From Japan are about the best of the rest, and I used to switch between both.
QFT.

ZenMarket look alright though, their web site is pretty usable.

Cheers, lads. Guess I'll give From Japan a go.

Got a response back from SMJ - they are indeed shutting down. They're refunding my deposit at the end of the week. :(

I assume they’re refunding all deposits as a matter of course then.

Taking that back, the infinite scroll rather than pagination is a ridiculous idea.

consequences of the anti money laundering act ? Transparency and declaration madness don`t go along very well.

I'd say more likely increased competition in the market.

What was that other proxy that modified the declaration option? The world gets smaller every day.

FromJapan - this is limited to reducing the value by 25% of the original value now.

That's sad news about SMJ closing, they've been perfect over the years. I had a hotel in Japan once that was just down the street so stuck my head around the door. :awe:

What was the SMJ deposit for?, I just had the spending limit set at a decent amount when I opened the account a long time ago. Probably they pre-authorised a credit card.

The other site I have been using for the search/browsing facility is Jauce, but I've yet to sign up.

Deposits were to allow bidding up to a specific amount in JPY. The deposits worked as a multiplier, so for every 1 JPY deposited, you got N increase in bidding power. I forget the exact amounts.

Hi all,

maybe a long shot but is there anyone on here who has an account on a proxy service that would buy something for me on YAJ?

if so please let me know its only a Taito Type x2 size item.

Cheers,
John

Did anyone get their deposits back from SMJ? They’ve ignored all of my emails.
