mandarake Frequently Asked Questions
Mandarake is similar to eBay in that it does have auctions in which users can bid on products; however, you predominantly outright purchase items from the site. Mandarake is also a chain with physical stores in Tokyo, Osaka, and Fukuoka, which eBay sellers might not.
Yes, Mandarake does sell second-hand goods; however, they are checked to be the highest quality possible for you.
There is an English version of the Mandarake Japan; however, it does not have the extensive catalogue of products that the Japan site has, so you may not find all of the items you are looking for. Instead, you can use 3rd party translators, for example, the Google Translate add-on for Chrome, that will translate your web pages for you in the browser.
Everyday Auction: This auction happens every day with no registration fee required; you only need to sign up for an account to participate.
Big Web Auction: This auction happens every two months and has an entrance fee of $5 for the product catalogue. Purchasing a catalogue is like buying a ticket to the auction to participate.
Live Auctions: These auctions are frequently happening, allowing everyone on the site to bid on the identical product simultaneously, just like in a real life auction. Like the everyday auction, you need to register in advance on the site to participate.
Mandarake accepts payment via PayPal, except for adult-only products, including all items related to the Hentai.
Depending on the size and weight of your package and where it is being shipped to, it could cost between 1,130 yen and 8,200 yen if shipped directly from the Mandarake store. This can be very expensive if you are getting items from different sellers as you will have to pay multiple shipping charges. Instead, you can take advantage of forward2me’s combine and repack or consolidation services to cut down on shipping costs of all of your items.
