for the moment i'm playing EVE with a 14 day trial. But i'm nearing the end of my trial run and i'm in the possession of a retail cd-rom and a valid cd-key. Now i'd like to keep my existing game character from the trial and still use my retail copy with a month's gameplay included?

A lot of work and effort went into my char and i wouldn't want to start all over again? Is there a way to achieve this?

Because in the Account Management section on the site i couldn't find an option anywhere to do this?

Can anyone provide me with useful information regarding this matter?

Thanks in advance.

I know when I went from trial to full version I could not find a way to use the retail key.

So ended up just upgrading the trial account on the account management website and paying the $20 odd to purchase the full version online. Kept my character this way.

Now they have character transfer for $20, you could probably start a new account with the CD key and transfer the Character over. But as this would costs the same as upgrading a trial account to a full online, dont think it would be worth doing.

I'm sure if you went to Account Management (on your left) or some sort of account management button on the login screen you SHOULD find an option for converting your free trial to a regular subscription.

But you do have to pay 19.95USD or so do to so. Did you pay for the retail?

I just came off 14 day trial not so long ago, I just paid $25 dollars in the account managment section which is only $10 more than a normal month so not too bad.
