    Default Buying gear from Yahoo Japan

    Did a quick search and couldnt find a thread with any details on it.

    Im guessing there may be people who have tried (and succeeded ?) to buy items through Yahoo Japan at one stage and ship back to aus?

    I having trouble working out how to place an order and pay for it etc. (paying for the item and working out the shipping seems to be the biggest problem for me)

    Anyone done this successfully?

    People buy all the time. You have to use a 3rd party importer to by on your behalf.

    I use/ have used robert @ ep importers, ewan @ hayatonka and jesse streeter.

    They will work out postage after you by the item and can weigh it.

    On top of the price. You'll have to pay shipping to them in japan. Shipping to you and a small % of the price you paid for the item

    So it does add up quickly.

    To search ae86 parts what I do is
    Download google chrome
    Use the translater function
    Go to www.yahoo.jp
    Yahoo "ae86"
    The first link to come up will be ae86 items on the auction page.
    Click the link and start searching
    On the left hand side click "used parts" It'll filter all pages of pages of one single item. Usually coilovers body kits and roll cages lol

    Im not sure how to search specific items as they never come up when type in the search. Its very hit and miss.

    I have it down pat......I have been buying off yahoo for around 10 years now.

    I have always used Streeter.

    Chris, what are EP Importers and Hayatonka like? I havent really heard to much about them. Im happy with Streeter, so ive always stuck with him I guess........

    ^^^ A++ to McLEVIN on the google chrome and translate. I manged to place an order etc and read a confirmation email. but no avail with payment etc. wasnt quite clear how to pay as normally ebay takes paypal. lol.

    i have sent a couple of query emails to jesse streeter probably a year ago.

    is he still in the business as delivery proxy? seemed like a decent fella on the internet but hard to say if i would get my package in the end.

    Im not buying anything performance related. just some cupholders. haha

    but never know what i might need to get in future. they got some pretty mint / cool stuff on there.

    I use firefox and read through it in Japanese.

    Once you find an auction you want I open it in a new tab......as i type this, I have three windows open and approx 15-20 tabs in each window.

    I do a search for newly added items 2x a day. I never miss anything AE86 related.
