You don't. As long as your Origin account is the same as your account on the Sims 3 website, it automatically registers your game there too. Read more about it here:

As soon as you can download your game from Origin you should see a product key (= serial number) in your game details there.

There are two different kinds of codes:

16 digit ones are for limited edition Store content. Those can be redeeemed here: https://store.thesims3.com/myAccount.html and then you'll find the item in your thesims3.com purchase history to download to your game: https://store.thesims3.com/purchaseHistory.html

20 digit ones: Those are the product or serial codes which you need to install the game.

You should have either gotten two emails (check your spam folder) or if it's already in Origin, you should find it on there (righ-click on the game - product code)

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
