Jacques Durand Overseas Shopping Experience

|inline

Introduction#

I bought glasses from Jacques Durand at the online store of the well-known Japanese eyewear shop PonMegane. As for why I didn't use a purchasing agent, first, the bright black color is limited to Japan and there are few agents with stock; second, I think the agents are too expensive and I want to save some money. However, later I found that the cost of overseas shopping is almost the same as that of purchasing agents.

Placing an Order#

Filling in the Purchase Information#

To be honest, the ordering interface of PonMegane can be said to be very rudimentary, which makes people feel insecure. By filling in contact information (phone number, email), address, and the product model to be purchased, the order is generated in the background.

Second Confirmation#

Shortly after submitting the order, the customer service will check the inventory status and confirm the order again by email.

Payment#

Received Payment Email#

After the second confirmation of the order, the customer service will send another email with the previous order information for the customer to check, as well as a payment link.

In addition to PayPal, PonMegane also supports WeChat Pay and Alipay, which are very friendly to Chinese users.

Second Confirmation#

Shortly after the payment is completed, an email with the order number will be received. I won't include the screenshot here. However, the email did not inform me whether the payment was successful, so I sent an email to PonMegane with a screenshot of the order number, asking if they received the payment and the subsequent process. Each email exchange usually takes several hours.

Shipment#

In the screenshot above, PonMegane has explained the whole process in great detail. When placing the order, PAQUES-506 happened to be out of stock, so they had to purchase it from France, which meant waiting until the end of October. To make matters worse, when it was close to the end of October, I received another email stating that due to force majeure, the scheduled flight had to be postponed to the end of November. However, I received an email notifying the arrival of the goods on November 11th and received the logistics link on the same day.

Logistics#

The logistics used is international EMS, which took 13 days from shipment to receipt. The transportation time is not long, but it stayed in customs for several days.

Customs Duties#

The actual payment, including shipping, was about 2350, and an additional 430 yuan was paid at customs, making a total of 2800. The purchasing agent on a certain online platform was close to 3000, so in this regard, there is not much difference.

Conclusion#

2022.10.01 - 2022.11.24 was actually a very long journey.

The next steps are: optometry and lens selection.
