Ok so, after I got hit with the Nendoroid fever, I decided to buy a bunch of them that I really liked. Having no proxy at this moment, I decided to try Buyee.jp. I can say that they have a fast response by a multitude of employees (since the first message I have sent, I have had the following representatives replying back: Jenny, Sophia, Karen and some dude I forgot the name because I deleted the message) So if you are looking for a follow up in a personalized way, you can forget about it.

So, Buyee allows you to bid on the items you want, problem is that EVERY TIME you place a bit, Buyee will "pre authorize" that particular amount in your bank. That means, if you are a debit card holder, you might incur in to a bunch of charges that will eventually drop yet they can overdraft you as the money will be reserved for the Buyee charge and eventually drop, yet it will be taken from your account at that time so more important bills might not be able to be paid. Just a thing to keep in mind.

They charge a 10% of every auction ending balance plus a 200 yen for bank transfers. Now if the items are 5,000 or less, they do the base rate on you of 500 yen instead of the 10%.

The part that bothers me tho, is the international shipping fee estimator. DO NOT USE Buyee because of this or you will spend a shiet lot of money in shipping.

If you buy 10 things, like I did, you might want to consolidate your packages in to a big one, right? Well they charge you for that. 200 first package and 300 yen every additional package. Which means, by the time you end up consolidating, you paying around 2500 yen in the "consolidation fee".

Now here is my main issue: I got all the shipping charges per individual package, based on the cost of each pakcage for EMS stated on the "my packages" area, I looked them up here (ext link) to see what was the weight of each that rendered that amount of shipping costs. so far so good. BUT THEN I asked the people at Buyee to know how much would be if I consolidate.

Well here is the issue, I calculated that all my packages come to a total of 16,660 yen IF shipped INDIVIDUALLY.

Ok, so you would think that the consolidated price should be cheaper, as the weight and the cost of each package has a minimum that they charge (the post office) based on the EMS table.

Well what I did was to see how much I was beign charged for each package and then look up the weight on the EMS table.

After having all the weights accordingly with the prices, I calculated that it was a total of around 9,000 Grams which costs 12,900.

WRONG. These people after I asked them for a quote on the consolidation came with this answer:

Hi,

This is Buyee customer support team Jenny.

When we consolidate all it will be under 20kg.

So I recommend you using consolidation service.

EMS shipping fee 25000

Consolidation fee 2300

※Unit price:JPY

WHAT THE ...... how in the world is 25k the consolidation price of all my Nendos... and just under 20g.... it does not makes sense. And the woman "recommends" me to use the consolidation service.. LOL what a joke! Why would I use it if I will be overpaying instead of getting all for 16k with my individual packages.

Now, I am not messaging her about it, I am just gonna go with my bunch of individual packages, rather than paying that absurd amount of money.

This is just a heads up to NOT use Buyee unless you want to be raped by shady and strange charges that don't add up at the end.

ALright to go deeper, lets start doing the math.

These are the individual shipping costs:

8 packages, my bad, not 10 as previously stated.

1,500 yen

1,500 yen

1,500 yen

1,860 yen

1,860 yen

2,400 yen

2,040 yen

4,000 yen

Now, lets look at this (ext link) the Japan post EMS rates and weight.

SO, based on that table, an item that EMS costs is 1,500, weights 500g max. so we have 3 of those.

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,860 yen

1,860 yen

2,400 yen

2,040 yen

4,000 yen

Then, we got an item that cost 1,860, weights 700g (and all this is assuming that the items are at their max "up to" weight)

So we are left with this:

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

2,400 yen -----

2,040 yen -----

4,000 yen -----

Then, the next step is the 2,400 and the 2,040 charges. Weights accordingly for them are 1,000g and 800g accordingly. Alright so we are left with this:

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

2,400 yen ----- 1,000g

2,040 yen ----- 800g

4,000 yen -----

AND finally the biggest package, 4k pertains to a weight of Up to 2,000 g which according to the agent at Buyee, the weight was 1980g

That leaves us with:

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,500 yen ----- 500g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

1,860 yen ----- 700g

2,400 yen ----- 1,000g

2,040 yen ----- 800g

4,000 yen ----- 1980g

Very sexy.

Time to weight in

The champion weight is : 6,680g. NOW this costs above are INCLUDING the packaging that has each figure box inside, so in all actuality, the figures in their original boxes weight less..

So obviously if removed from their shipping boxes and in to a big box, the actual weight of each should fluctuate to around 100g less lets say for each, but lets just not get that complicated.

NOW, that 6,680g translates to 10,700 yen which is the "up to 7,000g" shipping fee.

WHAT THE F... ARE YOU DOING BUYEE!!!!
