Angelic Pretty has launched their new japanese online shop. You can order from them internationally if you use Tenso.
The first step is to register with Tenso (https://www.tenso.com/en) if you don’t yet have an account. You will need to verify your identity with them, so it’s best to register well in advance.
The next step is to make a basic account with Angelic Pretty. This will let you get their newsletter. You can make this account even if you do not have a shipping address.
Note: The banners at the top of my screen captures are promising 500 free points (you get points when you shop at AP, and the points can be cashed in later for a discount.) if you sign up by April 18th at 18:00, Japan time. I am posting translated screen captures. Anything in dark red is a spot where I have corrected, added to or clarified the translation given by google translate. Please note that in some cases I have simply provided a general concept using generic terms, not a direct translation (for example, I’ve not bothered directly translating the back buttons). The differences between the actual text and the generic text should not impact your use of the site, and the generic terms are more common on English registration systems and thus are more familiar. Text in light blue are my recommendations and notes.
After you fill out this basic registration page, you will be sent a confirmation email with a link to the second half of registration, it is also shown on the final confirmation screen.
From there, you get asked your address and personal information. Much of the demographic information is optional, however, I elected to fill it out.
