I asked Support, but they kept asking me if i could not access MyAccount, but after my expanation it was obvious i could. they were useless and would not allow me to update my card any other way.

Hey @GlenR - our team members can certainly update direct debit details for you. I'm sorry you've been given such a run around. 

Have you tried clearing your cookies/cache and browsing history? 

I'd suggest sending your details through to our team here, so they can update your details for you.

Last night I was able to delete old card, new card added in September, I couldn’t get the system to accept new card. So I deleted old card. THEN THE SYSTEM STATED YOU HAVE DELETED YOUR DIRECT DEBIT PLEASE RE-APPLY. 

I tried online chat and they kept canceling the chat before I could type in my problem. 

CLEARLY THIS SCREW UP IS AFFECTING MANY CUSTOMERS.  I am thinking if a few take this to telecommunications ombudsman I would suggest that OPTUS might be in for charge themselves.

I also received messages from Optus I would now face an extra charge for not having payment details in place. Seriously, doesn’t OPTUS actually read their own blog which shows a common problem that’s affecting people’s credit rating and you get charged just because the Optus administration are to lazy or incompetent to fix their own problems.

I agree,

 

My service was suspended today due to this, no one at Optus is helping me. any other provider would have called me and sorted this out quickly. the Removal or adding of Credit card details STILL isn't working.

 

What a joke, I'll be heading back to Telstra as soon as I can.

They say to talk to the Webchat team but ive 'spoken' to 5 people in 2 or 3 different teams and no one has been able to resolve this for me.

Really sorry for late reply and your direct debit issue, @GlenR. Is the online My Account working since posting? Once you cancel the direct debit online it takes 24 hrs to process and then you come back the next day to set it up? Was chat able to restore your service? If you still need a hand let me know. Sorry once again and appreciate your patience. Kartik
