Payback paid early

By: darkknight01 | 19-08-2014 23:42

Wouldn't it be nice to have payback paid every month, even two months or at least every three months, I know there have been lots of suggestions of this before and it will be too much work for giffgaff but please support this as there haven't been much changes in payback and since were the "bosses" please giffgaff think about this idea as a lot of people have suggested it and it would be nice to get payed every month on every after three months it will feel like a real job, hope you support this idea, thank you everyone

Personally I like having payback twice a year. It just comes as a little bonus.

I think the knock on of more regular payments would be either devalued payback or higher prices. The payback runs, however automated they are, will still require administration and human input and will have a cost associated to them. Performing those processes more often will multiply the costs. As another commenter mentions, there are provisions for super-recruiters (a smaller subset of the user base). If you want to approach your giffgaff membership like a job, you probably ought to be on that scheme.

Disclaimer: I'm probably amongst the lower earners, so I get a dribble of payback every now and then. I don't have to sit, waiting for my big payback balance to reach me. I'm not sure how many of those people there are, so perhaps some data from giffgaff's end will help us understand the spread of users and how many would really benefit from more frequent payments. There might be room for an additional level: general users, high-earners and super-recruiters?

have you considered that only letting the payback roll-over once would mean being more likely to lose payback if it was not claimed in time as well?

The 'widget' is turned back to £0.00 after payout date; you then cannot choose a payment method until you have been assigned some payback (middle of July/January at moment at the earliest) - which makes it even more complicated for members claiming - not everyone gets payback every month unless they are active.

The key to being paid more often might be to become a Super-Recruiter - they get a payment each month if they qualify (2nd & 3rd topup of activated SIMs) - into their nominated PayPal account.

i suppose it depends on how much you've earned in the month?! But I'm quite flexible re payback

It's a wonderful idea to have payback paid out in 3 month, as there need to be some changes in this field.

I like the 2/year payouts, as it's more of a 'bonus' and not just a regular thing.

every after three months it will feel like a real job” ………

But it is NOT a real job. It is a bonus given for helping in the forums … allocation of ‘Payback points’ is even a ‘loyalty bonus’ as you MUST have an active SIM to qualify, and you must be actively USING that SIM at least once during the three months immediately before the PAYOUT month (for instance, having a Goodybag for one of the three months: March/April/May or September/October/November; or having Airtime Credit which you use for data/calls/minutes during those months).……… It is not a good idea to COUNT on that money to come by a certain date, either, as delays happen. … … I don’t support this idea, as it is difficult enough to sort out voting for the charities twice a year. … … unless you think the donations to charity should be stopped? … … I don’t.
