Help with Mail Orders

Recommended Posts

Hello,

            I was wondering if someone could help me with mail orders from an artists' official site. I sort of "accidentally" placed a mail order for some of VAMPIRE ROSE's CDs (wasn't really accidental, I *do* want to buy them, but I wasn't necessarily trying to place an order just then, just test if I could even buy them/if they would ship to me) Anyways, I've never done a mail order before, I usually buy from places like Closet Child or CDJapan, so I'm wondering what my next step should be.  I received the follow up email from him about a bank transfer and shipping, but my Japanese isn't great, so I'm not sure what to do next.

 

            Any help is greatly appreciated :) (Also I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place.)

Yeah I'd cancel, bank transfer is a pain even within your own country.
I recommend https://www.facebook.com/Moonsparkle-Chriss-Sales-508371462671699/

 

He's really quick, and his fee is cheaper than a lot of those shopping sites, he's bought a handful of things for me now. Only way you might lose out is in currency conversion, so if you're paying with dollar or something around the same rate, the GBP is painful right now.

 

I'm not sure if he does independent websites since I've only bought from Mercari, but it's worth a check in.

 Yeah, I'm thinking about maybe just doing that. I just wanted to support him lol. But I got some recommends on FB saying I should use Western Union and such so I'm looking into those.

Funny you should mention Chris, I actually asked him a few hours before your reply, lol. I've bought a ton of Mercari stuff through him. But, unfortunately he says he can't do bank transfers. But someone else on FB offered to help me. Thinking about either going that route or just buying the CDs from Yahoo auctions with fromjapan.

Depence on wher eyou buy your stuff, if puresound the costs for shipping layed around 300 yen i believe.

If you are asking how much money they ask per purchase for themselfs, that would be 500 yen per batch.


I do not use fromjapan so i do not know if the exact details are still accurate as of today.
