Once your mandate is created you can link single Direct Debit or payment schedules to it.
Edit me

A Direct Debit payment is linked to a mandate. The Direct Debit is pulled from your payer's account on the settlement date and credited to your merchant account.

Depending on your business model you may decide to create single Direct Debit payments or, more typically, configure a schedule of recurring payments.

For more information on Direct Debits see the Direct Debit Overview section
