Add bank account for pre-authorized payments with Koodo

Would be awesome to allow this option. Even better if the self-serve app could snap a void cheque!

I like the idea but what would be the purpose of having it directly on the Koodo site? From the Koodo site you would have to be redirected to your bank's online banking system and at that point you may as well just visit your banks website and set it up there rather than go to Koodo's first. I may also be missing something here...

With Self Serve app being discontinued, the void check idea wouldn't make sense any more.

That's a good idea Titan, maybe it can be built-in as a feature in the Koodo Self-serve site or even an upload a picture functionality
Not at all awesome. First, giving any company the authorization to take money from your bank account is a bad idea. Second, there is no point in paying any bill with a bank account when you can use a credit card and get rewards. Third, Koodo is not going to add a payment option that TELUS had before and now removed. They might have different directors or whatever, but when it comes to taking money, I am sure TELUS has the first and the final say.

Setting up pre-authorized direct debit from a bank account was possible through self serve in the past. If it has been removed by koodo it is likely that they had their reasons, in which case it is unlikely to be reinstated.

It's too bad it's been knocked out. Granted, I prefer by credit card. Even if you configure your online banking to pay Koodo a certain amount every month, that won't factor in other charges and credits (refer a friend credits, early upgrade fees, pro-ration of plan changes, adding or removing service, overages and roaming charges, etc.).
I'm glad this idea got attention from the Mobile Masters, but would be cool to see it implemented.
