Of course! They're the ones to actually send a note about them. I was living in blissful ignorance until then. :P

Look out

Do you bid directly on Yahoo Japan auctions? If so... are you signed up for Yahoo wallet with a credit card issued here? YJP will NOT accept my new VISA (current one expires this month). I have no what idea to do except panic (9 years of bidding shot to hell).
Any help/advice greatly appreciated.

Ouch! I use a deputy and don't actually use Yahoo directly. I've never really looked at the user end of Yahoo, so I really have no idea what you might be able to do (if anything) to get around that. O_O; I might be able to help you read through things (if it helps), but like I said, I'm not familiar with that end of the site.

Would you believe I found Yahoo Japan Auctions English Beta?!!
So you would think this means they do want foreign bidders...
http://intl.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/docs/howtouse/

and yet NO info on what Yahoo Wallet will accept for credit cards. ; ___ ;

I just finished submitting a form to ask about wallet but I'm doubtful on getting a useful reply.

Hrm... this page deals with the credit cards acceptable by the system. Pretty typical on how to enter, no spaces, etc, but the worrisome part is the second warning it lists.

海外で発行した一部のクレジットカードは、ウォレットに登録ができない場合があります。ご了承ください。

Some foreign issued credit cards cannot be registered with the wallet.

The English beta says the following:

Accepted credit cards

Credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, JCB, Diners or below listed credit cards are accepted.
*Yahoo! JAPAN Payment uses original card authentication and evaluation system. So, your card may not be accepted to our system.
*We are sorry, but American Express is not accepted in Yahoo! JAPAN Payment.

VISA is what I have, all I ever had. If they've had no problems dinging my card for YEARS, why is it a problem NOW. That's what I don't get and have no answer for and is there no way to ask for help?

Where'd you find the English (off of what page)?

Thanks for the help!!!

I'm not sure, it could be something to do with the new visa cards now that they've been smart-chipped, or it could be one of those rare 'we don't like you' things. I remember my regular card was refused at a hotel one year when I was travelling in Japan even though it was accepted without trouble earlier (and afterwards as well).

Here's the link. It's half-way down the page under the Bids Won/Transaction Section.

*laughs* The kits must've sold out, so I'm safe now. ^^;; Now, is this a good thing or a bad thing? Hard to say. It's good because my wallet is safe (although it wasn't that expensive), but it's bad because they're gone-gone now. ^^;

Meep!

Look on the bright side: they'll probably get more in sometime soon.

Meep's not good enough.
