Default Adding funds to eShop

Hi, I'm trying to add funds to my sons account for a 3DS. I bought a Nintendo eShop digital card online. Now I cant figure out how to get the funds added to his eShop account. The game says to use the code off the back of the card. No back to a digital card. The account # on the front of the card has to many characters. How do I get the funds added?
