Few things,

1. Buy a prepaid visa and get your codes right away.
2. Pay-by-cash which works but you will have to wait a few days to get code.

I recommend the prepaid visa's that you can buy from Wal-Mart, several drug stores..etc..etc..

Since my new credit card is still held up in the bank bureaucracy, I'm also forced to opt with PayByCash to get the code (which wasn't offered yesterday, and to my joy I saw added today). What slightly bothers me is that on the PayByCash order it isn't mentioned anywhere that the free goodies code is included... so I can only assume it is, but if it's not, it will make me a sad panda.

Don't suppose anyone could confirm whether the code is in there?

Hi all.......you should also be able to get a pre paid visa from your bank, its like a gift card but has the visa logo. My bank however charges a convenience fee, you may have to do the same.

I use a debit card with MBNET in it...

It allows me to create a virtual visa card valid for 24 hours and for one transaction... and no extra cost/fees.

ASDA is actualy owned by walmart now. You can use a Paypal top up card... it'll take a week or so to get to you. No monthly fees and it's free to top up through paypal otherwise it costs a pound. It costs a fiver to activate but if you intend on buying stuff from the UOstore then it's worth the investment plus you can use it basicly anywhere in UK as a credit card.

Kudos to PayByCash on fast delivery, my codes just arrived both for gametime and the expansion...

... however, it's just as I feared: no goodie pack code is included. This makes me a very very sad panda now :'(

Think I should try and cry to some UO rep about it or am I just screwed? Contacting EA support is a fruitless effort like most of us know, takes forever and they still don't understand what you're talking about (some time ago I had connectivity issues to Europa, explained my hardware and told them the game has worked fine for 5 years on that setup. They told me to turn off my firewall :reye ).

EA has ultimately failed in the area of digital payment, honestly. Paypal is the absolute easiest way to eliminate all of these different cards, but they refuse to accept it for some foolish reason. Many mmo developers use it now, because paypal's cut is less than what it costs to process all these different cards. If Blizzard (ten million subbers) and Steam (again, over a million users) can manage it, I don't see EA's problem.

If they don't rectify this, I predict problems when The Old Republic comes out.

Seems I jumped the gun and owe PayByCash an apology - another email just arrived from them, containing my promotional item code! Hooray! =)

So coatesy, that's at least one option you can use - they offer loads of payment options for the creditcardially impaired. I paid for mine via a simple online bank transfer. Made the purchase yesterday afternoon, the codes arrived today less than 24 hours later.

Can't wait to get home from work and punch in them codes.

PayPal is not the cheapest, they are just another layer in cake and take their own, additional cut in processing the payment. On the other hand, EA should just suck up the extra few % points as a matter of customer convenience, esp when many other MMO's do it.

Ummm, well first of all if you chose to pay via bank transfer you shouldn't NEED any kind of card. That's the whole point. You simply transfer the money from your account to the account number they give you, along with the transaction ID they give you.

Anyway, PayByCash were really quick to answer my questions at least, so if you have issues, I can recommend contacting their customer support (unlike EA's...).
