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.
