Here’s a list of the new functionality we’re planning to offer through GOV.UK Pay.

This roadmap is a only a guide and may change from month to month.

October to December 2018

  • Collecting billing and email address from paying users will be optional
  • Apply surcharges to corporate credit or debit cards
  • Allow services to use their own unsuccessful payment screens
  • Quicker and easier onboarding for services
  • A card processing contract that GDS procures - so services don’t need to bring their own contract

  • Support for Apple Pay and Google Pay
  • Reporting for telephone payments
  • Improve conversion rates on our payment pages
  • Apply custom branding to payment links
  • Payment links in Welsh language
  • Payment and refund confirmation emails in Welsh language
  • Attach metadata to transactions (for example, fund and ledger codes)

Later in 2019

  • Repeat card payments
  • Reporting across multiple accounts and payment types
  • Billing address and email address can be pre-populated
  • Get invoices paid online
  • Support for other eWallets
  • Support for Pay via Bank Account (PSD2)
