Accidentally bought a downloaded version of Pokemon Sword instead of Pokemon Shield, is there a way to swap them?

GetHuman3947491's Refund an Order issue with Nintendo from November 2019

Help with my Nintendo issue
The issue in GetHuman3947491's own words
I was trying to buy the downloaded version of Pokemon Shield instead of Sword. ... Thursday night I was trying to use my eCards to download Pokemon Shield, but I ended up buying Pokemon Sword by mistake. I haven't opened it yet on the console and was wondering if it was possible to switch it for Shield.
If possible, switching the downloaded game out, or a refund and removing the game content from the switch (again, if possible)! So that I could go get Shield.
I'm actually a very new customer. I was so focused on using the ecard code that I didn't pay enough attention to the game.
I've looked online and it seems digital refunds are rare. Since I didn't open it, and want a game for the same price, my friends suggested I try anyways.
