Have you thought of making money by promoting Japanese gadget gifts? I was looking for some unusual, trendy gift ideas, and I came across this Japanese online gift store – Japan Trend Shop. A quick Google search of the domain name japantrendshop.com and “scam” doesn’t come up with any negative results, so I guess I can presume this online store is genuine and safe to shop.
Japanese are always well known for their creativity and product designs. Some of these products are so wacky that you gotta see it to believe it. According to their FAQ, Japan Trend Shop ships worldwide with a global flat shipping rate. They usually ship the item within 1-3 working days after the payment is received. The parcel will then be in transit for 2-4 working days, so altogether it would take about 7 working days. Too bad, they don’t have a dropship program. However, they do have an affiliate program which pays up to 7% commission. Now let’s take a look at some of their interesting gadgets.
