    Dumb question. As an American resident wanting to make an Amazon Japan order, do I NEED to use a proxy service?

    Tha's new. AJ used to require creating a new account. The only non-US amazon site I used was Germany, but was able to use my US log-in.

    Nope! The couple times I ordered from them, I just made an account and entered my address the normal way.

    Now, granted, there are absolutely items that don't ship to the States, but for both of the things I've ordered on there (MP Trailbreaker and the Game Gear Micro) I was able to order them direct from Amazon JP no problem.

    The Ratbat set is the cheaper one. I asked for the difference to be refunded and let them know I did actually order the Ratbat set, they just sent it at the wrong time and charged me wrong. Then they refunded the whole thing and let me keep the set they sent.

    Okay, I went to the support chat.

    I explained that I ordered the Shockwave set and that I was sent the Ratbat set. I told them I did order the Ratbat set but it came at the wrong time and that set was less expensive.

    It took a little explaining and I had to copy/paste the Ratbat set name so they could check it out.

    I only requested they refund the difference because I did receive an item I actually ordered.

    The rep offered to refund the full price of the Shockwave set and told me to keep the Ratbat set. I got the refund notice a little bit later.

    If you’re going to try this and hope to get lucky like I did, just be friendly to the rep. It could depend upon who you get, but I wasn’t confrontational, and the rep was nice, too.

    Good luck to those who are going to give this a try!

    But you KNOW it’s not the cheaper one. It’s intellectual dishonesty taking advantage of Amazon’s mistake.

    That’s not what I did. I received the Ratbat set AND I was given notice the Shockwave set shipped. I was charged the Shockwave price for Ratbat. I only asked them to refund the difference so I only paid for the set they actually sent me. The rep responded by refunding the whole thing and told me to keep it. It was much more than I asked for.

    Amazon was made aware of this mistake the day they opened up preorders. This is on them for not fixing the listings.

    But if you're ordering both sets, aren't you paying the same amount anyway? The only issue I see is that when the time comes, instead of Shockwave/Prime we're sent the Ratbat/Megs set again.

    I give up. I think you know what I’m talking about and are just playing dumb.

    I personally called them months ago and no one did anything. While I agree it’s on them, it’s still wrong when someone knowingly takes advantage of the situation to maximize their own profit.

    Eh… it was a moral thing, not a corporate thing.

    AGAIN. I was SENT a shipping notice for Shockwave. I was CHARGED the Shockwave price. I EXPECTED to get Shockwave. They sent Ratbat. I contacted support asked asked them to refund the difference in price because I was charged $75 for a $55 product. All I asked for was the $20 I was overcharged. That’s literally all there was to it. The rep told me she’d refund the whole thing and told to keep it. That’s IT.
