Fixes For Origin Error Code 54005


  • Before quitting and trying any workarounds please make sure to retry the payment multiple times, in our research we have found many users who get success after 4th or 5th try.
  • If you are trying to purchase a subscription then your payment method should allow for automatic, recurring payments, otherwise, you will likely get this error.
  • If you are making the payment from PayPal then you must have a valid checking account or you must have a valid card linked to your PayPal account and it must be selected as the primary source for payments.
  • In case you are trying to use Prepaid debit cards then you can’t use Prepaid debit cards for this payment. Even if you are paying with PayPal but the card which is linked to your account is a Prepaid debit card then still your payment will not proceed.
  • If you are paying with Paypal and you have a valid debit/credit card linked to your PayPal account then don’t go through the Paypal instead connect your card directly to the Origin, and then proceed with the payment.
  • If nothing above helps you with the error then try connecting over a different internet connection. If you don’t have access to any alternate Wi-Fi connection then you can choose to connect over a mobile hotspot connection.
  • If the error persists and you are purchasing through the app then try accessing the origin through your desktop browser, but if you are already using the Origin from your browser then try using their app.
