Switch eShop adding PayPal payment option
Posted on August 21, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News, Switch eShop, Wii U eShop
Update: The PayPal option has now been activated worldwide.
Original: The Switch eShop is adding a brand new payment option. Going forward, system owners will be able to use PayPal to add funds to their balance.
PayPal can’t be used directly with Wii U or 3DS. However, any game purchased on Nintendo’s website can be used with PayPal. That means if you’re purchasing a Switch, Wii U, or 3DS game on the site, PayPal is an option if you’re short on funds.
We are seeing the PayPal option on Switch in Japan at present. However, nothing appears to be live in North America or Europe. Today’s announcement did indicate that the PayPal option will be extended worldwide, so we’ll let you know if we see anything.
