Mei here for the first post of the month! Hope you guys loved my post about my birthday. I am still recuperating from the slight injury I incurred to myself. Its a bit stiff still but its not unbearable now like last Monday. LOL. Always watch where you are going guys, especially when taking pictures :))
Anyway, for today’s entry, I will be reviewing something I have been delaying for a while and that’s my review of Zenmarket’s service!
If you guys read my blog from months back, I have reviewed Japan Lover Me’s proxy service (which I totally recommend to you guys). However, when they went on a hiatus last August and I had to prepare for A!Smart’s sale of Taka’s VANS Shoes collaboration, I had to find an alternate proxy service to do it for me.
Although I would have been able to purchase it myself since I have a Tenso account, the shoes got sold out almost 30 minutes since it was released. Eventually, I turned to a YJA to find one. I did find one so the next thing to find is the proper proxy to use.
I did a little research in MFC and other sites regarding the best proxy site with a Yahoo Japan Auctions option. Eventually, some users of MFC recommended ZenMarket.
Zenmarket is quite easy to use and quite straightforward. All you need to do is sign up, locate your item using their search areas (you can also ask them to purchase from other Japanese sites), deposit some funds enough for your purchase (but allot an extra 300 yen zenmarket service fee + roughly 325 yen for money deposit fee when you add funds) and let them do the work for you. Here are the photos of my use of Zenmarket and some other things you have to remember when using it!
There is another item with this box but I did not take a picture of it but it was for my niece’s birthday. Unfortunately, this box got held back by customs and like before, Philippine Customs charged me for importation fees. sigh
Regardless of that setback, I am very pleased with Zenmarket! If you have any questions about it, just drop me a message and i’ll reply :)
Mei’s next entry is still undecided but if I do, I’ll let you guys know.
