Safe? Or a lie?

I find random people on YouTube mentioning this site, and I want my Ami CD's...
My brother won't look at it and review it because he's doing his work.

And my parents don't know crap about the internet apart from searching for stuff.

Has anyone actually bought from this site? Isit safe? I need an answer. ^^
Haha, sorry...
Please and thank you! :D

Most of the OST's I have are from them, so yeah, they're legit.

Ah, thank you, do you know how long it takes for them to ship? ^^
Not the shipping time it takes to get to the house, of course.

Yeah, ordered a few OST's from them in the past.
They're ok.

Well... I ordered stuff in bulk and always opted for express shipping that was costly ($22 IIRC), so I got in 2 days or so.

Don't forget UK residents get charged customs tax.

One time I ordered Kingdom hearts 2 Final Mix and they tried to add VAT on top of everything I ordered and ended up being forced to pay 20-30 on what I paid for.

Good point, hope it's not 20-30 Pounds though.. otherwise that would make them as bad as Canada Customs.

I'm used to instructing retailers to mark down items as gifts and undervalue them so I won't get charged. Most of the time, it works but sometime I end up paying nearly 70% of the item's value in customs. US shops like NCS know the issue too well and mark games down as $25 CD's.

I've had no problems with CDJapan.

British customs can be brutal.
Depends on what you're ordering.

Ordered a Used US PS2 from Gamestop once, the back end was something like £75-80 thrown in Tax for something which was 2nd hand so theorectically the tax would have been previously paid on the item you'd think.
Its pretty pathetic.

Brother also ordered a guitar and got hit for £90 in customs tax but he didn't mind so much as he saved 150 on the deal.

Its usually when you order in bulk and via special couriers that you tend to get hit for tax.

I've ordered via Ebay from the US and bought from canadian sites and just used standard Air Mail and not been taxed.

Im sure theres ways around being taxed like the "Gift" mark on packaging, but people rarely wanna do that.
