I am taking orders for doujins that are in-stock from now until Mar 16 Mar 20, and the deadline for payment would be Mar 23. Haru Comic City 18 falls on Mar 17, so I'm willing to take orders if the doujins are listed on Toranoana. If there is sufficient interest, I may split our orders into two, one for the doujins that are in-stock and the second order for the doujins that are released for the event. As usual, 18+ doujins are okay as long as it is not too explicit (especially on the cover) - please ask if you're unsure~

To contact me, you could either leave a comment here or send me a PM. You'll need to give me the item's title, the link to the item's page, your location as well as your PayPal address. My feedback page can be found over here.

Payment
There will be two rounds of payment for this group order. I only accept PayPal. For both payments, buyers are responsible for the PayPal fees and this will be added to the respective total. Local buyers may request to do bank transfers as an alternative method (though it is not encouraged due to fluctuating exchange rates).

- Payment 1 (Required before the deadline - Saturday, Mar 23 at 11.59AM GMT+8) - Payment in JPY
1. Price of the item
2. Commission
    - JPY300 for every CD/book (below 100 pages)
    - JPY500 for every book (100+ pages)
    - JPY700 for every book (200+ pages)
    - JPY950 for every book (300+ pages)
Commission cannot be discounted as this would be used to cover domestic shipping and deputy fees. An extra JPY650 will be charged in addition to the commission for a rush-order.
3. PayPal fee (3.9% + JPY50)

- Payment 2 (Will be requested after receiving and packing the items) - Payment in USD
1. Shipping cost from Japan to me
I will get EMS shipping if there are sufficient orders; otherwise I will get SAL (Registered) which usually take around a week to reach me. The shipping cost will be divided by the number of items and then allocated to the number of items per buyer. Buyers of lighter items will pay lesser while buyers of heavier items will pay slightly more.
2. Shipping cost from me to you
All items are shipped from Singapore via regular air mail; however if you require tracking, I can register the parcel which would add an additional USD$2.20 to your shipping costs. I'll pack the items appropriately so that they are well-protected, but if you prefer a different packing method, please let me know beforehand. I will ship the items within 3 days after receiving Payment 2. Depending on your location, I will give you the estimated arrival time that is provided by the post office. After the parcel is sent out, I will not be responsible for any damaged, stolen or lost items during delivery. Also, no returns/refunds will be accepted after the transaction is completed. Local buyers may request for meet-up.
3. PayPal fee (3.9% + USD$0.50)

Important
1. Please be aware that I can only give shipping estimates as I do not know how heavy some of the items are. However, sending heavy books/items to USA would most likely incur heavy shipping costs.
2. When you place your order, please indicate your location so that I can calculate Payment 2 quickly after receiving the items.
3. Try to minimize the changes to your order; as long as Payment 1 has not been made, you may still make changes freely.
4. Orders will only be confirmed when Payment 1 is received; once it is confirmed, there will be no cancellations.
5. Refunds (for both the item price and the commission) will be given only if the item goes out of stock. PayPal fee is not refundable.
6. Please be patient as the items would need some time to reach the deputy before being shipped out to me.
7. Do leave an alternative form of contact (such as email) if you are not able to check LiveJournal often.
8. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions!

Updates
Mar 5 - Because of some low stock items, I will split the orders into batches before getting them all shipped to Singapore. :) First batch of orders have been submitted and paid for~
Mar 10 - Just a quick note, splitting orders into batches can be requested only if, 1) your item is at very, very low stock status, and, 2) I have enough paid orders at hand to place a batch order. Otherwise, if you would like me to order your items immediately, please request for a rush-order instead. :) Also, order deadline has been extended to Mar 20, and payment deadline would be Mar 23.
Mar 14 - Second batch of orders was sent out yesterday. I will do a third batch of orders this weekend for some in-stock and event pre-orders, so please send in your request quickly if you want to join the third round! The fourth and final round would be made on Mar 23 after the final collection of payment is completed. Thanks~
Mar 15 - Just placed the order for the third batch. So the final round will be on Mar 23! :)
Mar 24 - All orders have been placed! Thanks to everyone who sent their payments in promptly! <3 I'll be contacting some of you guys soon if there were OOS items in your order. The next update would be when all the items have reached me yup! :)
Apr 5 - Apologies for the infrequent updates; got a little busy with work. ><;; Either way, I decided that any refunds from OOS items will be used to cover part of Payment 2, so that the transactions wouldn't get too messy. Also, all items have reached the proxy, so I have already requested for the shipping invoice! :)
Apr 13 - Sorry for the late update. The proxy actually missed out on one book when I checked the shipping invoice, so anyway, they placed an order for it and I was waiting for the last item to arrive yup. Final shipping invoice should come to me on Monday, then hopefully the parcel can be shipped out right after that!
Apr 23 - Parcel is already in Singapore according to tracking status, but waiting for it to be delivered to my doorstep. Invoice for Payment 2 should go out to you guys by this weekend! Thank you for waiting patiently~
Apr 24 - Received the parcel! :) Will be sorting out everyone's parcels, get shipping quotes and send invoices out to you guys over the next few days yup!
Apr 28 - PMs and refunds for OOS items have been sent. Once I get your reply with regard to shipping instruction, I'll be PMing invoices for Payment 2, and send the parcel out after that. Thanks to everyone for being really patient with me~ Life's been quite hectic lately so I wasn't able to be as quick as the previous group orders. ><;;

