You can pay them for that book and resell it here in Malaysia.

Just sharing my exp

Bought 2 books from and all received in perfect conditions with bubble wrap.

And its free delivery thus the problem surface which is the long duration of delivery. I had to wait 2 week for the books to arrive. But still I am satisfied.

Hi there, I've recently purchased 10 books in a single order on Book Depository and wondered how will my books be delivered. I've looked into several articles and the comment way back in 2012 and found that BookDepository used to send the books individually, but those info was ages ago, not sure if it's outdated. I'm living in a terrace house and I'm worried that if BD do really deliver all/some of my books in a huge box, it won't be able to fit into my mailbox and if left outside when nobody is home, it will get wet in the case of a light rain, let alone a heavy rain. Anybody has a similar experience and you wouldn't mine sharing to ease my worries?

I don't think that's possible. But I always wonder where will the lost books go to if it's not delivered.

I ordered 2 books from DB:
Order date: 9th April 2020

Haven't received tho.


BTW, has anyone successfully ordered and received very thick text book like 600+pages ? There's not a lot of choices, especially east MY, Kino is out of stock and my only resort is amazon cry.gif cry.gif cry.gif

Free Shipping = No tracking number whistling.gif

In Malaysia, if you don't have the tracking number, you can't track your parcel. Ask for refund if the item doesn't arrive in 2-3months.

cry.gif cry.gif we need to sign
petition for this, can't we enjoy
books like other countries? sad.gif

wondering how my books
are surviving in the dark
cold abyss.

it's funny, I know there's no
tracking number provided, at
least they need to know where
the books got sorted out.
It's a big packet labeled
"bookdepository". Can't they
just make a sorting dept solely
for BD?

My experience with Book Depository, initially lost a lot of books when I set my delivery address to my home. One set of books even got delivered to the wrong address and the person was kind enough to drop it off at my place. I suspect this was just Pos Malaysia being irresponsible.

After that experience (and multiple refunds) I switched to Kinokuniya.

A few years back I started using Book Depository again when one of my colleagues advised to set the delivery address to the office, which in his opinion would lessen the chances of the books going missing. Since then, I only had one order go missing out of around 20 plus deliveries, and the missing order was delivered successfully the second time around.
