I'm sure this is a bit of a long-shot, but I'm willing to give it a try!

Is there anybody out there who is a Rinkya user? If so, would anybody be willing to bid on/purchace an item for me? (I made the mistake of casually browsing through.. and I just saw an item that I MUST. HAVE. ;_;) It's nothing big-- Just a simple doujinshi and some stationary.

I would pay anyone willing to help back in full, of course. And also a little extra, just to be fair. HOWEVER, (this is important!) I can only pay by usps MONEY ORDER. But, I always am able to send one out the day or day after I buy something, so I promise, there would not be much of a wait! (I'd even be willing to priority-mail send the money order.)

I have excellent e-bay feeback, if anyone considoring helping me out needs a look at that. :3

Also, here's my e-mail for good measure: ZeroDimensionMuffin (at) hotmail (dot) com!

i have to say, i used them ONCE, and fees with them are RIDICULOUS. i got a like $12 item, and it cost me $50 total after all the fees. i like celga better personally x_X

oh i'm not sure if that will help you if you can only send payment by money order x_X sorry~

Celga's better, I agree. Except you have to deposit half your max bid with them before they bid.

Hmm, i've heard of Celga, I believe.. But the thing is, these sort of services won't take money order payments, which is why I'm requesting the help. Thanks for the tips, though! ;-; I had no idea Rinkya was so expensive..!

What were you wanting to bid on? Celga charges $5 for every auction below 1,000 yen, plus a $2 bank transfer fee per auction unless some are from the same seller. I might be interesting in helping you, depending on how fast you could get the payment to me if you won. ^.^

It is this doujinshi (and stationary, looks like?) right here: http://rinkya.com/twview.pl?URL=http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b77405679

I'm a huge fan of this doujinshi circle, and I rarely ever see their stuff around.. ;-; The price looks pretty good to me, and it *IS* below 1,000 yen, as you can see.

As I said, I would pay you by money order- And I would send it out the day or day after you know the total for me to pay you. If I send the payment by priority mail, depending on where you live, it usually takes about 2-3 days at most. ^^

Looking at the auction it looks like the shipping cost is 1,000 yen, which would be about $9 with the exchange rate. So before shipping to the US, I'm guessing the total would be $21 if no one else bids on the auction. And then shipping to you would be anywhere from $5 to $12 depending on how fast you wanted it.

If that's all right with you, I'll contact Celga ASAP. ^.^

That sounds fine to me! Please, by all means, do go on ahead and contact them. :3

Also, if you have any more questions for me, and/or if you win the auction, please contact me by e-mail. :3 (I worry i'll forget to check back on this post. XD;; )

In any case, Thank you so much!

With the deputy I use, the item + shipping within Japan would only be $17. Then there is shipping to japan to me, which would be $5ish(I have huge packages sent at once, so you would pay a small portion of the shipping cost. My last package sent EMS was $120 LOL)Based on the pictures shippin then from me to you would be no more than $8.

Just wanted to give you a few more options. I want to have a package sent to me by the end of the month. If you would want me to get it for you reply back. I do not use Rinkya or celga.

I changed the amount with in japan. If the item ended at the current price,with the exchange rate my deputy uses the item would be roughly $6 + $1 comission fee(becaues it is under 1100 yen) + $8 shipping within japan.

Thanks for the offer! I think this time around has been taken care of.. But, Perhaps, if I see something on yahoo japan again sometime, I could request your assistance then? O:
