Question on shipping to Japan, any concerns I should be worried about? An eBay'r registered as a US address bidder asked me if I can ship some boots to Japan. I emailed him back verifying that he has a Japan registered paypal mailing address as well as his US. But while I'm waiting for a response, is there anything I should be concerned about when shipping to Japan with customs? I still need to figure out shipping cost, any recommendations as to how I should ship? USPS Priority Mail work fine?
Probably not an issue, and I have no idea how you would be able to ask this politely, but can he speak Japanese?
I live in Korea, and generally the stuff I order is under $250 so it fits into Korea's customs exception, but on the odd occasion when I do deal with them, it can be a hassle as my Korean is far from being up to par (and I usually have somebody else talk to them if I can't get an English speaker). Minus the hassle on my end, I've never had a problem the 3-4 times I've had to deal with them. Never given anybody of purchased from any problem.
Regardless, I like to think us Americans in Asia (as well as Asians in Asia) make fantastic customers (and given that many sellers don't ship to Asia, easy to build loyalty with).
