Good evening Smiley Happy


This is absolutely fantastic news (You will now deliverying SIMs abroad)


It's a great advantage to giffgaff!


Also , Would this include SIMs that are ordered from your Affiliate (Spread order link) page?


I assume this has gone live or do we await on a date yet to come?

That's a great question @formulaone


Will the sim orders to international waters be affiliated to members banners @carlottasanfront    If they require one posting ?

Seems like a good idea more benefit to giffgaff than the recruiters I suspect unless your new and still able to get your £5 payback for activation.


dont think myself as a super recruiter will gain anything by this change though.


good news all the same for potential new members for giffgaff.

Great idea, will you also be able to order internationally from affilate links? Also now would be a good time to implement a way to unblock adult content with foreign id.
Here to help.

One has to wonder how many "overseas visitors" have access to a UK credit or Debit card.

And the problems there will be about card details being stored without active consent and then Airtime or Goodybags being renewed for months after the visitor has gone home..................

Hi Carlotta,

Seems great that giffgaff is finally doing this, and very good news that giffgaff will finally accept international credit cards as payment.

Will the sim envelopes be the same ones as currently used in the UK? There are lots of anecdotal reports on the forum of sims being thrown away because the packaging looks like junk mail. I'm imaging that this problem will be even worse when sending sims abroad?

@johnstilwell they don't need access to a UK card,this is from the OP of this thread:-


We’ve got more good news for you. Because we aim to make life easier, all international joiners will be offered the option of activating their giffgaff SIM, topping-up and auto-recurring their goodybag using an international credit card.


That's handy for them (and good news of course) isn't it?
