I found a work around for the error.
You can still purchase EA Game Cards from local retailers and redeem them. This will add the balance to your EA Account and then you can proceed to purchase game time or Cartel Coins.
I know it's not the best method, but it works.
Sir (or Ma'am) you are officially my new hero! After reading your message, I immediately went to my local store and purchased EA Game Cards. After following your instructions I was FINALLY able to purchase Cartel Coins!! Thank you SO SO SO SO
much for sharing this!
EA Game Cards are now the way I will purchase my Cartel Coins.
Again, THANK YOU
