    I was trying to buy two Legacy Tokens from the Origin Store, but I had to make 2 separate purchases to get them.

    Is there any way you can make it so we can buy multiple things in a single purchase please?

    People have been complaining about this for a LONG time. I don't know if this effects everyone, but it certainly is a problem for a lot of people. I've always had to buy stuff one at a time.

    The problem is the Origin Store is run by a bunch of total idiots who mostly just sell whole games.... they fail to understand the concept of why a person would possibly buy more than one of any game... but don't have the wit to see that someone might infact want 10 of the Advanced Character tokens or 10 of the teleport tiles.... etc... since afterall they can't even grasp the concept of having more than one copy of UO.

    Maybe add a bonus "something" for purchasing multiple items?

    It has been this way since VISA got hacked and lost a ton of accounts to overseas hackers. This is one of the major reasons why people cant use out of country cards and EA is not the only major retailer to limit purchases. Yes it is a PAIN but at least they still sell items online with instant delivery on a majority of the items. There are places that will not ship until the card is cleared.

    People have been complaining about this for years, unfortunately judging by what devs have said in the past Broadsword doesn't have much control over the Origin store, EA still controls the account management stuff and Origin store stuff. So, no matter how much we talk about it nothing can be changed unless EA agrees to it, which is very unlikely since they have done absolutely nothing to improve it in the past.
