How to order from Japan in US?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about buying a sony PHA-1 or the new 2. They are japan only models. Can anyone point me to a thread or give me some tips for buying online from a company in japan that has an English friendly site and ships to the US?

Thanks!

no problem

 

Tenso will give you an address to use once you set up an account

have stuff shipped to that address- can combine shipping- pay weight based shipping fees and service fees 

 

for me the challenging part was adding the Tenso address to the Amazon account 

try copy and paste method

 

 

credit card company charge different exchange rates than publish rates and add a fee

Paypal has extra fees and exchange rates too

 

take all into consideration, some things are not as cheap as they appear
