Buying Japanese Books, Manga, Mags with BK1 – Part 2

I’m really sorry it took this long for me to get to part 2. Many things happened and one of the main reason is that I’ve moved my blog from blogger to wordpress. I’m pretty much satisfied with how my blog is right now but I’ll be adding some tiny little features here and there.

But enough of me, here’s the second part of my bk1 tutorial. If you haven’t gotten a login ID yet, please follow the directions in the previous post.

At the top you have these:

And scroll down to the bottom:

I’ll go into detail about the shopping cart in the next post. :)

  4. Sorry to bother you a year after you made this post. Hopefully you’ll see this message.

    One of the books in my order has the status 出荷中止:入荷事故 so I’m wondering what’s going to happen to my order? Will they send the other stuff in the order? If that’s so I don’t think they mentioned when they’re going to do that in the mail they sent me… so should I be assuming that they will ship it out? And will they be letting me know soon what the shipping fee is?

    Thank you and sorry to bother you.

    • Sorry for the late reply, for some reason comment notification went into my spam mail. In case of 出荷中止:入荷事故, they’ll cancel that item and ship the rest as usual. They’ll wait for the rest of your orders to be ready before they ship everything.

      • Thank you for your reply :)

        Awww, this is terrible because the book they didn’t have was the one I really really wanted D: I kinda wanted to cancel my order after T_T

  5. Hello! I wanted to thank you for this guide =) I’m a beginner at Japanese so I wasn’t 100% sure if I was doing it right, but finally I placed an order!
    I was hesitant about placing it, but bk1 sent a notification saying it will merge with honto in May and after that new overseas customers won’t be able to register, only overseas customers who have ordered will be able to order from them after merging, really weird =/

    • You’re welcome! I hope the tutorial helped a little. I just realise the images maybe rather outdated. DX

      O.O I didn’t get any notification from bk1 regarding the merge, I wonder if it went to my spam. Does this mean BK1 doesn’t want overseas customers anymore?

      • I don’t know, I received their e-mail a week ago and I thought I wasn’t understanding at all because it sounded so weird, accepting orders from already existent overseas customers but not allowing new ones to register ó_O
        Then I googled it and found forum threads talking about the merge, they confirmed with comments of users who sent questions about overseas customers that it was true.
        Until now I saw the honto website once, but their service was only available for Japanese customers, I guess their policy will prevail then, more than a merge it seems like honto will absorb bk1 (in fact bk1 will change its name to Honto) rather than merge with it.

        • D: Ugh, great. Time to move on to another online bookstore like CDJapan or something… D; I wonder if BK1 was losing money… /WEEPS

          • The new Honto site is up since yesterday and I have already transfered my customer information from bk1, I still have my wishlist and points, so it’s nice, my adress is there too. I haven’t ordered anything yet, but at least it seems like it will be possible without a problem =)

            • That’s great! I haven’t encountered any problems myself, the checkout it’s rather similar to bk1… But I guess it’s time to make another tutorial soon…
