  3. Eshop won't accept my credit cards

I don't know if anyone has encountered this maybe I'm doing something wrong. I'm trying to sign up for the family plan and everytime I get to the add funds and purchase it tells me my credit card isn't valid ... I have two one I have used for all my switch online purchases and the second I used fifteen minutes ago at the store. I don't understand what's going on. I would gladly (in fact prefer) to use an eshop card but that doesn't seem to be usable. Can I use one after the credit card part? I'm in Canada and the error code is 2813-1470 any help would be appreciated.

Could you get around that by buying digital cards from Amazon and adding funds that way?
Sorry, I never had that problem, so I don't know if that will work.
Best of luck!
Now, say my name.

Can you try and PayPal if you have the card registered with PayPal?

Haha okay buddy :p

I did Google it nintendo basically says try try again. I have no idea what's going on and I have tried finding the digital cards that pay for online directly (not the classic eshop cards) and I can't find a place in Canada that sells them even Nintendo site says "available at select retailers" but no actual retailers are listed so... thanks for that nintendo...

Never had PayPal never saw the point of it. Can you register and use it right away? I remember a friend from a while back said you have to wait like a week before PayPal becomes active.

Tried to borrow a friends credit card. Same issue happened. This has become frustrating. And Amazon Canada doesn't have those cards either. Why is this so bloody buggery difficult? I can go down the street right now and buy an eshop card that works for everything else but not this. I don't even want to try buying a prepaid.

Is there a place to change the name of the owner of the card? It only has number, expiration and cvv and postal code but the error report wants you to ensure the name was put in correctly. Help?

Call Nintendo, I don't think there is much any of us can do for you. Sounds like an error you need to contact support for.
