If you subscribed to Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ through Steam, you need to manage your subscription through Steam too.
If your Steam account shows a subscription payment but you’re not showing as a Subscriber in game, here’s what to do:
Start a subscription
To subscribe to Star Wars: The Old Republic, you can set up a recurring payment or use the one-time payment option.
Set up a recurring payment
Make a one-time payment
Go to swtor.com/buy and log into your account, then opt for a one-time purchase of 60 days non-recurring game time.
Or follow the steps above to add a subscription but choose the one-time purchase option rather than a recurring subscription.
You can pay your subscription using any major credit card.
Depending on which country you live in, you might have the option to set up your account using a debit card or PayPal.
Set up ELV as a payment method
To use ELV as your chosen payment method, please log into your account on swtor.com. Once you have logged in, click on Subscription in the Account Management section. Select Change Billing Method and follow the onscreen instructions.
How currency for your subscription works if you move abroad
Once your subscription is set up, your selected currency will not automatically update should you change country of residence. However, if you cancel your original subscription and then set up a new one, the currency will change to reflect your new geographical location.
If you chose a payment method other than a one-time 60 day subscription (Credit Card, ELV, Direct Debit, PayPal) your payment will automatically be renewed at the end of your billing cycle. If you have chosen to pay for your subscription using a Game Time Card, you will manually have to add a new card when your play time has expired.
If you would like to change the way you pay for your subscription to Star Wars: The Old Republic, start by logging in to your account on swtor.com. Click View more for next steps.
If you wish to cancel your subscription to Star Wars: The Old Republic:
Note: Completing the above process and cancelling your subscription will terminate your recurring subscription. If you still have prepaid time remaining on your account, you will still be able to play as a subscriber until that time has run out, even if you have cancelled your subscription. Once your prepaid time finishes, you will become a preferred player. Learn more about what will change on your account when you become a preferred player.
To reactivate your Star Wars: The Old Republic subscription:
If you run into any problems setting up or cancelling a subscription, please contact the SW:TOR Account and Billing support team.
If you switch your payment from a subscription to a Game Time Card, the 60 paid days from the card will start once your previously purchased subscription time has come to an end.
To check a recurring subscription that is active on your account, please first log into your account at www.swtor.com.
Here you can view information about remaining pre-paid time on your account, the subscription package you have chosen (if you have a recurring subscription) and you can click on Show Your Payment History to see all payments that have been made on your account.
