This was our first purchase from Better World Books, which is located in Mishawaka, Indiana, and with an item shipped by Bestway Parcel, a company I’d never heard of. We purchased a textbook listed as “Used – Very Good” from them, on Amazon, and it is in very good condition. I had been watching listings for that textbook on Amazon for a long time and was extremely happy, when Better World Books listed the textbook, with a rock bottom price, far below the prices of the other Amazon Marketplace Sellers who had that textbook listed.
As I write this post, Better World Books has received 9408 feedback’s on Amazon, during the past 30 days. Of those, 97% are Positive feedbacks. For a company that ships thousands of used books each weekday, that seems to be a phenomenal percentage of satisfied customers. The company is a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau) which is “a plus” for me, whenever I consider purchasing from a company, and they have an “A+” BBB rating at the time I am writing this post.
Based on this one purchase, I will be happy to purchase textbooks and other books from Better World Books, if they have them in the condition I want and at a good price.
Bestway Parcel apparently operates a service similar to DHL Global Mail, UPS Mail Innovations and FedEx SmartPost. They take the item near to the destination post office and then turn it over to USPS for delivery to the customer. With this shipment, I found their tracking not as good as that of USPS or the companies I listed, but they delivered the item to our Receiver/Forwarder in Miami, as the other companies do with other items we purchase. We paid $3.99 to Amazon for Standard Shipping to Miami.
