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.

In regards to the international delivery. I got an idea of maybe putting a machine in the big airport terminal.

People just insert a specific code that sort of referred back to the recruiter and they got the sim card there and then. 

I find myself quite agitated waiting for my international delivery..:P

You mean you would like to distribute more sims, via an airport outlet rather than have it posted to the person abroad, before they travel. Or are you abroad. I'm in the UK.

Yes. Like a vending machine of pay to go. I was in gatwick and a friend of mine lost his sim.

Hey folks,

As navvy rightly said, this idea has now been implemented. A massive bravo to nicolindo and all of you lovely folks who discussed, supported and voted to make this idea a reality.
