Pay Later (deferred payment option)
Which items are eligible for Pay Later?
All products with the blue Pay Later logo visible on the product page are eligible! Most pre-order items will have a Pay Later option as depicted below.
How do I pay for my Pay Later?
You can find your Pay Later Orders in "My Account" -> "Order history and details”. From here, you can choose to show only "pending" (unpaid) Pay-Laters, and check which ones are to be released this month, so you will never miss a deadline again!
Can I make my Pay Later in a currency other than Japanese Yen?
You will be able to see the equivalent price in your selected currency when placing your order. However, upon confirming your Pay Later order, the order will appear in Japanese Yen.
*** Nin-Nin-Game is a Japanese company operating in Japanese Yen and therefore all our items and shipping prices are indexed in Japanese Yen. Our customers will be required to pay exactly the same amount in Japanese Yen as the original price when they booked. ***
What happens if I do not pay my Pay Later order by the deadline?
If you forget to pay your Pay Later order, the system will automatically cancel your order and return the item back to stock. If you still wish to purchase the item, you can always remake your order normally, provided that it still is available. The Pay Later deadline will always be on the 14th of the item's original release date month.
*** If your order contains multiple items with different Pay Later deadlines, your entire order must be paid for by the deadline of the item which will be released first. If you do not pay on time, your entire order will be cancelled by our system. In any case, you will be notified with reminder emails before the deadline. ***
What happens if I cancel too many Pay Later Orders??
Accounts with a greater ratio of cancelled than paid Pay Later Orders will be suspended from this privilege.
What happens to the Pay Later Deadline if the manufacturer postpones the pre-order release date?
In most cases, the deadline will not change and we will still ask you to make the payment by the original deadline.
I paid my Pay Later but the order status has not changed, is this normal?
Please wait 1-2 business days for the payment to be verified, as our team performs manual checks on all payments received. If your Pay Later order status does not change to "Pre-order Payment Accepted” within a few days, please send us a ticket with your Payment ID and Pay Later order number.

- → The shipping cost paid initially is insufficient compared to the actual shipping cost after packing
- → The carriers have increased their prices or added additional costs (emergency costs, increased fuel, etc.)

Guarantee, Damaged/Lost Goods
Welcome to N2G's Received Damaged/Lost Goods Section. At Nin-Nin-Game, we ensure that all products that leave the warehouse are in new condition and protected sufficiently before we ship any item. As this topic is quite deep, please understand that each customer's circumstance will likely require follow up from our support team. This article aims to answer most common questions and also help with preparing your ticket so that we can help you better!
I received a damaged item. What should I do?
Within 7 days of you receiving your parcel, please follow the steps written below.
- First please take a video and/ or pictures clearly displaying the extent of the damage suffered to the parcel, the item box and the item itself depending on the case.
- Next, open a ticket with us on FreshDesk and attach the associated media along with the Order Reference, Shipping Invoice, and Delivery Slip. Our team will then reach out to you and offer you solutions appropriate to the extent of the issue and the information provided. This process can take a few days, but we will ensure that your concerns will be addressed as soon as we can.
Note: Please keep the received parcel and all contents that came with it. Including, packaging material (tape, bubble wrap, etc.), the label and the invoice. We also request that you carefully handle all items to further prevent any additional damage. In the case a return is requested, we will require that all of these items are included in your return parcel to us. If we receive an incomplete return, your order will not be eligible for compensation.
How is damage classified or defined on Nin-Nin-Game?
Our team will classify your case based on the following criteria.
Case A (Product Damage)
Our team will work with you to understand what sort of solution is appropriate for your product damage. You will be expected to send clear photos or videos to help illustrate the extent of the damage
Case B (Product Box Damage)
If the box was damaged during the delivery process, we will not authorize a return of the parcel, nor provide a refund or any form of compensation. All products classified as new, leaving the warehouse are checked to be free of damage before shipping and are carefully packed with adequate protection. Therefore, any damage that does occur to the product box during the shipment to the destination is outside of our control.
Example of Product Box Damage
Case C (Parcel Damage)
If your parcel arrived wet, destroyed or crushed, you will have to open a claim with the associated shipping carrier. When you first notice parcel damage on handoff, it will be essential to take a photo of the parcel in the presence of the delivery person. The more evidence you can provide, the higher the chance your claim will be approved.
Please understand that damage to the parcel or package does not automatically qualify as a reason for returning your order. Each case involving a damaged item will be evaluated individually, so please reach out to our customer service for assistance. If your return request is approved, you will be responsible for covering the cost of return shipping. We greatly appreciate your understanding in this matter.
**Please note that 18+ figures, once opened, cannot be exchanged due to hygiene reasons**
Case D (Missing Item)
In the case that an item in your order did not arrive as expected, please contact our Customer Support Team as soon as you can!
Note: If a package is taking an abnormally long time to arrive, please also consult with your customs office or courier as certain shipping methods can take much longer to arrive than expected.
In the tracking information it states that the package was returned back to the sender. What should I do?
Japan Post ->
If a package was flagged and returned back to us, that means that the post office or the customs deemed it as undeliverable, unclaimed, refused or prohibited. In the case that the carrier is Japan Post (EMS/Airmail/Surface), the parcel should be sent back to our warehouse.
We will contact you for reshipping costs in the scenario that you would like your order to be reshipped. In the case of a return package, if you want to contest the return/delivery of your parcel and receive compensation for the shipping fee, we can open an investigation with the Japan Post on your behalf.
However, we will need cooperation from your local postal carrier, either in the form of a document acknowledging the delivery process failure or a direct communication from your local postal carrier and Japan Post. Please note that if your local postal service refuses to cooperate, we will not be able to claim the shipping fee back.
Please understand that we can't accept Fedex or DHL shipments back to our warehouse. As the return shipping fee being excessively high, we will be forced to dispose the parcel instead. We are also unable to reroute your parcel to a different address or a country due to the exorbitant fees associated with such a service.
Please pick up your Fedex / DHL parcel in any case!
