RE: Issues with buying Funds? Check this.
I have just tried to get Funds 10 mins ago

When I try to pay I am told there is a Problem
Never had problem in the past, Except Funny its appeared every time a when a offer is on.
If I can not buy when offer is on, I will not Buy at all, so EAyou have lost another 100 euro a month, or 1200 per year and that is just of me. wonder how many more will react the same

Same here in Holland, can't buy funds with paypal (browsers Chrome and firefox, both up to date).
Nice offer if you won't let people buy funds Tongue

update: creditcard did work now for me so there's at least that Tongue

This is why PayPal isn't working today.

I do hope they keep the offer going a few days longer so we can by the funds needed.

This report specifically mentions PayPal being hit so it is very possible. We know from past experience here it can take a while for things to get back to 'normal' - The sale is now half over and hopefully the difficulties are too.

Can't buy funds with a credit card either. Clicked 'Pay Now' and the screen is frozen in the same thing for over 15 minutes. Tried 3 different accounts and got the same thing.

Cookies and history are cleared daily. Worked OK the last time I topped up (about a month ago) but only one option now. I'm in the Philippines.

RE: Issues with buying Funds? Check this.
One solution that may work if you're prepared to use it is to try without 'private' browsing enabled. This has worked for some where their AV program was changing to a secure browsing mode to make a payment, when it was turned off it allowed the payment to go through.


YOU TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

RE: Issues with buying Funds? Check this.
Nah ..... not gonna risk anything. I've been playing for over 4 years, paying on 7 accounts every month for over 4 years, but if EA are now saying that I can only top up $16+ each time, they can screw it. My $4.99 on each account every month was enough for me ($42). To have pay over $110 is taking the ****!!! Problem after problem in this game for far too long. If it can't be sorted out I won't bother topping up again.
I might as well buy a couple of new games every month.

We are checking why some countries show no offers at the moment. The DDOS attacks during the sale on major sites such as PayPal were unfortunate. We will discuss internally if we will add another short-term sale in the near future as a result.
