i agree with you it is ridiculous pre order means the cd is not release yet so not shipped yet ... its just ridiculous . i understand if the cd is already shipped hey can't change the address but if its not even in a box or in a box but not shipped whats the big deal about changing the adress ?

Yesss I was so psyched to hear this. Too bad it came AFTER I placed my order for MOON/blossom T.T but if/when I order the next single I'm so taking advantage of it. So much cheaper too. EMS: 6CD=3600; FedEx: 6CD=1880. Can't beat that with a stick.

well, here f*king FedEx sent my RnRC back to Japan and they've said directly if I would use EMS I won't have any problems nor with them nor with customs(that all was because of tea which is not allowed for FedEx here). I just want to say that it works not for all countries
Here I have to pay extra funds to FedEx if I want them to give me my parcel faster than in 1 month after it's arrival to my country, etc. Their service is really awful comparing to EMS

Ouch. That sucks. Yeah, from what I've heard FedEx is really only 99% cost effective and reliable for North Americans guess this kind of confirms it.

I have a question regarding CDJapan's first press items. Not Ayu related, but I've ordered Namie's PLAY and STYLE, and in the both album pages on CDJapan it said that the first presses were sold out, but nevertheless I've received PLAY with the first press sticker in it, and STYLE with two bonus tracks that you get only with FP version of the album.

Can anyone explain how's this possible? (Not that I'm complaining, I'm just curious xD)

thats true fedex is mostly effective in north america but not to every country thats why you have to be carefull depending where you live to choose the most efficient .
maybe we should start a rating of those post office companies on the forum to compare which one works better in which country .

I need help with 5music! I can't read chinese But it seems like they offer the cheapest price among all, so I want to order from there. I managed to create an account with Google Translate, and added items to my shopping cart. Problem is, how the heck do I proceed? D:



The red buttons don't translate -___-;

Okaaay, thanks for that XD That's done and done, hopefully everything goes well.

I have another issue. Not Ayu-related, but it's CDJ nevertheless. I just got an email about a shipping charge update, and I have to approve it. How exactly am I supposed to 'approve' it is my problem. Besides the fact that the shipping is exactly the same as before =__= Haha, why is there so many problems with this XD

Can anyone recommend any good deputy services? I want to order stuff through YAJ that I honestly cannot find ANYWHERE else but I don't know which service to use... I know of tenso, Crescent-shop, and Shopping Mall Japan. But the latter two require deposits and looking on tenso's site, it seems like they pretty much just give you an address and figure out the rest yourself. @_@ I'm looking for something easy, affordable, and trustworthy.

i have a question regarding hmv jp.
i wanted to pre-order an album from them,after seeing the final price,its actually the same price i paid to cdj.so,i wonder if they adjust the price in the future(reduce the price),am i eligible to buy the album for cheaper price?
example,i pre-order a CD.the original price is 3800yen.after i check out,the price hmv showed me is 3500yen.so,i wonder if next week,they plan to giveaway the 'online special price',am i eligible to get the online special price also?if i don't eligible to get the online special price,i think i'll order it from cdj since the price is the same

usually for HMV Japan , they will state whether a certain single/album gets to enjoy special discount price just for online members at the very beginning which usually applies to CD + DVD's of singles , albums & sometimes concert DVDs

if it's not stated , then the price they will charge will be without tax lor

I think they will do what CDJapan does in that bill you the lower price

I seen that happened to HMV HK before when I used to order stuff from them via preorder

I always get billed the lower priced cost of the item from HMV HK . I haven't seen it happening to myself with regards to HMV Japan :O
