How Shipping Charges are Determined

Post Office and FedEx determine shipping costs based on how much packages weigh. Therefore, instead of determining the shipping charge of an order based on quantities of items included, we determine it based on the standard unit weight of items to approximate how they determine shipping costs to minimize any variance between actual costs and our shipping charge.

On each product page, the standard unit weight for the specific type of the item is listed, to indicate how the shipping charge for the item is to be determined. Please note that it does not represent the actual weight of the item, because it is not possible to obtain actual weights of items individually as record companies, publishers, and manufactures usually do not have such information available. We include in the order weight the item weight and its packaging (box and bubble wrap)/

For items that are listed as "BOOK" the actual weight varies too widely, depending on various factors including but not limited to the size, number of pages, and the quality of paper. It also varies widely, depending on types of publication, such as manga, magazine, novels, photography, and so on. Therefore, the standard weight for "BOOK" is subdivided as detailed in the table below.

Publication Type Standard Unit Weight
Magazines 800-1200g
Manga 300-400g
Novels 250-400g
Photobooks 800-1200g

Package Weight

In addition to item weights, package weights also need to be considered, to approximate how Post Office and FedEx determine shipping costs. For each item, our site calculates the package weight corresponding to its type and quantity. The package weight per item varies between 30-100g.

Shipping Charge Updates

When your order enters the shipping process, we weigh your package to reflect the actual shipping charges. Even if the actual shipping charge is greater than your current shipping charge , we will bear the additional costs. However, if the difference turns out to be too great, we need to additionally charge you for the actual shipping charge. In such case, we will email you for your approval before shipping. You may approve or cancel your order. However if your order includes a proxy item, you will not have the option to cancel.
