First, giving credits where they're due:
Big thanks to SENT who shared the info on the Nippon-Yasan forum thread!

Second, can a mod please put this in "News" category? Even as a VIB, I don't have access to that category.


So, Japan Post posted this news on their website:


The novel coronavirus pandemic has caused many countries/territories to take measures such as stopping acceptance of inbound postal items as well as considerable suspension and reduction of flights from/to Japan. Accordingly, our transportation performance has significantly declined. Therefore, acceptance of international mail items, mainly EMS and parcel-post/letter-post items by air and SAL, will be temporarily suspended from April 2nd 2020. For details, please see the attachment (PDF16KB).

Items which have already been accepted and cannot be dispatched to their destinations will be returned from the delivery offices to the senders in order. In addition, because of the global reduction of flights, considerable delivery delays are expected for outbound mail items to other countries/territories.

To make a summary of the PDF file:

* All types of International mail is stopped in the following countries:
Argentina, Cayman, Chad, Chile, Colombia, Cyrpus, Djibouti, Ecuador, French Polynesia, Guatemala, Honduras, Independent State of Saoma, Indonesia, India, Iraq, Kuwait, Maldives, Montenegro, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Panama, Paraguay, Tunisia, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela.

Credits to EVENSTAR88 for this info:

Mandarake has posted a comprehensive chart of available (or not) shipment methods country by country.
It includes DHL shipment method, along with EMS, Air Mail and SAL.


Please do note that it seems there's some mistakes in the chart here and there (for instance, they offer EMS and Air Mail for Austria, when JP Post specifically mentioned those two options are out for that specific country).


This is awful news for everyone who has preorders in April...
I wonder how the Japanese figure webshops will handle this. :/
Will they put on hold items released during April until at least May (and if yes, will they have the storage capability needed)? Or will they outright cancel those pre-orders...?

Well, for now, the big shops and proxies are going the "keeping on hold items that can't be sent, until postal services resume" route. A list of their announcements, shop by shop

Additionnally, regarding European shops:
Ixu Deviance will send their in-stock items as soon as confinement is lifted in France.
The shop's owner sent me a message on March 18th telling me as such, regarding my order of ITEM #740288 which entered in stock at their shop on that day.

HitomiHimeIl y a 6 mois#77092025Why would stacking up be an issue? Just keep the money you were using to begin with?
I see this all the time on MFC and I don't get it. If you have the money to pay then and it gets delayed...just don't spend it?

That's my plan but I was referring to the things we cannot "predict", i.e rise in bills/unexpected costs like having repairs etc and for me I am also on a reduced wage meaning that the money that is normally there is reduced so that means I have less to spend.

There are always things you cannot account for when saving for figures to buy but as things have turned out the rescheduled shipping dates mean it will work out for myself without too much issue.

ShindoWIl y a 5 mois#77298895Anyone know what is going on with Nippon-Yasan orders? Have some stuff that released / prepaid in March and no shipping notice. Not even a preparation notice.
Nippon-Yasan is a another big can of worms altogether, what's with the various problems unrelated to the Coronavirus outbreak they have since December 2019.

I strongly advise you to check out the forum thread for this shop and ask your question there:

Just to add the info regarding our Webshop:

Basically we will try to upgrade all orders that can be upgraded: SAL to Air, or FEDEX to some countries that don't accept JP Post anymore, whenever possible (free of charge)

If in doubt, don't hesitate to contact our customer service with your order number. We also can hold/store orders until the situation goes back to normal!

Yesterday I realized that Buyee has stopped counting the days of Free Storage, is weird since they hadn’t said anything on their announcement, but I have checked and at least for my 4 packages since the 1st day of April they had between 10-13 days left of storage, yesterday I checked my account and still the same days are left, and today I can likely confirm is true, although not sure if its applies to all users or depends on the country you re from.

LuvlylyIl y a 6 mois#77091903yea, i am in the same situation with biginjapan... sent them an email and i waiting for their reply, if u get any news about them can u post here?
You probably already know but biginjapan announced they will hold on items if they can not be shipped. (just gon a mail, but it's also on their hp)

Quote:"Orders that cannot be shipped will be stored until postal service resumes provided they are paid for."

LizardslikeartIl y a 6 mois#77135312I have a package that shipped on 3/23 Via Registered SAL and tracking hasn't been updated since the shipment date. I'm wondering if that one will be sent back or not. This hobby has definitely helped teach me lots of patience.
My 2 SAL packages shipped 3\28 are still in Posting\Collection status, and I guess they`ll send them back. I hope that shops inform us with e-mail in that case, because I`m worried where my parcels are...
