No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Due to  an unscheduled re-issue of a credit card, a payment due on 3rd Jan was not taken for my broadband account. I have updated the payment details to reflect the new card. The system has acknowledged the change of payment details. It has not however triggered taking the overdue payment. 

I have received a couple of reminder emails, which direct me to the member centre. Once I've logged in however there appears to be no way of paying the bill, or triggering the payment in any way.  I can see the bill, but can't pay it.

Assistance would be appreciated!

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

@JPN,

 

I've had a look at your account and tried to resubmit the payment from the new details for you but this didn't work (for the same reason you noted - the payment shows but it doesn't at the same time). Unfortunately it looks like it's affected by an internal problem which occurs when payment details change on account. I've created a ticket for us to monitor this for you here.

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Thank you for setting up the monitoring. I see from the ticket that that is still in progress. I am worried that your system is likely in the next day or so to trigger an account restriction and additional charges as it will consider the bill not paid.  Is there a likelihood that the issue can be sorted before this happens?

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

I'm sorry to press you on this, but I'm expecting that today or tomorrow your system will cut off my internet access and add penalty charges. If it does so I won't be able to 'get back in touch' very easily.  Is there a way of making sure that this doesn't happen whilst the problem is sorted out?

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Thanks for the further reply. I'm afraid that the url you give in the ticket messages just goes to an error page. (I've attached a screen capture of the error page to the open ticket.  Otherwise, there is still no place in the account pages that either identifies an overdue payment, or allows me to pay it.  I've tried to access this through the 'contact us' pages; there there is a link for 'overdue payment'. That just takes me to the same places I've already been.  I've just rung the helpline, but that has a long wait, and I have to go out now for meetings for the rest of the day, into the evening. It's very frustrating!

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Thanks for your help. In the end, it had to be done over the telephone. That was very straight forward, and the staff most helpful, which was appreciated as it was very late in the evening.  All sorted now.

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Well, despite having changed to a new card, the system has again not succeeded in taking payment on 3rd Feb.  I have been trying to log onto the member centre, but the system just times out.  I can log in here, but the response is very slow - it's taking ages to load each page.  I shall try again later,  but this is getting very frustrating.

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Well, I've now spoken to the customer services staff on the telephone, and a very helpful lady was able to sort it out. She could confirm that the correct card details were in the system, but that the sum due was not taken. At first she could not access the bill to take the payment, but after a few tries from different directions the system eventually took the payment. 

Frustratingly, after having sent me an email today to tell me that the payment failed three days ago, your systems then proceeded to put restrictions on the line in a rather curious manner.  I could access almost any other website on the planet, other than the plus-net ones I needed to reach to sort things out.  The community site was very slow, taking up to a minute to load a page. The member centre just timed out.

I imagine things will be fine now, but I'm not overly confident that the same thing won't happen next month.

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

I've just double checked the account and there are no restrictions at all in place now. I'm sorry for all the difficulties with this and do should up if there's any further problems as I'd like to take personal ownership of getting things resolved.

Re: No apparent way to trigger a payment of a bill

Ho Hum,

 

I've just had my card statement, and I see that the promised refunding of charges taken in January didn't happen.  As that wasn't problem enough, I've just been into the member centre in order to change the card that is on the account, as that needs changing before the next billing cycle at the beginning of March.  

I went to the 'billing' page, chose 'new payment method' selected 'debit/credit card' and 'next'. The system threw up a  'there is a problem with your payment' message and then went into  a continuous cycle of refreshing that page. 

 

Is there any chance we could have this properly sorted before we reach the March billing point, and the whole sorry saga kicks off again?
