I had something leave Japan on the 7th and arrived with me on the 19th, taking longer at the minute.

It'll usually be in the UK the day after its left Japan but tracking doesn't update till it's scanned leaving customs, so probably stuck there. If you put the tracking number into Parcelforce it'll update when its at the international hub, and tracking number will change to one beginning with EH

No updates after leaving Japan on the 9th.
Hopefully they are just stuck in transit at the sorting area.

If I get VAT charged after this I’ll be super pissed.

I know for a fact the post office don’t give a shit about Covid as I’ve been In a sorting office during lockdown. So I can’t see why there’s a big backlog at the airports. They have a full workforce and things should be pretty much as normal.

I've been using his service for years and just email him rather than going through the form on his website. In last year or so I have noticed it's not always him responding, and that is the case in this instance.. maybe if I went through with the order he would just mark it down anyway, but not risking it. Maybe he got rumbled?

Zenmarket mark down. Not sure what the costs are for ordering from a retailer, but I believe that they only charge $3 commission.

Zen seems to be running BAU. Parcel started packing on 1st and is ready to ship on 4th.

Do you want to pay fees? Have you bought it yet?

If I can get it mark down that would be great, at the moments its an auction for a Nonnative item. Just wondering who do I use, how much roughly would fees be and shipping.

Thanks

Used zenmarket on a pair of jeans recently, very pleased with the service.
Arrived in a week from japan which is insane considering the lockdown + holiday season and the whole transaction went seamless.

As toin said. Use Zenmarket. You can pick which service to use for postage and have receipts etc, logos removed from packaging, as well as mark down.

You pay a little in insurance for it, which is based on an algorithm, but it means you can claim the declared value from the courier and the rest from Zen if something happens.

What are you guys doing regards postage and markdowns. Have just messaged EeePee, but open to thoughts. I usually use FedEx marked down as Zenmarket offer insurance if the parcel goes missing. Not sure I want to risk a Vis Down Sanjuro getting lost, but the customs will be £££ if marked accordingly.

Just to let people know, I've received quite a few inquiries about the Kapital online store: basically I'll do it for free, I'll need payment in £ via PayPal and I send using EMS.
