Shopping Yourself VS Using Shopping Service
Most of clients think shopping themselves is better as they don’t have to pay service fees.
If you purchase only one thing, yes, it should be cheaper way.
But if you purchase many items from many sellers, shopping service should be better.
You have to pay international shipping for each seller if you purchase from many sellers.
It is going to be very very expensive. And you have to talk with each seller about payment and shipping.
By using our service, you just can talk with our staffs and can choose your particular payment method.
Then you can receive many items internationally in one package.
Forwarding Service VS Shopping Service
There are some mail forwarding services.
They lend their address and receive the items and forward the items to you internationally.
It is good concept and it is good for people who understand Japanese very well.
(You have to order items yourself directly by entering Japanese address in Japanese etc.)
Why you use Noppin?
Forwarding service is just forwarding items to your address internationally.
They are not responsible inside the package and so on. They just ship as it is.
The real sellers don’t even know where the final destination.
If they know the item will be ship outside Japan, they should have reinforced packages to survive long distance trip.
You should use forwarding service if the items are not breakable.
Also, you have to pay for the items by the payment method that each real seller requests.
The nonsense thing is they accept major international brand credit cards like Visa, Mastercard and so on.
But many stores don’t accept non-Japanese credit cards.
