Poor experience

published

From the amateurish service at the counter, including incorrect advice that some books were digital and not physical, to absolute confusion around the seemingly simple task of knowing what's in stock, resulting in a 1/2hr wait to be told they didn't actually have three items I had paid for, to disorganised delivery, with mix ups over what was being mailed out, it's confusing, slow and easily the worst text book experience of my life. The only positive is friendliness and willingness to help, but it seems the ability to efficiently execute is lacking.

Free shipping\postage..

published

Sole suppliers of educational supplies to over 100 plus schools!!! W O W.. that's a monopoly this family owned business is got going there.
Strike up a deal with Auspost..get the free postage going on online orders..theres free postage on pretty much any & everything online these days be it from Hong Kong, China or the US too or is it because they need the business and you lot know that we've got to get it from Campion and have no choice whether we like it or not..willing to pay postage or not.
Do your teeny weeny bit in educating the kids of tomorrow's Australia. I'm sure your coffers are heartily replenished & abundantly overflowing by now.
Give it a thot people at the helm.

dumb founded how they operate

published

This so supposed to be an educational facility, however, they seem to need education on how to serve customers.
We bought a digital package of high school books for my nephew, days on we received no communication what so ever.
School is continuing as usual, yet my nephew is attending classes with out books or even instructions on how he can access the books.
This is really shameful. I don't know why this company/website have been given the priority and permission to sell books to students when.they are doing more harm than good.
This needs to be revisited and of this continues, we will have to go to 2 treasury place or 55 st Andrews and make a formal complaint.

Not good, wouldn’t answer their phone. Had to leave a message, took 2 days to reply.

published

Needed information regarding trying to order online. No one could answer the phones to help me out with my dilemma and questions regarding ordering online. Wasn’t truly happy and was very frustrating.

Just O.K.

I made 2 orders, i was delivered without any problems. The other required a lot of follow up and chasing, including promises to get back to me that were never kept.

Cost to deliver

published

I was forced to purchase Learie's art supplies from Campion. Having missed the 1st round (it was a later elective) I placed the order last week.
The cost to handle and deliver 5 are items was absolutely outraging.

Hi Hagit Tobias, thank you for posting a review, we appreciate all feedback. We are sorry that your processing and delivery cost was higher than expected. We will take this feedback into consideration when looking to make future improvements.

Good at selling, but no info on how to activate digital products.

published

Champion is very good at selling their digital products. However, I suggest to include explanation of what happens after: how the digital product is registered, how account is created, what is used as activation code, where the customer is to receive the activation code from, who administers activation. I had to spend hours on the phone with Campion and Oxford just to find out that it is the school who is administering activation. Two digital products which I have purchased 2 months ago still not activated.

Rethink your packaging

published

We ordered a couple of items from school booklist for home delivery, having been unable to source them second hand / elsewhere. Two small books and a ruler.
This was sent in a box big enough for a computer monitor replete with 9 x plastic air protectors (noting nothing breakable in order). A tough bag would have sufficed and been much more environmentally friendly (& one would imagine cost effective too).
Please update your processes to be more in line with acceptable community standards.

Ridiculously Expensive

published

For parents, especially as a single mum I find education books are ridiculously expensive. In particular the prices of the e-books are outrageous! For 2 children at a public school it cost me in excess of $1,100 :(

Too much expensive packaging

published

I only ordered a calculator and ebooks - so online codes only. My calculator cost $15 postage and arrived in a large, textbook size box filled with plastic, padding air bags. Not good value or environmentally friendly.

Not happy

published

I order 2 books only the workbook was received
My daughter needs her text book, she has an assessment due and no text book.
You know as a company kids go back to school so you should have all text books and workbooks available

Book was damaged due to poor packaging.

published

Although the order was delivered fairly promptly. The books were sent in a paper bag and upon opening the soft cover book as damaged and bent. Please make sure hard cardboard is used in future as to prevent $70 books from being damaged.

Rang ahead, drove 40 mins to Willetton store waited more than 90 mins in a queue to be told it was not in stock.

published

10/10 don’t recommend. Will use Learning pod and office works in future.
Seperate postage costs for items going to the same address isn’t user friendly either. Unrealistic to pay before Christmas too.

review

Went to Campion to get school books from two different schools and only 1 book was in stock from the whole list , had to back order .
When the order arrived in my husband waited 40 mins outside in the hot sun in a line to collect. Once finally at the desk the lady said she couldn't find one of the books and that he might have to come back another time . My husband showed her that he received the emails that all the books had arrived and in stock and so asked to look again. She eventually found it.

Should advise if low or not in stock items before I buy

published

The list did not identify low stock or no items in stock at time of selection and I went on to order and check out. During the dispatch notice period (a few days later) an email arrived to say a book is 1 month away. This is very disappointing and I would not have purchased it with the book arriving 1 month into the term.

Very disappointing

published

Luckily I was able to obtain the one book needed but the lady waiting near me missed out At this time of the year stock should be plentiful The queue was more that half an hour wait The heat and humidity unbearable with the number of people waiting I shop in December always but needed to come back for one text NEVER AGAIN!
The book ended up having a manufacturer’s defect!

Great personal service, but online click and collect would be better

published

The staff are fantastic and really helpful in-store, the online service for delivery is great, but if you don't have time to wait for delivery, there is no option to order online and go to store to collect. If this option was available it will be great for busy parents as it avoids queuing up in-store.

Review your shipping prices.

published

Bought a heavy book and a notepad.
Shipping cost is not by weight, but by item. So about $6 per item. $12 shipping all together. That was one expensive notepad.
Oh, and they will charge you if u want to pick up.

I really wish there was an alternative to buy schoolbooks from.

Primitive Customer Service systems

published

My shipment was partially shipped and I had no prior notification that this would be happening. Their systems are so primitive that I was not told when to expect items on backorder, I was not notified when items were then going to be subsequently shipped and when they were shipped no notification that they were being sent. Definitely not the cheapest in town - so I would recommend shopping around then using them just because they have successfully tied up the schools to order through them.
