    How to bid on Yahoo! Auctions using FROM JAPAN

    Here's our guide on how to place a bid on a Yahoo! Auctions Japan listing.

    First, you must have sufficient funds in your deposit, or available FJ Points.

    Before bidding, you will need to either place a deposit or purchase FJ Points.

    To add a deposit, click the "Add funds" button,
    and you will be able to add funds using either PayPal or a credit card.

    Alternatively, you can purchase FJ Points through a direct bank transfer.

    1 FJ Point is equivalent to 1 Japanese yen.

    Go to Help > Payment > FJ Points
    for more details about purchasing FJ Points.

    Once you have sufficient funds available in your account,
    you can bid on an auction.

  • You can either place a real time bid, or a sniper bid.

    For sniper bids, your bid will be automatically placed
    5 minutes before the scheduled ending time.

    Next, input your bid amount and quantity.

    For auctions with a "Buy It Now" option,
    placing a bid for the indicated amount will automatically win the item.

    Continue by clicking on the "Bid" button.

    On the following page,
    you can review your bid details and select a purchasing plan.

    We offer two purchasing plans.

    You can select either our Buyer Protection Plan or Basic Forwarding Plan.

    Once you've reviewed your bid and selected a plan,
    check to indicate you've confirmed and agreed to our Terms and Conditions,
    and click "I agree with all the terms and conditions".

    And you're done!

    We'll send you an email to let you know if you win the auction.

FROM JAPAN Customer Testimonials

The 'Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector's Edition' arrived in perfect condition and so I am very pleased with my purchase. The best thing about this product was that it contained several exclusives only available to Japan (the rest of the world did not receive the extra 'Final Fantasy XV Kingsclaive' bonus disc, the extra drama CD, or the extra game DLC). Thank you.

I was really looking for this product so when I saw it, I immediately used FROM JAPAN to buy it. Packaging-wise, I am satisfied. The people behind the packaging really took care... so much bubble wrap. :D It is a kind of relief that they intend for the product to not get squished even if it's not fragile. :)) The packaging is quite big though...
