The same issue for the photocard payment for one months. No information or explanation anywhere about the problem or solution. Is there anyone looking after this website or just ignoring the messages here?

Hazel       16 days ago     #
Could someone from TFL please reply to all of these messages. This is getting silly. We need to know how we can access our various oysters and how we can pay for them. Or at the very least tell us when these problems are going to be fixed. When I eventually got hold of customer services after a very long wait yesterday she didn't realise there was a problem, went away, presumably to ask and then told me it would be fixed this morning! It has not been fixed. Please reply to us.

i have been trying for days to report a lost 60 plus card which you have to do before you can get a replacement. Then at the third time of trying and over 3 hours of waiting on the phone with its incessant we are extremely busy message, I get told to go into the account and pay. But, it wont let me. You cannot move past this . very infuriating. !! The customer service is really awful TFL !!!

Reported 60+ lost. Went onto website, ordered new card. Did not acknowledge payment. Ended up paying three times and it still says it is "awaiting payment"! Calling is impossible. I give up after 2 hours. Virtual queueing doesn't work I have had no call-back 2 days running. In the meantime I don't have the use of my card!

zipcard 16+ application, pay page is not working, tried so many times for 4 weeks now. and the card is expring in 2 days. I will ask for compensation and loss of time, I also called the contact centre, the first call was useless the person did not even understand me, 2nd cal was this weekend, the person said 'please wait to see if the £20 will be out of your account, I have raised a ticket for you, so if it does not go through you will receive an email with a link for payment' it has been 3 days still waiting for the email. Very bad website and software, shame on London transport! hope someone will resolve this, I have also messaged you on Twitter!

making a payment

John       27 days ago     #
What is going on with the ZIP website, it is a complete disaster. I made a payment of £10 to top up my son's zip card and I was charged twice. I have now to payments of £10 to Transport for London in my bank statement, and the best thing is that none went to the ZIP card so the ZIP card balance is still 0. Is this not clear misappropriation. This is surely illegal. And nothing in the website on who to contact for issues like this.

Payment process is not working

Liz       29 days ago     #
Have been trying to order and pay for 60+ oystercard for about 2 weeks now, everything is fine until get to payment page, then payment isn't accepted. Not a problem with my cards as they are fine elsewhere all the time, it is the TfL payment process that is the problem. From comments below it appears this has been an issue for a month now, yet there is no message, explanation or apology anywhere on the TfL website. Can't get through via telephone as 'they are experiencing extremely high call volumes at the present time' - not surprisingly. Like many other people this is costing me a lot of money unnecessarily. Catastrophically bad situation and atrocious management of situation.

As per all the comments below - I have been unable to top up my children's zip cards online. Why?

Fed up with calling TFL       34 days ago     #
For at least 3 weeks, possibly 4, I have not been able to top up my son’s zip card on line. I have called TFL 3 times and been given absolutely no information as to when this problem will be rectified. My son lives in London ( for college) and we live in Bedfordshire - I cannot pop to out local station to top up his card. I am now transferring money to him and getting him to top up the card himself. Not a great hardship but why the hell isn’t the website just working properly? With the millions of pounds which must have been spent on the website you would imagine it would work!?!

Marie2100       35 days ago     #
Tfl Zip Photocard webpage has changed but they didn't bother telling anyone. The Zip card system is absolutely crazy!! So many things wrong with it I don't know where to start. I have replaced a card which TfL cancelled after 5 attempts by phone. I was assured that the balance from the previous card would be transferred to the new wasn't!!!!!! So once again I tried to top up and set up auto top up, the site says the payment was successful but the balance still shows zero. My daughter is regularly stranded because of TfL shit system. Why is it that anything the government gets involved with is an absolute shambles??!!!! I suspect this is a scam to force kids to pay full price to recoup the losses due to COVID. What options do parents have but to drive their kids to school rather than pay the extortionate adult prices !!!!!!!!!! We need a new mayor.

Can't pay for my kids' zip cards as the payment portal hasn't worked for a WEEK. As they are both starting college/uni the timing seems deliberate, so students will have to pay full price. FIX IT.

I can't go to the station to top up - what am I/my children supposed to do.

Worried parent       37 days ago     #
What is going on with TFL, I have been trying to get a zip card reissue for my child with no luck. The process used to be straightforward. I got to the payment section and it keeps telling me "We're sorry this isn't working right now, Try again later". I have been trying for over 1 week now.
Can someone in TFL let us know what is happening or put up a message on their site on when this will be sorted out!

been trying to pay for my sons 16+ zip card for the past 4 days . The payment portal is useless. My bank paid the money but the portal did not confirm so no zip card even though money was taken. joined the virtual queue and got a call back I was told oh this is happening all of the time we will refund you. I dont want the money I want the zip card. What a hopeless organisation GET IT FIXED!

Lucy       48 days ago     #
No, I got right through to payment stage, my bank authorised so I think the problem is with you. Please fix this - we all need to renew our children’s zip cards urgently and this is unacceptable. 2 hours and still in virtual queue - not good enough. This is a public service that I pay for.

It has been 2 - 3 times in the last few months now that I was either unable to logged in or had to tick planes and boats for ages or been finally able to login but had to start all over again as soon as I click in a link in my oyster card account. I also had to changed my passport because I tried to login many times without success so got blocked (when I did enter it correctly). The same problem exists no matter the browser used. Please sort it out.

Over recent weeks I have repeatedly had the same problem as others in not being able to login - can't get past the captcha images check which puts me into some sort of loop. And now I'm getting emails from TFL saying they can't turn off auto-top up on 2 oyster cards when I haven't asked to turn it off (although I do need to update payment details). Makes me very worried about putting in any new card details at all now - if I ever manage to log in.

I have been trying to pay the congestion charge since Thursday 3rd of June. I drove to Guy's hospital which is just inside the congestion zone. My partner had just had his covid jab the day before and wasn't feeling well enough to travel. I tried multiple times to login, reset my password, create a new account, call the helpline and email customer services. I tried to set up auto pay but the application kept being rejected. I finally got an email today telling me they have reset the account but basically I'm going to receive a penalty charge for late payment. The link they sent attached to the patronising email didn't work. I phoned the helpline today and finally got through to an actual person. All she could do was reset my account again which still didn't work! I tried to enter a new password and it was rejected. The email I had received also told me that I can pay the congestion without an account but when I click on the link the page doesn't exist. This has been so frustrating and I'm not looking forward to challenging the penalty charge.

Marino       603 days ago     # website is not working for me, it's having issues - a shared webserver with the national software repository. I think the problem has been solved, however, after an hour or so of direct enquiries to the site I'm still not able to access the site. It took me hours of research and trying to solve the problem to get the correct link working. Instead it redirects me to the Labour press office website where I have to scroll down to get to a basic page where I find a link to contact the Labour Party with questionnaires, including a link to the party's email in the URL. I don't need the second screen to get to this, but I don't want to have to click twice just to find out what the difference is between socialism and devolution.
