To fix the Nintendo Switch error code 2813-0998, you just have to update your Nintendo account by selecting a country that supports eShop.

Do you have a question- I live in a country where the Nintendo eShop service is restricted, then how can I bypass this restriction? 

Well, this is quite easy which I am going to tell you right in this guide. 

Note- To update your Nintendo account country or region, you would have to need a second device such as your smartphone or computer. 

  • Once you sign in, go to your profile and select the Edit option. 
  • Now, in the country/region select The Americas.
  • Now, open Nintendo eShop and select the United States as your region when asked. 
  • Once you are inside the eShop, set your Zip code to 97330 by going to the location settings and then clicking on Change. 

The Zip code 97330 is to be set to make sure that you’ll not be paying the additional state tax – since you’re not a resident of the United States and not obliged to pay those taxes.

Once you do this, the error code 2813-0998 will not appear, and you will shop without any issues.
