    I have enough paypal and was going to buy 2 $35 game cards so a friend and I can buy Animal crossing new leaf right when it comes out.

    Are there any sites that I can use to buy eShop cards w/ paypal?

    Also does eShop charge tax? Animal crossing will be $34.99, if I buy a $35 game card will I not be able to buy it because of tax?
    Thanks.

    I think maximuscards has the paypal option, not sure thou and if you use an Alaska zipcode, you don't get to pay taxes

    If you have a BestBuy near buy you could order from them and use store pickup(I think they actually ship the card, if you choose delivery). That is the only website I know of that takes paypal and is official, you can probably find other websites that sell MSP or PSN $ and they would probably carry the eShop cards as well.

    $35 eShop Card

    Yes they do offer free shipping but I can not guarantee that you would receive them in time since only the Standard id free and is also the slowest they offer.

    edit:
    To ensure that you got them in time you would probably need to use the Express shipping but that is $8

    Also will you have to update 3DS for animal crossing if it's a game cartridge?
    I'm still on last working firmware for ackeard. My DSi's l+r buttons are about broken so it's no fun to play on that,

    I bought 3 $20 cards from pcgamesupply.com. Couldn't buy a fourth because of the daily $70 limit but tomorrow I will have bought. pcgamesupply worked good and received the codes fast to anyone wondering to buy from them. Just a $3 activation fee

    I can tell that maximuscards is legit. I've bought many eshop cards from them because there's no place to buy them in Mexico. Don't know if they have a paypal option but you should give them a try. Also I'll be buying another eshop card today just to have money for Animal Crossing on Saturday/Sunday.

    Or you can get the Paypal debit card, which is free and you will be approved if your Paypal is verified, no credit history needed. The paypal debit card is MasterCard, which is accepted almost everywhere.

    maximuscards is a scam because I bought a 25 dollars karma koin and they give me a fake code and after 4 days its already been used and I check my account its not me that I used it and reported to maximus saying they will refund me in 5-7 days and waited for that day and said they need my paypal account, I don't have paypal account neither a credit card I used pre-paid card to buy another pre-paid card and still they don't listen to me no matter what I say and I tried to buy again 25 dollars from them and didn't work again and reported it saying they resell it and another 5-7 days but that card I paid for work for them not for me and that guy who got it got it for free and reported it to maximus saying again to refund me but still they don't listen to me that I use pre-paid card and I try it one more time! without reporting it to maximus and bought another 25 dollars from them so I tell to myself this might work if I wait for 4 days ive waited 4 days still don't worked , waited a week still not working and another week its still not working and tried to report then BOOM IT WORKED but not from me because they said they will resell it!....... is it me or if you report it to maximus they just give away the codes? and don't care about their customers? they just ate my 90 dollars for that I have reported this but maximuscard ignore it all I can say is STAY AWAY FROM THAT SITE

    Are you sure whatever you were getting (what even is a karma coin) wasn't region locked?

    I think the more worrisome part is the code already being used after a few days.
