You can sell CD's, vinyl records, T-shirts and other merch as well as digital downloads like MP3's, MP4 videos, and PDF's (i.e. sheet music, artwork, etc.) directly to Japanese consumers from your stand-alone Japanese web+mobile site and in the TopMusic.JP Music Guide.
Requirement: PayPal Account (see PayPal website for more info and to create an account)
All payments and order info go directly to your PayPal account. You ship the order directly to the customer in Japan. You keep 100% of sales. We just charge a small fee to set up each item in your Japanese online shop (we call this your Artist Shop). And if there is an issue with an order our staff will try to help you resolve it.
$20/physical item (i.e. CD, DVD, vinyl record, t-shirt, cap or other merch that can be easily/affordably mailed to Japan)
$20/digital album (Note: Individual tracks cannot be sold separately. Customer must purchase whole album. A single is considered an album.)
$20/digital video or PDF (max 1 MP4 or 1 PDF file)
Make a Sale and Get Paid 100% Immediately!
When a customer orders from your Artist Shop and successfully pays you via PayPal, you will receive an email from Top Music Japan with the order details showing the products ordered and the customer's shipping address. The PayPal Transaction ID and Order/Invoice ID are also included in the email so you can find the order/payment in your PayPal account.
Ship the Order to the Customer in Japan!
Then all you have to do is mail the products directly to the customer's address in Japan. During checkout, the customer is asked to enter their name and address in English so that you can read it. (And if they forgot to do so, just let us know the Order ID and we will translate it for you.)
If the products are digital, the customer can download the files immediately (through the Top Music Japan system) after payment confirmation.
Domo Arigato (Thank you)!
The customer automatically receives an email from Top Music Japan to confirm their order/payment and to thank them on your behalf so you don't have to do anything else. But since you also get the customer's email address, you can also send an email to personally thank the customer if you wish.
