How to deliver packages using Yuyu Mercari? Where can I buy the boxes?
Aside from delivering packages by the Post Office, two other options are Rakuraku Mercari and YuYu Mercari delivery service. Convenience stores also accepts deliveries for easier transactions and deliveries.
It’s very advantageous to use Rakuraku and Yuyu Mercari. You can even purchase their boxes and put your items to be delivered directly. Let’s find out more about their differences and which convenience store has them.
YuYu Mercari is supported by Japan Post for Mercari deliveries. Because of this, the shipping fee can be shouldered by the Mercari buyer or the seller. One of the advantage is that you can directly deliver the items on the mailbox as long as you have the proper box.
For packages that won’t fit on the mailbox, you can hand it out to the convenience store staff. Here are the sample boxes YuYu Mercari offers and their size chart.
YU PACKET / YU PACKET POST (ゆうパケット/ゆうパケットポスト)
The Yu Packet or Yu Packet Post is one of the shipping options to deliver packages on Mercari. Yu Packet is suitable for small items like kids’ clothes, small toys, CDs, albums, frames, and other thin small items.
The box size is 32.7cm (length) x 22.8cm (width) x 3cm (thickness).
And can weigh up to 2kg.
Yu Packet Post can be purchased at the Post Office, Lawson, Seria, and the Mercari store app.

The box size is 17cm (length) x 24cm (width) x 7cm (height)

YU PACK (ゆうパック)
Yu Pack is for medium – large size items. They also have a designated box for this but you can use your own and choose Yu Pack as your option of shipping. I personally choose this whenever I’m delivering packages to my clients who bought my anime figures especially if the figures cannot fit into YU PACKET PLUS or YUU PACKET.
*The shipping fee is based on the total length, width, thickness and weight of the package. You can select this as your shipping method then have it auto deduct to the item that you’re selling.
|Size (Weight)||Shipping Fee|
|Size 60 (up to 2kg)||700 yen|
|Size 80 (up to 5kg)||800 yen|
