PayPal is now available as a payment option for digital content

Customers in the U.S. and Canada can now use their PayPal accounts to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch™ system, both on the system and in the Game Store on the Nintendo website.

This convenient way to pay joins the current payment methods of credit cards or Nintendo eShop Cards. When purchasing content, you’ll see a new PayPal payment option at checkout. The first time you select this option, you will be asked to link your PayPal account with your Nintendo Account via your PC or smart device. Once you complete this step, you’ll be able to use your PayPal account as a payment option for future purchases.

Linking your accounts will also allow you to use PayPal as a payment option on the Nintendo website when purchasing content for the Wii U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Please note that users must be 18 or older to link their PayPal account with a Nintendo Account. The country setting of a user’s Nintendo Account must match the country setting of their PayPal account.

Hm, something doesn't quite match

We noticed that your account's country setting is set to Canada, but you're viewing the U.S. version of Nintendo.com.

If you’d like to purchase a game or see product details for your region, please switch to the Canadian version of the site.
