Hobby Search Announces Changes in Cancellation Policy

Hobby Search Announces Changes in Cancellation PolicyLast Tuesday Japan based online Hobby retailer, Hobby Search, announced changes in their cancellation policy whenever you order from them. These changes will take effect next month on February 1st. You can read more about the changes on their official post, here.

Order cancellations are a bane for any retailer. Because it results in added inventory cost and money that could be spent acquiring a more sellable product is now left languishing on their storage shelf where there is no sure fire guarantee that the item can be resold. I guess the message here for us is that we be considerate to our online hobby retailer, lets not add anything "to cart" or "pre-ordering" without a definite intention of purchasing it. I heard that the online hobby retail industry in Japan is a cut-throat industry so every savings or income counts.

Established in 1999, Hobby Search is a Japan Based online hobby retailer specializing in Japanese toys, model kits and other hobby related merchandise that ships worldwide.

Japan based online hobby retailers are my source for feeding my hobby, mainly because I kinda live ways off where there is no hobby shop nearby. That's why its more practical for me to acquire my hobby stuff from them because of the distance and cost.
