VAMPADDICT Membership – IMPORTANT UPDATE! PLEASE READ!

Hey guys! I posted a tutorial on how you can join VAMPADDICT and if you are planning on using Tenso as your shipping service, in other words, if you’re planning on using Tenso to have your VAMPADDICT membership + VAMPS TIMES magazine sent to you, please read below. I forgot to mention this the other day and I apologize for that:

 

In order for Tenso to send your item to you, they require that you include your Tenso member number in the address line. This is so they will know the item belongs to you and can process shipping accordingly. See, Tenso has a huge warehouse where items are being sent there all time. Tenso employees check the member number on each package that arrives and emails the customer to whom the member number belongs to. The customer is informed that their item has arrived and is ready to be shipped to them upon payment.

*Tenso member number example.

 

I did not mention in the last tutorial that the Tenso member number needed to be included in the address, however, it’s a simple fix, so don’t worry!

 

Here is WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Log into your Tenso account: https://www.tenso.com/en/login/

 

 

2. COPY the information outlined in red in the image below. Be sure to copy the ENTIRE line. To do so, simply drag your mouse over the information and right-click “copy.” tenso 1

 

2. Open a new tab and go to: https://www.vampaddict.com/signin

 

3. Log in and click the button outlined in yellow in the image below:

2. Next, click on the button outlined in green in the image below:
* For my own privacy, my information has been blacked out.

3. Next, hightlight the information in the box containing your current address information (outlined in green in the image below – third white box up from the bottom) and right-click “PASTE.” You are copying and pasting your address from Tenso that includes your Tenso member number.

4. When you have pasted the information, your address should look like this:

* Box outlined in red is your Japanese address. The box outlined in green is your Tenso member number.

5. If it looks like the image above, please click on the red button on the lower right-hand side to SAVE your information.

NOTE: The dash “-” does need to be between the end of the address (the number “2” in the image above) and the beginning of the Tenso member number (the number “4” in the image above). So, the entire line should read EXACTLY: 東京都 足立区 千住曙町42-4 TS59197転送コム

 

And that’s it, you’re done!

CREATING A JAPANESE ADDRESS

To create a Japanese address to sign up for VAMPADDICT, do the following:

 

1. Create an account with Tenso to obtain a Japanese address: https://www.tenso.com/en/member_regist_pre/

*NOTE: Tenso is an overseas shipping service. It’s free to register and get an address, but you will be charged when you actually order something using Tenso. This means that when it comes time for your VAMPS TIMES magazine to be sent to you, it will be sent to the Tenso address you sign up with. Here are an approximation of Tenso’s fees based on what I have paid (the shipping is to Los Angeles, CA and the amounts are in USD):

Shipping of membership card: $17 USD
Shipping of VAMPS TIMES magazines: $17

 

2. When you register with Tenso, you are taken to this page (see below). The area in the pink shaded area is your Japanese address.
