Damn right. SOs can only be set up online for people with some types of bank accounts. I haven't done a standing order in decades and the charity I work for doesn't solicit new ones cos they are too much hassle compared to a DD. To set up a SO for WPUK I would have to ring my own bank fight through a call centre and electronic tele-questionaire to get them to send me a form which I then have to complete with the WPUK details (which I have to find somewhere, not to mention finding a biro if I still own one) and then I have to find a stamp and find an envelop and walk to a postbox (GB has closed all the post offices round here but post boxes still exist and I guess they are emptied) to post back the form to the bank. Perhaps 30 minutes all told? To set up a DD I go on line with a sort code and bank account number, the bank address autocompletes on the form and it takes about 45 seconds. Perhaps I should post you a cheque and do a DD next year. Can you accept CAF cheques yet?
