Recommend purchasing Bioware points via the EA/Origin website directly.

I had the same problem could not buy an upgrade and I had the same error "The overall error While processing your request error. Please try again later."I solved the problem. I bought Bioware points through https://social.bioware.com There I acquired points, then in Origin I bought DLC. Maybe this can help and I hope it will. The points I bought through PayPal. (sorry for the grammatical errors)

I've got the same problem, was looking forward to playing ME3 Leviathan DLC, but the usual paypal method of adding the bioware points is no longer available. As I only have a debit card and not a credit card, it looks like theres no way for me to get this at this time.

Bioware points

★★★ Newbie

Hi Guys, (and or girls),

 

      Guy's is generic anyway! I can't seem to buy any bioware points in the store, i select a product, say a specter pack. Select the perchase bioware to pay for the selected pack, and the program won't let me through. it says that extras are unavailable. This has been going on for over a month now so it can't just be a connection problem.

 

The error message is..

 

TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE this action could not be completed. we may be experiencing an unusually high server load or under going maintenance. Please try again later. 

 

ARG!!          Please help!!!!

 

                            Best regards John

Lots of Issues with ME3 since I downloaded it a few days ago....need help!

★★★★ Novice

I have ME3 for my PS3 but thought I would get it for my PC so I could play all
three games and carry along the same Shepard from beginning to end.  But I've
had no end of trouble with this game.  I've been trying to download some of the
new content and can do all the free stuff but not the stuff I have to pay
for....go figure that one out.  Every time I try to them I get a message saying
the server is busy and try again...I've been trying for 3 days now...come no one
is that busy!  Also I have yet finished a Multiplayer game as at some point
during the game it freezes goes black and I get the message that Mass Effect 3
is not responding.  Twice this happened at extraction....!!  Any helpful ideas
on how to fix this...oh and my Shepards face often shows up as being totally
blacked out, its rather scary looking.
Any help on how I can fix some of this
would be great.  Rather disapointed that I'm having so many issues after minor
ones with the first two games.

It's lists $20 on the Origin site:

http://store.origin.com/store/ea/en_US/pd/productID.226584800

Where is it listing them for $25?
