I could say I left it there ages ago and a friend has sent it back now.

I bought a Lhamo from YJP via Zenmarket that had full tags etc still on it so couldn't really lie, but equally you could say it is used so the value on the tag does not reflect what it is listed as.

Chance your arm and see. Its in the UK now I assume, so can't necessarily get lost? The only risk is, if Parcelforce do lose it, you'll only get back what you declare.

Yeah I can’t tell if there are tags in it…. but I guess that if the tag is in it they would have simply charged me accordingly?

Tricky one, if they inspect and the price is different to what you declare they may ask for proof of payment, they wanted to see my paypal statement a few years ago, even asked if there were any emails.

Do I need to do anything after winning an auction with Zenmarket? Or do they get in touch when they receive the item? First time I've used them.

What is the wait time for hearing from Zen at the moment? No word from the warehouse.

Just used Stylistics (fellow fuker) for the first time. Brilliant comms and items arrived within a week to the UK. Highly recommend

Anyone got recommendations for avoiding customs with EMS?
Using FromJapan.

Outta luck if you’re using fromjapan, they won’t mark any lower than 75% of the true value of the item.

That’s why I switched to Zenmarket who, while may be a little delayed processing and shipping orders recently, have been spot on. Especially as they allow you to declare whatever value you want on customs. Usually declare around 1,000 and that does the trick nicely.

Cheers. Any intel on shipping speed/type used, or doesn't matter?

Just go EMS for a regular order…. unless shipping is gonna cost over 15-20,000..in that case better off with SAL..only takes an extra 10 days or so (even though they quote a fair bit longer,,like up to 2 months if i remember rightly?)


Only had one package go missing in the entire time shipping stuff out, and even then they 'found' it a week or so later after filing the claim.

Looks like fromjapan have added the option back in




Edit: no you're right, can't mark down individual item amounts to less than 75%
Shit.

Fedex have delivered my package, but have also just text me to let me know that I have to pay some customs and duty charges…
Seems suspect. Guessing I can ignore the text now they've delivered?
