In Animal Crossing New Horizon, there is Nook Shopping. Do you know what it is? It is an app for the NookPhone in the game and it can be used by the player to be able to shop anywhere in the game. But, how to get the Nook Shopping app? Let’s find out the way to get it here.
Getting Nook Shopping App
If you want to get the Nook Shopping app, it is important for you to note that it may take time. It is because the requirement to get it is to put 100 orders through the Nook Shopping machine in Resident Services. It will take time for sure because you are only permitted to order up to five items per day. If you have made the 100th order, then you will see that the app will be installed on your NookPhone automatically.
Well, even though getting the Nook Shopping app takes time, however if you are consistent, you will get it eventually. It is better if you make a target where you have to buy at least five items from the kiosk every day from the start of your game so that you will be able to get the Nook Shopping app in less than a month, namely in 20 days. When you do this strategy, you have to make sure to continue to buy things. If you are in the condition where you do not want something to buy, you are able to buy items and then those items can be given to your villagers. Alternatively, you can send it to your friend.
For your information, the Nook Shopping app works like the kiosk. However, you can use it anywhere on your island and on Mystery Island Tours. Even though the Nook Shopping app works like the kiosk, but the Nook Shopping app on your Nook Phone does not have access to the banking system. In addition, it also does not raise the daily access Nook Miles bonus. As explained on How To Geek site, you are only able to order items from the Nook Shopping Service and those include Seasonal items, Promotional items and your own catalog.
Using Nook Shopping
Nook Shopping can be accessed either using the Nook Stop or the Nook Shopping app. As explained earlier, it is important for you to know that you are only able to buy 5 items per day. According to the Game8 site, here are the steps to use Nook Shopping.
- The first thing that you have to do is to choose the item that you want to buy. You are able to browse through special goods which update with your game progress or events.
- After that, you have to confirm your purchase or you can send it to a friend if you want. It is not like loan payments. You are not able to use your savings to buy items. You must have Bells on hand before you buy the items.
- Then, the item will be received by you the next day. If you do not want to wait, you are able to adjust the date on your system to skip a day.
- And now, you will receive Nook Miles.
