Why can Origin's techie group do this, and not the group dedicated to this particular game?

It makes absolutely no sense.
Besides, I went to origin myself, and couldn't find their live help link. I did find a few topics that said that TOR wasn't supported on their site, though.


Copypasta from Origin's help center
it's not and if you try and confront EA about their mistakes they refer back to the rectal monkey who told you to call them in the first place.. this error not only affects my Cartel market on SWTOR but Lord of Ultima as well so now I'm double porked.

Can more people confirm if its working for them now?

Im am still getting the same errors as before,
even after the tip on how to delete your card or paypal details.

What gives me the bleeps is that i was able to start a new account and subscribe with no problems at all, but once i went to get cartel coins the error returned.
I was truly bewildered.
So in short i have three accounts that all cant buy cartel coins, but the funny thing is i was already having this problem with the other two but was able to sub and start a new account . LOL

Nope, still broken here. Still need to go to origin buy a code, then come here to insert the code to get 60 days rather than just get them here directly without having to go through Origin, I don't really want to have to go there.

I wouldn't even mind much if my payment method didn't support a subscription, if I could just buy time... and I'd like to get the option to buy a year at a time or so, maybe with benefits like the 6 month sub.

this is just pathetic i cannot believe a company of this size has a problem with their online billing system, its a joke, and not a funny one, a company that has a main goal of making money that cannot make money from a stupid little error which they have known about for over 2 years.
Bioware this is what happens when you get into bed with EA

I have just logged in after few days, I have been subscribed since January 2012 and I have always used the same PayPal account for ages. Just as other folks here, I am unable to pre-order the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion, due to the "problem" with my PayPal. The same goes to my credit cards.

I wish everything worked properly at least once, considering how much money I have (we have) spent for this game...As far as I can see, it hasn't been fixed even if people have been complaining about the same issue for ages.

Was happening to me out of the blue yesterday I put in a new credit card got the 5500 Cartel coins and now its been doing it again all day... From the look of things im gonna have to do without for 3-4 weeks, it's a damn shame EA won't sort a *********** problem out, what other company would let this stuff happen, disgraceful.
