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

Status: Not For Us

19th May 2015 - Evening guys, this Idea is over 5 years old, and whilst we don't want to say we won't ever do it - it is habitually is de-prioritised due to the complex nature of the system, and a concern it would raise cases for members accidentally buying the wrong goodybag. This idea can absolutely be re-posted when the new Platform launches, and members can have a fresh discussion about whether they want this and whether they think it would benefit giffgaff to have.

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.

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.

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.
