How to Add Funds in Nintendo eShop Using Credit Cards

Step-by-step instructions on how to add funds to Nintendo eShop using a credit card.

Additional information:

As of September 2019, credit cards cannot be used to add funds on systems in the Nintendo 3DS family or Wii U consoles.

What to Do:

  1. Ensure that the Nintendo Network ID (NNID) on your system is linked to a Nintendo Account.
  2. Visit https://ec.nintendo.com/my/balance_add, select the payment method you would like to use and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the process.
  3. Once you have added funds to your NNID this way, you can use them both on the Nintendo website and directly within Nintendo eShop on your system.
