I have a set up going where people can place an order with me through an online marketplace to receive a giffgaff SIM, and then I receive that order and enter their details into the Send a Sim form in the ‘Spread’ section of my account. This saves me having to order the SIMs to my house and then package and post them myself. The name and address fields are easy to fill in since I can get this info from the shipping details they provide me with, but the email is not as easy to find on the platform I use. Also, if I do put the client’s email into the form, it sends them a message saying that “your friend [Name] thinks you might like giffgaff”, which obviously doesn’t look very professional.
I am wondering if anyone on here would have any advice regarding this, such as whether I could just use my email address each time I place an order to send clients SIMs on the giffgaff website (since it doesn’t really matter that they receive the confirmation email from giffgaff), or whether this wouldn’t work (maybe it needs to be a unique email address for every order?)?
Finally, if I were to use my own email address when placing an order to have a SIM sent out to a client, presuming it allowed me to keep reusing the same email address in the form, would there be any association between my email address and the giffgaff account and activities of the recipient of the SIM. I ask because I have heard stories of someone who distributed O2 sims, and one day had a knock at the door from the police because one of the people they had sent a sim out to had used the number for criminal activity. I wouldn’t want there to be a record somewhere that links my email address (which, after all, would have been entered into the ‘friend’s email address’ box in the form) with the stranger who actually does receive and use the SIM.
Thanks in advance 🙂
