  • Why the amount was different between the one on your site and the one charged to my credit card company?

    We quote in JPY (Japanese Yen), when you pay in your currency by credit card, the JPY amount is calculated with the credit card company's exchange rate. Each credit card company has their own rate and timing of exchange conversion. Please inquire your credit card company for further information. We will not be responsible for losses caused by fluctuations in exchange rates. On the browser, you can set your home currency, this system helps you to valuate the part price, but it's only as a guide.

  • My bank cannot transfer money in JPY (Japanese Yen)?

    Please contact our support team after making your order. Support team helps you for USD or EUR transactions.

  • PayPal currency conversion fee is too much. Any way to avoid ?

    If you make an international payment using your PayPal balance, PayPal's conversion rate will apply. If you make the payment using your credit or debit card, you can choose between your card issuer's conversion rate and PayPal rate.

    Here's how to change your conversion rate when you're making a payment:
    1. Click 'Other Conversion Options' on the ‘Review Your Payment' page.
    2. Choose 'Bill me in the currency listed on the seller's invoice.'
    Select this option to ensure that your credit card is charged in the currency you want.

    If you choose to use PayPal's conversion rate, you can see the rate right away on the payment page.

    If you choose to use your card issuer's rate, the conversion rate will be determined by your card issuer and PayPal won't be able to display the rate to you at the time of payment. To find out about the exact rate, you'll need to check your card statement later or contact your card issuer directly.

    Note: If you use American Express, you can only use your card issuer's conversion rate. If you use Discover card, you can only use PayPal's conversion rate.

    And sometimes buyer cannot select based on that country's policy.
