You can use Nintendo eShop Cards as a fast, easy, and safe alternative to credit cards when purchasing games and other content in Nintendo eShop on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS family systems or on the official Nintendo website*. With £15, £25 and £50 cards available, no matter what your budget is, there’s a card to suit you. Nintendo eShop Cards also make great gifts for Nintendo fans!
Simply scratch off the silver panel on the back of a Nintendo eShop Card to reveal the 16-digit activation number. Enter this into Nintendo eShop on your Wii U or Nintendo 3DS, Wii Shop Channel, or Nintendo DSi Shop to add the funds to your balance.
There are no additional fees to pay either: a £15 Nintendo eShop Card simply adds £15 to your balance. Visit our How to buy games section for more information about how to purchase software from Nintendo eShop.
