    There is already so many different payment options on giffgaff, hopefully PayPal will NEVER be an option.

    I have had so much agro with PayPal over the past 5 years. They are not only greedy/expencive, but even worse are so confuse, I am extremely loathe to give such a foul organisation my bank details, etc.

    Hi tbmn,
    Is it possible to use the sms facility (using a mobile wifi device), to top your account, with a top up voucher?
    I know that other reputable networks, allow this method of payment.(Obviously, only once a registered online network account, has been verified)
    If you do, where can I find the right details, to do it. And if you don’t, do you think you may make this a near future option.
