Heads up to fellow FPN members...Pilot Iroshizuku ink in 50ml bottles is selling for $15-18. USD in US Amazon store with free 2 day shipping for Prime Members. Contrast this with the usual circa $28. USD at most other online and brick & mortar stores in US. The ink is being directly shipped from Amazon US warehouses. No word of how long these discounted prices will be in effect.

Indeed.  I get mine from Japan and prices are always between $11 and $14.  Of course I have to factor in some shipping fees, but it still comes to considerably less than $28 per bottle.

Thats why you try to find some shops with free shipping. Often it's like buy 10000JPY of stuff. But a few extra bottles aren't that bad.

Just type Iroshizuku in "search" and the entire series comes up as a Prime item.

Good for you, EOC!

On the other hand, US members might be interested in Amazon US competitive pricing.

I often see these prices on ebay, but then shipping is ~$10 US which negates savings. Or to make it worthwhile, I'd have to buy lots of ink at once. Finally, I've heard that importing into the US, ink sometimes causes customs delays (though truth be told I've ordered some ink from Japan with no noticeable customs delay).  


I like to write or make short videos about my fountain pens such as the Conid Bulkfiller or Pilot Urushi 845 BB:

I was just able to purchase a bottle of Iroshizuku Murasaki Shikibu at Amazon using the Wikibuy add on for $12.99 with free shipping. :yikes:

Not shipping to Chile or Mexico (only US?). Sad thing...

Absolutely! If (when) I buy such inks I would go for 3 or 4 bottles at a time. The shipping goes up a bit but defrayed against the number of bottles it generally means I get each bottle for around $15 inclusive.  Then again I'm not in the US so I cannot take advantage of the free Amazon shipping. On the other hand I've also had no delays or problems with customs on ink coming from Japan.

And I've recently discovered the smile.amazon.com option whereby Amazon donates a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charity. Prices are the same as amazon.com so if you're shopping there anyway you might as well benefit your favorite charity.

I meant JP as in Japan. 

 

Also I always shop in Rakuten. Which is about 9 to 15 USD a bottle. And finding the sellers who has free shipping. 

 

Also watch out if ordering from Amazon. They do not know how to package ink bottles. I remembered my last 3 bottles of Konpeki (sorry I have an addiction) all leaked one even shattered.

I agree that Amazon shipping, on occasion, leaves a lot to be desired. I've not had any problems but I just may be lucky. If any problems do occur, Amazon is very good about replacing or refunding.
