Hi, does anyone here know if the NA eShop accepts debit/credit cards that use foreign currencies? Thanks.

You'd probably have to set your region to the country where they use that currency.

No dice :/ it only allows me to change my location via U.S. zip codes. Unless you meant through system settings. Thanks for your reply though.

I don't see why not - you can use an American credit card anywhere in the world, they charge in local currency (in this case it would be US$), and the card is billed in its own currency. For example when I was in South Korea my card was charged in won, but it showed up on my bill in US$ after the credit card company converted it using the going rate (or slightly worse than the going rate). But unless you've got specific high-end cards you usually pay assorted fees for those conversions so it could be quite expensive.

Thank you for your answers, but I found that the local mail station allows to make debit cards that are converted from the start to the specific currency (I guess it's because people like to travel to other countries).
