  1. KBC news feature

    As a feature of the market event we were involved in at Iwataya, Fukuoka organized by handmade online mall, 'minne',

    the KBC news crew recently visited our home and studio to film us and our little 3D printer.

    and they featured us in their evening news program at 6.40pm Tokyo time on May 13, 2013.

    We are a little shy about showing this but we thought it might be interesting for some of you

    to see the environment we work in.

    Below are some of the screen shots we took of the news program on TV. 

     

    we were featured as a family!

    I was saying how online business is just right for us

    cos we could work on our creations and our sales while being at home and caring for our boys.

  2. PAYPAL and Credit Card payment options have resumed

    We encountered an unforseen problem with our PAYPAL payment options recently 

    and have been trying to resolve it for a while.

    This morning, we managed to get the system back to normal.

    So payments via PAYPAL or Credit Cards have now resumed.

    Thank you very much for your patience and we hope you will enjoy shopping at MONOCIRCUS.

     

    One problem that is still unresolved is that orders made via iphones and mobile phones

    sometimes encounter problems with credit card payments.

    We have been and are still trying to find out how to resolve this issue.

     

    Starting MONOCIRCUS has been a great learning curve for us.

    We started it from scratch, doing all the website designing and programming,

    maintaining the business and administrative side of it all on our own.

    We are always trying to find solutions to make the online store more user-friendly as well as look good!

  3. Paypal and Credit Card payment is temporarily unavailable

    Payment via PAYPAL and Credit Cards is temporarily unavailable at the moment.

    We greatly apologize for the inconvenience caused.

     

    For our local Japanese customers, payment by bank transfer works as is per usual.

    We are currently trying to resolve the problem and

    hopefully PAYPAL and Credit Card payments can resume within the next few days.

    We will keep you updated in our newsposts.

     

    Thank you as always for visiting MONOCIRCUS!
