I don't think SE has sent the emails telling us to put our codes in yet.

(I've been trolling all the forums.) Smiley: smile

Been reading the beta forum thread and here's the gist of it from what I could tell...

If you've been spamming the button... expect to get a LOT of emails for the code... this is probably why the site is spitting out error messages...

Stop spamming it's making it worse!


And here's a reply from SE customer service to a EU customer who posted it in the thread:

Dear customer,

Thank you for contacting our customer service.

We are very sorry that you are having issues redeeming your pre-order code on the website.

Please make sure that you are attempting to redeem it on the website ( and that your code is an 18-digit code.

The site is currently under extremely heavy traffic and we suggest that you try redeeming your code again later.

Please make sure that you are logged out of any other Square Enix Members website before logging on

If you are still unsuccessful by tomorrow, please contact us again with the following details: - Your pre-order code - The website you are attempting to redeem your code - The error message displayed when attempting to redeem the code We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Kind regards,

The Square Enix Support Centre Team.

Beta forums?

What's the link to those?

Every link I've found to SE FF14 forums gives me a "down for maintenance" message fro weeks now..

Couple more updates from Reddit:


The #FFXIV Pre-Order Code Redemption website is currently experiencing a high volume of traffic which may result in errors being displayed. If you receive an error when attempting to redeem your code, we ask that you please wait and try again later. Rest assured that our teams are working on the issue and once we have further information, we’ll be sure to update you all!

UPDATE2 - yondaimee604

IF YOU GET the ERROR: 3 message, KEEP TRYING you WILL get the code eventually (it took me 4 tries only). After you get the 12 digit code you WILL get the region error, this is NOT because of a mistake YOU did, this is because they accidentally sent EVERYBODY to the JPN site to redeem the code and not the NA site. As soon as they link the proper NA site, everything should and WILL work.

Nope. I just went and tried to enter my code and the register code button is grayed out now.

I got my code EMail this morning at 11:01AM CST. I went to the pre-order page and input the code and was asked to confirm the contents of the pre-order package, and once I confirmed that it took me to the downloads page to install the client. I didn't have to do the last step because I already have the beta 4 client, but as far as I can tell, I completed the entire process. This was after several hours of failed attempts at registering with my code from the first EMail which I never actually got to work according to the error messages, but I got the EMail with my pre-order code nonetheless. I am not confusing the codes either, I had the same errors as everyone else this morning.

6:03pm dst and still getting Error 3. Tried 4 times.

So, let me understand this. I got an early access code from Gamestop, and then I have to take THAT code and register it, and then they send me ANOTHER code, and then I have to take THAT code and go to my ps store to redeem it?

1) go to preorder website: ex.:
2) enter the code that you received when you preordered the game (like Gamestop receipt)
3) get an email confirmation from SE saying they got the code that (ex. Gamestop) gave you and then...
4) get another code from SE in that email and then..
5) go to PS store to redeem SE code section that they sent to us in the email and then
6) enter the SE code that was sent in that email then...
7) download the client software or update the client software.

Really? all that? or am I missing something important?

I'll try again in a couple of hours.

Trust me everyone. Set your alarms for 9:40am EST. for tomorrow. I will be just over two hours into my work day and the email will pop. I will then stare at it for the next 7 working hours while I read your threads about registering flawlessly. It's just how it works.
