Warning: Personal Checks and Bank Drafts

Money orders from banks or private cash services WILL be returned because it is impossible for us to cash them in Japan . Personal checks aren't used in Japan at all. Our Bank takes at least 15 days to process the check or bank draft from you and costs between $25-$40. Please no personal checks and bank drafts under any circumstances. They are extremely inconvenient and cause unnecessary delay in processing your orders. Go to your Local Post Office and order an International Postal Money Order (IPMO) in US Dollars or Japanese Yen. This is extremely important.

This fee range varies due to the route the payment will take. If the payment is direct to our bank, the fee is usually $25. If your bank has a partnership with another bank in Japan, then the fee will come to around $45. We use both Mizuho Bankand Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ Banks in Japan. Please check with your bank regarding the payment route. 

For most large payments, some of our car parts customers, we require them to make their payments only by bank transfer. These are usually large payments and they are paid for large and heavy items that cannot be shipped by the regular post office. Please look at our car parts section for Yahoo Japan Auctions.

Why is the foreign exchange rate different from what I see in the newspaper?

Please do not make the currency conversion yourself using any of the online currency converters or the rates seen on TV/Newspapers. We use the paypal foreign exchange rate minus 1 yen per currency unit. This rate changes daily and we adjust our rate accordingly. This rate is still subject to change if the foreign exchange market is very unstable. Foreign exchange rates displayed and used for your International Transaction will differ from the rates that you may see in the newspaper, on the Internet, or on television. Published foreign exchange rates are often the interbank rates, which banks charge each other for transactions valued at $1,000,000.00 or more.
