@JRJalapeno hi my problem was resolved I waited a full 30 days without trying to buy anything at all and it was fixed I also read an article that said its a temporary response when you buy a set amount of games in a set period because of a hacker who hacked the eshop and stole Fortnite Credits

I haven't been buying a lot of games for a while now. Been busy with my 18m old 😊. Mine just stopped working and never fixed itself. Thank God for PayPal

@JRJalapeno Oh, good! Glad it worked.😉

Thx for the link!

Yeah, ever since Nintendo implemented some security upgrade circa spring 2020 to combat a rash of nintendo accounts getting hacked. Some people's started having issues with their credit cards being accepted. The recommendation was to contact Nintendo if it happened, but paypal was the workaround. Here's an NL article from that period.

Thanks! I've been using PayPal now with no issues. I called both of my cc companies and no problems with either. Just Nintendo being wonky again 🤷‍♂️

I had the same problem for making TOO many purchases from the Eshop....i just had to wait around 30 days before making ANY purchase.
(as @sebas150015 said)

Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but I have encountering the same problem, not just with my main account. But newly create account as well!!

Omg... how can this happen with new account though??

I am in the UK and have tried many UK issued cards, none get passed the 9001-2470 (web) or 2813-2470 (on console)

I even have my other newly created account having the same issue with region set to HK, using HK card trying to shop on HK eshop... still the same error... worse thing is HK eshop do not support PayPal !!!

Have anyone got this fixed? or had to wait for it to fix itself?

@Blackrosewaifu9000 Thanks for the advice... Interesting that I weren't successful even with a brand new account though!

I guess I just need to learn to be patient! sigh

@jackymg You are welcome
I actually also tried to make a second account just for that. Needless to say, it failed and i had to wait for those AGONYSING 30 days before purchasing anything.....

should I hold the temptation and stop buying even using PayPal (with my other accounts in different regions)? Or just stop trying card payment would be enough to reset this “soft ban”.

I contacted Nintendo before posting here, but they are quite useless on this topic.

@jackymg hi if all the accounts are linked then you won’t be able to purchase things on all of them but you should definitely wait 30 days maybe a bit more and everything should be fine

Definitely waited more than 30 days already.

But today, I changed my account to HK region and tried to make a purchase using my genuine HK card. No joy.

Sigh. Not sure how much longer I should wait before trying again!! Darn.

@jackymg does your eshop open error free and are you able to play online matches in Splatoon 2 Fortnite etc.? (sorry for the late response)
