Always get error "There was a problem processing the transaction. Contact your credit card issuer or select another payment method. For help, visit support.intendo.com".
Coming from someone with a lot of experience buying from the Argentinian eShop, some cards simply do not work.

I’ve also found that after a few consecutive purchases on the same day, most working cards will start to be rejected and you will have to wait until Nintendo’s system ‘resets’ and allows you to use the card again. I do not know how long this period is, but I had no issues using my card again after a week or so.

To the people buying Moving Out just because it’s cheap. I bought it on release and had serious buyer’s remorse. The controls feel sluggish and unresponsive, and paired with the poor physics engine, the game is way more frustrating than it needs to be. I played about 10 levels and never picked it up again. Would not recommend this game to anyone.

Made an an alt Nintendo account and paid with a BMO MC with the instructions from the first page. Codes came almost instantly!

Picked up Hades, Hollow Knight, & Stardew Valley. Ended up being $22.99 on my MC.

I'll add these games to the queue:
1. BOTW expansions
2. Axion Verge
3. Smash Bros(haven't played since the first month -_-)
4. Castlevania Collection
5. Megaman Collections
6. Disney Afternoon Collection
The majority of the games you listed are not available on the Argentinian eShop. Not every game that is available in NA is on there, nor is every game cheaper than it is in NA.

Don’t bother doing this. Make a secondary, throwaway account to use only for these purchases. Instructions have been posted several times in this thread.

picked it up for the kids, at this price though cant really complain. id rather gamble on a <10 game vs a full priced 50-80 one that you'll have remorse on.

Haha! It's certainly being touted as Indie game of the year for a reason. Love this developer and the games they put out.

Thanks. I was using chrome and had consistent payment failures. Now I tried firefox and the payment went through with rogers world elite mastercard!
Grabbed Hades, Stardew Valley, Hollow Knight, Celeste and Cuphead for $33.65!

My understanding is, and perhaps someone can correct me if I'm wrong, is that whatever region you bought the game in, you have to buy the DLC from that region.

I found changing the difficulty setting in Moving Out made the game a lot more fun as you can try to get bronze, silver or gold rating instead of timing out.

Fair enough, but the controls are still a floaty mess.

Games are not region locked with the Switch. As long as you buy the dlc in your region, it will work.

Thanks OP. Ended up changing one of my alt accounts to Argentina. Ended up getting Hades, Stardew Valley, Hollow Knight, and Katana Zero. Codes came pretty much instantly attached to the bottom of my email receipt.

Total came out to 24.68.

Thanks OP! Was a bit upset about not getting Hades during Xmas time for $22 cad.

Picked up both Hades and Stardew Valley for $19.xx cad total. Created a new account online and followed the OPs details. Codes arrived in my confirmation email instantly and I am already downloading them on my main switch user account. The only difficulty was reading Spanish Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Cold Sweat.

Edit: used Rogers WE card.

I did a little digging and the truth is somewhere in between. Some games only have one variant floating around so buying the DLC from another region does not matter. Other's release different versions of the game (often it's a language support thing) so if you buy the DLC from a region with a different version of the game, it'll be incompatible with the game itself.

I removed the word "can" from my previous post, so it now states "As long as you buy the dlc in your region, it will work". If buying DLC from other regions like Splatoon it doesn't work because it has regional content, and some games will have language issues. Was reading a forum where it was stated "from the Home menu screen, you press + over the game whose compatibility you wish to check. Select Software Information > Nintendo eShop. If you are directed to the game page for the game that you have selected, then in all likelihood, the retail cart is identical to the US version, however, if an error appears, then the two versions are likely different, and any DLC will be incompatible."
