So can you no longer just log into your account via browser and change your region then go on the switch and launch the eShop, but game then change back to uk region on browser and download on console??
Managed to nail it by setting up a US Paypal Account and linking that...
Hi vaderag, I've bought a couple of times from the eshops (uk and russian) and paying with paypal I never had to buy store credit. I dont remember exactly if I either bought through the Switch or through the webpage with internet browser, but one of those methods and with PayPal allowed me to pay only the price of the game without buying store credit. I would suggest you try all methods.
Seems like the only option, but does put the price up a bit I have games from SA, Russia and Japan here and I didn't have to buy credit for any of them... Not sure why this is different Is G2A the cheapest?
Get a switch eshop code from G2A or something
