Shopping services are something that I don't have too much experience with. I had avoided using for a few years because I was always worried about the complications. They seemed difficult to use, and I was nervous about issues with communication happening. For anyone who doesn't know, a shopping service is a company that will buy things from international websites that don't ship to other countries, and then ship them to you. I decided to finally try using one to take advantage of some of the cheaper prices on the Japanese auction sites like Yahoo Japan, and Mbok. There are so many shopping services to choose from it can be hard to pick. I decided on Japonica Market because I had two people recommend them to me, and it turned out to be a very positive experience.
