You're looking at a Group Order thread! These work a bit differently from box splits, so take note!

Since this is special order you can change your mind as much as you want before the deadline ^^

Prices are listed before s/h (both ways) and any foreign transaction fees. Please take note of the planned shipping method. S/H from me to buyer varies. You can check this post for an idea of costs.

Amazon JP is one of the largest online stores that caters to the country (if not the largest). Similar to other Amazon sites, they have tons and tons of stuff, including things that have been long sold out in the usual stores and even a few exclusives. Check around the shop and see if you find anything!

Amazon JP has an English-language browsing option, but it's somewhat limited. Therefore, it's recommended to browse the website using Google translator or if you have Google Chrome, it translates automatically without any plugins! ^^

This first post contains "regular" order info; for the proxy order, refer to the second post.

Regular Amazon JP Order Info
There are no proxy fees required in this group order, as I'm ordering with my own account! Since Amazon uses flat rates for shipping, those fees will simply be divided among everyone based on what they purchase. You can get an idea of shipping & handling charges here.

This order is for CDs, DVDs/Blu-rays, Books, Magazines/Mooks, and Calendars sold by Amazon.co.jp ONLY. For anything else, please see the second post below for the Proxy Order!

Amazon JP Proxy Order Info

If you want to order something from Amazon JP that they can't ship overseas, you've come to the right place! With this proxy order, we can buy nearly anything from the site, including hard-to-find books, videos, and CDs from third-party sellers!

The proxy I am using is dv8CAG, which specializes in Amazon JP forwarding. You can get an idea of their fees here. Note that although Amazon JP offers free domestic shipping, most Marketplace sellers don't; you will be responsible any domestic shipping fees for your items.

Due to United States laws and such, hentai products are not allowed in group orders!

Also, please read descriptions for third-party sales carefully! Note that "new" is 新品 and "used" is 中古品 .

Additional Information

Navigating Amazon JP in English

As noted above, besides Google translation, Amazon has some English-language browsing options. Information such as stock status, Amazon Points earned, most product details, and section headlines will show up in English when using said options; titles, product descriptions, and user reviews will remain in Japanese.

To view the site in English, click the link circled here:
View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://www.blueshinra.com/temp/tsukiboard/amazon1.jpg

This should store a cookie on your browser. Afterwards, you should see some information in English:
View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://www.blueshinra.com/temp/tsukiboard/amazon2.jpg

If this doesn't work for whatever reason, there should be a "Click here to see in English" option for each listing, as seen here:
View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://www.blueshinra.com/temp/tsukiboard/amazon3.jpg

For regular orders: Amazon JP will only post the lowest new price on an item's main page. In cases where Amazon's isn't the lowest, check the "# new" link under "More Buying Choices" at the right and look for a listing from Amazon.co.jp. If one is there, that item can be ordered:
View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://www.blueshinra.com/temp/tsukiboard/amazon4.jpg

Shipping and Handling, Part One - Shipping from Amazon JP to Me (regular orders only)

REGULAR ORDERS: Amazon.co.jp charges a flat rate and only ships via DHL overseas. For books and videos sent to North America, this is 2,700 yen per shipment, and 300 yen per item (the flat rate is less for CDs, but any combo of items is given the higher rate). This seems expensive at first glance, but keep in mind that unlike with SAL and EMS, weight is not an issue, which is why Amazon JP is a great option for ordering several heavy artbooks, magazines, and box sets at one time!

For these group orders, there's generally been a minimum of 10 items, which means 570 yen per item for shipping. If more items get ordered, that rate goes even lower.

PROXY ORDERS: Shipping will be via EMS and divided by weight, much like any other split here. Proxy fees will be divided based on the items' prices. Many items on Amazon.co.jp have free domestic shipping, but for those that don't, you're responsible for covering those expensives for your part of the order.

Shipping and Handling, Part Two - Shipping from Me to You

Media items (books, magazines, videos, and music) destined for United States addresses will be sent via Media Mail, which is the cheapest option for such items. As an example, a five-pound package sent this way would be $4.05. Other shipping options (Parcel Post, Priority Mail, etc.) are available by request, but keep in mind that for books and magazines, it will be much more expensive than Media Mail. Note that because of postal restrictions, orders containing non-media items can NOT be sent via Media Mail.

Anything shipped outside of the US will be sent via the least expensive method available (typically flat-rate Priority Mail Int'l). Keep in mind that manga magazines are THICK, and only one can fit in a flat-rate envelope!

If you want to use a different shipping method; get tracking, insurance, or other services; and/or have a specific customs-related request, just ask!

Insurance is highly recommended for expensive orders! I'm sorry, but I can't be held responsible for lost packages.

Odds and Ends

- Payments for regular orders will be made in USD, and invoiced accordingly. If the rate ends up being higher or lower, the difference will be adjusted on your shipping invoice.

- Payments for proxy orders will be made in JPY using the current club rate. Again, if the rate ends up being higher or lower, the difference will be adjusted on your shipping invoice.

- Amazon JP's product listings typically include 5% sales tax. Regular orders will not have to pay this tax, but items ordered via proxy are of course subject to it.

- About Amazon Points: If you are familiar with CDJapan's point system, Amazon's is similar to that: certain things you buy at the site earns you points which can be redeemed toward future purchases. As decided via poll in an earlier Amazon JP thread, our points will be applied toward shipping costs (divided per-item).

- Preorders that aren't out by the deadline are discouraged: For in-stock and restock items, Amazon allows payment in either USD or JPY. For preorders, the only option is JPY, which (unlike with USD) means foreign transaction fees for the entire order. Thus, unless you're worried about something selling out right away (which tends to happen rarely), please try to avoid far-in-advance preorder items whenever possible.

- Reminders about the deadline will be posted a week in advance.

Sorry if I'm missing this somewhere but would it be cheaper to go through this group order than to just order the CD I want?

If you have to get the CD from Amazon JP for whatever reason, it's likely to be cheaper via group order. Here are their overseas shipping rates; as you can see, shipping and handling to North America for one CD would be 2,000 yen. Hope this helps :)

Since there are only two left from this seller, if they sell out before the deadline can you please buy it from the other seller? Sorry about that.

The CD is only available on a few obscure sites and Amazon.jp but since just ordering it will be about $50 (shipping included) I guess this would be a better route of obtaining it.

I might change my mind on the book though depending on my funds after AX. Is it okay to remove it from my form if it's before late July?

What do you mean by this? Shipping information is in the third post. On the other hand, are you worried about how much it'll end up being?

I wasn't sure if I had to put it down or not. That's just for Poxy orders right?

I'm not particularly worried about the total. Most places want around $60+ for the thing and I'm sure this will be cheaper.

Yep, just proxy. In those cases, the shipping should be listed (and if the seller is Amazon, it's usually free).

If Amazon's shipping weight is accurate, it would cost about US $19.45 to ship from me to you. EMS shipping from Japan would be another expense, and I can't calculate that without knowing what everyone else's stuff would weigh.
