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.
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.
