Bidding on Yahoo Auction JP without proxy?

Hi! A while ago I heard some talk about a service that let you bid on YAJP without using a proxy service (but having the item delivered to someone in Japan, that will then charge you some %'s). This would be great, since the actual bidding normally starts the last minute before the auction ends, and it is impossible making a late bid by paypal and proxy. Also, the time difference, the proxy people can help me when I'm asleep only. Any info?

Ok, thanks a lot! Maybe what I had heard about, but easiest would be to be able to do everything by myself.. Just lost an auction and frustrated

I'm with Unc., get a proxy or one those companies to do it. I've used Hide-San is the past.

I thought you could be able to bid yourself, just like ebay, somehow, but this sounds good too. I will try it out. The point with a net auction is to bid late, the proxy service bid for me as soon as I send them the money, which has to be enough time before it ends for them to receive and bid. If you can't spend unlimited of money you will always try to get a good deal. But that's life and shopping from Japan I suppose.

Unc, do you use them to stockpile your purchases and send them in bulk?
