How to use JR WEST

What's the difference between purchasing an exchange order/making a reservation online and purchasing a pass directly from a station?

Purchasing an exchange order overseas makes it possible to skip paying in Japanese yen when picking up your rail pass from designated station after arriving in Japan.
Purchasing a pass from a station directly is an alternative option if you were unable to purchase an exchange order overseas or if you plan to travel for a comparatively short time after arriving in Japan.
Online reservations allow you to reserve desired rail passes in advance and pay for them in Japanese yen at a JR-WEST ticket office after arriving in Japan.
