New payment system (country specific)
Its already 2017 yet tier 2 & 3 countries still get the same issues with a completely broken payment systems. We have dozens of online payment processors that are accessible by everyone around the globe and EA still forced specific countries to use specific primitive payment methods.

Let just go with my example, country like mine Malaysia(MY) - we have only 3 options.
1. Credit cards VISA (EA removed debit card, now only credit card)
2. MyCard ("order not completed" error appears persistently)
3. Boku (the most faulty payment system with our local telco)

I used to be able to buy funds with debit cards but not anymore. As for MyCard I have totally no idea what that **** is, it doesn't work 24/7. Boku got constant PIN error so its a no go. I have Paypal (ffs why EA doesn't allow in my country), Payza, STP, PM, Neteller (all verified) ... even Bitcoin wallet - the limitation made by EA is beyond ridiculous.

I just hope EA could at least implement some of these payment processors that I mentioned into their store or try at least. The current TA funds payment system for my country is absolutely barbaric.

RE: New payment system (country specific)
it's unlikely that those who make decisions on this type of financial matters actually read game forums as they will be the number crunchers of the organisation. I understand the frustration that we play on a global game with global payments available but not working. I doubt very much anything will change.

A main thing determining the choice of available (and working) systems is likely to be their cost to the merchant and the level of fraud returns they have to make - unfortunately some areas are more prone to fraud than others, according to my understanding.
