I see from posts on this forum that if I sign up for a giffgaff goody bag that it doesn't allow the use of shortcodes.

 

I understand from these posts that you need airtime credits to be able to use short codes.

 

So, a few questions:

a) are airtime credits something you can add to a goodybag plan, or are they a diifferent plan?

b) assuming I can, how do I add airtime credits to a goodybag plan? 
-  by text ?

-   by an app?

- online ?

 

thanks.

Airtime credits = PAYG credit.  Topups are available for £10, £15 and £20. 

Can be added to your account with/without a goodybag.  The goodybag will take priority over credit for any call  or text that is included, airtime credit will be used for anything that's not covered by the goodybag.

Topup using a card or paypal here: https://giffgaff.com/top-up

Redeem a giffgaff topup voucher online here: https://giffgaff.com/buy/redeem

or via the topup line (43430, opt 1)

I do not work for giffgaff, so cannot check anything on your account. This is a public community - please do not post any personal info.
