Do we have to add funds before you will check if the item is available?

@Chaconne You don't have to add funds until we after confirm the price and availability, and of course only if it is something you want to purchase.

Is there a better way to calculate what you might owe after purchase, shipping to Zenmarket, then shipping to you? I like using the service but I always end up having to do 3-4 deposits (getting hit with paypal fee each time) to get the amount right.

I would just deposit more than you would need and then get a refund later. The paypal fee is a percentage so multiple deposits doesn't really change anything, unless you care about the 40y fee which is like, 30 cents.

But I generally do: 1k yen for domestic shipping/item, about 3yen/gram for international shipping. This is an estimate, and at higher weight packages it comes out to be about 2yen/gram. In general, for boots/shoes and packages that weigh about as much, I deposit about 5k yen for EMS. This generally covers my fees and then I just request a refund later.

At lower levels of deposits it's cheaper to pay directly with credit card. If using Paypal, don't use Paypal's native exchange rates, but rather there's an option in Paypal to use your credit card's exchange rate, which will usually save you a couple dollars. I use Chase and the exchange rate is always better for me if I use Chase's than Paypals.

Hello! Sorry we haven't been so active on this forum lately, but it's nice to see you guys helping each other out. Hopefully you haven't noticed too much, but we've been pretty busy here in Japan. We want to start posting some new fashion brand profiles again soon though.

 

@Coldsnap I'm glad g transistor cleared things up. Like he said, if you estimate a bit over, any money left in your account will get credited back to you and that includes the payment fee (except the 40 yen). It's not as convenient as depositing the exact right amount from the beginning, but might be better than making multiple deposits.

 

Thanks!

I appreciate some of the little changes to the site like automatically converting yen to USD when I'm putting in how much money to put in. It saves me the time of opening up an extra google tab to do conversions there.
