Four points to the seller like

A uniform 5% brokerage fee

Now it’s possible to put items up for exhibition with a brokerage rate cheaper than those of online auctions. The attendance fee in our auction is 3,000 yen per person. For any items that didn’t result in a finalizing bid, we will only collect the shipping fees from the exhibitor. Plus, we will waive the brokerage fee for sellers participating in the auction for the first time for up to ten items.

Where buyers gather from all around the world

Buyers come here not only from Japan, but also from the United States, China, as well as Europe. We provide a win-win for both buyers and sellers in an open auction environment, without getting caught up in old, restricting traditions.

Put items up for exhibit by just sending them in!

Our auction allows for consignment exhibition of items. Sellers need simply to let us the administration know how many items they plan to put up for bid, and then mailing those items to us. This process allows you to cut down the usual hassles of putting items for bid, and is a hit with our members. Our staff will assign tags to your items and then manage them through an exhibition item list. As a consignment fee, we will collect an amount starting from 100 yen per item. Please contact us requiring the consignment exhibition fee beforehand.

Proper protection of privacy

We will, under no circumstances, release the personal information of our buyers or sellers. Our company takes the utmost precautions to manage the safety of our customer’s personal information, and promises to work to keep this information protected.
