Online shopping in Japan without a credit or debit card

I've noticed in the conbini shops you can buy a pre paid Visa card up to 10,000¥. Can these be used on any websites like ASOS or iherb etc? Does anyone have experience of using them?

    Yes, you can use it on the website like iherb or any other website accept VISA. I use a pre-paid card call "V-Preca", almost available at any convenience store and their website is in English too. http://vpc.lifecard.co.jp/en/

    I didn't know about these, thanks for posting the question. It might come in handy someday, especially for people who come to visit long term.

    You can use them on any site that accepts japanese credit cards. Be aware though that many of the cards have a lifespan. I purchased a for my daughter without realizing this and received the email letting me know the time limit was approaching. There was still about 3000en left on the card, so I ended up quickly buying something on amazon so that we didn't waste the money.

    I also used to use prepaid card "V-Preca". I think this will solve your problem.

    In Japan, conbini pre-paid cards solve almost every problem you might have online. It's too amazing!

    Beside prepaid cards, there are plenty of online shopping pages that offer Cash On Delivery (COD) so you can pay when your good is delivered. They will charge you a small extra fee which around 300-500 yen. I have used lots of online fashion shopping pages and most of them have this option.

    Buy online and pay on delivery is an option.

    Please note that although these cards can be bought at conboni store, they have a limit of 7000 yen. For 10K, 20K and 30K you need to use online banking to purchase them.
