First time trying to buy from online...
according to yesasia, I am eligible for free shipping.. but what if *touch wood* my things got lost? Free shipping means no way of tracking right?
What are the chances of things getting lost?
I'm wondering if I should spend a little more just to ensure my stuffs will arrive...

And do I have to pay GST or whatever taxes? B'coz if I have to, I might as well get from local HMV.

And can I use debit card to pay?

If they loose something , send them a mail with the item lost ect ..
They will give you a date and if the item is not arrive at the date , they say to send another mail .
If you send at this time they will resend the item .
I had a problem with my calendar so I have mailed Yesia they said to wait and if I receive nothing they will resend me it .
I ordered many times here and no problems =)


If shiping is free you will not have taxes .

In the case of free shipping , yes there's no way you can track it should your items get lost *touch wood* .

But YesAsia always tend to give you an estimated time frame as to when to expect roughly when your items arrive . If it's over the estimated time frame & you haven't received your items by then , then best's to contact them .

For paying a bit more for the shipping to ensure your items arrive faster & in front of your doorstep , not worth it I say . Do so only if you have the means to afford it . If you can , then go for it .

I used the fast express shipping only once & my item came 2 days later :O

& also from my experiences ordering from YesAsia , you don't have to pay GST/taxes

you can provided only if the debit card that you have in question's this one -> http://www.dbs.com/posb/cards/master...s/default.aspx

I have it , used it & it works well like a credit card in disguise when I buy things online

if not then use PayPal

if you get a VCD version of the concert, it's embedded into the concert, but a DVD version have a separate sheet with chinese on it

idk about this one, but i've brought 4 ayu DVDs and that's how they do it

no no what I mean's that those artistes that're already under avex , the OS presses of their DVDs are not fitted with inbuilt chinese subtitles unlike in the case for OS presses of JE's DVDs where that happens

sorry if I confuse you

oo i get it
that's why i would rather buy the DVD of ayu's concert, the subtitles are always in the way, but unless you have a concert where someone talks a lot, then built in subs would be better

for me I can't be bothered to read the translation sheets that were provided separately from the DVD , I don't mind built in subs as I'm lazy & etc

Oh..a separate sheet, I think it is rather inconvenient. Because I have seen people uploading the Dome Tour 2001 with chinese subtitles and it doesn't seem embedded..it looks original. Is that the vcd version or wat? Haiz, I think I would go for DVD then since the quality is better..but the same time I want to see the subs too ><

Is there anywhere selling the overseas dvd version? can't find in yesasia..

if you can wait , you can use YesAsia , it takes longer as compared to other online services that I used imo

if you can spend a bit more on the shipping , I say go for CDJapan . It takes about 4-5 days for my stuff to come which's quite fast & that's for normail airmail

I always order via YesAsia and it usually takes a week or a week and a half before it arrives.

CDJapan always ship a day or two before release. And speed of delivery depend on shipping method - so choose EMS + cdjapan and you will got fastest delivery

If price doesn't matter, use CDJapan. They will get it to you within a few days.

Yesasia has this new thing where items that qualify for free shipping can only use the free shipping method. The free shipping method will probably take about a week.

HMV.jp preorder status

I ordered from HMV.jp for the first time to preorder the USB and was wondering if you guys know when do they usually ship out preorders...is it on the release date? I know cdjapan ship before the release date and they update the order status to shipping in progress when the item is ready to be shipped. Does HMV do that?

HMV usually sends on release date, because it's real store and they will get cds on it's release date

usually HMV Japan tend to ship out a few days early before the actual release date just like CDJapan so no worries on that
