Hey for those of you who have been wanting to start doing your thing with Yahoo Japan auctions, ShoppingMallJapan, a middleman service, has finally started a referral program which is pretty good. Details here: http://www.shoppingmalljapan.com as well as a spring sale (good for April)
All you need is someone who is already a member and has won an auction to give them the auction ID that they won. Which a number of people on the boards here can provide.
I haven’t been using SMJ in a while but saw this today. Their service is sometimes not as good as I would like, but I’ve never had any huge problems with them and never had anything lost.
Be careful to read all the details about shipping and fees though. You may think something is a good idea for 1000yen (~$10) but then after shipping and fees is all said and done, you may be spending four times that or maybe more.
