Auto Renewing Goodybags

Status: Implemented
by fusionblue contributor ‎25-04-2010 19:02

Would it be possible to have an option to set the goodybag to auto renew at the end of the billing month, or the system texts you to confirm if you want to renew ("reply YES to confirm") and then charges another £10/£35 etc for the next month?

 

At least this way it emulates pay monthly services but when you decide you don't want it you can just let it expire.

Yup - got to happen soon. I had assumed this was in place before I joined but am disappointed to see it is not there. Call me cynical but perhaps O2 is blocking this option as part of their contract?

As an update to this idea, I can say we are looking to finally implement this in full during the first quarter of 2011. Sorry it has taken so long, but we've run into a few issues and prioritisation difficulties regarding this.

Can't wait for this to launch, just think no more having to wait ages for the computer to load just to buy a goodybag. It's great hope it launches real soon

This ia a great idea and one I would certainly use (once the free interenet has stopped anyway)!

What happens when your chosen auto renewing goodybag gets dropped by giffgaff? Does the customer get to keep it?

good news for when it finally arrives but we couldn't we have been told that wasn't gonna be implemented until Q1 2011 some considerable time ago due to priotisation.

the moment they automate goody bags I will be waving goodbye to my current contract which is a rolling contract.
