    I just learned that Wargroove, Stardew and Katana Zero all are less than $10 dlrs but i already tried with all my credit cards with no luck so i wanted to know if anyone was able to buy from here.

    If you did let me know please!!

    You may need to enable purchases in South America on your cards, in most cases this shouldn't be needed for online purchases but I think there are some exceptions. At least where I live, South America is blacklisted by default.
    It's also possible the Argentina eShop performs a region check and it's just not possible to use with non-Argentinian cards. In that case, you have two options, either get an eShop card of the correct region, or use an "Universal" virtual Visa card service like Entropay.

    I'm from Canada, and I just bought Wargroove easily.
    1 - From accounts.nintendo.com, change your country to Argentina
    2 - Visit the Argentina eShop (https://store.nintendo.com.ar/)
    3 - For payment, use your real name and address, but select a random Argentinian province, insert a random 8-digit as your DNI (e.g. 12345678) and use your ZIP code (in my case Postal Code) as CPA.

    I paid using my Rogers MasterCard and received my code by email a few minutes later.

    I'm from Australia and sadly this method didn't work for me. Followed these instructions precisely but the transaction failed attempting to use my Visa card. Checked with my bank and it was not blocked on their end for security reasons or anything like that so I can only assume the Argentina eShop won't accept my card.

    If anyone has any luck using a virtual credit card I would love to hear about it. Entropay was probably a good option but that shut down a couple of months ago and a bit of googling hasn't revealed any obvious replacements to use for something like this.

    Yeah, sadly it doesn't seem to work with every card, but I did just buy a few titles for a friend using his account and my credit card, and it worked.

    You would have to give me access to your eShop account, if you're comfortable with that. Tu peux communiquer avec moi en privé en français si tu veux.

    I tried this method and it worked. I'm from Brazil, I paid using a virtual MasterCard from Nubank and received the code instantly.

    Hi anyone that managed to purchased the games, can PM me I wanted to purchase, Wargroove, Hollow Knight, Katana Zero, Celeste.
    I'm willing to pay any tax for the purchase, and + 10%, via paypal.
    If the codes can be activated only on the account who purchased them I can give my newly created ARG account that I tried to do it myself.
    PM thanks, only people who already managed to do it.

    Why is it no longer working with the Rogers Card?

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Can you buy 2 games for me and I transfer you the money with a little extra, none of my Canadian card work. Is the Rogers Card still working?

    I tried buying titles for another member with my Rogers MC, and it didn't work. Maybe the card got "blacklisted"...

    hi, buying from Argentina was cheaper than buying from Brazil’s eshop directly in BRL?

    Unsure... from my understanding these are region specific I think... from what I recall when I looked to switch from Canadian Store to US it said something about losing balance...

    So was finally able to make a purchase. Made a little mistake though and ordered two codes of each... (my account logged out and added items back before logging in so didn't realize the cart had two of each).

    Bottom line, I have an extra code for Wargroove and Katana Zero if anyone is interested PM me...
