For doujinshi lovers, Booth is one of the most popular online applications to purchase from. Hundreds of Japanese artists use Booth as their shop of choice to sell their creations, with many of them choosing to sell exclusively through this website.
Owned by Pixiv, Booth is an e-commerce website for where many artists choose to sell their works due to Pixiv being the top website in Japan for artists. Anyone is able to create their own online store on here for free and many doujin creators do so, because Booth also handles payment, storing merchandise, and shipping for the artist.
Pixiv’s Booth is becoming one of the top online stores that doujin creators use as a way to sell because of its convenience. When the creator registers, they will be able to sell both digital and physical goods through it. There is even the pixivFACTORY option where the creator can even manufacture items through pixiv like phone cases, totes, mugs, t-shirts, and many more.
Many popular doujin creators use Booth and will open up preorders for their new works through that. This is one way to guarantee that you will get your favorite creator’s works before they sell out and then needing to play the waiting game on the aftermarket if it ever shows up!
Most Japanese creators do not ship abroad. If their work is manufactured or stored in pixiv, pixiv does not ship abroad either. To ensure that you get what you want, it is best to use a proxy buying service, like White Rabbit Express.
