I'm currently trying to find my way around the Chinese site along with people from TZ who were able to place their orders.
If I can manage to pull this off, we can use this to help other people who would like to order from there.

Hey I live in the US. I just ordered an iD L on Amazon on August 18th from seller Tokyo Japan Shop. It should arrive sometime this week or the next week or so. I am anticipated to see if it will be in English! Also I have a question. I forgot who it was. But someone stated that eBay was the only place left to get an iD L. But I just ordered one from Amazon !? Why didn't they mention Amazon?

As you may have observed from the discussion in the previous posts, the site where these English iD Ls are available are in Chinese.

To order from this site: http://item.taobao.c...6_3k1_786103316

You need to first sign up~ Just like ebay or any other site, you gotta make an account. You can make one here: http://member1.taoba..._info=&ex_sign=

It goes:

Account Name:
Password (underneath it will tell you if it's weak or strong)
Confirm Password
Verification Code (the image that shows up, enter it in... you might have to click the box to write it before the image pops up)

Hit the Yellow button and the next page is simply your email address... Put that in and click the button... Then check your junk mail... it might take a couple of minutes, so give it time. Then click the link to confirm your account, and there you go~

I dunno, I could give more instructions on how to actually purchase it... but, it's not too hard to figure out if you have Google Chrome translate it for you... :T Just remember that you might have to contact the seller so you can pay for the additional shipping (since the default shipping you can choose from seem to ship locally)

I also just noticed.... that that seller is now selling the White tama... and he has 156 tamas in stock (before, it was under 10)... Glad that he got more~ :D

I was able to make an account, but it gives me $30 shipping for overseas and there's no other option.

That's weird. -_-

68+185 Yuan = approx CAD$ 86 :(

The only payment method I've seen so far is AliPay (a Chinese PayPal-like equivalent), but I think there would be at least MC/VISA support.
I'm still finding my way around the site.

I only paid $68 CAN each tama... I dunno... but then again, shipping was only 145 yuan... And yes, they accept Mastercard and other creditcards. When you pay for it, it gives you all the AliPay methods, but there are other tabs you can click for various ways to pay... I think you can also pay using Paypal, but don't quote me on that. I used Mastercard to pay.

Wow... I tried to kind of purchase another to see the shipping... I wonder why the shipping is so high~! Or maybe the guy I ordered from was nicer or something.... Because I accidentally paid for shipping as if I lived in China... so he contacted me asking me for more, since I live in Canada.

How did you set your address? It doesn't let you select a country, just 'Overseas'. And seeing from the screenshot I got above, I'll be charged 185 yuan instead of 145. Is yours from a different seller?

When I first entered in my info, it asked for my address, and the only option for Country, city, etc, was to select overseas. I kept trying to write my full address including my city and province, but it kept denying it. So I just did what was allowed and continued along. Then, when it came to payment, and I entered my Mastercard and everything, it asked again for address, and this time I was able to select Country, city, province... And then it was good.

Afterwards, I was still concerned whether they would get my address right, so I kept trying to contact the seller, when I noticed the IM service they have on the site... The seller was already trying to talk to me. He was asking me what Country I was from, and I gave him my full address again, just in case... then we settled the shipping, which he only asked for an additional 130yuan (because I accidentally only paid 15yuan).... Anyways... it sounds a bit confusing... believe me, I was confused... Hahaha~

Something odd I noticed in the video....
It seems that everything is in English, but when they go to the Tama Depa and look at the vacuum and things, it's in English.
However, in the inventory, the vacuum and mop are in Japanese.
Could it be possible that it was transferred over via a Japanese iD L and keep it's Japanese name, or could be part of the programming?

According to the video uploader, the items in Japanese labels were transferred via IR from a Japanese iD L, hence the Japanese labels.

I showed my iD L to my sister today, and she just loves it~ She told me that if it was in English, she'd snatch it and run away with it... I didn't tell her that I bought two English ones for us, nor did I mention anything about there being an English version... 1. Because I really want to surprise her~ and 2. Just in case, for some reason, it's the original Japanese one, at least I didn't get her hopes up. But I'm pretty sure these are the english ones, and I really can't wait to receive them and surprise her with one~ :D

@superdonut

When you were ordering it and it asked you for your phone number, what did you do? Mine keeps saying I need an extension number and I have no idea what that is. For example I put: 123-456-7890 123 is the area code,and 456-7890 is the 10 digit number.

I just purchased my White English Tamagotchi iD L (or iDLE as I like to refer to it as). :D

Including shipping and commission fees and such, it's going to cost me a total of about $65 AUD, which really isn't all that bad; in fact it's cheaper than what I purchased my Japanese iD L for. Judging by the time indication that I've been given, it should be here sometime next month. I'm hoping for early September, but I have a feeling that it's going to be closer to Mid/Late September.

I'm really excited! When it arrives, I plan to take a bunch of photos and record some videos, as well as doing some comparisons between the English and Japanese iD L releases and conducting various connection experiments. I also plan to log my progress over on Tama-Zone. Looking forward to when this gem arrives! :)
