    Default Rakuten

    I'm just wondering, if anyone has bought badminton stuff from this site, is it trustworthy?? Are the products original??

    I'm planning on buying badminton shoes from that website.

    Not sure if you are talking about the portal website Rauken from Japan (http://www.rakuten.co.jp/). If so this website is pretty much like eBay i.e. whether the badminton products are original or trustworthy really depends on the seller but not the website.

    Yes these are the same website. The Japanese one (http://www.rakuten.co.jp/) is Rakuten's main website but they also have English (http://global.rakuten.com/en/), Traditional Chinese (http://global.rakuten.com/zh-tw/), Simplified Chinese (http://global.rakuten.com/zh-cn/) and Korean (http://global.rakuten.com/ko/) websites.

    I have bought rackets from them a few times. Great prices and very fast shipping. It's like an asian version of Amazon.

    Yes, Rakuten is similar to Amazon. Not all shops are willing to ship internationally. Just use their english website and do the item search, the result that comes out are items from sellers who are willing to ship to other regions.

    I have bought stuff from Rakuten a couple of times. Most recent being 2 months ago from KPI. The seller/shop is trustworthy. If you are looking for Yonex stuff like JP racket, bags and shirts, I would highly recommend Rakuten.

    I was looking at a pair for the new SHB-65X from KPI, so buying from them is a good idea??
    I've never bought things from that website but I'm wondering about it

    Yep, they are reputable. I've bought rackets from them this year and everything went smoothly.

    rakuten's reliable. many have physical shops, and its quite a strict requirement before they qualify to be on rakuten

    You wouldn't go wrong if you buy from them. After you have placed your order and pay them by credit card, they will send you an email with the shipping cost about 2~3days later. You will then pay for the shipping cost to complete the whole transaction.

    The process is quite straight forward.

    Ah, Thanks for comments!

    Ah, I'm playing forward to purchasing the new SHB-65X
    Rackets from the website (on the UK) look cheaper as well as being a JP code
