It seems that Nintendo of Europe is removing the ability to add funds via credit card to the Wii U and 3DS eShops next month for EU and UK.
This is strange. If they're linked to the same Nintendo Account that's also linked to a Switch, you should be able to add funds with a credit card on the Switch, and they'll be reflected on the Wii U/3DS eShops. Also, the same eShop cards work for all three consoles. So, it's not like you can't still buy things.
It's not clear yet if this will also happen to other regions. I saw one comment speculating that it might have something to do with new European regulations, but I don't know anything about that.
It seems a little too soon to pull the plug on the eShop for those systems already, so I'm not yet convinced it's a sign of that.
