Q:

How long does this free shipping campaign last? How long does it take for the goods to be shipped?

A:

Items which are in stock are required to be delivered within 3 to 7 days after the campaign ends. Items which are out of stock will need to be delivered before 15th February 2017 to qualify for this free shipping campaign.

Q:

Is there a minimum purchase amount for the individual order? Is there a maximum purchase amount?

A:

The minimum amount of an individual order to participate in the campaign is 12,000 Japanese yen.
While there is no maximum purchase amount for this campaign, please be aware that:
※For shipping to United States of America:
Bulky packages and packages that exceed 2kg may result in a shipping fee of more than 4,500 Japanese yen. Any shipping fees in excess of 4,500 Japanese yen shall be borne by the buyer.

For shipping to Mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan:
Bulky packages and packages that exceed 3kg may result in a shipping fee of more than 4,300 Japanese yen. Any shipping fees in excess of 4,300 Japanese yen shall be borne by the buyer.

Q:

If I cancel some items in an order, causing the total amount to fall below 12,000 Japanese yen, do I still qualify for the campaign? (For example, I purchased 4 items at the same store, and the original amount is 13,000 Japanese yen. I then cancelled one of the items, which costs 2,000 Japanese yen and now the total amount of the order is 11,000 Japanese yen.)

A:

No. In such case, the final amount of that order is 11,000 Japanese yen, which does not satisfy the minimum amount to qualify for the campaign. You will need to bear the EMS shipping costs of the order.

Q:

When using Super Points or coupons, the actual amount I have to make payment for does not exceed 12,000 Japanese yen. Do I qualify for the campaign? (For example, I purchased a product, which costs 13,000 Japanese yen. After using 2,000 Japanese yen worth of points or coupons, the actual amount I have to make payment for is 11,000 Japanese yen.)

A:

Yes. Using Super Points and coupons do not affect the criterion for this campaign. Whether an order satisfies the criterion is based on the original price of the order. As long as the original price of the order meets the criterion, you may participate in this campaign even after using points or coupons.

Q:

Why do I need to register in English? How do I type in others languages?

A:

We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Characters in other languages will cause an error on our Japanese servers, so we only accept registrations in English or Japanese. Please input English address for easy identification by local delivery personnel.

Q:

How do I make payment for items purchased on Rakuten Global Market?

A:

The payment methods, acceptance of credit cards, and payment procedures differ from store to store. Many stores accept payment methods such as Visa, MasterCard, Alipay, PayPal, UnionPay, and bank transfers. You may click the “Store Information” hyperlink on the top of each individual store page to find out the full details regarding payment methods, or you may contact the store directly.

Q:

After placing an order using Rakuten Super Points, will the points be refunded if the order is cancelled?

A:

If the Rakuten Super Points used are regular points, the original amount of points will be refunded.
If the Rakuten Super Points are time-limited points, any points that have not expired will be refunded immediately.
If the time-limited points have already expired when the cancellation is fully processed, the points will not be refunded as they have expired.
※If the order is cancelled due to store-induced reasons (e.g. no stock), regular points will be refunded on the first working day after the order was canceled. (The expiry date of refunded points shall retain its original expiry date.) Please contact Rakuten’s Member Support Centre if your time-limited points are not refunded timely.
No points will be refunded if the order was cancelled after the end of the calendar month during which the order was placed, even if it is due to a store-sided reason. If the abovementioned case occurs, please contact the store directly.

Q:

Why can’t I enjoy free shipping despite my order meeting the campaign criterion?

A:

One of the criterion for the current campaign is that the weight of a package for one order may not exceed 2 kg the required weight. Moreover, the carrier has restrictions on the dimensions of the packages. If your order meets the minimum amount but the store still does not provide you with free shipping, your package may be overweight or oversized. Please discuss your options with the store.

※For shipping to United States of America:
If the package exceeds 2 kg or shipping cost exceeds 4,500 Japanese yen, under this promotion, the shipping fees for the additional weight or amount shall be borne by the buyer. Please refer to campaign rule 2.

For shipping to Mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan:
If the package exceeds 3 kg or shipping cost exceeds 4,300 Japanese yen, under this promotion, the shipping fees for the additional weight or amount shall be borne by the buyer. Please refer to campaign rule 2.
In addition, EMS direct shipping must be chosen as the shipping method. Deliveries via forwarding services do not qualify for this promotion.

Q:

What language should I use when replying the email sent by the store to confirm the shipping? How should I reply?

A:

Please reply the store’s emails in either English or Japanese. For example, when confirming the order, please write ‘I have confirmed the order' or '注文の詳細を確認しました'. If you want to cancel the order, please write ‘Please cancel this order’ or ‘この注文をキャンセルしてください'.

Q:

What should I do if my ordered items were damaged during delivery?

A:
