Same problem, I guess it's time to just invest in another mmo.

It's like that with everyone with any card/PayPal you use. As for putting it on origin I would wait to get my 50% off. Besides my merc is coming along fine =)

It's not even giving you the option to continue the purchase at purchase options. :/

Have same problem. Can not buy Cartel Coins using same Visa as always. I used it previously to buy subscription and Rise of Cartel. There was no problem before until now.

Problem Still exists today. This is frustrating considering I did the original purchase of the game and all of my subs up until this month. After 5 hrs on the phone with Bioware they extend my sub time by 3 days so I went to Origin site and bought 60 days game time with the same card. Hopefully they fix this soon so I can purchase some cartel coins.

SOLUTION / WORK-AROUND:

The way to work around this issue is by attaching your prepaid card (mastercard or visa) to a paypal account. Then choose paypal as payment method and then select credit-card as the payment method in the paypal checkout page. This way SWTOR receives the money from paypal, which is reverse charges your creditcard. Due to this the SWTOR system doesn't know that the payment is originally from a prepaid-card and will thus accept the payment perfectly.

Edit: This also works for subscriptions etc.

It worked for me 6 days ago when I setup my new subscription & also 1 day later when I purchased cartel coins.
