January 24th, 2016 - Still can not buy ME3 DLC from Origin or Bioware. Same gray box appears for PC purchase on Bioware site. Must turn to less savory means of getting DLC.

Yes, I'm having this problem too. I have tried to buy Bioware points using both Origin and web site, getting an error after clicking Purchase. Dear support, can you please advise if this is going to be fixed?

This problem has resurfaced in Feb 2016.

 

EA support could only suggest I buy an EA cash card!  They would not answer my direct question of "Why is Paypal not working?"

This solution works.  Thanks, suggest this be bumped up and EA needs a kick up the BUM to sort it out.  Their product support crew in Bombay also needs to be told.

What they really need is a singularity up the bum followed by a quick warp.  We can only hope the impending detonation convinces them to price the DLC like every other product on the store.  Ie. In real money, not lousy Bioware Points.

You can also do it directly through Dragon Age 2 Bioware site. For some reason it is cheaper then through Origins.

Good Luck. Took me ages to find this workaround.

In case anyone else has the same issue - just choose another Bioware product and buy points through there - I did it through ME2.

Even site looked differently, which gave me hope, and purchase Went through smoothly.
