    ◇ Dispatch & Delivery

    Delivery Options and Rates

    Self pick-up is available at our retail stores

    Domestic Delivery
    You can enjoy free delivery if you spend $50 or more on a single order. We will charge a flat delivery fee of $8 if you spend less than $50. A re-shipping fee will be charged on any shipment that needs to be reshipped as a result of a customer providing an incorrect shipping address.

    In-stock Japanese items will be sent to your directly by air from our Fulfillment Center in Japan.  These in-stock items usually arrive at our U.S. domestic delivery services within 7-10 business days from the time of order.  Once your item(s) are ready for dispatch from the Fulfillment Center in Japan, you will be notified with a tracking number.  Please note that this tracking number will work once your item(s) is scanned at our U.S. domestic delivery service facility.

    International Delivery
    Delivery charges depend on the quantity of the items and the country of destination.

    Delivery fee for Canada and Mexico:
    $13.00 Fixed Processing Charge + $1.50 per item

    Delivery fee for other international countries:
    $18.00 Fixed Processing Charge + $5.50 per item

    Please note that we cannot split your order for any international orders.  The customer is responsible for any charges including customs, re-shipping or any extra fees due to country regulations. We may not be able to ship to some countries due to restrictions.

    Ordering Items with Different Availabilities
    Domestic Delivery
    When you order items with different availabilities, if your entire order is less than $50, we will group all items together in one shipment when they become available for a flat rate of $8. If your order is $50 and above, we will group all items together in one shipment when they become available and ship them for free. Should you need any of your orders to be delivered separately, whenever an item becomes available, please contact us via inquiry so that we can arrange for that.

    Gift-Wrapping Service
    Gift-wrapping is available at no extra charge. You can also choose to leave a personal message on the gift tag attached to your item.

    Change of Address
    When you are ready to check out, you can enter your shipping address if it is different from your billing address. If you wish to change your address after you completed checking out, please contact us immediately. Once your order has prepared for shipment or has shipped, we are unable to change the shipping address.

    An automated email will be sent to you when the order has been made successfully. If you cannot find an email from us, please contact us for assistance.


    Additional Orders
    All orders placed on BookWeb will be shipped from our logistics center. Because our system is automated, any additional order placed separately by email, phone, or on the Delivery Memo from BookWeb will be handled manually, in which case your credit card information may be required again when we contact you about the additional orders. Please note that these orders may be delivered separately from your original BookWeb order.

    Items not yet released can be pre-ordered. Your credit card will not be charged until the order is dispatched. If an order includes both currently-available and not-yet-available items, it may be held until all the items are available. See ‘Ordering Items with Different Availabilities’ under ‘Dispatch & Delivery’, for further details.
