I’m guessing this is old... since PayPal is now available, you can buy any game from any region right from your Switch...

My question is what are the best games not on the US eshop?

@DizzyDee81 i tried PayPal for XBC2 to get the AUS version when i realized they and Japan got the release a day earlier than here because of time zones... i don't remember why it wouldn't work but it seemed to suggest it was something regional just like you can't use credit cards in eshops out of country.
Are you sure this works? Also are there any sites that sell AUS cards like the sites previously mentioned for Japan?

@Inertiacreep well, I’m an Australian, but I’m living in Malaysia in SE Asia and my Switch account is connected to the US eshop. I’ve been able to purchase games with PayPal no problem. I’ve noticed sometimes the Timezone messes up the release day and sometimes it doesn’t... I think that’s on the publisher.

I was wondering.. I bought some games digitally from different regions because price differences. Now if I delete them from the system and trying to redownload them later, should I change eShop to that region where I bought them or can I redownload from any eShop I’m logged in? Anyone tried that?
Currently running low on internal storage so I’ll need to delete stuff..

PayPal is region locked. I get all my digital codes from Amazon.com

As long as you have an American billing address it's fine and card payment always works

This question i think has been asked lot of times but i live in Europe. And let's say i "take a quick vacation to South Africa and buy a game from their Eshop". I buy game with SA account and it's playable in my Europe account? What about updates? Do i need to login again to SA account?

Any Way to get a virtual US card or something similar to buy on the US eShop? I changed my Nintendo account region from EU to US because I wanted some sale from there. I used a eShop Cars and now I have $0.01 and cannot forfeit It in order to come back to Europe again.
I tried my european Visa and free taxes Zip codes, but It does not allow me to finish.
Any sugestions?

...So...is Amazon Japan just done with digital prepaid codes completely? Apparently I can only pull up the 9,000 one, and from what I can tell PlayAsia has them overpriced or something. (not to mention I could never pull up their cards either, I just get an error or I'm redirected to the home page.
EDIT: Ok so they fixed a few things...whateverz. lol
