PayPal Payment Option Now Available On Nintendo Switch

PayPal Payment Option Now Available On Nintendo Switch

In an update from Nintendo themselves, the ability to connect a PayPal account in order to purchase digital content is available.

While neither the Wii U or 3DS can use PayPal on-device like the Switch, Nintendo's online eShop for web browsers does supports the new payment method for buying games for those devices. Other consoles, including the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, have supported PayPal for years, but this is a first for Nintendo systems.

While the Nintendo Switch has found success thanks to physical media blockbusters like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the system's digital games marketplace is still finding its legs. Once its done, you'll not need to put in your PayPal password to make purchases (although you can set your Switch to require your Nintendo Account password each time, if you're anxious about random hands getting hold of your console). You can then buy games in different stores. And since PayPal accounts require a phone number from the region they're created for, it's not exactly a walk in the park to get things up and running, and you're probably just better off buying eShop cards through somewhere like PlayAsia. Goodbye, disposable income. It's been nice knowing you. The service allows for purchases online to be made without giving credit card information directly or even through a bank account.
