And I thought you still put coins in the meter? I thought whole idea of pre-paid meters was for people who could not manage their money? And if that the case, paying for it on line is a non starter.
Didn't realise you have some sort of memory stick with money on it.
I have thought if I add some numbers on the meter reading it will save some money, however when I went to look after my mother the money was taken out of my bank account at same rate as when we were at home, so I ended up pre-paying for electric, in the end I got a refund, but for ages they tried reducing and reducing my standing order.
Had it been a month or two I could have understood, but it was over about 2 years, and the meter was outside in a box in the wall. So they could read it without my being home. I know when they had been, as it seems they have not worked out how to close the door after reading the meter.
But what I wonder is how it works when the supply company goes bust? It happened here, and we had no option it seems but go with the supplier who took over, we could not select ourselves who we wanted to take over.
However we pay after we have used the power, so we had no money held by our supplier, what happened with pre-pay meters? In the days of coins the coins paid the bill, and if the bill was less than the coins in the box you got some back.
