can someone tell me what exactly rakuten is? I'm sure I could look it up but I'm sure one of you could explain it better. And why don't more people use it? Just saw some trove products that are super cheap compared to the trove website prices, but I couldn't find the sizes... Is the shipping killer or something? sorry for dumb question. Thanks for answers.

Just going to post this in this thread aswell. As I guess someones going to want this:

This might be a little bit off-topic here. Really didnt know where to put it.
But I can proxy a Visvim Artifact jacket ( green ) in size 3, if it is still avilable, for 30% off. Originally costs 950USD and is now avilable for 660-670ish.
If anyone is interested contact me. I live in Sweden, so of course the shipping is a little bit higher, suppose it will cost 150SEK ( 23USD ) within Europe and 180SEK ( 28USD ) to get it shipped worldwide, outside of Europe that is.
I dont have the money for the jacket right now, but it is the first time I think I have seen Vis on sale, so send me a message if you want it!

Not my picture, just to give you a picture of how it looks!

Thanks

I want this question answered aswell. Have found so much stuff on yahoo.jp and rakuten, but Im uncertain on whether I should buy it or not ( due to shipping-costs etc ). I read somewhere that I need to proxy the stuff I buy from there, is that true? Or can I just order it from the website and get it sent directly from the store to Sweden?
Thanks

Shipping cost isn't high at all. Around 150kr. for something like a sweater, give or take depending on how much it weighs. (Rakuten will e-mail you the shipping cost before finalizing an order.)
The real problem is the VAT (inkomsttull or something) when ordering from outside the EU. Unless the product itself costs under 250kr, you're going to have to pay 20-25% VAT. Most stores on rakuten aren't willing to mark down your package so you'll want to buy through a proxy that will do so IF you want to avoid VAT charges. Whether it's worth it really depends on the price of the item.

With proxy you'll be paying for shipping twice + 8% fee that the proxy charges.
W/O you run the risk of paying an added 25% VAT charge.

Calculate that and you'll get a rough idea of which option is more reasonable.

For reference, I bought a champion sweat worth 160+140kr shipping. No vat charge. I ordered a RO tank yesterday worth 420kr, so I'll see how that plays out :smile:

Thanks for the response!
I just bought a pair of Orslow Ivy Fit Jeans, without any proxy..
I am willing to pay for them though, so to me it really doesnt matter, it will be cheaper than buying them from oipolloi anyways!
I asked them if they would be able to send them as a gift, but I guess that isnt possible then!

Good luck with your purchase (smiling)

Dunno exactly how rare these were but I never saw them at retail anywhere. One of the only really great things sliver ever did.
