Animal Crossing: New Horizons: How To Get The Nook Shopping App

Shop from the comfort of your phone.

There’s a whole lot of stuff you can find in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, whether that’s from sinking some Bells, finding them in trees/balloons, or crafting them from a recipe. You can even order them from Nook Shopping in Resident Services with them then showing up the next day in your mailbox.

However, it can be a bit of a nuisance having to trudge over to Resident Services every time you want to place an order, especially because they should really be available from Nook’s Cranny as well.

If you want to cut off some of the hassle, you can eventually get an app on your NookPhone that allows you to place Nook Shopping orders wherever you are.

The kind of items that are available from Nook Shopping are all stuff that you’ve had before, but there’s also a few rotating items that change each day, including fences. To unlock the Nook Shopping app on your NookPhone, all you need to do is order 100 items from Nook Shopping in Resident Services, which you can find on the plaza of your island.

This “challenge” should be completed fairly naturally, though it might take you upwards of a month if you’re just starting out in the game as you can only order five physical items per day from the terminal.

You can also purchase recipes as much as you like, though there isn’t much variety in them so you may just end up with a tonne of duplicates if you’re trying to speed your way through to the milestone.

Like everything in New Horizons, we recommend that you just take it slow and appreciate the progress when it naturally comes. Nothing changes when it comes to ordering items; they still take a day to arrive.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. From our review:

“New Horizons is a great continuation of an already fantastic series of games, and paying back Tom Nook’s loan has never been so fun.”
