How to Get the Nook Shopping App on Your Nook Phone in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

(Nook) Shop until you (Nook) drop

For those of us who go on cataloging parties for hours on end (you guys, it’s amazing), you’re gonna be ordering a ton of items from your catalog in the Nook Stop. At first it’s fine — after all, you get bonus Nook Miles for visiting the Nook Stop every day — but after awhile it can get a little tedious, especially when you want to check if you have an item and you’re far away from Resident Services. Isn’t there anything a villager can do to make life easier?

Turns out, yes — you can get the Nook Shopping app right on your phone! Here’s how:

  • Order 100 items from the Nook Shopping service at the Nook Stop.

That’s it! Super easy, right? After ordering your 100th item, some text will appear and congratulate you for ordering 100 items. To mark the occasion, they’ll put the app right on your phone for convenience. Now you can shop whenever you feel like!

Keep in mind that this will take some time to achieve, as you’re only allowed to order 5 items maximum per day from your catalog. If you time travel, be sure to order the maximum items possible that day; please note if you time travel back to a day you’ve ordered your max from, it will block you from ordering more. You can only order again on days you haven’t already used the Nook Shopping Service!

And that’s how it’s done! Did this guide help at all? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to check out the full Hey Poor Player Animal Crossing: New Horizons Guide hub for any other questions you may have!

Born at a very young age; self-made thousandaire. Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. Covered in cat hair. Probably the best sleeper in the world. Still haven't completed the civil war quest in Skyrim but I'm kind of okay with that. Too rad to be sad.
