10 months ago - ReinierI was tempted to use BiJ's proxy and forwarding services because of the low price of ¥1,000 per repackaging ticket that allows you to order multiple orders and have them all repackaged together into one shipment. Most of the time when I used their proxy and forwarding services I ordered books from Amazon.co.jp and I would receive 1-5 books per shipment that would arrive with a torn obi (the little paper book cover on the bottom of the cover) and I didnt pay much attention to it and kept using their services until one shipment where everything arrived damaged due to improper packaging.
- 10%Doesn't respond.
1 year ago - GreatMightySympSent messages from two different email addresses over the span of three weeks, no response back from either address.
Not from their list of blacklisted email domains either, so not sure what the issue was.
- 73%No problems but wouldn't use again
1 year ago (Updated 1 year ago) - letheralI used their proxy service and had no problems. I wish they had a form that could be filled out when sending requests to make the process easier. I also have a feeling that if there were any problems I would've had a hard time with them. They worked this time but I don't think I'll risk it again honestly, there are better proxies out there.
- 0%Customer Service doesn't exist
1 year ago - bitterseasThey sent my 2nd paypal bill to the wrong email address. There was no attempt to notify me via my actual email address. (I had specified that the two were different.) I was unable to check my paypal account for a few days and when I got around to it, it was too late. The bill was still there so I asked about the situation in emails THREE times but I have yet to get any type of response. They're quick to send you bills but can't be bothered to help when you have questions. No customer service means no more orders from me. What a waste of money.
- 40%Customer Service is poor!
2 years ago (Updated 2 years ago) - Pure-LiliumI've used their forwarding service about 7 times now, and only recently had a bit of an issue. So I requested that they send my order via Reg SAL and they said that they couldn't change it because the forwarding ticket had EMS selected and the invoice was on it's way. Okay fair enough. But now I find out that I've been charged for EMS but the parcel was sent Reg SAL. Not happy. Will open a dispute with paypal.
- 10%Really questionable.
3 years ago (Updated 2 years ago) - ElixirI emailed BIJ's proxy address June '13 with an inquiry. They immediately sent a PayPal invoice, to which I replied saying I was only making an inquiry - not an order. They blocked my email. Sept '13, emailed them with another inquiry. No reply. I then emailed them in Oct '13, questioning the lack of response. No reply.
Be mindful with paying stores (Amazon.jp, etc) and shipping to BIJ - if BIJ decide to keep your arrival, which has happened, you're screwed since Paypal explicitly doesn't dispute nor compensate against forwarding services.

4 years ago (Updated 4 years ago) - EpicTristanUsed Three Times Now, Very good for buying from Amazon Japan, Very Well packed (When Paying For The Repacking), Had one order arrive there on the morning, Sent me a payment notification, and was dispatched on the same day, A Really Good Company.
- 98%adequate Amazon.jp connection
4 years ago - 4catdoormanGreat help accessing "bargains" listed in Amazon.jp that I wouldn't be allowed to purchase any other way as a non-resident. Although $5 ticket for opportunity to use proxy is nominal be prepared to be somewhat surprised if their add-on acquisition percentage per item purchased isn't reviewed beforehand or taken into account. BIJ does provide a breakdown and adequate explanation of how their price add-on is determined.
Instructions for proxy use are excellent though I'm sure as a first timer I probably took longer than normal figuring the right procedure for forwarding. BIJ wasted little ti
