All products available on Candysan are stored on our premises. Thus, we can send orders faster. We are a human-sized company and for us every customer is important. Therefore, we pay special attention to our packaging so that your items are effectively protected during transport. Moreover, we ship orders as quickly as possible so that our packages arrive at their destination in the shortest possible time.
For transportation, we use the Japan Post. We offer two shipping methods: Economy SAL (no tracking, no insurance) and D-Mail (no tracking, no insurance).
Packages returned by post
In the event a package is returned due to a mistake by Candysan (e.g. error in the address), we will reship the package without any charge. In cases where Candysan did not make a mistake, reshipping will be at the expense of the recipient, except in the case when Candysan insurance has been chosen.
The price of items
At the top of the web page, you can choose to display the prices in yen, U.S. dollars, or euros. Prices shown in U.S. Dollars and euros are calculated periodically based on yen exchange rates. For example, when the yen rises in value against the U.S. Dollar, the price of items will go up proportionally. Likewise, when the yen decreases, prices will also go down. Thus, the price of a single item may be different at each visit.
We ship all orders from Japan. The packages are sent promptly after receiving your payment.
All our packages are very well protected! We pay particular attention to packaging. Items are wrapped in bubble wrap or other similar means, and then secured in a solid cardboard box, so you can buy any item with confidence that it will not be damaged.
Economy SAL is the most economical airmail for small packages (less than 2 kg). If your order is over 2 kg, we will ship it in several packages. The package does not have tracking and is not insured, and delivery times can take up to 3 weeks.
+ International shipping in 1 to 3 weeks after sending (sometimes more)
+ Tracking: no
+ Insurance: no
Our shipping rates are the same as Japan Post rates. Packaging and handling are free. To reduce costs, we advise you to group your items in one order. We cannot group two distinct orders, and you will pay the postage for both.
Delay and Delivery issues
We prepare all orders as fast as possible; however, once the package has been sent, delivery time depends fully on the postal service and customs of your country, and we cannot take any subsequent action in the transportation and delivery process after shipping.
With Economy SAL, it is not possible to track your package once it leaves Candysan. Postal services usually deliver the package within 3 weeks, but it is not unusual to have some delay in delivery due to customs checks or problems arising at your local post office.
If your package still has not been delivered after 3 weeks, you should first check your Candysan account and make sure you entered a valid postal address. If you made a mistake in entering your address, we recommend that you contact your nearest post office for further information. On our side, we are unable to change your address once your package has been sent. If your address is valid, please make sure your package is not waiting for you at the post office, because it is not unusual to miss the delivery attempt notification if you were not available at the time of a delivery attempt. Make sure to notify your post office that your package comes from Japan and that no tracking number has been provided by the Japan Post Service.
If you did not receive your package after 4 weeks, it might have been returned to Japan. This happens when your local post office has difficulty trying to reach you or if you did not retrieve your package from the local post office in time. (Post offices usually keep a package for 2 or 3 weeks before they send it back.) In that case, your parcel might need 1 to 3 months from the original shipping date to return to our office in Japan. We will contact you at that time to discuss resending your package. Please note that you might have to pay the postage fee again, depending on the reason of return.
Although a rare occurrence, if your parcel got lost, stolen, or delivered to the wrong person, we will not be able to help you if you chose the uninsured Economy SAL for your purchase. However, if you chose EMS, you could always make an insurance claim to your nearest post office in order to use the insurance provided by the carrier. In that case, be sure to provide your tracking number.
– Less than 1% of Candysan packages are returned to Japan. Of 10 returned packages, 7 are returned due to being “unclaimed,” usually because the addressee did not find the delivery attempt notice left by the mail carrier. 2 are returned because of an invalid address, and 1 is returned for other reasons.
– Less than 0.1% of our packages are lost by the postal service. In that case, we cannot provide further information on the status of your package. In order to avoid delivery issues, we recommend adding as much information as possible in your shipping address, including phone number, door digital code, etc., especially when using the EMS.
