unblock credit card
Appearently our credit card was blocked years ago in some previous system (yahoo ads or ms adcenter), because MS was unable to charge $4 to the card. Even though we're a good Bing customer now, according to customer support your systems are unable to unblock a credit card for eternity once it gets blocked. So the only payment method available to us is a manual bank prepayment every few weeks and to monitor this very actively to prevent deactivation of campaigns. It has actually been suggested to me twice to ask my bank for a new credit card.. a card that we use for like 30 other companies.
What a horrible customer experience and even worse excuse for a software company as Microsoft.
Another solution would be to just support direct debit or even post-payment by bank.
Oh so to be clear, my "idea" is: to build support in your backend systems for your employees to be able to unblock a credit card after thorough verification.
