Can I Set a Nintendo eShop Spending Limit for My Child?

There are a couple of different ways that you can manage your child's Nintendo eShop budget:

  • A parent/guardian account can restrict Nintendo eShop purchases for the child's Nintendo Account
  • Use a credit card or Nintendo eShop Card to add a specific balance to the child's Nintendo Account. The child will only be able to make purchases up to the limit of their Nintendo eShop balance.
