The shipping methods proposed on japanpokemoncards.com are:
- International ePacket (by Japan Post)
The mail is first picked up by Japan Post (within Japan), and then will be picked up and delivered by the national post office of the destination country once it arrives there.
With ePacket shipping, you are strongly advised to track the package on the official website of your country’s post office once your order has entered the country.
The tracking will be much more detailed on the official website of the receiving country’s post office than the one provided by Japan Post. The paper notices of passage tend to give way to digital notices of passage which will be then referenced on the site of the post office of your country.
There will be the place where your package will be held, where you will have to go to pick up your order. This information is not shown on the Japan Post website.
This international “ePacket” shipping method by Air Mail includes a tracking number and insurance up to ¥6,000.
Please note that the delivery time of mail delivered by the post office varies.
They depend on several criteria such as holidays, weather, natural disasters, public holidays, strikes, vacation periods, exceptional situations and force majeure, etc.
It is also not uncommon for mail sent a few days apart to fail. You can place an order, then another one a few days later, and the most recent order will arrive first.
We, therefore, recommend that you keep track of your mail regularly to avoid unnecessary stress and to check if your mail is waiting for you at the post office in case it is not deposited in your mailbox.
You will find all the details concerning the shipments, in English, on the official website of the Japan Post in the International Mail section.
We invite you to read it.