Thank you! :)

Hello! PayPal is the easiest mode of payment for overseas transaction, hence that's why I'd prefer to use it. :) If you have a credit/debit card, all you need to do is to link it up with a PayPal account, then you'll be able to send money yup!

Another option would be local bank transfer as I have a POSB Savings account in Singapore. Do you happen to have an account there, or do you know someone who's able to help you transfer payment via that method?

Hmm, as of now, I can't think of other options that's possible for Singapore. What other payment methods can you use from your side? Let me know and I'll try to see if I'm able to get access to them from here. :)

Hello! Thanks for your message. I can accept payment via local bank transfer as I have a POSB Savings account. Is that okay for you? However, exchange rates will depend on PayPal rate, so please take note of that.

Also, I can do meet-up if you want to save postage costs at Payment 2~

If you're fine with this arrangement, do let me know so that I can send you the invoice for Payment 1. :)

ah i just have a question!! is there any limit to how much we could buy? ;;
ilovemiki
Mar. 7th, 2013 04:26 pm (UTC)
Hello! At the moment, there's no "limit" to how much you can order as long as you can pay for it. However, if you're not from Singapore, I wouldn't recommend that you order too many heavy doujins (those with 200 pages and above) as international postage can cost quite a bit. Then again, if time is not an issue, you can always opt for sea shipment, which cost significantly cheaper but takes longer yup!

Hopefully this answers your question. :)

thanks! i have a few more though haha ;-; how long does it usually take for sea shipment? also where can i check how many pages it is? sorry i am so inadequate with this site sobs...
ilovemiki
Mar. 7th, 2013 04:40 pm (UTC)
It takes about 1 month for sea shipment. I would highly recommend to add tracking number so that you can be reassured about its shipping status. So far, the few people who have opted for that option have always gotten their parcel - it's just that they will have to wait longer compared to the others. :)

As for the number of pages and size of the doujins, you can look under: サイズ. Usually it'll say something like "B5 42p" so that means that the doujin is B5 size with 42 pages yup~

No worries, let me know if you have any other questions!

Hello! Thanks for your message. :)

Hmm, looking at the number of orders I have gotten so far, I think it would be safe to extend the deadline a little more. So, I think that it'll be good if you could place your order by Mar 20, and make the payment by Mar 23. This would also give Toranoana enough time to re-stock after Haru Comic City as well~ Does that sound okay to you?

No problem~ I doubt I'll bring the deadline earlier, but yup, will keep you updated if there are any changes with regard to the time frame. Let me know anytime when you're ready with your order then! :)

Hello! It's not too late to add another order, but when I clicked on the above link, the doujin is already sold out. ><;; I have put in a request for re-stock, but I'm not certain whether it'll happen and how long it'd take. So you might want to check up on it again closer to the group order deadline (Mar 20).

If it goes back into stock, just send JPY1,035 (JPY735 + JPY300) to my PayPal address and I'll add it to the rest of your list yup! :)

Hello!

I've sent the payment to your paypal. I'm wondering if you can give an estimate to when the order will reach you?

Thanks!
ilovemiki
Mar. 21st, 2013 06:50 am (UTC)
Yup received it, thanks for the prompt payment! :)

Order should reach me around mid April. It may arrive earlier, depending on how fast the books take to reach the proxy and how fast the proxy sends them out to me.

Please bookmark the group order page for further updates. I'll notify/PM everyone again once the parcel has reached me and the books are ready to be mailed out to you guys! :)

Sorry about that, I've changed my settings in LJ.
As is to my understanding.

Thanks for the info!

1) It's okay, a cardboard backing is fine.
2) No, I don't think i want the package to be bubble wrapped.
3) Nope, I won't be needing a tracking number but an estimate day on when it'll arrive would be great-

Hello! Thank you for your message. I'm still willing to take orders until the payment deadline on 23 Mar, however, the doujin that you're interested in has gone out of stock. ><;;

Sorry about that!

Hello! Ah, I'm not too sure when's the next round of ordering. ><;; Probably not so soon; perhaps at the next big event - Summer Comiket? Tentative at the moment, so I can't give you a confirmed date yet, sorry! :x
