Anyone with experience of using zenmarket? How long does it take to add funds to your account? I have been waiting for about 10 hours for it to credit my account.
Thanks

Yup instant with credit/debit card. Did you use transferwise? Is the amount showing as pending with your bank? Maybe they blocked it?

Maybe a delay between Transferwise and their Japanese bank.

Did notice Transferwise is a new thing with Zen but hadn’t tried it yet.

With zenmarket do you bid on YJP via their account? Or do you create your own? I still have my YJP account, just no funds in any of my japanese banks to make the payment. Or would they do COD?

You can remove receipts, labels and Zenmarket logos on packaging I think.

EMS doesn't seem to be too badly affected at the moment. I got my parcel the day after my Fedex parcels from Japan, all shipped on the 5th and arrived on the 11th. Fedex seems to be the cheapest option at the moment though.

I can't fault Zenmarket. So easy to use and the options they give you for the parcels are excellent. I shipped over 150k Yen worth of gear and zero customs charge.
