|Nintendo eShop Region||Price|
Unfortunately, both Brazil and South Africa Nintendo eShop regions don’t accept PayPal and YouTrip card. You could try using your local bank-issued credit or debit card to purchase directly, but bear in mind that you’ll be subjected to pesky foreign transaction fees, poor exchange rates, or worse – the dreaded Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC).
With all that in mind, we’re buying from the Australia Nintendo eShop instead, which is the safest option that accepts YouTrip card. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get one of the cheapest Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the world.
1. Change Region to Australia
Once you’ve logged in to your Nintendo Account on your desktop, go to your profile to change your country/region of residence. Click on the country you currently have selected, and a drop down menu should appear. Select “Australia” to save changes.
2. Access Australia Nintendo eShop on Your Nintendo Switch
Once you open the Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo Switch, you’d be prompted to sign in again. Don’t panic! You need to sign in again because you’ve changed the region on your Nintendo account. Once you sign in again, you should have access to the Australia Nintendo eShop.
Once you locate Animal Crossing New Horizons on Nintendo eShop, select it and “Proceed to Purchase”.
3. Add Funds to Nintendo Account and Buy Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You’ll be prompted to add funds to your Nintendo account. Simply select “Credit Card” from the menu on the right and enter your YouTrip card details. After choosing to top up with the exact amount needed, go ahead and hit “Purchase”.
Now that you know how to get the best bang for your buck on your Nintendo Switch games using your trusty YouTrip card and its Wholesale Exchange Rates, it’s time to lose yourself in the immersive world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
