Bill Payment changes

Both on the virgin media app and the website you have removed the ability to pay anytime. When selecting Make a Payment it takes you to the screen attached. There's no way to make a payment. 

I can only think you've done this to force customers down a direct debit path. It was very convenient and easy to manage for me to pay £25 every Friday. Now i have no choice but to wait for the full bill.

Re: Bill Payment changes

Oh my god, who wants to spend time making a payment over the phone? That doesn't answer the question as to why the facility was removed.

Re: Bill Payment changes

Thanks for coming back to us @nox808 and I will be sure to pass on your feedback once again.

Re: Bill Payment changes

Yes it takes you the same screen as I posted. There's no longer anyway to pay if you're up to date with the account.

Re: Bill Payment changes

Hi nox808, 

 

Thank you for letting us know. 

 

Can you please try clicking here. The link is similar to the one sent by BenMcr so you will just need to pop in the details requested.  Could you then let us know how you get on?

 

Thank you
