Not if we placed the bid already. Please make sure to chose your maximum bid carefully.

I can’t find the delivery fee on the listing.

The fee will be adjusted to the actual amount when we send you the final invoice. For example if the actual fee is 560 JPY we will deduct 240 JPY on the final invoice.

When do I get my refund if I don’t win?
