Biblio.com is an excellent option if you are in the market for used, out-of-print or rare books. This company focuses entirely on books and does not sell other merchandise like games, music or movies. The inventory from this online bookstore is large, and the company features a 30-day return policy if you need to return your order.
The selection of new, used, rare, and collectible books is rather extensive. You can also purchase textbooks, including discount textbooks if you wish to save a little money.
Biblio offers an easy-to-use search bar on their home page where you can search for books by title or author. There is a more advanced search feature that lets you filter books based on their condition, publisher, binding, even specific attributes such as a dust jacket, a signed copy, or first edition.
Once you select a title, the product page allows you to read a synopsis, customer reviews and media reviews – that is, if they are available for the selected title. One of the inconsistencies with this online book site is that each listing varies greatly in the amount of information and detail available for each book.
Shipping also varies greatly depending on the seller and the book. Standard and expedited options are available on many products; unfortunately, free shipping is not available.
The company's return shipping policy varies by seller, but making returns on the site is generally easy. You have 30 days to return your items, and you may receive free return shipping. Generally, you can return the book for a refund if it was lost in transit, returned to the seller due to an incomplete or incorrect address, or was the wrong book or was damaged. If, however, you're returning your books because you changed your mind or ordered the wrong title, you'll need to contact the bookseller within seven days of the estimated delivery date, and you may have to pay return shipping.
Biblio provides a handful of customer support resources on its website. You can look through FAQs. You can also send an email inquiry if you have a more specific question or concern.
Biblio is ideal if you are looking for an older, used or rare book. The website has advanced search capabilities, and the return process is straightforward. Unfortunately, this company doesn't offer free shipping.
