Has anyone had experience with this yet?
I do not find the "note to seller" in the Paypal checkout process anymore, so I've cancelled it for now before the final step of placing the order. Or is the note to seller given after placement of the order?

I am sure it would be possible to sort this out after purchase but I don't think that's the way it should be.

I read about the removal of the "note to seller"-function at https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/...d/td-p/1156413

I had the same problem as you Teioh, in that Paypal has changed the UI so I couldn't find the note section. I just emailed Alex the situation and he still applied the discount after mentioning the promotion.

I got free EMS shipping for spending over $150

I can confirm that. I also emailed him about it and it wasn't a problem. You'll get your free shipping.

PayPal's been changing stuff... Like adding flat fees for the once 'free' family/friends payments. What cost me 2$ to send now costs me 5$ or more.

Anyway yeah alex is a good seller but he always handles the shipping discounts/refunds manually and after sending the payment, which is a bit annoying.

What's the email address? info@otaku.com?

I just ordered two soundtracks.

What information do I need to give Alex?

I'm aware of the sale, but I'm still surprised that Otaku.com doesn't offer any kind of combined shipping.

I had my refund too, by sending an email to Alex. Otaku.com is really a great place to find many rare soundtracks you won't find elsewhere.

btw, we are working on a new website which will offer combined shipping, should be ready early 2019. In the meantime, just email me at info@otaku.com and we can work out a deal on any shipping, if you order 2 or more items. ~ alex
