i was wondering about pre ordering the expansion with the Hutt revenge thingie. I want to buy the update, but i also wish to preserve my privacy and i just don't do the whole banking through internet thing.

Is it possible to pre order and pay the money for it WITHOUT giving my bank account info to internet ?

Like is there a IBAN / BIC account that is owned by swtor where i can do transfers to with a message attached like "paying for update X for player Y" ?

Or will it be possible to pre order the expansion in a real games store ? Or will it only be sold through the internet ?


kind regards, Melf

It is a DIGITAL EXPANSION. So that alone suggests it will only be available online.

Also, why so paranoid bro ? I guess you're not using a cellphone, are you ?

you could buy a prepaid card with cash and use that to purchase it?

That would solve it. Like i have 70ish days on my subscription left plus a dozen gametimecards stashed on my bookshelve. Could it be perhaps possible to like exchange 10 days of my current subscription time for the update ?

Or will subscribers get the update anyways ? My main point is that i wish to do the expansion, AND I WANT TO PAY FOR IT, but i do not want to and will not do the internet moneytransferring thing, and yes, Paypal is also money through internet. And I don't care if some call that paranoid. It is my personal preference.

Will that be possible EA ?

Greetings Darth_Melf,

Unfortunately we cannot accept subscription time or gametime cards in exchange for this expansion. I can assure you that the payment methods we do accept are very secure and you are not at risk if you use those.

Thank you for playing Star Wars: The Old Republic

Cerimon, I can't pay for your digital-only expansion...with a credit card I DON'T HAVE.

Sorry, EAWare, but not all of us are getting by on full time jobs, here.

Mind you, I am willing to pay for the expansion, i want to pay you for it, but i shall not use internet payment methods. I am baffled by the fact that you are making it hard for me to hand my money over to you.

Will I be able to buy the expansion in a real life store ?
Or might it perhaps be possible to use cartel coins to pay for it like with the "section X" things ?
