Is the shipping quote from BiJ accurate? I was thinking of ordering Houmei from them and it estimated 2800 yen EMS. However, no one knows how much shipping will cost yet. Since they use EMS and SAL just like everyone else, I doubt that it would actually be cheaper. Can anyone who bought something from BiJ comment on their shipping estimates?

They opened proxy service [ext link ]

It seems you need to make a down payment (50% of your maximum invest amount), and their commission fee is 500 yen up to 20,000 yen.


I might give it a try soon n__n

Got one package from them and another one on its way, very good service so far. Their greatest apeal is that with exclusives they only ask for payment when the item is in stock. This gives me some months to prepare myself for Tamashii web exclusive that pop out of nowhere instead of paying 3-4 months earlier.

Bandai screwed up with one of the pieces and they contacted me to offer a new piece even when I didn't even complained about it (didn't notice this flaw at all). They got points for that.

They probably haven't answered their emails because of the situation in Japan right now.

I used the email in their FAQ, contact@biginjap.com, sent it last Saturday. I'm used to online stores answering within a day or two.

Hey everyone!

I want to ask for a bit of clarification on something.
I picked to pay later for some pre-orders but they say I have to pay by PayPal from a credit card or so when said pre-order is released. (Correct me if I'm wrong but their explanation was rather confusing.)

Now I'm wondering, do they just want me to send money from my PayPal account? I don't have a credit card but I do have something else linked so I can send money over.

tl;dr version: Do I just send money from my PayPal account to them like AmiAmi and they don't mind how I sent it over to my PayPal account as long as it's the correct currency?

I guess that what they mean. But you can ask them for the best answer.

I contacted BigInJapan about getting a figure for me and told them my highest price etc, but I was wondering would they purchase the most expensive they can find so they get more of a percentage of the final order? Or would they purchase the cheapest one? Or just the first one they found in the price range? I've never used a proxy before and thought I would ask and see what people's thoughts are.

-does anyone know how can BiJ estimate the shipping cost on preorders, while no other shops do it?

i'm just wondering if they put it higher(on preorders) and then they adeguate it to the correct cost, or just leave it higher.

-is the shipping cost cheap or expensive according to you(who have already ordered from them)

Their cheaper than AmiAmi. Well EMS at least. I've not received enough items from them to see them reduce shipping cost yet. I had shipping on one item (1/4 Tamaki) increased whilst others remained exactly as quoted.
