  • Shipping rates from Japan

    I know, super dull topic. But as Ive noticed Japanese sellers' prices for 90ies (Indie) Hip-Hop seem to be quite attractive, Im considering ordering 3-4 2LPs from one seller who offers besides the commonly seen EMS a postage service called international E-Packet, which can be chosen for packages weighing up to 2kg.

    He quotes the following

    SHIPPING COST

    USA, CANADA
    INTERNATIONAL e-PACKET(~2kg)...$11~
    EMS..................................$13~

    Europe , Russia , etc.
    INTERNATIONAL e-PACKET(~2kg)......$11~
    EMS.....................................$16~

    ASIA
    INTERNATIONAL e-PACKET(~2kg)......$9~
    EMS....................................$10~

    COMBINE SHIPPING :
    Add 1CD or 7inch : $3.00 for each additional.
    Add 1LP $5.00
    Add 2LP or gatefold cover LP ... $10
    If You Live in Other Country, please ask me before bidding.
    I tell you correct shipping cost.

    This might be wishful thinking, but at first glance one could understand it as being 11 USD for a package of records up to 2kg with e-Packet (which will be a close call if I go for 4 2LPs, i know). I havent purchased anything from Japan yet, so I have no real feeling for what is reasonable to expect, but my more rationally powered self says Ill have to add 10 USD per 2LP to that making the whole deal unattractive.. I wrote to him 4 days ago, but he hasnt responded, mixed with a 99% rating this might make me reconsider in general.

    Anyway, I thought Id ask the board, as I believe there are some of you living in Japan who may be able to give some advice on the cheapest way of delivery to Europe (Germany) for potential future sales endeavours.

        Yes I like that record
        -
        You thought the leaden winter would bring you down forever,
        but you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

          I used to buy a lot from Japan, I have used:
          Airmail (Regular) - takes 5 or 7 working days,
          SAL (Economy Airmail) - takes 10 or 15 working days,
          EMS (Express Airmail) - 3 or 5 working days.

          unregistered Airmail - 1000 yen ( 8.89 euros) , registered Airmail - 1410 yen (12.50 euros) , unregistered SAL - 610 yen (5.40 euros), registered SAL - 1020 yen (9 euros), EMS - 2100 yen (18 euros)

          I always like to have my package tracked so I usually ask for it. If you're patient then registered SAL is a good option, In the past Airmail has been just as fast as EMS too. But customs can sometimes get suspect about EMS packages because they're usually for expensive consignments so if you ask the seller to mark down the value they will generally post it airmail or sal. Any questions just PM me.
