Frequently Asked Questions
Please introduce your services
We offer 4 types of services:
- Shopping Proxy: to help you buy items/products from Japanese Online Stores. Most of Japanese Online Stores do NOT support overseas Credit Cards and cannot ship overseas. For example, suruga-ya. So, you could use this service as an online shopping cart in Japan. Service fee starts at 300JPY(approx. $3) per URL.
- Auction Proxy: it is very similar to "Shopping Proxy", but it is for auctions and mainly for YAHOO! Auction. However, you do not need to add funds to your account, you can contact us to increase your bid price. Service fee starts at 500JPY(approx. $5) per URL.
- Convenience Store Payment & International Shipping Transfer: these services are for advanced users and cannot be explained in 2 or 3 sentences. Details here
