Tutorial of ordering my fanbook outside Taiwan

Even if you're not living in Taiwan, now you can still order my fanbooks & accessories online! In LAZYYY store!

Actually my books are already available for worldwide shipping through online stores such as LAZYYY and Seemoon, but these stores are founded in Taiwan and most pages are written in Traditional Chinese. I have been asked "how can I buy your books if I don't live in Asia?" for years, and mostly my answer is to write a request letter to service staff of the stores I consigned. Recently the staff of LAZYYY told me they're welcoming overseas orders. Now they accepted credit card as payment method. And most Q&A are written in Chinese/ English / Japanese now. LAZYYY store now seems almost English-friendly.

LAZYYY is a doujin shop and also an online shopping platform, same as most of my consigned shops listed in my website: Home-->Doujin Shop & Print Store-->#SHIPPING INFO#. If you're familiar with some famous Japanese doujin shops, like K-books or Toranoana(とらのあな), they are also the same kind of shops, mostly dedicating on selling fanbooks(doujinshi).

Please notice that those artists create and publish merchandise by themselves. These shops are only consigned for helping artists selling merchandise. They are not responsible for merchandise publishing, quality and content.

I made a small testing, pretending I'm incapable of reading Chinese and try to place an order. There are still some Chinese only pages which may confuse many customers. Overall, the process is easy and convenient. If you have a credit card, just apply for a LAZYYY membership account and you're ready to go.

If you're only interested in buying my merchandise, you can check this link:
OFF RECORD on LAZYYY shopping platform
If the merchandise shows red texts "缺貨", it means the merchandise is sold out. It could be available again once it's been replenished.
You can check the details of all my merchandise in my website:
OFF RECORD - SHOP

If the merchandise is not shown in those two pages, it means it won't be replenished in shops again.

If you can only pay through Paypal, Seemoon is the recommended platform. Please check another tutorial here: Tutorial of purchase my fanbooks outside Taiwan (PayPal)
