International delivery for referral SIMs

By: nicolindo | 15-01-2017 23:49

giffgaff recently launched international delivery for 'ordinary' SIMs.

Why not adding the possibility for someone abroad to get a referral SIM sent by giffgaff too?

When newcomers sign up, many websites will usually ask if they were recommended by anyone in the form of an optional field named 'Has anyone recommended us to you?'. People can then enter the name of the affiliate thanks to whom they're joining in. And the affiliate gets a reward.

If such a thing existed with giffgaff, the advantage would be twofold: 1) giffgaff would only deliver SIMs to the Super Recruiters who need them to hand in directly - locally, that is - hence saving quite a lot on shipping costs on the 50-SIM box, and 2) by shipping the SIMs out directly without sending them to a Super Recruiter first, delivering abroad becomes much greener and faster (far less transport involved).

Also, people abroad should be able to order several SIMs at once with a limit to be determined (4 SIMs per address seems about right). This is to ease the job of relatives travelling together.

I like very much this idea. I do believe that there would be an issue with activation of sim card abroad, which I believe isn’t at the moment possible. I would add that in these cases the activation would need to take place before sim is sent out and it would haven’t to be done by Giffgaff which mean that person ordering sim card would need to cover first top up and naturally the costs of postage.

Something more simple would be appropriate for me....and probably many others. I live in the USA but visit the UK around two - three times each year....probably six weeks in total. Under my circumstances I can't guarantee a visit within six months. This would mean I would lose credit and my number. On arrival at the UK I would not have my giffgaff handy to make arrangements for collection at the UK airport (I switch sim cards before landing). An arrangement that solves this problem....eg expats have 12 months grace instead of six months will make a lot of difference to those like me who have business in the UK but live abroad.

That's a nice idea, but my giffgaff account was hacked and a new SIM card was ordered by the hacker. A message came up on my phone that said 'accept new sim inserted' and this person I reported to the fraud police. He is in California. I'm in UK. The unknown person had no access to my phone but fully controlled it. I'm still having problems and I've replaced my phone and sim.

FYI I don’t know or care for you, thank goodness and You may not know me, either. But, my password is updated and I’ve changed accounts 3 times. I’m still a someone and I’m being hacked. I’m hacked off with whoever it is doing it and your attitude
