This guide is copied and pasted from my Tumblr account.



Personally use the bidding/shopping service Buyee.jp (owned and run by Tenso.com) for the YJA. The great thing about Buyee is that, you can do the bidding on your own, which is awesome if you have a set limit of budget or the auction for item you want is about to end and you don’t want to waste the time contacting a shopping service. You can view the website in Japanese, English or Chinese.

Before entering any auctions, you have to open an account on Buyee (you don’t have to open a YJA account). Once you’re registered with Buyee, you can start bidding on any items on YJA except items that are prohibited by Buyee or from buyers with very low ratings. You can look for the items you want to bid on directly from the YJA website (just go to the item’s individual page and then click on the blue banner on the top left that says something like, ‘Overseas customers click here to bid this item’) or, you can search for the item using Buyee search engine.

There are fees for using this service, so it is very important to read the Usage Guide on the Buyee website. For each winning bid, there is a 200yen payment transfer fee. This amount is fixed. Another one is the service fee. If your item costs less than 5000yen, the fee is 500yen. If it is more than 5000yen, the service fee will be 10% of the item price. So basically, if you won a bid for a 3000yen dress, the amount you have to pay would be 3000yen + 200yen transfer fee + 500yen service fee. Another awesome thing about Buyee is that, you will get email notifications every time someone else outbids you, which removes the need to check the page every minute. :) You will also be notified if you win the auction.
If you didn’t win, you won’t be charged anything.
Buyee accept either credit cards or Paypal for bidding and shipping.

Once the item has been sent to Buyee warehouse, you will be notified of its arrival. Buyee takes at least one day to process the item and ship it to you after you pay for shipping. For example, if your item arrives on Monday and you make the payment for it to be shipped to you on the same day, Buyee will process your request and ship the item on the following day (Tuesday).

If you bought more than 1 item, you will have the option to consolidate your items as well as the option to add protective packaging. Each service costs at least 500yen, I think. For three or more items, consolidating fee is 1000yen. Also, Buyee will take one extra day to consolidate the items, so if you pay for shipping and consolidating and/or extra packaging service on Monday, consolidating will be done on Tuesday, and shipping will be pushed to Wednesday.

The shipping fee consists of domestic shipping (from seller to Buyee warehouse) + international shipping (from Buyee to you). For the domestic shipping, the seller will usually list on the item’s page how much the shipping will cost. Check Buyee fee guide for international shipping.

Basically there are two sets of payments you need to be aware of:
1st payment: Item price + 200yen transfer fee + 500yen / 10% of item price service fee (whichever applies)
2nd payment: Domestic shipping + International shipping (optional: consolidating fee, protective packaging fee)

I think that’s all I can cover. Full details on bidding and fees can be found on the Buyee website. They’re all easy to understand, I promise.

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 27. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

Among the interwebs community, I am generally known as Kitty. I hold a bachelor degree in Social Science Education, majoring in History and currently I am pursuing a Masters degree in South East Asian Studies. I enjoy talking to my online friends. You could say I have more friends in the cyberworld than in real life. Because it is easier for me to talk to people without looking at them in the face; I'm a shy person and I'm very self-conscious on how I look. I don't know what people think about me so I'd leave that to you to figure out yourself.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
