Went to enable in-game purchase and it tried making me pay for more CC before it would allow me to. Really? I already bought some, with a credit card no less, so I should just be able to jump right in. But no, somehow the website has "forgotten."

You have to realize: when I can't use my prefered paying method, I wont buy anything.

For this game i use paypal. I can use it to pay my subsription, but not for the CC. Customers don't care what problems your developer have. The payment in this game ist just an confusing chaotic mess!

You can pay this with that, but not that with this... ***!

Want my money? With such a poor payment system you wont get it! Why can't you do anything right? Payment has to be easy for the buyer!

Not to mention the buy first on the website thing, then buy ingame.

What about this: send a letter EA, dance in the backyard, run around in circles, then buy CC ingame!?

Also, woohoo - glad to see it made it in game, got myself a nice refill of CC!
Thanks, gonna buy 5500 CC then and wait a few weeks for the supreme mogul hypercrate to go on 50% sale (hopefully), so I can buy hypercrate at 25% of the value

I'm having the same problem too (screenshot here)

Let me see if I understand this:
When this deal is live, you need to buy Cartel Coins off the website, at full price.
Only when then finalizes, can you buy Cartel Coins in-game, for half price. But only once.

When this deal ends, it forgets everything, so next time the deal comes up, you need buy Cartel Coins off the website, to activate it in-game, to buy Cartel Coins half price, etc.

You have to pay, to be able to pay again and to get discount.
Besides that feature is totally bugged, i made purchases of cartel Coins with Credit card before, it still asks me to pay again... Money Rip off.
Also forgot to add, that i am using PayPal currently, so all this new features also as -50% deal is totally useless for me, even tho i pay subscription i got ripped off on that bonus. Thanks BioWare. if you make a new system make it exactly with options as on your website. AS your producer said you want game to be like WoW. But WoW does not have such issues, as one option available at one place and not available at other. This is total mess - you have to fix it.

It doesn't support PayPal? Seriously? I pay my monthly subscription and my Cartel Coin purchases via PayPal, yet this won't accept it? What the hell, guys?

Same issue here, I've made multiple purchases using my Visa card and I get asked to make another purchase before I can enable in game purchase. So I choose the small $5 thinking maybe my last purchases were too long ago. Checked billing details and it's definitely used my card not Paypal or anything else. Added the Cartel coins to my balance and when i went back to enable it again says I need to register a credit card!! grrrrrrrrrrrrr. Not happy!

I am getting the same request, I have purchased Cartel coins before, and now to enable ingame purchases of coins I have to buy more coins first.

Is this intended or is this a bug ? if it is intended then this is really bad on your part Bioware.

Was going to make a purchases but then this whole, buy cartel coins online with CREDIT CARD and then buy in game is inconvenient, confusing and just plain stupid.

Why not just make it a 50% discount off the 5500 cartel coins pack when bought in-game or 25% discount off all cartel coin pack rather than have this inconvenient in-between who knows what.
