If you’ve ever wanted to buy Yu Wo’s works to support her, there are a few places online where you can do that. One of the places is Kingstone, which is completely in Chinese. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to register and buy stuff from Kingstone, who do ship overseas and take credit card and paypal. I wrote this up for Arc, one of our lovely proofreaders here at PR, but this might also be helpful for others, yes? [Another place, if you don’t want to go through a Chinese site, is Yesasia, which has cheaper (and often free shipping), but the prices are raised to compensate for that. I am unsure what they carry.]
Please note, all novels and manhua are in CHINESE. There are currently no official English releases of Yu Wo’s works. Shipping is pricey but fast and not completely outrageous if you buy at least 4 volumes or so (so that your shipping isn’t double the price of what you buy).
1. Go to Kingstone’s website:
2. Register for an account.
3. Accept terms and conditions.
4. Enter registration information.
5. This page comes up. (You don’t have to do anything on this page)
6. Open your your email. You should have gotten an email that looks something like this. Click on link to confirm your email and account.
7. The site should now display something like this that tells you your registration has been completed!
8. Log in.
9. Enter your search terms or URL links to products you want to buy and start adding them to your cart!
10. This is what an individual product page looks like. Click on the link next to the red cart to go to your cart and check out.
11. Your cart.
12. On the same page, scroll to the bottom and choose overseas shipping. (if you live overseas!)
13. You’ll be asked to choose one of the following special privileges/discounts. You can choose not to use anything. Usually Kingstone gives new members some sort of coupon, and sometimes they give out random coupons for special events or holidays. Might as well use them. When you buy some books (new novels, etc), you get points that you can use, usually for your next purchase.
14. Scroll to the bottom to advance.
15. Fill out your info. Address, phone number, etc. When you choose a country, the site will calculate shipping. (Shipping displays as $0 before you choose a country).
16. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and choose a payment type.
17. You’ll be brought to a confirmation page.
18. Pay. (Since I’m not actually buying anything at this time, I was unable to go through with this step and do screencaps!)
