I would be very upset as you are. The question is, would you find the same deals on other proxy service?So for your entertainment, here is how I did on the domestic shipping this time.

So even with EMS and almost twice the weight, the international shipping is less than the total domestic shipping.
So if we include the consolidation fee, last time it was €61.57 for 5 items (4 watches and a silk pocket watch chain weighing nothing), which is €12,31 per item or €15.39 per watch.
This time it is €100.01 for 10 items, all of which are watches, which is of course €10 per watch.
Obviously it's wise to use all of the free 30 day storage period if you buy watches regularly, especially if you buy relatively inexpensive watches like I usually do. It might even be wise to pay the storage fee if you are at the end of your 30 days and you are planning on buying another watch in the next week. Another week of storage will likely only cost you 700 yen (100 yen/day).
Anyway, I got a little carried away with this 10 watch haul, but let's hope this satisfies my itch for a while haha. The 21% VAT on this haul should wake me from my buying craze too!
Imagine living in Japan and being able to buy everything on Yahoo with only domestic shipping and no import taxes...
I have won two auctions from the same seller (one hour between them). The seller shipped them both at the same day, the first I already received, while the second is still (shipped). Both shipped within one hour apart and the first one was received three days ago! That is wierd for sure as they usually take one day to reach the warehouse.
