As some of you know… I usually ordered my stuff via FromJapan, a full proxy. But buying lots of things also means to pay lots of handling fees and someday I was thought: “Hey, why not try out a forwarding proxy and order directly from the webshops? It might save me lots of money in future.” I have a credit card, had Hinano’s shopping guide and was curious, so I tried ordering directly from SkitDolce, Rejet’s online shop.
To my dismay… SkitDolce didn’t liked the security system I have for my credit card, so I couldn’t use my credit card with them… I tried to adjust things with my bank, but they said that SkitDolce is not triggering the payment with my credit card, so I can’t enter my security password for the payment. I could have directly contacted SkitDolce, but that was a too big hurdle for me, so I just let it be. I guess I still need to use a full proxy sometimes, if SkitDolce has nice extras (tokutens)… ;w;
My second attempt to order directly was at StellaWorth and lo and behold, it worked!!! They accepted my credit card, though I had to write my name in Katakana! But still… It WORKED!!! ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆ My proxy in favor was Big in Japan because I had only one package from StellaWorth and the handling fee was 500 Yen for as many articles I wanted, instead of having kg prices or article prices. The EMS shipping was 1800 Yen and pretty cheap for 9 CD’s. I didn’t even think it would have been this cheap. LOLOL Big in Japan also offers SAL if you don’t want EMS shipping. I advice you to check the postage charges before picking EMS or SAL, because the prices for the postage are revealed when your package arrives at Big in Japan.
I actually want to try out ordering at the Animate onlineshop as well, because they grant us with lots of points… I’m kind of sad that StellaWorth doesn’t give points on orders in the onlineshop… The real shop does have points though… Maybe they’ll change it someday…
If anyone has questions about ordering directly at StellaWorth… Feel free to ask me. I’m trying to help you as much as I can! (^w^)/
Needless to say… I bought a bunch of CD’s from StellaWorth.
- Pia Prince Carrot Approach CD (Morikawa Toshiyuki, Shimono Hiro, Shimazaki Nobunaga, Yasumoto Hiroki, Inoue Go, Irie Reona) I only bought this CD because the voice samples were really funny and the CD is only 980 Yen. 980 YEN for almost 1 hour tracklist!!! 8D
- Kare to Issho ni Ofuton de ichaicha gorogoro suru -Evening- (Hirakawa Daisuke)
- Kareshi Igai Type D: X -Indiscretion with his younger brother- (Tachibana Shinnosuke)
- Shinsengumi Kekkonroku Wasurenagusa 4: Hijikata (Hosoya Yoshimasa)
- Higashiura-Ke no Kyuujitsu 3 -Mirai no Kazoku- (Ono Yuuki as your BF and Kimura Ryouhei as your older future brother-in-law)
- NadeNade 3 (Maeno Tomoaki) with Tokuten
- TsukiUta February (Masuda Toshiki) and September (Kondou Takashi)
- and lots of bromides. xDD
- Akogare no Meganeya-san (Maeno Tomoaki and Yonaga Tsubasa)
- Kutsuya Glicine (Maeno Tomoaki) There was a signature raffle, when I bought it, but sadly I was not a winner… ;w;
Am I the only person who think it’s amusing that Maeno is a salesman in both CD’s? A shoe shop clerk and a glasses shop clerk. LOL The freetalk from Akogare no Meganeya-san is hilarious. Maeno and Yonaga Tsubasa are incredible dorks. xDDD
I have been ordering quite a lot, but now my wish list is dying down… Luckily. And I will try to combine as many releases as I can so I will only get one package per month. wwww
