Important: Thanks for all the interest. We already have ~12 people who will be sharing the cost and from this point on the cost does not go much lower. I will be finalizing this offer tomorrow night (Wednesday, 18th February, 11:59 PM, PST) Hi everyone, I would like to get the strategy book as a collectable item for myself. I would assume that there might be others in the USA that wants this, too. It turns out that Amazon.jp charges a 1-time high shipping cost and then a fixed smaller shipping cost for each additional item. For example, if I order: 1 book, I pay 10.51$ 2 books, I pay 14.01$ 3 books, 1 pay 17.51$ for shipping. As you can see, there is a 3.5$ fixed fee for each book and 7$ initial one-time fee. So, here is my offer: I will wait for approximately a week to see if people are interested in sharing the shipping cost. I offer to buy all books and get them shipped to my home address at the end of the period after receiving the final price from each person. I am not asking for anything extra, I will just ask you to pay: 13.13$ (for the book) 7$ / <number of people that are interested> (shared initial shipping cost) 3.5$ (shipping cost per book) In other words, e.g., if there are a total of 7 people at the end, you expect to pay: 13.3$ + 1$ + 3.5$ = 17.8$ in total. Please note that this is the final amount I need to receive. Depending on the way we collect the payments, there might be additional fees for the transfer. For example, PayPal does not charge for bank account and PayPal credit transfers, however them are charging additional for credit card transfers (approximately 1$ for our approximate final cost) - Note that all prices are approximate since Amazon exchanges Yen into $, which I have no power to control If you join the offer so far, you are guaranteed to receive a working code for the new and lovely Yuria-chan! There is a second part of the offer, if you want to go an extra mile. If you live in USA and would like to also receive the physical book as collectible, I offer to ship that book after I receive the whole shipment myself. For this, I ask for the amount that I will be charged by USPS again, nothing more. I don't know what this value is, but I am sure that we can approximate (or I can ask for it). So, if you are willing to go a little further, you might get the physical book around ~20$ (or so) (basically a few bucks lower compared to if you would offer it from Amazon.jp yourself --- which would be 23.63$). If you are interested, please send a PM to me. If you have any questions (or see a problem with my logic), feel free to leave a comment. Thanks, Update: for payment, I accept the following Amazon.com gift card. PayPal money transfer. The amount I receive should be the final shared amount (not the amount you transfer if there are additional fees) PS: It turns out that there is strike on west coast. I live in west coast so there might be delays for receiving the books, just a heads up. PS 2: According to a few friends, in-US shipment should cost 3-5$ with priority shipping, depending on whether they consider the book as "media" or not. PS 3: Please note that the offers are separate. It is totally fine if you just want the code. I will keep the book myself and send you the code electronically. You won't need to pay for in-US shipment cost in this case, just the shared Amazon.com shipment cost. PS4: Please note that the current amount is an approximation. I might have missed some of the fees. I can assure you that I will NOT take a single penny extra; as I am just looking for to share the shipment cost, especially for the people who are interested in the physical book. PS5: I am evaluating options to receive payment from people. One strong candidate is PayPal. According to PayPal, there are no fees for sending or receiving money between friends (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/helpcenter/helphub/article/?solutionId=FAQ690&m=HTQ) if this is done through a bank account or as PayPal credits. For credit card transfers, they seem to charge a small account (around 1$ for the predicted amount).
