ZenPlus is an online shopping platform connecting Japan with the rest of the world. Japanese sellers list their items on ZenPlus to be purchased by customers living outside Japan. ZenPlus is optimized for cross-border trade and has plenty of shipping and payment methods to ensure a smooth shopping experience.
ZenPlus is operated by ZenMarket Inc., a Japanese company located in Osaka. You can check our corporate site for more details.
ZenPlus acts as a dedicated bridge between you and the 1,000+ stores that have already joined our platform. You don't have to worry about dealing with sellers directly. Of course, you can ask sellers questions, but all the communication is conducted on your behalf by our support team — no language barriers here!
After you place an order, we notify the seller. Once your order is ready, the seller will send the items to our warehouse. We will inspect the items and prepare them for international delivery. After shipping, we will provide you with a tracking number to monitor the parcel’s status as it makes its way to you.
Drop us a line using our contact form.
At the moment we accept bank debit cards, credit cards, and PayPal. We will be adding more payment methods within the coming year.
Signing up for an account grants you access to a wealth of helpful ZenPlus features, but for your convenience you don't need to do so for your first order.
Your order can be cancelled if it hasn't been shipped to you yet. However, a cancellation fee applies if the items have already been dispatched to our warehouse by the seller.
The shipping cost is shown in your cart before you place an order. It depends on the size and weight of your parcel, and the country you're sending to. This is the final cost — we will not charge you any additional fees.
We automatically choose a shipping method best suited for your order.
If you have a specific shipping method preference, feel free to check out our proxy shipping service ZenMarket.
No, we can't change the declared value.
No, we can't mark the item as a gift. We are obligated to mark all items as a merchandise.
Yes, all packages are trackable. The tracking link can be accessed from your account page after we've shipped your parcel.
It depends on your country and its customs regulations. Our service does not cover duties and import taxes — in general, if the customs office in your country applies charges to your package, you are required to pay them.
We ship to all countries.
We use more than 12 shipping methods (EMS, FedEx, DHL, UPS, SF Express, etc.) to ensure your parcel reaches you safe and sound.
There are two shipping stages when you buy from ZenPlus: domestic shipping from the seller to our Osaka warehouse, and international shipping from our warehouse to your door (after we've inspected the items and combined any separate store purchases into one parcel).
Domestic shipments generally reach our warehouse in a few days, but may in certain specific cases take a week or more. International shipments can take anywhere from several days to several weeks, depending on the delivery method used for the parcel. Please contact our support team from your Order page if you have any questions about the timing of your parcel.
Double-check your inbox’s junk mail folder and associated settings. The confirmation email may have been marked as spam by mistake.
Please also confirm that you entered your email address correctly (for example, no spelling errors) during registration. You might like to try signing up again or resending your account confirmation code if you’re unsure.
If none of the above suggestions help, please contact us.
Please try using another bank card or payment method. There is a possibility that your bank is blocking cross-border payments. Contact your bank and confirm that there are no restrictions.
If you are using a debit card, there might be not enough funds in your account. Similarly, if you are trying to pay by credit card, please verify that you are still within your monthly credit limits.
Payment errors are hard to troubleshoot, because we can't see the error details for security reasons. If you find at any time that your card was charged, but the payment did not go through on the ZenPlus side, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
It is the buyer’s responsibility to pay any duties charged. Our service does not cover customs duties and import taxes.
Packages can unfortunately get lost in transit. If the tracking information for your package has not been updated for more than a month, please contact us.
We're very sorry for the inconvenience caused. Please send us photos of the item and/or parcel (or a link to them) so that we can see the problem and conduct an investigation.
Please contact us and we will handle the returned package.
In principle, we don't accept refunds or returns. But all cases are unique, so please contact us for details.
