email from Amaris Arts via GoCardless. You will also receive a personal welcome email from Amaris Arts within a few days.

Once you have submited the GoCardless form, the 1st instalment will leave your account within 3-6 days, and each of the remaining months instalments will leave around the same date (on the nearest working day).
