This guide is designed for anyone using BNB to go after SNKRS JP releases from abroad. In order to run for SNKRS Japan you will need JP proxies (datacenter or residential unbanned), JP shipping (reshipper if outside of JP), verified Nike+ accounts (location doesn't matter), and some patience.
Running for any release that requires a reshipper can be risky. The information provided in this guide is what we think is best and it is up to you to make your own judgment if you want to follow the information or not.
What time to start
SNKRS Japan normally releases shoes at 20:00 EST (8:00 PM). We recommend starting 15-30 minutes before the release.
What proxies work best
Proxies that geolocate to Japan will work best. It is harder to find working Japan datacenter proxies for Nike so you may want to consider residential in some instances.
What accounts are needed
As of writing Nike accounts made in the US, UK, CN, RU all work for SNKRS JP. Your account must be a verified Nike+ account.
How to set billing/shipping
Here's the part that gets everyone. If you don't have a residence in Japan you will need to use a reshipper. A reshipper acts as an intermediary letting you ship shoes to them and they will ship the shoes to wherever you are for a fee.
We don't recommend jigging reshipper address because it can lead to a lot of issues like missing packages or not being sent to the right owner.
Fields with (JP) need to be in Japanese characters.
- Put the first name that you used to register with reshipper.
- Put the last name that you used to register with reshipper.
- The address given to you by the reshipper.
- This part is important and will vary with each reshipper. In Address 2 you will want to put your account number with the reshipper so they can identify who the package belongs to.
- Put the zip code provided by the reshipper with the dash.
- Most reshippers will also provide you with a number you can use. Put that phone number without spaces.
- Refer to this guide which makes it easier to find the city in BNB and to use with the profiles spreadsheet.
- Town area is just Address 1 without the numbers at the end.
- Put a first name in Japanese characters. This name generator will save you time.
- Put a last name in Japanese character.
We recommend that billing match shipping for SNKRS Japan on limited release.
Credit cards for JP
SNKRS Japan is known for cancelling orders on limited releases that they think are from US. Usually these are orders with a US billing address. You can run a few tasks with US billing address and hope to not get cancelled.
The safest option is to use a VCC like Privacy.com which lets you put any address/zip code and put the address of your reshipper. This way Nike will not know that the order came from US.
