About CDJapan Proxy Shopping Services
We are now offering services to "shop on your behalf" for products that are not available on our site, but are available at other online shops in Japan.
You can also order multiple items from different shops (including CDJapan) and have them shipped out together* without further charges.
Moreover, we will no longer charge you for additional proxy fees afterwards. By redesigning to a clear and simple pricing structure, we hope for customers to feel more safe using our proxy service by showing all required proxy fees beforehand.
1. You will be charged with international shipping fees or volume weight fees(*) afterwards if your order is applicable due to size/weight.
(*)Volume Weight Fee: DHL & FedEx charges a volume weight fee affected by the amount of space that it occupies, rather than the actual weight.
