Ratesetter soft check for 18+ content unlock

By: timwilliams25 | 21-01-2018 11:23

For many years now, giffgaff have only accepted driving license or passport check for 18+ content unlock. There has been talk on many occasions to allow other forms of ID, but nothing seems to have come from it.

Each day, there are queires on the forum on how to lift 18+ barr, with many members frustrated but the lack of ways to do this.

My suggestion:

Now we have Ratesetter soft credit checks linked to members accounts, why don't giffgaff look into utilising this check as another method of unlocked 18+ content. The soft credit check will check age etc. and the member's credit score is not impacted on.

Benefits of implementing this:

  1. Easier for members to lift 18+ barr if they do not have documents that are currently required
  2. The check would automaitically be linked to the giffgaff members account and would not impact on any future credit score.
  3. giffgaff members are made aware of their potential to gain a loan (even if they had not thought of a new phone). A positive soft credit check may also influence a decision for a new phone purchase - therefore potentially increasing giffgaff phone sales.... Ka-Ching!

Yes this is a much needed addition to the Passport/Driving Licence ID.

Not everyone has either of those, so this would be a valid addition.

Good luck with this idea. :)

Seems like something worth considering so supported.
