Buying BL/yaoi merchandise directly from Japan

Hey /cm/, can we start a discussion about purchasing BL manga and doujinshi from Japan?
I have used eBay for direct purchases in the past, as well as Noppin as a shopping service for Yahoo Auctions Japan. Noppin can get pretty expensive, and though YAJ has mostly low prices for manga and doujinshi, the domestic shipping and service fees add at least 1000 yen to each item. I buy figures from Mandarake occasionally, so I decided to check out their doujinshi selection. It's expansive overall, but can be limited when you're looking for a specific circle. Also Mandarake does not offer manga.
Does anyone have experience with other shopping services for Yahoo Auctions? Or Amazon Japan? Are there sites not mentioned that ship direct to the US, like Mandarake?
