Found 25th Mar
One for people with multiple Switch accounts, the game is $29.99 usually but is currently 50% off so $15.

cheapest credit to get is $20 on PCgamesupply for £14.34.

mobile.pcgamesupply.com/catalog/product/Nintendo-E-Shop-20-Card

use the spare $5 towards something else or save for next time.

Is £33.49 on the UK store (on offer), £24.99 on smythstoys. By far the cheapest.

Better to create a separate US account as can have problem changing region back when have leftover credit

But it also uses up the spare $5 allowing you to change back the region - save a quid and only need one account - nice to have options

So I’ve just set up an American account with an online guide. Instead of having to buy credit and loading it, could I just use a credit card that doesn’t charge for foreign purchases? Or would it see that the American address isn’t where the credit card is registered. Would PayPal get round that issue if it is one?
Thanks

£11 on the Canadian store. Some people have apparently had more luck using UK debit cards on that than the US one so worth a go if you're trying to avoid buying top up cards.

but there's no state in canada that doesn't have a tax on video games (unlike alaska in the usa which doesn't) so you'd have to pay an additional $1.

so if not paying directly with card, you'd need to spend £19.16 to buy $35 cad eshop.

From what I can remember its hit or miss like with Xbox buying from other regions. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm pretty sure PayPal doesn't work - some cards seems too though.
Over the years I've picked up various international accounts for deals etc.

Anyway I have discovered that using a Hong Kong Paypal account that is linked to a virtual credit card (Monzo in this case but Revolut might work), associated with my Nintendo Switch account, I can buy games from any territory. So now I just switch my region on the website, load the card with enough cash, and then buy the game on my device. No need to worry about prepaid card codes or any left over change stopping me switching regions again.

You can't switch back if you have any credit. Get rid of it and you can switch, but you'll need to buy something. You could try the method I posted above, that worked for me when I did the exact same thing!

How do you do it?

To be honest not that bothered as 80%of time stuff is cheaper in us store but would be nice to be able to switch back, as was going to get resident evil revelations 2 (granted is cheaper in us site than the sale price here but had credit from gold coins which would of made it £7)
Thanks, in for one. We still get a lot of use out of the WiiU here, my kid loves it.

Interesting... Can you have 2 different PayPal accounts linked to 2 different profiles on one console?

If anyone doesn’t know how multiple accounts work, just make an account tied to a specific region by using a second/third email addresses and have all of them on one system. (USA account is essential IMO) Then when it comes to launching the eShop on the main menu the system asks ‘which account do you wanna use?’ And you pick the relevant country to which eShop you want. Simple.

On mine I have my regular UK account which has all my game saves on and numerous purchases, a JAP one (not really bought anything on that) and a US account. I basically redeem eShop codes from PCGameSupply (although some other people on here have suggested alternatives) as and when I need credit for them. Then when the games are downloaded to my Switch you launch the game and, once again, the console asks you to choose an account and I pick my regular UK account. Easy Peasy.

I haven’t tried doing the region switching myself, the fact that you lose whatever remaining currency you have on it kinda puts me off. I haven’t tried using PayPal or Revolut on it either, been gift cards only and I have yet to have any trouble doing it.

In my opinion it’s a bit more elegant compared to multiple accounts on the other two systems, like PS4 they’re tied to your accounts as opposed to the Xbox One where you can basically use one account and change the region on the fly. There’s pros and cons to each method but I do like how the Switch deals with it.
