Notice: Temporary hiatus

Hi everyone. I’m starting to get a backlog of orders that need to be shipped out so I’m going to have to put a stop on orders for one or two weeks while I get everything sorted out and ready for shipment. If you placed an order already and haven’t heard from me since sending payment, I probably have your stuff but have been too busy to organize things. Sorry! I will get things ready during my break.

This post will be updated when I’m ready to take orders again. Hope everyone has an awesome new year!

Registered SAL & PayPal fees

Hi everyone. I’m sure many of you have heard already but starting next year, Registered SAL shipping will become unavailable for the following countries: Australia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greenland, Hungary, Norway, and Poland. Sorry, I know it sucks. =(

For those of you who live in those countries and want tracking, you’ll have to use either EMS or Registered Air. As usual, I will require people who send their PayPal payment as Goods/Services to choose a tracked/insured shipping method, so only EMS and Registered Air will be available to countries without Registered SAL.

Changing subjects, I have revised my PayPal fees. For smaller amounts, 5% did not cover the fees I incurred when people sent their payment as Goods/Services. To adjust for this, the following fee structure will now be applied for PayPal payments sent as Goods/Services:

  • 1000 yen and under – 10% of total
  • 1001 yen – 3000 yen – 8% of total
  • 3001 yen and over – 5% of total

Sorry for having to do this. Personal payments will not be charged any fees, as usual.

Lastly, I’d like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday season. Have a great 2014!
