Just to be sure you know... The Origin expansions will not work with the Steam version of the game - after registering your game on the Sims 3 website, you would need to download and reinstall it through Origin to be able to use them. The Steam version of the game is only compatable with the Steam bought expansions.

Re your problem buying on Origin, I probably won't be much help as I have never used it, however possibly make sure that you have registered your game on the Sims 3 website and you are logged in using your Sims 3 login info - all EA accounts are linked, so you just use the same login for Origin. If it works like Steam then it might not sell you the expansions if it doesn't think you already own the base game.

Instead of downloading it straight from Origin, I bought it on the Sims 3 website, and it worked.
