Can I limit the use of credit cards by a child account?

Applies to: Nintendo Account


This is not a feature of child accounts, but it is possible to place restrictions on purchasing download versions of software from the official Nintendo website.

Purchasing software from the official Nintendo website requires a Nintendo Network ID (NNID) to be linked to a Nintendo Account. It is possible to enable parental controls for the NNID using the system or console to which the NNID is registered.

Please note that if you wish to restrict in-app purchases on a smart device, you will need to check the individual settings for the relevant smart device. Please check the support site for your device for information.
