Japonica Market Shopping Service Review

For my birthday, I bought myself a the Marie Antoinette JSK in black from Yahoo!jp Auctions using Japonica Market. The process went easily and I highly recommend them!

I filled out their order form and emailed it to them and immediately received a confirmation email from them to verify they received my order on August 8th. Later that day, I received another email from them to confirm my order with them and to inform me they sent me an invoice for a deposit plus the Paypal fees. I paid the invoice and they immediately put in a snipe bid for me. I've been nervous about auction snipers ever since I had one not bid for me on Ebay once, so I asked them to at least bid my minimum on the auction. I also decided to up my bid just in case. They did both these things quickly without asking any questions.

They emailed me very shortly after the auction was over on August 10th to let me know I was the winning bidder and that they would invoice me for the rest of my balance as soon as my JSK arrived at their offices. They then again emailed me on the 14th to let me know that my item had arrived at their offices. They invoiced me for their fees and the shipping costs. On 8-15-10, I received yet another email to let me know that they shipped my item.

I received the dress on 8-18 as described in the auction. I was kind of too excited to take a picture of the packaging, but it was very well packaged. Whether the inner packaging was done by the shopping service or the Yahoo!Jp seller, I'm not sure, but I was definitely happy with how it was packaged. It was put in a plastic bag inside a plastic shopping bag with around the outside some bubble wrapping inside large water proof envelope that was taped formidably. That's a lot of protection! I was also happy with how quickly it got here, which was expected because I paid for EMS shipping.

I was very happy with this service and will definitely use them again. They were communicative on every step and very easy to work with. The fee for auction sites is 10% which is a bit cheaper than most of the other shopping services I looked into. I highly recommend them! It was nice to pay less and get amazing service for once!

And now, on to the pictures of the dress!

The dress from the front. The bows can be a pain because they keep coming untied.
