  1. why ea won't accept paypal for the SA upgrade is ludicrous...

    i feel w/ all the hack's , etc it'd be a no brainer to use paypal when buying my code's but no.....

    can anyone explain this?

    Hmm, then get a pre-paid credit card.
     
  3. the reason i'm trying to get across is paypal is a well known widely used service for online transactions.

    using your atm, credit, or debit card imo is risky.

    it just strikes me as odd that they wouldn't use a reputable company on a product such as this...

    Yeah it can be risky. But that's why you can use a "pre-paid" credit card. You don't have to worry. It only uses what you put on that card.

    If you put 30$ on it, you can only charge up to 30$ on it. Can't go over. It's essentially a gift card, but they call it a credit card.
     
  5. righty o got ya.... you'll have to forgive me i'm all out of smart ass comments at the moment.

    anyway yeah that would prob do the trick.... but i usually use paypal... no big deal just ranting..

    Use the PayPal plugin. it will generate a secure card number for you to use at an online store. It works great. I have used it to purchase from the uogamecodes site many times.

    Funny enough I just bought SA and at the bottom of the EA Store page is an option to use Paypal...

    I dunno where your looking, but you can use paypal and its on the store page!

    If you look carefully the option is shaded out and it says this product doesn't accept paypal or something like that.

    I copied this from the eHow website. I was going to make my own, but it's already done, so why invent the wheel. I'll probably post this in it's own thread so people can actually find it.

    Are you tired of visiting the PayPal website every time you need to check your balance? What about giving out your debit-card information to websites you aren’t quite sure of? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to check your balance from anywhere and generate a debit-card number with the click of a button? Then it’s time you installed the PayPal Plug-In. This handy toolbar will not only make using PayPal easier, but will keep your financial transactions secure as well. Best of all, it’s easy to use if you follow a few simple steps.

      The PayPal Plug-In is easy to download. All you need to do is access your account and click on Profile. On the Profile Summary page you will see a Financial Information section. Click on the PayPal Plug-In link and scroll to the bottom of the page There you will see a statement that reads, “Don’t have the plug-in on this computer? Download it now.” Click the link and choose Save File. Depending on your connection speed, the download should happen rather quickly.
    2. Step 2
      Install the plug-in. Click the icon that was downloaded to your desktop. Once you hit Run, the software will ask you to close any browsers you may have open. Once you’ve closed the browsers, click Continue for the installation to begin. Once the installation is complete, you will have the choice to restart your computer now or later.
    3. Step 3
      Use the plug-in with your favorite browser. The software works with most Windows-based browsers. After you restart your browser, you should see the new toolbar located at the top of your browser screen. To use the software, simply click the arrow to choose the feature you would like to access.
    4. Step 4
      The PayPal Plug-In offers several different features. First of all, it allows you to use PayPal anywhere, even at sites that don’t accept this payment option. The software also allows you to check your balance and print receipts. Last, but not least, it helps you avoid fraudulent websites.
    5. Step 5
      Protect your credit- and debit-card numbers. The Number One reason you should use the PayPal Plug-In is to protect your finances. With the software, you’ll be able to generate a new card number for each store you shop at. You can even select whether or not you want to the number to be valid for multiple uses, or just one.

    sure thing. Seems to come up quite often. People want to use PayPal and gamecodestore doesn't accept it.

    The PayPal plug in works great and is no problem to use.
