When you said this, do you mean you have to link Nintendo account to Switch first before you can redeem the code, or have to link first (meaning you must have a Switch or borrow one and put your account on it) before your account can purchase a digital game (via web browser)?

Thanks again.
You must have a switch. Open up eShop on your switch, sign in to your Nintendo account. Then considered as linked.
Either that or create a user profile on your switch, then link that user profile to your Nintendo account. Either way confirm need a (physical) switch present.

Only after the above linking step is done, then you can purchase games digitally via eShop on the switch or through Web browser on Nintendo eShop website.

You can borrow a switch first from your friend if say your switch is under delivery etc. Create new profile on your friend's switch, link that profile to your Nintendo account. Thereafter you can purchase games via web browser eShop. After that delete/remove that profile from your friend's switch.

To test it yourself:
You can also just try to buy a game via web browser on a Nintendo account that is not linked to any switch. 100% will prompt error code asking you to link it to switch first.

I think whoever updates the prices on the colombian eshop screwed up. It should say 32,000.00 instead of 32.000,00. Look here: https://store.nintendo.co/hollow-knight

So it should be $13 instead of 13 cents lol. The other south american eshops probably have similar errors.
I think they use period and commas differently. 32.000,00 is equivalent to 32000. For it to be 13 cents the price needs to be 320.

That's why I'm thinking either
1) the eShop prices (consolidated prices website) got the numbers wrong.
2) there was a promo price at 320 but now it's over and the eShop prices (consolidated prices website) haven't updated to the non promo price. That website is usually not updated real time meaning by the time you see the discount it has already started hours or a day ago and when you still see the discounted price the promo is actually over few hours ago or a day ago.

In that case, eshop-prices.com is wrong because 32000 colombian pesos is 13 sgd

Thanks for the explanation. One last thing to confirm: this works the same way for all region/country eshop? Even for Colombia and HK, where your eshop purchase doesn't get added to your account directly, and instead they send you a code? Regardless country, you must have a physical Switch linked to your account?

Can't confirm cause I haven't tried personally. But I would assume the same requirements apply regardless of eShop country.

definitely the triple A title of the console for 2019...

i'm surprised this game doesn't get much attention (even though it is the last platform to be rolled out on)

scales very well with handheld...
