Payment options when purchasing download games on the official Nintendo website

When purchasing download games from Nintendo eShop through the official Nintendo website, you can use the same payment options which exist for purchases from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U:

  • Payment with funds that already exist and are usable through your Nintendo Account. Note that the first time you make a purchase after March 1st 2017, you'll be asked to merge any funds connected to your Nintendo Network ID with those usable through your Nintendo Account. Afterwards you can use the same funds on any console connected to your Nintendo Account.
  • If the funds that are already usable through the Nintendo Account are not sufficient, it is possible to add additional funds using a credit card or a Nintendo eShop Card. Nintendo eShop Cards are available at many retailers across Europe.

Please note that parents can restrict the use of a Nintendo Account or Nintendo Network ID for purchases using Parental Controls. Find out more about Parental Controls.
