How to Add or Change Saved Credit Card Information on a Nintendo Account

In this article, you'll learn how to save new credit card information or change existing credit card information on a Nintendo Account.

Additional Information:

  • Users under 18 are not able to save credit card information.

  • One credit card can be stored per Nintendo Account.

  • Credit card information stored on your Nintendo Account does not carry over to a linked Nintendo Network ID (or vice versa).

  • You can add or change saved credit card information on the Nintendo Switch eShop or through the Shop menu settings on the Nintendo Account website. Any changes to saved credit card information will apply to both the Nintendo eShop and website settings.

  • You can delete your stored credit card information at any time after it has been saved.

  • We may receive updated information from your issuing bank or applicable payment service provider about the credit card that you stored in your Nintendo Account. This means we may update the saved credit card's number and expiration date if it is replaced, or it expired. This helps ensure that your subscriptions automatically renew, and your purchases complete successfully, even if your credit card information changes.
