    one thing I will mention is if you select the option to skip password entry when opening the eshop, you will still need to enter the password to make purchases using a credit card or PayPal account

      @iFabzXr I tried it and it works almost exactly the same. On you click/tap the button that says My Nintendo. But instead of saying 15 and under and 16 and over, it just tells you to put in your DOB
