1. Why can't eroge games/magazines be shipped outside japan

2 I just bought a bunch of books yesterdays just checked my status and it says this
Edit http://i50.tinypic.com/1zbqsed.png

now when I click that it ask me to edit info/add new credit card my question is that always there or did I do something wrong..(Is pretty sure he entered hes credit card info right..)


I'm a bit worried because I've never bought anything from amazon.jp..

I can't answer your question, but I have a really quick suggestion.

Your name and address shows on that image you linked. Please erase that; we don't need to know.

that's just amazon's policy. if there's something on amazon and you reaaaally need it and can't get it elsewhere, give dankedanke a look

I got that same problem with amazon jp, they insist on charging you in JPY (rightly so, since they operate from Japan), but my local bank in Tanzania does _NOT_ allow for currency conversion from JPY (they only allow USD, EUR and GBP). To walk around this limitation, I had to open an online virtual visa, so that I could transfer my funds from my bank to the virtual visa, then use the virtual visa to do my JPY shopping. Note, using a virtual visa means that you will need to pay the virtual visa provider, which means the value of things will increase a bit.

currently I am using Entropay ( http://www.entropay.com/ ), they are based in the UK and charge me 4.95% on every top-up. Have no problem with them so far. You might wish to find another virtual visa provider and compare them before you commit yourself.

Whoa. I never knew anything like this existed. Can you name me a decent Japan-based one? This could be a way of getting around restrictions on DMM et. al.

I don't know about Japanese virtual visa sites, but with enterpay, they allow you to use any address with their card (I am actually using it with the USofA PSN, had to use Apple's contact address :p).

EDIT: the rest of the post didn't make sense, sorry

Credit card is not expired.
Sent amazon a email and I got this


Thank you for writing to us at Amazon.co.jp.

We wanted to let you know that your credit card is being declined by the issuing bank.


name of the card holder: 
Unfortunately, we are unable to determine exactly why your credit card was declined, only that your credit card company declined the charges when we asked them for approval. You may wish to contact your credit card company to inquire about their policies regarding electronic or internet purchases. Some banks do place certain restrictions on such purchases, and this may be the source of the problem. Alternatively, if the card has been updated or revised in any way recently, we will need to receive that new information so that we can process this order successfully for you.

If you would prefer to use a different card for this order, you are welcome to submit that information via phone or fax. For security reasons, please do not send your credit card number via e-mail. Customer Service can be reached from 9AM to 9PM, 7 days a week at the following number."

Dammit >_>

Hopefully I can fix this (Really wants hes Alice parade art book >:()


Thanks for the link for that site now I can buy me some Dengeki himes >:0!

I'll go out on a limp here and suggest that while you are checking with the bank, ask them if they process JPY currency as well?

There are services to allow you to buy stuff available only in Japan and then have it shipped outside. Like this one:
http://en.kaigai-tenso.com/
I have no personal experience with them, I just know they exist.

Call you credit card company. Large foreign transactions often trigger fraud protection. I suspect that's what happened here.

Tenso anyone? I heard that you can use it to buy stuff from Amazon.jp pretty easily although I never personally used their service before.

Tenso are cool.

Got some stuff shipped over from Japan last week.

They charge a service fee, but its not too much. I recommend them.

To get some items shipped over to the UK, it cost me 5,490 Yen (41.00 GBP roughly)
