I'm sure they have.

No doubt they've heard of BACS too, but they won't use it.

Why should they? They accept direct debit which also means no more problems (if you have the money in your account) and you can do a recurring card payment. Paypal is the devil in disguise and I try to avoid using it if at all possible. Smaller transactions not so bad, but you lose your consumer protection on larger amounts.

Fair enough....but not everyone can pay by direct debit.

True, but i'm sure even the basic bank accounts have a DD facilitiy? Paypal still has to be loaded somehow, either by credit card or bank transfer, so if you have the facilities to load up Paypal you also have DD facilities?

Re: PayPal & PN

I have a Cashplus account (other similar services are available) with a pre-paid Mastercard, and that account does all my direct debits now (since lloyds introduced their daily fee thing for overdraft use, it made DDs hard when I forgot their penny-pinching took away just enough to make a DD fail), and you can top up or deposit into the account at the post office, so that's a decent solution to the problem of no bank account... 🙂

 

Well, so long as the post offices remain open to pay money into (though, that begs the question of where is the money being paid from??) during the pandemic season that is, in my case I just transfer from Lloyds to Cashplus, rarely needing to use the PO pay-in option, but have done it a few times to date...
