So I am thinking of importing a NA 3DS so I wonder If I will be able to access a NA eshop in Eu region?Is it possible to use EU credit cards?if not whats the best place to buy Nintendo Prepaid Card(US).
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's to late to stop reading it.

1) Your North American 3DS will be American, so you will have Access to US/Canadian, Mexican and Brazilian eShops, according to the country you set it's region to.

2) You can not use EU credit cards if the region set is USA, I user my Honduran credit card on the Mexican eShop without any problem, never tried Canadian or Brazilian eShops though.

3) I buy my pre-paid cards here:

The The first time will be a hassle because you will be requested some means of confirmation that you are the owner of the credit card used but once confirmed any subsequent transactions will be fast, they e-mail you the code and sometimes it took just 10 minutes.
