All orders placed with us are usually processed within 72 hours (3 business days; which fall between Monday - Friday). We do not process orders on weekends or Japanese national holidays. All packages will be shipped from Japan.
The shipping method does not impact the handling time of orders, meaning orders using Express shipping will not receive priority treatment or faster handling time.
In addition, the single card undergoes a special inspection process to maintain quality.
Therefore, it may take up to two week from the time the order is received to the time of shipment.
The shipping durations displayed on our website are average estimations in business days, based on our experience. Please note that the handling time of 72 hours is separate from the shipping time. In some cases, shipping and handling can take longer, especially during high seasons like Christmas or New Year.
Potential delays caused by customs are not included in the estimated shipping time. If you live in a country with strict customs, please factor in some additional time for customs clearance.
As the shipping is not a service of PokeNinJapan but the postal services or FedEx or DHL, delays caused by the post office or customs do not give right to any kind of compensation, suspension or cancellation.
If a shipment is taking considerably longer than expected to arrive, please have your tracking number handy and get in touch with our support team and your local post office. In some cases the tracking status doesn't get updated properly even though your shipment is already at the post office or stuck at the customs inspection.
Pre-ordered items will be shipped within 5 days of release. There may be delays when new products are released due to the large number of orders.
If you order a pre-order item and an in-stock item at the same time, they will be shipped at the same time as the pre-order item.
·If multiple orders are received from the same customer, they may be shipped in the same packaging. If you always need to separate your orders due to customs or other reasons, please contact us.
·Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. However, for goods destined for the UK under £135, VAT is included.
·Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying(incoterms is a DAP.).
·These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.
·We do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as “gifts” – US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
·If your package is lost, stolen, or damaged during shipping, the standard warranty policy of the shipping company (FedEx, DHL, JapanPost) will apply and the warranty fee will be paid to you. If you wish to purchase additional insurance for your package, please contact us.
