Reminder for customers paying by Direct Debit

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Just a quick reminder to simplewebhosting.co.uk and simpledomainnames.co.uk customers paying for their web hosting and/or domain name renewals by Direct Debit that this Friday will be that last time you will be able to do so.

Once the last Direct Debit file has been sent to the bank on Friday morning we will automatically switch all Direct Debit customers to pay by credit or debit card. You should login to your client area at www.simplewebhosting.co.uk/secure to update your payment information.

We’d like to thank you for choosing to pay by Direct Debit and we do hope this won’t cause too much of a nuisance.

Important Notice for Direct Debit customers

Friday, May 6th, 2011

We’ve been very proud to be one of the few web hosts in the UK that allow you to pay for your hosting renewals by Direct Debit. Whilst the take-up has been low, we’ve always thought it was a great feature.

Sadly, with effect from 1st June, 2011 we will no longer be able to accept payment by Direct Debit. This is for a number of reasons to do with cost and automating our payment systems. Accepting payments by Direct Debit is actually quite expensive and, despite recent improvements by BACS, is still a very manual procedure.

If you currently pay for your web hosting or domain name renewals by Direct Debit, we’ll very soon be automatically switching them to pay by credit/debit card. If you don’t have a valid credit/debit card on file, you should login to www.simplewebhosting.co.uk/secure and follow the ‘My Details’ link.

Don’t forget, simplewebhosting.co.uk doesn’t impose any fees on payment processing whether you choose to pay by credit or debit card.


Are you paying for your web hosting by Direct Debit yet?

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

You’ve been asking us for all sorts of things over the past few months and by far the most popular has been for the facility to pay for your web hosting and domain name renewals by Direct Debit.

Direct Debit makes renewing your web hosting and domain names even simpler. No more worrying about your credit or debit card expiring or having to update your details when you get a new card.

If you’d like to pay your bills by Direct Debit instead of that pesky credit or debit card, login to your client area at www.simplewebhosting.co.uk/secure and click the Direct Debit link.

What are benefits of Direct Debit I hear you ask?

Direct debit is the preferred payment method for over 48% of the UK bill paying population because it provides so many advantages:

It spreads the costs
Spreading the cost of bills across the year, allowing easier budgeting.

Peace of mind
Peace of mind of knowing bills are being paid automatically and payment dates will not be missed.

It’s often cheaper
Apart from eliminating the expense of mailing cheques, it enables you to take advantage of the many direct debit discounts available.

It’s more convenient
Many organisations offer a choice of payment dates giving you the convenience of choosing a date that suits you best.

It’s guaranteed
The reassurance of knowing that every direct debit is protected by three main safeguards: an immediate money back guarantee from the bank or building society if an error is made, advance notice from the organisation if the date or the amount of the direct debit changes and ultimately, the right to cancel.

What’s left is available to spend
Paying regular bills by direct debit means it is easy to see what disposable income is left to spend after all other commitments have been met.
