Yeah, the fees can be quite hefty if you are ordering lower priced and somewhat common items.

is there an program that can automatically place bids on yahoo japan?

my proxy keeps on bidding to early, I'll like to bid closer to the auction end, than 2~4 hours early and then have someone outbid while I'm sleeping.

That sounds awesome, if it exists.

Like eBay, these direct bidding proxies at least allow you to place your bids at the last moment, hence giving you total control over when you bid.

Yahoo japan auctions blocks adult content (figures in my case) right? you must have account there to be able to login, or something else could be done about that?

You could browse using proxies.
I used to use Noppin as it allowed you to browse and manually bid on the items.
I did stop using them cost became too high but something that can be said for all proxies.

What is the fee that is paid to Crescent/Noppin for their proxy service? Is it a lot?

FJ is 200yen/item + 5% 'system fee' over whole order
(200yen/item capped at 800yen if buying from the same store/seller)

Oh thanks, that doesn't seem too expensive.
And I can order from Sugurya from them as well
They really answer their emails fast and their English is quite good, so now if they accept prepaid Visa cards I'm set and I can probably replace Manda..
I emailed them about them and I'm waiting for their reply.

Their hours seem to be until 7pm Japan time now, after that you have to wait until the next working day, so about 9-10 hours to go before they start replying again :p

While browsing I noticed some auctions have a small red/orange exclamation mark beside them (ie. in the same place/size as the free shipping symbol). When I put the cursor over it, the word 'attention' in Japanese appears. Does anyone know what this means in terms of the auction?
