In late 2015, Nintendo finally lifted the lid on the new account program that it had announce much earlier. It was revealed that it would be called 'My Nintendo' and that it would aim to unify gamers' experiences across different platforms. While the account system still has yet to be rolled out, Nintendo has opted to get a head start by offering customers the option to register for their account now.

Follow this link, and you can either create a new account from scratch, or pair an existing NNID, Google+, Twitter, or Facebook account. The process is extremely simple and shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Once logged in, you can see a status screen that shows basic information such as what accounts you've linked and what email you're using. Assumedly, this will also function as a place where you can keep track of purchases, points, and more when the full system goes live, but only time will tell.
