Akishop Service

Akishop-Service is a system built into Akishop.jp that makes it possible for the customer to deposit funds in order to buy things from other places in Japan. Basically, it's a service that we started to help customers buy things that are not sold directly by Akishop.jp.

How it works

So basically it works like this:

1. First you choose what amount you want to deposit and go through the Check Out like normal. Be sure to deposit an amount that is similar to what the item(s) you want cost.
You deposit funds by going here.
After that you contact us and tell us what you want us to buy or bid on for you. Be sure to provide as much information as possible so we know exactly what you want, either through e-mail or Live Chat.

2. Once we bought the item or won the auction we will inform you once it arrives at our warehouse. Photo(s) will also be sent to you so you can check if it is the correct item (we do not open packages so if it is packaged in a carton box we will not be able to open it).

3. We will send you the total cost for your items together with the shipping price. If you have already deposited enough money then we will automatically go ahead to the shipping stage. If there is not enough deposited money then we will tell you and notify you how much is missing so you can deposit what is left.
Any money that is left after the purchase will be refunded back to you.

4. Your package is shipped with tracking.

Q & A

Q1: Can I cancel a bid on Yahoo Auction Japan?
A1: You cannot cancel a bid. If the bid is made and you win the auction you have to pay for it, all bids are final.

Q2: How much does it cost in fees if I win an auction or buy an item?
A2: Here is an example:
You win an auction that ended at 8,900yen and the shipping to us is 320yen (no domestic bank fee).
Total cost: 8,900yen (auction price) + 320yen (shipping from the seller to our warehouse) + 300yen (our fee, around 3US$).
Total (without shipping to you) = 9520yen.
Shipping price to you depends on what shipping type you choose. Airmail (1-2 weeks) and SAL (1-3 weeks) are slow but cheaper options compare to EMS (3-5 days).
