How about in provincial areas? Does anyone have experience in receiving their dolls in provinces? I'm scared I'll have to go over to the customs office to claim my package...


Oh! I wanted to try ordering some online, someday. Now I'm worried about this one as well. To they even ship a dolls in provinces? :v I hope they do. :v Cause I wanted to get Valerie a sibling. An older sibling. :v

(BTW: I already got a doll thought. Brought it from japan. I think the online shopping was better at buying the dolls than going to japan. I wasted to much yen in just buying (one doll) Valerie. She's a Limited Edition Volks SDC (42cm). Since they run out of stock of 60cm one since they sale it a few days ago in their event at their shop. :v so Val was the only one left. I was just glad I was able to get her. >_> Volks mostly run out of stock of males Bjd dolls than female thought.

(PS: I talked to some costumer their (their usual costumer) that often buy their dolls there. And said that Volks always had plenty of costumer daily. Most of their costumer brought or buy dolls at about more than 3 dolls each. Daily, some weekly and others monthly. If they are into the limited edition one. Their Levi limit edition already sold out when I got there thought. :v).

I have absolutely no doubt your doll will be shipped to you in the province. But like I said in the last reply, for EMS packages, they will most likely be sent to your local post office, but it'll be up to your local post office if they make you go to their office or just deliver it to you, and whether you will have to pay taxes.

Also, isn't the limited edition Levi BJD from IoS, not Volks? Unless you're talking about another Levi???

I don't know anyone who has, tho I do know a rep from that company has an account here. :)

You can also post a thread in the Help Me section since that'd attract more replies rather than just commenting here. xD

Oh, this is an awesome guide! :googly:
We already have a doll and despite the wait, it was not a hassle getting her. She was probably shipped via EMS since it was delivered to the address we specified without additional fees. :yes:
The whole ordering and paying process was done with the help of a couple of friends though. :mwahaha:

I am planning to buy another doll in the future so this will be a great help esp. since I am eyeing a different company for the second member of our crew. Now I know what challenges I might encounter by then.

Thank you so much!

Hi :hi: where does an 80cm doll category fall under? is it 1/2? it's too far for the size of 1/3 but a tiny bit smaller than 1/2. I'm confused :what:
