Hello,

 

BG has recently made a lot of changes to their online account area.

 

One of the changes seems to be that you no longer need to enter the 3-digit security number, from the back of your card, when making a payment using previously saved debit/credit card details.

 

I thought when making online payments the security number had to be entered manually as it isn't 'legal' for a company to store it online?

 

Also, I can find no method to manage stored card details when logged into my BG account.

 

Any advice please?

Is there any particular reason you wont use Direct Debit fade2grey ? 

They use to offer a discount for paying by way of DD and Duel fuel.

I find they are very lenient when dealing with late payments which can be a life-saver when 'robbing Peter to Pay Paul',  and I'm not sure any discount for going the DD route would cover the cost of charges incurred for insufficient funds.

pay by bacs transfer from your banks web portal.

 

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

Thanks for your replies and sorry for the tardy response.

 

I got in touch with my bank who informed me that is down to whoever you are making a payment to whether or not they require you to supply the 3-digit code as an extra security measure. Obviously, BG no longer requires this.
