About Mandarake's Auctions

Mandarake has three types of auction: Everyday Auction, Urban Mines and Big Web Auction.
As all items are checked and authorized by Mandarake, you can enjoy the auction without any worries.
All items are pre-owned unless stated. Please note that age-related degradation/deterioration will not be stated.

Everyday Auction
These auctions are held every day on the Mandarake Website.
Membership is required to place a bid, but participation is free of charge.
Everyday Auctions usually use an absentee bidding system, so you can bid whenever you want. Occaisionally a 'live bidding' system will be used, but you can still pre-bid on those items.

Urban Mines
Our bargain auction where everything starts from just 100 yen.
Items in this auction are not inspected by staff and are sold "as-is" with "No Claim, No Return" policy.
There might be some mint condition items available hidden within the mines. Please note that no questions about the items will be answered, and no requests for extra photographs will be taken. Please use the photograph in the auction to make a judgement and purchase at your discretion.
We do not sell empty boxes (unless that IS the item, in which case it will be written in the product description).
Urban Mines auctions use an absentee bidding system, so you can bid whenever you want.

Big Web Auction
This is our special auction that is held every 2 months (6 times a year), with all items being shown in our published catalogue, "Mandarake Zenbu".
Whereas the Everyday Auction and Urban Mines use a standard 'absentee bidding' system, the Big Web Auction uses a 'live bidding' system for more excitement.
Special registration and a participation fee ($5 US) is required to bid on items in this auction. However, if you purchase the Zenbu catalogue registration is free!
The price for the catalogue is 1000 yen (shipping not included) and you get to see a preview of the over 1000 items listed worth a total of over 200 million yen available.
Items won in the Big Web Auction also incur a 10% handling charge (winning bid x 10%), so please take note of this when deciding how much to bid. It is the Japan's largest manga and subculture catalog for collectors. It also includes articles about manga and toys. The listed items are from all Mandarake Stores in Japan.
