What is FIFA Points ?
FIFA Points are the FIFA currency used on FUT 15 Store exclusively to purchase packs.
It is considered a virtual currency as it meets the requirements of the European Central Bank definition (type of unregulated, digital money, which is issued and usually controlled by its developers, and used and accepted among the members of a specific virtual community) and of the US Treasury definition (medium of exchange that operates like a currency in some environments, but does not have all the attributes of real currency). In the case of FIFA 15, gamers use real money to buy FIFA Points and with them they purchase in-game items (packs).
FIFA Points were introduced on FIFA 12 Ultimate Team, exclusively for PC users. One year later, EA Sports added this currency to the other platforms – Playstation, XBox, iOS e Android – causing all the platforms use the same payment system. Before FIFA Points existed gamers bought packs paying with Microsoft Points or with Playstation Network credits.
A huge part of EA profit is made thanks to FIFA Points sales.
You can check how many FIFA Points you have, looking to the top right hand corner of any Ultimate Team menu. If you never have bought FIFA Points, you will see a ‘0’.
How to Buy FIFA Points ?
The only way to buy FIFA Points is through the game’s store. They are not sold in the FUT Web App (except for PC gamers) or in the EAS FC Companion App. If you play on PC, there is an option in the Web App (‘get more‘) for FIFA Points that will take you to Origin.com so that you can make your purchase in the Origin Store. If you play on Xbox or PlayStation, you can only buy your FIFA Points on your console.
It is possible to buy FIFA Points in the EA Access early access
You can purchase FIFA Points for FIFA 15 starting from launch day, except if you play in PC or if you are an EA Access subscriber. You will not be able to transfer your old FIFA Points until the FIFA 15 release date, unless you have early access.
To buy FIFA Points, please follow these steps:
Open your console’s Ultimate Team, browse to ‘Store’ and then select ‘FIFA Points’.
FIFA Points are sold in bundles. Choose how many FIFA Points you want to buy. You will be redirected to Origin store, Playstation store or Microsoft Marketplace according to your platform. Purchasing larger FIFA Point bundles gives you a bigger discount and more bonus points. This offers great value to users who buy several packs in Ultimate Team. For example: buying a 2,000 FIFA Point bundle will give you 200 bonus FIFA Points, which is enough to buy two extra Gold packs.
If you do have enough funds, you will be able to proceed with the payment and your download will start immediately. As soon as it ends, the FIFA Points will be added to your balance. However, if you do not have enough funds, you will have to add some money to your console’s account. The payment methods available are: credit and debit card, Skirll Wallet and Boku SMS (PC); credit card, PayPal and pre-paid (Playstation and XBox).

As you can see from the table, there is no proportional relationship between packs paid with FIFA Points and packs paid with coins. The realism is that packs are cheaper with FIFA Points and others with coins. Always analyze if you are not paying too much for your pack.
It is not always easy to buy FIFA Points and FUT 15 packs. Let’s analyse the most common problems:
There is no option to buy packs with FIFA Points. Only with coins.
Be sure that you are not trying to buy a Bronze Pack or a Premium Bronze Pack. These packs can only be purchased with coins because they are very cheap.
My FIFA Points are not being transferred to FIFA 15.
The message that appears about being able to transfer FIFA Points from FIFA 14 to FIFA 15 is a one-time only transfer offer. If you’ve gone back into FIFA 14 to purchase FIFA Points after seeing this message, your points will not transfer over to FIFA 15.
When I go to the FUT store to buy FIFA Points, I get the message ‘The Store is not available at this time. Try again later‘.
Check if there is no maintenance happening and try two more times. Most of times it works. Otherwise, you will have to wait and try later.
I can’t purchase packs using FIFA Points and coins in the EAS FC Companion App.
To purchase packs using your FIFA Points and coins in the EASFC Companion App, you will need to purchase FIFA Points on your console. However, FIFA Points will only be visible on the Android and not on iOS. Additionally, iOS players are restricted to Coins and will not be able to see their current balance in the app.
My FIFA Points haven’t been credited or are missing.
Neither the FIFA Team nor EA Support will ever request your account information through the Xbox or PlayStation messaging system.
If you bought FIFA Points and you haven’t received it, check if your balance has changed. If they are missing, ensure that you have secured your account completely (changing your FUT, Origin, email password, or FUT Secret Question).
If you are based in the US, UK or Canada, you should click here. Otherwise, use the country selector on the top left hand corner of the page. Select the platform that you use to play FUT 15 and then click ‘Next‘. Click on the ‘Select a topic‘ drop-down menu, then choose ‘Billing / Purchasing‘ as your topic, type in details about your topic under ‘Please tell us a little more about your issue‘ and click ‘Next‘. You may be asked to log in with your Origin account email address and password, if you are not signed in. For last, you will have to select the contact method that works best for you from the ones that are available in your region. Don’t forget to keep your reference number that can be used in future contacts. General rule, Electronic Arts will answer you up to 15 days.
To increase your chances of success, be sure to have the following information available before contacting your Game Advisor:
- Your proof of purchase
Affected persona name (Origin ID, PSN ID, Xbox Gamertag)
Date the FIFA Points went missing
How the points were lost
Missing Points Description (How many?)
Any additional details that may be important to your issue
I can’t buy FIFA Points because it doesn’t accept credit cards.
It probably doesn’t have to do with Origin, Sony or Microsoft. In some regions, it is not allowed to use credit cards to buy on the internet. It is the case of Brazil, for example.
I can’t buy FIFA Points because I receive a message saying that my region doesn’t match.
To buy FIFA Points, three regions have to match: game region (disc or downloaded file), Sony / Microsoft region and DLC region (downloadable content). You can create a new account to match with the game region but you should pay attention to the FIFA Points region. The DLC is locked by the region of the game, not the system. So, for example, if you’re buying EU disks/downloads, you need EU DLC.
If you can’t use your credit card to buy FIFA Points, purchase a pre-paid card may be a good option.
FIFA Points Carry Over
You will not be able to transfer FIFA Points or FUT items across platforms.
FIFA Points may be transferred between Playstation systems (PS3-PS4) and XBox systems (XBox 360-XBox One) as many times as you want. It works like coins and cards in which you can transfer in the two ways. However, it is not possible to share FIFA Points between different platforms. So if you buy them on Xbox 360 for FUT 15 you can’t use them on Playstation 4, but you can on Xbox One.
You are allowed to transfer your FIFA Points from FUT 14 to FUT 15. But you can only do it once. You can even buy some by the end of FUT 14 so you can use om the FUT 15 release date. When you connect to FIFA 15 for the first time ever, with the same account, the system recognizes you and asks you if you want to transfer your old FIFA Points or if you want delay that operation. From the moment you perform this transfer, you no longer will receive this message again and FIFA Points purchased in FUT 14 will not be transferred to FIFA 15 Ultimate Team any more.
It is possible to transfer FIFA Points during the early access period but only on FIFA 15 between Xbox 360 to Xbox 360 or from PS3 to PS3.
