It’s not the import charges, it’s the handling fee I have issue with.

If one of them allowed you to pay the import charges up front, that would be the perfect set imo.
You can get around this if you select Fedex shipping.

Fedex will waive the £12 handling fee if you use this template:

Well, from now on you can add the vat when you take 1:1 yahoo sales prices as a basis for price evaluation for games in the EU. Good for everyone that pays their actual vat.

I just got an email from buyee stating they changed their fee from 5% of the item price to 300 yen per order. FJ must have been killing them.

According to their website this week, FromJapan is now charging 15% tax on all shipments to New Zealand. What's worse, though, is that along with this change, if you live in NZ and order items through FJ they no longer allow you to adjust the value on the customs form.

No idea if this is bad luck on my part, or if Fedex have finally realized they're receiving thousands of variants of the same template, but Fedex have just refused to waive the £12 for me today.

I'm particularly irritated, as they also gouged me to high heaven on the VAT too :mad: Somehow, they charged over 30% of the full (shipped) price - even though the total was marked down 25% by FromJapan. This seems to be a bit of a running pattern with Fedex (at least in my experience). When I have been charged by Parcel Force - the VAT does at least always seem to come to 20% (using a semi-sane conversion rate).

Moral of the story: rancor and EMS for life!

They did this to me too (order was from China). They kept sending me warning letters about not paying the bill. I told them that I'd be happy to pay the bill, but 20% of £30 total is not £25. Took a month, but they finally calculated it correctly.

I haven't paid yet, so maybe that should be my next play ;) Probably have nothing to lose, at this stage...well, except perhaps Fedex jail :lol:

I am using zenmarket for a while now, great service and such, only 300yen per order (oh and on multiple items even from same seller btw),
BUT, they charge you not only the 3,5% payment fees they claim ie. when you deposit 100.000 yen (844 €), rather they charge you 908,50€ in total!!

This means not only 3,5% (29,50€) as they claim but 35€ on top of that!! Shady AF !!!

I wouldn't sign up to any that require a deposit after those thieving **** at SMJ stole my deposit under the guise of an inactive account.
