I think it would be nice if we could order a GoodyBag or apply credit via text


I'll explain scenario, today i wanted the £5/month GoodyBag but really did not want to log on to my laptop [cos its sooo slow], so could have just texted "£5 Goodybag" to a GG phone number, [if your credit card details are saved online] they then in a text back ask me to confirm what i am buying and then apply the respective goodybag/credit to my account. Then if i wanted credit i could have texted "£5 credit".


Just an idea, leave your comments or if you like it Kudos the idea



please note: i added the "apply credit" idea  from the response from 'geekonthepc'. So many thanks to him/her

This, as well as a few other interactions via text are on the radar of Member Experience for 2014. There needs to be a few more discussions and prioritisation sessions to figure out which projects make the top of the pile, but this Idea is a contender. We'll let you know if it makes the cut in its current form.

Would be good, but would it require you to have already input ur credit card details online, or does it come out of your airtime balance

This should absolutely be available, almost all other networks offer this and not everyone uses the Internet. I have no idea why giffgaff are ignoring this despite the obvious desire of the community to have this idea implemented. --Adam

Given the grief people seem to be having at the moment buying bags on the internet is it worth reconsidering this?

Bumping this because as an educator said they are implementing BB, That's done and okay fair enough giffgaff has other issues and ideas at hand but implementing 'Buying a Goodybag via IVR' should not be a No Go Zone. Every person i have reffered to giffgaff has complained about this 1 problem and only this 1 problem, What about those people with the most basic of phone? I don't want to be receiving a call every other day from friends and family telling me their goodybag has expired can i set another up, Not everyone likes and wants to acces the internet! GET THIS DONE OR ON THE TO-DO LIST AT LEAST!
