SHIPPING

OPTION #1: directly from the merchant (South Korea):

If the merchant ships overseas, the package will be shipped directly to your house via EMS.

HOW OFTEN?: Merchants usually ship international orders once per week.


OPTION #2: from MinarinShop (South Korea):

This option will only be used if the merchant does not ship overseas OR you do NOT want EMS directly from the merchant*

MinarinShop ships internationally ^^

  • +₩2,500~₩5,000 shipping fee to cover domestic shipping if your order is less than ~₩50,000 (depends on the store)

HOW OFTEN?: Packages will be shipped once a week.


OPTION #3: from MinarinShop (Canada): ***BATCH SHIPMENTS***

- For very small orders (ie: 1 item, tiny items like pencils, etc), I can have your items first shipped to Canada as part of a batch, and then calculate the shipping from Canada.

HOW OFTEN?: Batch shipments would be once a month (or more  - depending on interest) , so this is NOT recommended for orders you don’t want to wait a long time for!
This method is not guaranteed to be available – depends on interest.

NEXT BATCH: June  2012

I DO NOT PROVIDE SHIPPING QUOTES FOR OPTION #3.


PAYMENT

  • Accepted methods of payment: All forms of PayPal (+ fee), concealed cash, bank wire transfers (ideal for ₩400,000+ orders), money orders (including Western Union), and e-mail money transfers (Canadians only).
    • NO MEET-UPS, NO CHECKS.
  • Payment must be paid in full before I place the order.
    • NO PARTIAL PAYMENTS, NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Currency: Invoices are sent in CAD (Canadian dollars), but I am willing to accept USD, EUR, and other currencies. Please ask ^^
    • Korean shopping websites use KRW (Korean won) – To get the lowest rate, I set the currency exchange rate monthly when it is low (around 6% above the raw rate).
      What you get on Oanda.com or XE.com is NOT the real rate.
      Rate is subject to change.

ORDER GUIDELINES

Please follow these guidelines so I can enter your order quickly and accurately!!!

Your order should look like this:

1) ENGLISH DESCRIPTION / COLOR / SIZE / LINK TO ITEM

1) Pink fur jacket / Pink / o/s / http://
2) Cute shoes / Red / 245 / http://
etc.

English Description: You just need to BRIEFLY DESCRIBE THE ITEM. I don’t want the name in Korean or an Engrishy translated version.

Ex: Cute blouse, Stripey shirt, Jeans, Bear backpack, Sneakers, etc

Color: When specifying the colors, please include the name in ENGLISH using GOOGLE TRANSLATE.

If you have no color preference, enter ANY.

Size: Enter size. If free size, write o/s (one size).

Link to item: Please don’t give me the links to your TRANSLATED version. I need the ACTUAL link.

If the link doesn’t change when you click on an item, you need to do this:
Right-click on the item you want & select Open a new tab/window or copy the link
help links: 1 & 2

Ex: http://sechuna.com/shop/shopdetail.html?brandcode=003003000005

CHANGING YOUR ORDER

To make changes, e-mail me with the item # (in the left column of your order box on the Excel sheet), the name, and/or with your new changes.
When adding/replacing items, you should still follow the order format.
