Wii Shop Channel: Viewing Your Available Wii Points

In 2019, we will close the Wii Shop Channel used on Wii and Wii U, which has been available since December 2006.

Read this article for all the end dates for each service!

Wii Points are used to download content from the Wii Shop, and are stored on your Wii console.

To view your available Wii Points:

  1. Access the Wii Shop Channel through the Wii console's Channel menu.
  2. Once on the "Welcome to Wii Shop Channel" screen, select "Start Shopping."
  3. Your current Wii Points balance will be displayed in blue, near the bottom of the screen.
