How to Shop on Amazon Japan

# International shipping conditions on Amazon Japan

Amazon Japan can ship some items to over 60 countries around the world. Unfortunately, not all sellers offer this option. This is especially true for used goods dealers or small companies. They often don't know how to ship products to the US or Europe. Because of this, it can often happen that a product that you are trying to buy cannot be shipped abroad.

But don't panic! We have developed a proxy buying service that enables you to shop on Amazon Japan. You have access to all products just as if you were living in Japan. In fact, White Rabbit Express can help you shop at thousands of online Japanese stores.

# How to Shop on Amazon Japan: A Step-by-Step Guide

Now we're going to tell you how to use White Rabbit Express to buy your items from Amazon Japan, even if the delivery address is overseas.

# Step 1: Go to Amazon.co.jp

First, go to amazon.co.jp

The Amazon Japan user interface is the same as that of Amazon.com. Except, of course, that everything is written in Japanese. Fortunately, you can change the language to English or Chinese by clicking the globe icon on the main menu. This will automatically translate the website into the desired target language. Since these are machine translations, they will often be incorrect. We therefore only recommend this function if you really do not understand Japanese at all.

# Step 2: Look for Articles

You can search the articles directly in the search bar at the top of the website. Otherwise, you can also choose the categories you want to browse by clicking on the main menu.

If you do not want to use a proxy purchase service, select the "Amazon Global Eligible" filter option on the sidebar of the search page. This option is listed in a category called International Shipping. Unfortunately, this option does not allow you to see items that are only available in Japan.

We therefore recommend that you browse and see whether the item you want to buy cannot be sent from Amazon to your address abroad. If so, you can skip to step 3 to find a solution.

# Step 3: Copy the links from your article to White Rabbit Express

If one of your articles cannot be sent to you, all you need to do is copy all the URLs from the product pages. To get the URL with the link to the article, open the product page in a new tab. Place the mouse pointer in the address bar of your browser. Click Ctrl + A to select the whole address and then Ctrl + C to copy it.

Now go to the White Rabbit Express app and move your mouse pointer into the field for the article link. Now press Ctrl + Vm to paste the article URL into the field. Click on "Next Step" or "Next". You will need to repeat this step for each item that you want to buy.

# Step 4: package consolidation, repackaging and shipping methods

We will send you an email when we have received your package. If you have another package in your order, you can combine both packages. With the consolidation you can save shipping costs abroad. We can also repackage your package if your Amazon package looks too brittle.

The final step is to choose the international shipping method. White Rabbit Express offers a wide variety of shipping methods including EMS, International ePacket, FedEX, Airmail, SAL and Sea Mail. Once you are done, all you have to do is wait for the package to reach you.

# Frequently asked questions

# Why do I see this error message: "Sorry, this item cannot be shipped to the address I selected"?

This warning message appears if you want to complete an order with an item in your shopping cart that cannot be shipped abroad. In fact, most used goods or products licensed exclusively for Japan cannot be shipped abroad.

# How can I view Amazon Japan in English?

All Amazon Japan content is usually displayed in Japanese. However, you can change this by using one of the two methods that we are about to show you.

# Amazon language settings

There is a possibility to set the language on Amazon Japan. In the main menu of the website you will find a globe symbol at the bottom and next to it "JP". Here you can choose between Japanese, English and Chinese. If you select English, you can search for articles as usual using search words in the Latin alphabet.

Most product names are machine translated into English. However, the translation is incomplete so you will miss out on some products that have not been translated correctly if you search in English. It is therefore a good idea to search for the products in Japanese if you don't want to miss an entry.

Also note that some words are not translated at all. Therefore, sometimes you will find the product descriptions and titles in their original version.

# Translate the website with a Chrome extension

You can use the Google Translate extension for Chrome to translate Amazon Japan into the target language of your choice. While this tool is very effective, some translations will still be wrong.

# Does Amazon Japan accept PayPal?

The answer is short and is no. However, White Rabbit Express accepts payments via PayPal. So we can buy items for you on Amazon Japan, even if you only want to pay with PayPal.

We also accept credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Discover from around the world.

# Does Amazon Japan ship to my country too?

Amazon Japan's international shipping program covers 60 countries. This means that some goods can be sent to any conceivable address in these countries without the need for a proxy buyer or intermediary. However, many items offered on Amazon Japan cannot be sent abroad at all. In this case, it is better to use White Rabbit Express or Blackship to get your Japanese goods to your country.

# How do I buy MP3 files on Amazon Japan?

Amazon Japan has an interesting catalog of MP3 files for J-Pop fans. Unfortunately, if you don't live in the land of the rising sun, it can be very difficult to buy digital media on this platform.

To access restricted digital content, you must cover up the fact that you do not live in Japan. You will also need to set up an Amazon account with a Japanese address and payment method when completing the purchase process. Your IP should also be in Japan.

In other words, you will not be able to download digital content unaided unless you are connected through a VPN and provide personal information about someone who lives in Japan.

The easiest way to get your desired digital products is to use a proxy buying service like White Rabbit Express. We can provide our corporate address in Tokyo and we will pay on your behalf with one of our Japanese credit cards. Learn more about our service

# How do you buy books on Amazon Japan?

# Printed books

You can buy printed books as well as other tangible goods. Just follow our step-by-step guide shown above.

# Japanese e-books for Kindle

There are four things you need to buy Japanese e-books for your Kindle:

  • A Kindle or a device onto which you can download the Kindle app.
  • A credit card. This does not necessarily have to be linked to a Japanese bank account.
  • A Japanese email address. You can use Blackship.com, our courier, to get one.
  • A Japanese VPN that allows you to surf Amazon with a Japanese IP.

When you have all of this available, you can create an account on Amazon Japan. Once you have created this Japanese account, all you need to do is sign in to your Kindle or app with this new account. If your Kindle is already registered with an account from another country, you need to go to "Manage your content and devices", then go to "Settings" and change your place of residence to "Japan".

From then on, you will be able to access Japanese e-books on Amazon. We encourage you to test your device by downloading a free e-book. When this works, you can start shopping for your ebooks as if you were in Japan.

Special tip: You can set up an Amazon account in another region and send yourself books as gifts from your Japanese account.

# Can I use my Amazon account in Japan?

You cannot use your German or Austrian account on the Japanese version of Amazon. If you want to buy Japanese items for yourself, you need to open a new account.

You are also free to use your German account on the German version of Amazon when you are in Japan. However, you will experience the same import restrictions as outlined above for Amazon Japan.
