    YuRiPa (23 days ago) #36543377The chance whether or not your package is caught by customs seems to vary per country, so that depends on where you are from.
    Why they changed SAL small packet to Air small packet I dunno, you have to ask them. Might be that SAL shipping is not available for your country or maybe your country is affected by the SAL problems that seem to occur for packages that travel through Amsterdam and Paris? In the latter case, you cannot use SAL shipping until the problems are solved, but since that might take a while (if ever) many shops just choose to disable SAL shipping.
    Yes, Air small packet will be more expensive than SAL small packet (I assume, never used SAL small packet) and it will most likely be a lot faster.
    Thank you.

    Now I am confused. I ordered with SAL/Air ONLY, and they shipped it that way. But now all of a sudden I got the SMS that it's delivered by DHL?

    tharglet (23 days ago) #36545927If you have more than one order you'd like them to consolidate into one box/envelope or the shop sent the item(s) in an overly large package, they can repackage stuff for the repackaging fee. If you buy a forwarding only ticket, and it turns out the shop went way overboard with the packaging, you can get them to upgrade it to a repackaging ticket (looking at you, Suruga-ya). Or they may do this automatically when faced with a large box that's not very full... as the extra ¥1000 can work out cheaper if it goes from being parcel-sized to small packet-sized.
    BiJ will undervalue if you ask. Just attach a note to the ticket with the value you'd like on your package. This does limit your insurance on the packet to the declared value and is, well, illegal, but it's your choice. Some countries don't really care, others like inviting people to customs offices.
    I am gonna try it with Amazon JP. They don't have many Doujinshi but a great selection of Manga & Magazines! Then I will need BIJ's help.

    anyone knows/familiar at what time Mandarake updates stock on their online store?

    I have observed that the first update occurs at 12 PM Tokyo Japan time GMT+9.
    I don't know for sure, but the updates on stock of items is irregular.

    Perhaps you could send an email to them as ask, international@mandarake.co.jp
