  2. If this is your first time using the Wii Shop Channel, read the User Agreement and click "I agree" if you understand and agree to the terms. Click "Okay" after reading the Wii Shop description.

I bought a wii point card and I went to the shop channel but it would not let me put the points on

Did you by any chance purchase this Wii Card used? If so someone else likely used the card before selling it to you. If not, then it could be a problem with the way you are entering the Wii Card, it could be a problem with the Network Connection, or it could be a problem with Nintendo's server. Try calling Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700

How to get wii point

Hi there, there are a couple of ways you can get Wii points. The first is to actually purchase them through the Wii Shopping channel. When you start the channel go to the "Start Shopping" section. Then select "Add Wii points", then select "Buy Wii points with a credit or debit card". This was you can add points by following the on screen instructions.

Secondly, any time you buy a Nintendo licensed product you will get a card in the product packaging with a silver rub off panel. You can rub off this panel to reveal a code. You need to go to the Wii shopping channel again, then select "Start shopping" and then select "Add Wii points". Instead of select "Buy Wii points with a debit or credit card" you can select "Redeem Nintendo Points Card". You will then need to enter the activation code that was under the silver rub off panel on the card that came with the Nintendo Product.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

How do i get wii shop chanel


To get to wii shop channel first you need to configure your system
Configure your Nintendo Wii for a wireless Internet connection. The only way to access the Wii Shop is by having an Internet connection and a wireless router. The Nintendo Wii has a built-in wireless router that can pick up signals from wireless Internet connections. Make sure that your wireless Internet router is close enough so that the Nintendo Wii can pick up a signal.

Loading Wii Shop;
Use your Wii remote to select the Wii Shop from the main Wii channel menu. The Wii Shop is located in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If your Internet access is not set up yet, then you will be prompted and automatically brought to the Internet Configuration menu. Once your Internet is set up, you will either be brought back to the Wii Shop or the main channel menu.

Navigating the Main Menu
Look at the main Wii Shop menu. Here you will be given two main options with a couple of general options at the bottom of the screen. The first option is to look for games for the virtual console. The Virutal Console contains games from past systems like Turbo Grafx 16, NEOGEO, NES, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64. Once you have loaded the virtual console menu, you can search games by most popular title, new titles, system, genre or price. When you have found a game that you are interested in, press the "A" button to see a more detailed description with a couple of screen shots, and find out how many Wii Points the game costs.

Wii Points
Purchase Wii Points directly through the Wii Shop by using a credit or debit card. You will use the Wii remote to point and select all of the card holder information. The minimum amount of Wii Points you can buy is 1,000 for $10, so if you want a game for 700 Wii Points, then you will have 300 points left over for future purposes. Instead of using a credit card through the Wii store, you can purchase a Wii Points card at a local retailer. These cards come in different point values, and 100 points represents a dollar.

Downloading the Software
Finalize your game purchase by confirming how many Wii Points will be deducted from your account. Once you have done this, the game download will begin. While it only takes a few minutes to download, you can see the progress by watching a Mario character jump and hit a brick. Once he has reached the third brick, your download is complete. From there, you can continue to shop in the Wii Shop or play the game.

Wii Ware
Check out the other option that is labeled as "Wii Ware." Wii Ware is a lot like the Virtual Console, but everything created here is new and original for the Wii. You can get updated channels like the new Photo Channel or get exclusive Wii Shop games like "Midnight Pool" and "Family Table Tennis." The games here actually are interactive Wii games, and you can get the full game for a lot cheaper than a new Wii game from a store.
