PaletWeb and Paypal

My friend is ordering for the first time from PaletWeb to buy a game, but for sending the payment, all the do is give you the email for their paypal account. Do you really just have to send the money there? No forms or anything? I mean, how will they know who you are and what order you're paying for?

First Email:

"[Palet] Automatic mail for order check (XXXXXX)"

This is first email they send u. it contains the confirmation info for the item u bought.

Second Email:

"About your purchase items.{(Your Name Here)}(#XXXXX,)"

This email usually comes the next business day, 24 hours later or so. It asks for the shipping method and all that stuff. so u just add it together and paypal it to them. I ordered Kara no Shoujo from them 3 weeks before the release date and they shipped it the day it came out which was July 4th.

Third Email:

"Thanks for payment!!"

Contains the total u paypal'd to them and the address the item will be shipped to. If its a item in stock they'll ship it within 1 or 2 days. If the item is a pre-order item they ship it around the time it comes out.

Last Email:

"The item was shipped!!"

This is the last email they send u when the item is shipped. They'll tell u the tracking number if u used EMS.


O yea, and try not to cancel orders with them. i hear they ban u after the second cancellation of an order. So make sure u want the item before u place it. They dont give any warnings.


I've bought Scarlet Weather Rhapsody and Kara no Shoujo from them. They package it nicely by wrapping the item with bubble wrap then with newspaper and finally sticking it in a pretty tight fitting box. Don't blame them if customs decides to cut it open though...

Put down your order number during the payment. In one of the screens there's a field where you can leave a message to the person you're sending money to.

And if the name on your PayPal account and what they have on record is the same, they can match via that, too.

paypal has your name, address, phone number, etc attached to your email. When you pay the receiver is indicated upon accepting the money of your details. So I'm assuming that they will send it to your paypal address.

I've ordered from a number of these sites recently and I thought I should post my experiences with them.

Playasia-Very good, sales, tons of coupons out there and preorder bonuses.

NCSX-Good, they have some harder to find games, but apparently not many copies, of the last 4 games I bought from them 3 were the very last copy and the other sold out less then a week later. Maybe not good for preorder, in their daily update it seems like they hardly ever get enough preorder bonuses for everyone, but I always get them from Playasia. Also check Playasia before buying anything, they are usually much cheaper. Also I ordered a game from NCSX and found it on Playasia a couple days later for about $30 cheaper. I emailed NCSX so I could get an RMA number to return it so I could get it cheaper at Playasia and never received any response.

Sorry for multiple posts, but I'm posting from my PS3 and there's a character limit or something.

Yesasia-Ships in 7-14 days means it actually ships in 7-14 days, as opposed to some companies where ships in 7-14 days means "Ha, good luck". They won't let you cancel video game orders though, and I've never had to return anything, but their returns policy on the site makes it seem like if you got a game and it didn't work you still couldn't return it.

Himeyashop-Good service, shipping is kind of expensive though.

Japanvideogames-I ordered a game listed as being in stock from them. A couple of days later I got an email my order had shipped. A couple of days later I got another email that the game was out of stock and they'd have to try and track it down. Not cool. Normally if they told me they didn't have a game I'd just shrug it off, except they told me they'd already shipped it which was basically a lie. I ordered another game from them and they didn't have it in stock either, but they sent it about a week later.

Gamechoiceclub-Ordered a game from them listed as being in stock, it wasn't. Tried to switch to a different game, didn't have that one either. Got my money back.

Clannad, Shuffle and games like, have some questions about

I'm very ineterested in playing Clannad, Shuffle or any other games like (ero is ok) The only thing that stops me is that most of this games are Japanese and I know almost no japanese.
I know Clannad has translation in progress, but is their any other games that are already translated by fans or official, I really would like to play them.
Please pass what you know and how can I acquired the translation patches
I dont mind buying the game and getting ship to the US from Japan.
I would just like to have a english patch so that I may be able to play it.
or is their any games that I can buy here in the US already translated if so from where.

Thank You

edit.

PC games only Please

First, to the mods - I'm assuming its okay to point out translation patch sites because we have so many threads that contain pointer data to such mod/patches and it passes the Rule 1.1 check, eh? These aren't "warez" or "cracks", just game playing aids for the language-challenged.

Shuffle! *had* a translation project going (since 2005 off and on). Unfortunately, the primary member keeps vanishing for long periods (6 months plus at a time) and he has all the file work. Right now, the project appears to be in deep limbo. Visit the Patch thread in the Shuffle! subforum to find out more.

There's a site called Mirrormoon.org that provides english translations for some visual novels.

Best bet is to simply google the name of the series and "english patch"
(e.g. "Utawarerumono english patch")

You might check out the websites Peach Princess or J-List for games that are officially translated if you just want to get a notion of these "visual novels" (hard for me to call them games). Some of them are quite good if little known.

And yes, its strongly encouraged for you to buy the games. However, they are ridiculously expensive for their ancient technology compared to what you get in an American or European game software package (I'd really like to see a visual novel done in real modern RPG style). The positive side of using what is basically 1980s game tech is that almost any piece of junk computer runs them.

Just wondering, aside from Himeya, is there ANY other store that sells Clannad Full Voice that will ship internationally? I would just get it from Himeya, but the already high price+expensive shipping+custom taxes would bring the price up to almost $150, and I just don't have that kind of money. (Or, technically I do, but it's also ALL I have at the moment.)
