i already procure 50 title of internationional edition from flipkart. according to me their services are much better than the other book portal. draw back is that  for other product they provide cash on delivery facility but not for books.

How about books they need advance payment ? Is it true, as some one has bought it through payment on delivery only.

Please comment

Dear Dr. Tiwari,

Flipkart is a reliable store. Replacement policy in case of damaged goods can be read from their website. For personal use books can be ordered and they get delivered very easily. They provide valid invoices.

The only thing which can create an issue while ordering books for library is that they take advance payments in case of books, so in case online payment handelling rights are with the librarian it can be done, but in many cases it is not so,  therefore for payments one has to depend upon accounts section and there too issues rise for online transactions, which are generally not possible. Majority payments from accounts sections are made through multi-city cheques. therefore shpping from an online store can be a hedious task in libraries where online transactions are not permissible. Moreover this will give an extra burden to the library for maintainance of records for such purchases.

In case these issues are not a problem for the library staff then online stores are really good options for procurement of books.

 

Hope this was helpful,

i dont have good experience about amazone.com  

Flipkart service is a better one. There price is also a discounted price. Normally send within the time period mentioned over  net. Most of books which are not available to book vendor, we find it is available there. Our library vendors also purchase from flipkart to quick delivery of foreign books also. It is a very good service.

I will also suggest you to go forward the service of flipkart is good. I have also purchased books from there and yesterday ordered one book from flipkart. They provide replacement facility if purchased item is damaged or like that.

Regards

Mahesh

Do they provide bills for the payment / record purposes.

If any misprint or missing pages have they ever changed books too even after paying them.

Please comment.

go ahead

Full marks to Flipcart's store and it's reliable delivery.
