What FIFA Points are?

FIFA Points Guide for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

 

FIFA Points are the FIFA currency used on the FUT 18 Store exclusively to purchase packs and FUT Draft entries.

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 18, gamers use real money to buy FIFA Points and with them they purchase in-game items (packs).

FP 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 and 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 left hand corner of any Ultimate Team menu from your console or Web App. If you never have bought FIFA Points, you will see a ‘0’ on the right side of a green icon.

Common Problems

Why you arefacing problems when trying to buy FIFA Points for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team?

FIFA Points Guide for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

 

It is not always easy to buy FIFA Points and FUT 18 packs. Let’s analyse the most common issues:

 

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, a Premium Bronze Pack, a Gold Contracts Pack or a Premium Bronze Players Pack. These packs can only be purchased with coins because they are very cheap.

 

My FP are not being transferred to FIFA 18.
The message that appears about being able to transfer FP from FIFA 17 to FIFA 18 is a one-time only transfer offer. If you’ve gone back into FIFA 17 to purchase FIFA Points after seeing this message, your points will not transfer over to FIFA 18.

 

When I go to the FUT store to buy FP, 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 FP haven’t been credited or are missing.
If you bought FIFA Points and you haven’t received it, check if your balance has changed. You can also log out of FUT and log back into FUT several times for the fix to work. If they are still 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 18 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. If you can’t use your credit card to buy FIFA Points, purchasing a pre-paid card may be a good option.

 

I can’t buy FIFA Points because I receive a message saying that my region doesn’t match.
To buy FP, 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.


 
 
 

FIFA Points Carry Over

How to transfer your FIFA Points to FIFA 18?

FIFA Points Guide for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

 

Carry over your FIFA Points from FIFA 17 to FIFA 18 with a one-time transfer until December 31, 2017. You are allowed to transfer your FP from FUT 17 to FUT 18. But you can only do it once. You can transfer your FIFA Points during the EA Access trial if you’re a member or when you buy your copy of FIFA 18. You can even buy some by the end of FUT 17 so you can use on the FUT 18 release date. In opposite side, it is not possible to transfer FIFA Points on the Web and Companion Apps. Log in to FIFA 18 on your console or PC to transfer your FIFA Points, then you’ll see them on your FUT Web or Mobile Companion apps.

When you connect to FIFA 18 for the first time ever, with the same account, the system recognizes you and asks if you want to transfer your old FIFA Points or if you want to delay that operation. From the moment you perform this transfer, you no longer will receive this message again and FIFA Points purchased in FUT 17 will not be transferred to FIFA 18 Ultimate Team anymore. You can only transfer FIFA Points from FIFA 17 to FIFA 18 on the same console. Since FIFA 16 you no longer can share FIFA Points between PS3 and PS4 and between XBox 360 and XBox One. You need to buy FIFA Points to the console you will use. It is not possible to share FP between different consoles.

The transfer is not reversible on console. You can’t move FIFA Points back to FIFA 17 once you transfer them. This is still the case if you’re an EA Access member. If you play FIFA 18 on EA Access and transfer your points but don’t buy the full game, you won’t get your points back on FIFA 17. PC is a little different. Because you have a single wallet of Points, the Points you bought and didn’t use in FIFA 17 should still be in your wallet in FIFA 18.
