What’s Payment Handling?
We are buying your items on your behalf and we have to pay actual amount to a seller.
For example, you want to buy something at 10,000 yen from a store. Of course we have to pay same amount of money 10,000 yen to the store without any deduction. If you can pay 10,000 Yen in cash to us, there would not be deduction.
But payment from you is by PayPal. They take certain percentage of fee by deducting from the payment.If you send 10,000 yen by these online payment companies, we only receive about 9,650 yen and we cannot pay to a real store.
You need to add 4.1%+40 yen on the total to make up for the difference.

Domestic Shipping from the seller

It is range from 0 to 1500 yen range. It really depends which carrier the seller use, weight, measurement or where the seller is located. We only charge you actual amount we had to pay. Please understand we choose shipping method by our judgement if the seller give us shipping options. We choose most safety and reasonable method based on our experience.

Bank Wire Fee (If needed)

It is usually paid by buyers. If the seller doesn’t accept Yahoo kantan kessai, we charge fixed 250 yen per transfer. If we can send money for multiple auctions to single seller at one time, you just pay 250 yen for every auctions from a same seller of course.

Sales Tax (10%) (If needed)

If an auction seller is selling items for his/her business on Yahoo, they have to pay sales tax (10%) to the Japanese Tax Office. Some business seller charge 10% sales tax added on auction final price. It is usually described on the auction. But many cases, they don’t charge sales tax extra. They just think the final price is including tax. If the seller is selling items as his/her own personal items, you don’t have to pay the sales tax.

Tax or Duty in your country (If needed)

The customer has to take responsibility for import duty or taxes in your country. Please check your local customs office BEFORE you order.

We emphasise that you as the “Importer” are legally responsible for the accurate declaration of the goods and their value for assessment of tax and duty in the importing country. So although the Merchant may produce a commercial invoice, you are legally responsible for the information on the customs declaration and for any customs duties and taxes that may be due. This means that if you purchase goods from these Merchants, and the declaration is found to be false or misleading, you may be liable for financial penalties or even criminal prosecution and having your goods confiscated by Customs. We are not responsible for any mis-statements of duty or tax, whether by you or the Merchant.
