How to defeat Error 601Follow

To preface this, in case you had not seen my previous thread, under some rather extenuating circumstances I had found that not only Square-Enixs new billing system given errors on all of my cards (including one that, well frankly, NO business with a shred of sanity would turn down) but that I happen to not be on a continent where Ultimate Game Cards are sold nor could I switch my account to my Europeville address proper in order to use a time card as a choice that I COULD buy here readily.

"Square-Enix, take my money!" has pretty much been the battle cry of the week. I have pulled Excalibur from the stone and wished to share my workaround with you. Without further pomp and circumstance, I give you the answer:

Step 1. Have a PayPal account and have some money is said PayPal account.

Step 2. Go to the Mogstation and figure out how much Crysta you are going to need to buy the subscription plan that you want. (In my case, since I just want to get on with a month of playtime to tide me over, I figured a $20 card would fit the bill.)

Step 3. I won't be accused of advertising for what website I used to do this, just know the result is what matters. Find a website that sells Ultimate Game Cards and offers online delivery. (In my case, I probably couldn't buy with my credit cards at said sites because I was trying to make a USD transaction from a foreign IP, thus triggering every red alert in E-Business).

Step 4. Check out and pay using PayPal. Then wait for your order confirmation that should give you your redemption code from Ultimate Game Card.

Step 5. Go back to Account.square-enix.com and buy Crysta using the pay with Ultimate Game Card option then put in the redemption code.

Step 6. Buy your game time with Crysta at the MogStation

Step7. Play FFXIV like a boss.

This will 100% guarantee you slay the 401/601 beast of doom and assure the rare drop of Sanity+1 for the weekend. Happy gaming everyone!

Someone posted a theory that its because mogstation don't ask for address or something to that affect, and banks will reject charges because of this.

If that's true, you can simply call the bank and request authorization.

Im still on "free trial" but Im 100% certain I'll be in the 601 bunch, so I'll try that.

Otherwise, got my paypal account to save the day.

Unprecedented Event too, we now have to make guides on how to pay for subscriptions lol
