Hi, this is a little idea.
The minimum top up is £10 so maybe giffgaff should let us top up £5. I'm a light user and don't need much of anything. So being able to top up £5 would be nice.
This often comes up. gg are I'm sure fully aware of the idea.
you get my vote
I like the idea of a £5 credit topup.
Due to costs there is a point when this becomes uneconomical due to transaction fees.
In the past gg have claimed in the past that there are certain fixed transaction costs which make smaller payments uneconomical. Not saying that is not true but I suspect there are also business reasons why having larger balances works in gg's favour, more cash in accounts, more scope to spend on PAYG either deliberately or accidentally eg when allowances run out.
I support the often proposed idea of smaller payments e.g. £5.
But accepting payments for any amount presumably from 1p upwards seems to be asking a lot to me. I think it is reasonable for gg to draw a line somewhere.
