Why use a proxy bidding service to get items from Yahoo Auctions Japan?

Since eBay has not been available in Japan from 2004, Yahoo Auctions has become the largest auction website in Japan. So, this is the main reason for most resellers of rare items and collectibles have migrated here after 2004. Well, now in this is one of the most interesting places to buy new and used Japanese goods at great prices.

But there is a bad thing too. It is very difficult to register on Yahoo Japan Auctions if you do not live in Japan. Indeed, a domestic shipping address in Japan and a Japanese bank account or credit card as a payment method are required to bid on the biggest auction site of Japan. Another bad news, sellers on Yahoo Auctions speak Japanese only, which is a problem if you have an issue with the product or a question to ask.

The most affordable way and easiest solution for foreigners to get products from Japanese Yahoo Auctions is to use a proxy-buying service, like Remambo. Using Remambo, you can enjoy real-time bidding on the biggest Japanese online auction. This means that you don't depend on the operator who manually enters bid for you. You can track the items and bid at any time, 24 hours a day. Now you can enjoy Yahoo Auctions just as if you lived in Japan!

Lolita clothing from Angelic Pretty

Angelic Pretty is a Japanese fashion brand specialized in lolita fashion. Even if they opened an official English website a few years ago, it's still interesting for online shoppers to have a look on Japanese auctions to get rare dresses. Because it was difficult for foreigners to get Angelic Pretty before 2008, some of their collections were only sold in Japan.

Also, there are several of Angelic Pretty physical stores in Japan. That makes it very easy for Japanese lolitas to buy limited-edition Angelic Pretty items. Yahoo Auctions JP is the first marketplace where gothic lolitas resell and buy their best outfits.
