Has any body here ever tried to use auctions.yahoo.jp form abroad? I am looking at maybe upgrading to a used C-XXX series clamshell. Since e-bay bombed over there, it seems that yahoo would be the place to look.


Thanks for any help,

Yes, I have used it to purchase rare Japanese games in the past.

The problem is that most of the sellers will not ship abroad so, you will need to use a Auction Proxy Bidding Service like Rinkya or Mail Order Japan unless you know someone living in Japan that would be willing to bid on the items you are interested in.

I used Mail Order Japan. They basically let you use one of their accounts to bid on items that you want. There is usually a 5% fee for the service and you must provide them with half of your planned maximum bid upfront. They accept payment through PayPal only. You can also pay extra for a sniping service if you want.
