Apologies for asking but what is the advantage for collecting Bells on this site. Can you redeem them anywhere? I remember collecting Bells when I played a few years ago and a Bell Shop was supposed to be coming. Did the Bell Shop arrive?
Currently, you can only collect bells. There isn't anything you can bells for yet. Development for the Bell Shop is pretty much on hold for the time being. That doesn't mean that the Bell Shop is completely off of the table, but it just means it's not what Development team is currently focusing on. You can read more about the reasoning behind decision in this announcement here. Hope that clears things up for you.
