Posted 19th Apr
Has anybody (in the last 12 hours) successfully purchased from the SA estore?

Looks like they may have closed the loophole as Revolut and Barclays cards no longer accepted

I purchased Nintendo Switch family yesterday so not sure if they have done some update since. I paid using a Visa card and had no issues. Good luck.

They must’ve changed something. I’ve just VPN’d to SA and used DuckDuckGo to create a brand new SA account and still can’t link any cards (including Revolut)!

Thanks for the response.

I spoke with Nintendo support and apparently my account has be “put on hold” and can’t use Credit/Debit cards for 30 days.

No idea why, they couldn’t (or wouldn’t) tell me.

Will try again in 30 days.

Managed to buy Flashback from the SA store will points so not completely “on hold”

How strange. Hope you get it sorted. Halifax card seems to work very well
