Japan Shopping Service

Last Updated: 2019 February 16
With this update, I have streamlined the order process. Orders no longer need to be submitted via an excel file. I have included an online calculator to assist with your calculations for your budgeting purposes.

This service is for those who wish to purchase anime and doujin items from Japan. I can purchase and consolidate orders from the following online retailers: Amazon Japan , Animate , Book-Off , Booth.pm , CQueen , Horin Love Books , Meikido , Melonbooks , Movic , Suruga-ya and Toranoana.

Combined international shipping for items from the above-mentioned shops is possible. Please note that EMS is the only available shipping method.

Everything about this service is in the following sections. Each section can be expanded to reveal more information. If this is your first time, or first time in a long while placing an order with me, please do read them. The order form is in the last section “Place Your Order”.

How to Pay

I accept the following payment methods:

  • Paypal
  • Paypal echeck (I can only process your order after the echeck has cleared)
  • Credit Card via Paypal for non-Paypal members
  • Fund transfers to my Singapore bank account

I work with the currency SGD (Singapore dollars). Paypal is able to convert any currency into Singapore dollars.

To know how much the quoted costs in SGD stands for in your currency, use a currency converter website like www.xe.com.

How much will it cost?

How much will it cost?
The payable amount consists of 2 parts:

1) Cost of item + shopping service fees

– Listed prices are in Japanese Yen.
– Buying multiple items from the same store usually entitles you to combined domestic shipping discount.
– If +税 is stated next to the price, this means that the 8% tax is not included in the price, and you should include it in.
– If there is a 税込 next to the price, it means that tax is already included.
– I will calculate for you exactly how much you have to pay before confirming your order, so don’t worry.

Calculation method:
(Item Price) JPY / 50 = Payable amount in SGD

[Based on exchange rate of 1 SGD : 50 JPY. Exchange rate includes shopping service fee, cross-border transaction fees and bank transfer fees.]

2) Cost of domestic shipping within Japan + Shipping to You

This payment portion will only be required when your purchases are ready for shipping and you choose a shipping method.

Domestic shipping differs for each website. I will choose the cheapest possible option. Domestic shipping for each website ranges between 140 to 400 yen. If you’re purchasing from multiple different sellers and this is a concern for you, I can give you an estimate on the domestic shipping costs on your request.

EMS is the only available shipping method and the shipping duration is about a week. Refer to Japan Post for the rates.

An additional charge will be factored in in light of packaging costs, cross-border transaction fees and currency exchange fees. Please use the online calculator below to convert estimated shipping cost in JPY to SGD.

Terms & Conditions

Please read my Shopping Service FAQ to understand how it all works before placing your order to avoid any misunderstandings. Once you engage my shopping  service, it is an indication that you have read and accepted all the terms and conditions and will not be allowed to back out of the transaction without receiving negative feedback in return or request a refund should you have a complaint that I have already addressed.

Place Your Order

As of 16 Feb 2019, I have streamlined the order process. You will no longer have to submit your order via an excel file regardless of the number of purchases you have. (Customers who have previously placed orders with me via the excel form method and wish to use it may continue to do so). . All you have to do is email your order to me using the following format:


Email subject: Japan Shopping Service – “Replace this with Your Name”

Your full name:

Payment method:

Your Paypal Email Address: (only if paying by paypal)

Shipping destination: (Just country will do for now. I will only ship the package to the address stated in your paypal payment. If you state your address here, it will be disregarded)

Your feedback page (if any): Only required if you are a new customer wishing to make payment via Paypal.

Examples of feedback page:

If you do not have any feedback from past transactions, you must be a verified account holder, and your shipping address must be the address in your Paypal account. If you’re using someone elses’ account to pay, please change the shipping address when paying my invoice. If you were referred by my friend / customer, telling me his/her name helps too.
