Default Nintendo eShop Gift Card shop online?

Hello. Since I can't buy Nintendo eShop Gift Cards in my country, I need an online shop that sends the code of the card to the email address you give them. My parents don't have compatible credit cards and even if they do, I can't just go say "Hey can you give me your credit card info so I can buy Mega Man II from the Nintendo eShop?" because I just got my 3DS about a week ago and they paid most of the money for it so I can't make them spend more for me. And if you're asking how I'm gonna pay on the website anyway, I will try to find a way to add funds on it via PaySafeCard because it's the only way I can pay online on my own.

Thanks!

I found a UK website which accept PaySafeCard: Buy Nintendo 3DS eShop Points cards online
But (I suppose that) you'll have to switch your region to UK to have a valid code confirmation. Then, after you bought your games, you can switch back to Greece and play to your games, but the money balance will be locked to UK. (So, when you want to buy other games, you'll have to switch back your region to UK).

Thanks a lot But the site doesn't look that reliable. I'll have to test and see. Thanks again.

Sorry, but I can't use US gift cards. You can't change the region to US on the European 3DS. Thanks, though.

Amazon. I think they may accept the card that you are talking about and you can get the code instantly after you order.

There are reasons Australian eShop cards differ from the American ones. If your country doesn't sell them, a card from another country might not work.

Yup, it's not the same zone. Australia is with the European zone, not the US nor Asia.

Hello there. My name is Gino and I work for eshopcodes.co.uk. You said our site didn't look very reliable. Did you give it a try anyway? Are there any other members who've used our website?

eshopcodes.co.uk is part of Online Prepaid Services. We're a Dutch company who specialises in the online distribution of gift cards.

Any European eShop card should work on a European nintendo device. For instance if you buy a 3DS in Japan you would need Japanese eShop cards. We are looking at the possibility of adding Eurozone cards to our co.uk site. These should work in Greece.
