How to buy used brand bags from Japan

Are you a fan of luxury handbags such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci or Chanel? But you want to save money by purchasing pre-owned items? Japan is a great place to find high-quality, gently-used designer bags at a fraction of the retail price. However, if you don't live in Japan, it can be difficult to purchase these items directly. This is where a proxy shopping service like ZenMarket comes in handy.

Proxy shopping, also known as personal shopping or deputy service, is a service that allows you to purchase items from Japan even if you don't live there. With a proxy shopping service, you can browse and buy items from Japanese sellers just as you would on any other online shopping platform, but the proxy shopping service will handle the payment and shipping process for you.

Using a proxy shopping service to buy used brand bags from Japan has several benefits. For one, it allows you to access a larger selection of used designer bags that may not be available in your local market.

It also gives you the opportunity to purchase used brand bags at lower prices, as they may be more affordable in Japan compared to your home country. Finally, a proxy shopping service can take care of any language barriers or cultural differences that may arise during the purchasing process.



Things to keep in mind when using ZenMarket

  • Be aware of any potential customs fees or duties that may be incurred when the used brand bag is shipped to you
  • Consider the length of time it may take for the used brand bag to be shipped to you
  • You can get an estimate of shipping fees and duration with our handy shipping fee estimator


Here are a few reasons to choose ZenMarket to buy luxury handbags from Japan.

Step 1 - Find the bag you want

It's time to start looking for the used brand bag you want to purchase. There are many different places to find gently-used designer bags in Japan, including online marketplaces like Rakuten and Rakuma, and physical stores like Book Off and Mandarake.



When searching for the item you want, be sure to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Use specific keywords: If you're looking for a specific brand or model of bag, be sure to include those keywords in your search. This will help narrow down the results and make it easier to find the item you want. Keywords in Japanese may often return better results.

  • Check the condition of the item: When purchasing a used item, it's important to pay attention to the condition of the bag. Look for items that are listed as "like new" or "excellent" condition, as these are more likely to be in good shape.

  • Purchase from a trusted seller: If you're purchasing from an online marketplace, be sure to check the seller's ratings and reviews before making a purchase. This can help ensure you're getting a high-quality item from a reliable seller.

Browse the selection of used brand bags available from Japanese sellers by clicking on the platform you want to search (Rakuma, Y! Auctions, Amazon Japan and more) or simply enter the link of any Japanese online shop into our search bar! You can find a wide range of used brand bags to choose from, including popular brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Hermès. Of course, you can also ask our customer service for help!
