Card topup \flooding\" warning message to prevent unwanted multiple payments"""

By: philiplittle40 | 01-10-2013 11:33

Payment system issues bad enough. However they seem to get exacerbated by people not realising the payment system is on a go slow - who then go on to try again multiple times. This further clogs up the already ailing payment system, and then goes on to further strain the agent system once they realise there are multiple charges on their bank account. 

If someone tries to post the same thing on the forum within a certain time period then they get a "flooding" message that stops the duplicate. Not certain of the technical feasibility, but a similar thing on topup would at least reduce the frequency of multiple payments going through if there is a system issue and the first attempt seems to fail. 

Something along the lines of :

"You are trying to topup within X minutes of previously topping up. It may be that your previous topup is slow in showing, please check with your bank before trying again to help prevent unwanted multiple payments "

Thoughts?

Now that is something that must make whoever set up the card payments system at Giffgaff put their head in their hands and cry out " why didn't I think of that!!!!"

Unless Giffgaff are being intentionally sneaky and giving out their Christmas bonuses from all the unintended purchases that go unreclaimed. But they wouldn't have, would they?

Six plus years and people still click twice before they know it a double payment is taken, funny how post flooding protection is provided for H&S but not for payments or here for repetitive comment pasting
