Top Up Your Nintendo eShop Funds and Get Unused Game/DLC Codes

Although there is no way to send a gift in the Nintendo eShop whether on-device or off-device, there are a few solutions to this problem. Nintendo eShop cards are available in most retailers, and players can use the prepaid card to add funds to their Nintendo eShop account for future purchases. The Nintendo Switch has been around for some time now, since then the game library for it has exploded. If you’re looking to gift a friend a certain game you’re out of luck, but you can add funds to their Nintendo eShop account with the use of AmazonPay or Nintendo eShop gift cards. With the Nintendo Switch being region free, all you have to worry about is the currency you’ll be purchasing when it comes to Nintendo eShop cards. This also applies to game codes and DLCs that can be acquired when buying a physical copy of the game with the other additional content in code form or digital form.

How You Can Get Nintendo eShop Cards and Codes

There are many ways to add funds to your Nintendo eShop account. Either by using a credit card, AmazonPay, or Nintendo eShop gift cards you can buy your game digitally without having to go to the mall or your gaming store.

Nintendo eShop cards and Nintendo eShop unused codes vary depending on which country you live in. Since Nintendo eShop gift cards are by far the most accessible for everyone, they are usually found everywhere and even sold by people through social media. There are four types of amounts when buying a Nintendo eShop Card, a $10, $20, $35, and $50 one. Take note that these are for the Nintendo Switch, there are also prepaid cards for the 3DS and Wii U with a different design that is not compatible for the Nintendo Switch.

In addition to that, when buying these Nintendo eShop cards, be sure to take note on what currency they are in. While the Nintendo Switch is region free, switching from region to region is prohibited when you have funds in your account on whatever region you have chosen. To be able to switch back and forth, you would have to first spend all of your funds, so it’s preferable to get prepaid cards on the region that you have chosen. For Nintendo eShop codes, be sure to check on what region is the game on. For example, you are currently using the US region but you got a EUR Nintendo eShop unused code. You can easily switch regions and input the code there to get the DLC or game.

How will the seller deliver?

Option 1:In-game, Face to Face Delivery

Sellers will select this method of delivery if they intend to meet your character in-game with one of their own characters. Usually a seller will coordinate a time and location in-game to meet your character.


  • Be sure to confirm the time to account for time zone differences
  • Confirm which Shard or Server the delivery is to take place in case your game world has more than one.
  • Never, under any circumstances, return gold, item, etc. to the delivery character if ever asked. In the event the seller asks you to, please take A screenshot and report this to PlayerAuctions Customer Support.

Option 2:In-game Mailbox delivery.

Some sellers will select the option to deliver gold or items directly to an in-game mailbox. This option is less popular for larger Games like WoW, but is still viable amongst other games. This option can be convenient for smaller orders because you do not need to coordinate time of delivery.
