Update: The PayPal payment method has now been rolled out in all regions and is ready available for use. 


Original story: A new payment method is making its way to the Nintendo Switch eShop, giving users even more options to fund their accounts. 

The popular online payment system PayPal has become available for residents in Japan and is a first for the company, after not being available on previous systems such as the 3DS and Wii U. 

While the new payment option has only been rolled out in Japan at the time of writing, it can't be long before the same privilege is extended to North America and Europe. As soon as that happens, we'll let you know. 

Are you happy PayPal payment is now being made possible? Will you use it? Let us know.
