Trying to buy a game from Origin India as its lots cheaper.
Ive followed this method:
Access india vpn through, hola
add game, to basket
sign in, as normal
proceed to, checkout
go back to, uk vpn
checkout using, paypal

When I get to..got back to, UK vpn it just sits on the india store or goes to origin.com

Any suggestions?

sign out of vpn/turn off hola just before login/just after you've added to basket (don't go back to vpn after this step either)

Not gunna happen that way as you are still trying to trick that you are still in india, hence when you turn off at just before login you won't get that option as india [email protected] seem to have paypal.
Mexico does mind :-/
If you want me to try and help via Team speak 3 im free for a bit?
I did a decent guide a while back if not, ill try and find it

Massive on india and mexico, both are different but both offer great value

That's an example for pre-order but they are very different on prices you need to check exchange rates as both offer different deals

For starters, make sure your Origin account has a primary payment option set (you can do this on the origin client) Then exit the origin PC programme.

STEPS REQUIRED:
1) Download a VPN Hola extension for Chrome

2) Connect your VPN to a Indian server, then click the deal link.

3) Search what ever game

4) When it asks you to login to your origin account, disconnect from your VPN (or turn hola off). **Failure to do so will make this trick not work.

5) Continue through the checkout procedure, Paypal is not accepted on the Indian store so Debit/credits cards only. UK address Works fine for me so your bank shouldn't run into problems.

Is there a disadvantage of just paying with a card option? Rather than using paypal, the only reason I wanted to use paypal is so I know the exact price and other posts have said to use paypal

1) Download a VPN Hola extension for Chrome

2) Connect your VPN to a Indian server, then click the deal link.

3) Search and Add Far Cry 4 Gold (Rs 2,700/approx. £27.33) or far cry 4 normal edition (Rs 1,799/approx. £18.21) & Assassins creed Unity Gold edition (Rs 2,700/approx. £27.33) or assassins creed unity standard edition (Rs 1,799/approx. £18.21) to your cart

4) Go to your basket and proceed through the usual checkout procedure, chrome doesn't always translate correctly, but it shouldn't be too hard.

4) When it asks you to login to your origin account, disconnect from your VPN (or turn hola off). **Failure to do so will make this trick not work.

Theres no disadvantage other than you credit/debit card may make a slight charge where as paypal only charge what you pay at the time.
