Free trial to paid account

Discussion in 'EA Land/The Sims Online Stratics Forums' started by imported_sedusa, Nov 30, 2007.

  1. How does one go about changing from free trial to paid account? I've been asked that a lot and want to be sure of my answer.

    When the trials were limited to two weeks, it was automatic, you either canceled or it became a regular subscription.
    Not sure what it will be when there is no time limit....[​IMG]

    You probably have to go and enter your credit card info anyway.
    ???
    I guess.
     
  4. I just know that new sims in TC3 have been asking this as they want to change to paid accounts.

    I assume, unless its changed which is highly possible, that you would go to the website and update the billing info as normally done by entering the account name and the account password, then entering the billing info, and then activating the account from that list?

    Idk... I haven't seen anything on it. So I could be completely wrong. [​IMG]

    "login" (upper right corner)
    new login window opens
    enter member name and password
    back to TSO Screen
    "my account" (upper right corner)
    log in password again
    click on "subscription info" tab
    scroll down to TSO
    then (?) either "subscribe now" or maybe "change billing method"

    IDK, never had a free account. Hope someone who knows wanders in soon though. This is critical. [​IMG]

    I paid with paypal, to continue using one of my accounts when the trial ended. Payment was sent November 27. When I check my account info now, my trial is 'Suspended'. I was under the impression that changing from trial to subscription would be automatic? Especially since its been 4 days since I paid [​IMG]

    Should I just wait before contacting support, in the hope that it 'just takes some time'?

    It's automatic when you use a credit card - dunno about Paypal.

    The PC games (The Sims, The Sims2 &amp; expansion packs) are different from the online game. At one time a game package including discs was available in stores, but it hasn't been available for years.

    As far as I know the only ways to pay for this game is over the internet, either thru credit cards, paypal (?) or time cards. If they take checks thru the mail, I am not aware of it.
