    I have had a nintendo account for awhile now. Everything in my name (username,eshop credit card info,ext....)

    Just got my two kids ages 12 and 10 a switch for Christmas. I have made both of them accounts on the console that they can use.

    Now my question is if i sign into the EShop with my information and purchase DLC ext... will my kids be able to use that stuff on their profiles or do they each need to have access to the Eshop on their accounts?

    Same question for online play like mario kart 8. Do i need to do anything special so either can play online?

    I'm thinking it won't be necessary to purchase again. It will be tied to your main account in case you delete your game data, but anyone on the same device should be able to access the game and dlc content.

    They have always used my account to play games before on Wii U and wii but now they are getting older and want their own accounts.
    Just want to make sure i got everything setup right to avoid any confusion.

    Everyone on the device can use software that's been purchased by a single account

    They'll each need to have a Nintendo Account to go online
