Fee Structure

1. For one-off transactions

The one-off client is responsible for the:

1. cost of the item/s + domestic shipping

2. the cost of EMS shipping

3. a service charge of either:

a. 1200 yen (c.USD14) (for orders under 26,666 yen**) + 10% of the item cost.

**26,666 yen being the sum total of [cost of product + cost of domestic freight].

2. For ongoing transactions

An ongoing transaction means orders that the client places on a regular basis, GoodsFromJapan dispatching the goods when they accumulate, or when the client demands dispatch. Such clients maintain a running account with GoodsFromJapan.

Ongoing clients enjoy generally lower service charges than one-off clients, but, after sampling our service, are required to forward a preliminary, negotiable and refundable initial sum as proof of their intention to continue as an ongoing client. For ongoing clients we offer a personalized, private and instantly accessible online account balance sheet for quick and easy confirmation at any time of goods ordered and current account balances.

To qualify as an ongoing client, one needs to order roughly 250,000 yen/month of goods.

The ongoing client is responsible for the:

1. cost of the item/s + domestic shipping

2. the cost of EMS shipping (any and all shipping costs)

3. a service charge of either:

a. 3000 yen (c.USD30) (for each individual item under 30,000 yen**)

b. 10% of the sum total of [cost of product + cost of domestic freight] (for each individual item 30,000 yen** or over).

**30,000 yen being the sum total of [cost of product + cost of domestic freight].
