What is Package Consolidation

When we started out initially, we were swamped with questions from users about what package consolidation was all about, the merit and the entailed cost to users.

Although it is covered in detail in the Service page and FAQ page.  We are fully aware and understand, the questions arise due to users being cost conscious and cautious not to spend on services or options that they don’t need or see little importance in.   We have decided to take up package consolidation here in order to reach those who failed to read about it in the Service and FAQ pages and also to dispel any fear about cost.

What really is Package Consolidation? , it entails combining or bundling several packages or items into one  package to significantly reduce shipping and insurance cost, reduced transportation cost helps streamline custom procedure, heightened safety due to the reduced risk of package loss or damage as a result of the reduced number of packages and ease of tracking and expediting of shipment to the final delivery address.

Package consolidation enables you to shop as much as you want from as many online Shops as you like without fear of shipping cost skyrocketing, all you have to do is join Myjapanaddress, shop and have your merchandise shipped to your Japan address at check out. When the goods are delivered to our facility, the packages are bundled into a single package resulting in significant savings in shipping cost which can amount to 75% in savings.

Just like taxis that levy a base amount for an initial distance, Courier companies also levy a base amount for an initial weight and the amount increases exponentially with a certain increase in the weight of the package. By consolidating, the base shipping cost is levied only once since it is one box rather than number of times equivalent to the number of packages if they were shipped separately.

Of course, package consolidation is performed at no extra cost to the user so the user should not hesitate requesting his or her goods to be consolidated prior to shipping. Some of the savings gained from consolidation are passed to the user and the percentage passed depends on the membership plan subscribed to.

Package consolidation service is one of those services that users have to consider and take advantage of as there is no better way to reduce shipping cost than to consolidate.

Package consolidation is like a magic wand to package forwarders for being the easiest and best means of cost saving and since package forwarding companies also benefit from the savings made, they are all the while willing to consolidate even when not requested to.

To qualify for the package consolidation service you have to first of all register with MyJapanaddress and get your real unique Japan address and you can start shopping right away and having the things delivered to your newly acquired Japan address by stating it as the delivery-to-address during checkout. The good part is you can buy as many items as you want without worrying about packaging because Myjapanaddress will consolidate them at no extra cost and ship to where ever you are.

What is Personal Shopper

Personal Shopper also known as Concierge shopping or Buy-For-Me shopping is better known in the U.S. as a service used by the very wealthy who don’t want to go through the hassle of going out looking for and trying on fashion items but would rather have the fashion items meet them at their homes where they can try the items under the watchful eyes of loved ones or family members and get their candid opinions rather than some shop keeper who will say nice things just to sell. So the super rich  employ the services of fashion experts to go out and purchase fashion items that they desire for a fee to the personal shopper which in most cases is 10 percent of the cost of the item, which means the more expensive the purchase the better for the personal shopper.
