Order a GoodyBag and apply credit via text

Order a GoodyBag and apply credit via text

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


The title got me. Yes this would be mega handy.


Same for credit would be nice

Hi all, this 'accepted status' is two-fold. 1) We are looking into the ability to top up via text (with a registered card). But it would only be topping up money, not a goodybag. 2) Should we have implemented text top up, the goodybag itself could then be 'purchased' with the credit you've just topped up via text, by going into an IVR (press 1 to do....) and changing your credit to a goodybag.

By going into a IVR? Whats that vincent

IVR stand for Interactive Voice Response. Basically it means you get an automated phone system which says, press 1 to top up with a voucher code, press two to top up with a credit card, etc. etc. etc.

kl, how long till it gets implemented, its been since april now and nothing

great idea would certainly help out loads to be able to call n buy a goodybag or even send a txt from your mobile would make it alot simpler and easier rather than coming online Smiley Happy


Was thinking it would be a great idea if you can buy a goodybag via text. Save hassle and very convenient!

e.g text goodybag10 to buy the £10 goodybag from exisitng balance or from your saved debit card.



Nice!!! Great idea would save time!!!!


Voted hot ++++++++++ I like it!
