Have you ever run out of minutes or texts on the goodybags, (this mainly applies to the Hokey Cokey with 300 texts) and cant afford £10 credit to last you out the month as you are still at school or uni where money is tight anyway?


Make topping up with just £5 an option or even allow a user defined amount above £2, would make finances much easier to manage. This would also be great as a small supply in case you do run out of minutes and texts on the less expensive goodybags.


It may be simple but very useful if you are in a situation like I was in!


If ya think its a good idea, give it a kudos! Smiley Wink

umm interesting

Sorry, suggested many many times before but rejected.


This isn't an option because it costs giffgaff money to process each transaction so small topups are not finacially viable

Mybe to save transaction costs for giffgaff, the money is taken out out by debit monthly or 2 monthly after a few £5 topups although Im sure there would be some other problem with that :L

It's payg so what if the user leaves before paying their debt? What you are proposing is post pay, which is probably not a sensible move for people struggling to afford a £10 topup

Keeping in mind that any change will be retroactive back to the earliest days of giffgaff and affect all members, should we remove the impact on forum ranks of giving kudos.
