Cheap Uni Textbooka

5 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 12, 2018

Ordered two uni textbooks on the 5tb of Feb 2018 and received them in perfect condition today the 8th of Feb 2018. I asked customer service a question and they answered my query very promptly and efficiently. Definitely will be ordering my uni textbooks from zookal again.

So quick

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jan 05, 2018

I typically use Jekkle for textbook purchases, but after noticing Zookal was just as cheap and had textbooks Jekkle hadn't put up/received for sale yet, I decided to research it a little. After seeing that the worst review I could find was only saying that it can take up to three weeks to deliver (which is pretty normal where I live) and knowing I was planning to get my textbooks just after Christmas despite not starting back up at university until mid February, I decided to give it a try. Being around Christmas time, I wasn't expecting the books until at least mid January, but it only took them a week to process and I received the books the next day despite not paying for express delivery. While I'm sure part of that was due to how early I ordered, I'm still pleasantly shocked at just how quick they arrived. Definitely will be using the site again.

Couldn't ask for more!

The university bookshop was out of stock of my textbook and was going to take a week to get it in. When I looked online after a recommendation by a friend I found the same textbook on Zookal and it was significantly cheaper than the uni book shop was selling it for. I ordered it around 4-5pm and it came the next day, amazing service will definitely use again and recommend in future!

I was told about this website from fellow university students and found the textbooks on here to be cheaper than the on campus bookshop. I ordered online and then received an email the next day saying my order had already been dispatched and received it shortly after - was very satisfied and will be using it again for the following semesters.

Cheapest and Fastest!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 08, 2017

Zookal is the cheapest service available for me to purchase textbooks. I have made several purchases through Zookal and I am always impressed with the delivery time! I ran into trouble with another textbook service and waited two weeks to be told that my textbooks would not be available for shipping for another two weeks! I immediately ordered through Zookal and all four textbooks arrived the next day! I highly recommend Zookal for university students as I have found that they consistently have the lowest price and fastest shipping.

Might be cheaper but terrible service, late, and lies about delivery dates

1 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 12, 2017

I ordered a text book for university and noticed that Zookal had the best price with a delivery date of 3 to 5 business days. Immediately after I paid online, get a message saying that delivery is delayed by up to 7 business days. 10 business days later when I called, I was told that they have no estimated time and it could take up to 21 business days! Even the refund took 5 business days to hit my account. I'd rather pay a little more and know what I'm getting and when I'm really getting it.

Excellent service and so so cheap!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 13, 2017

I ordered my textbook late on Thursday night because I found out that the library wouldn't let me renew it. I was in a panic and Zookal had the cheapest price that I could find online ANYWHERE (being a uni student, this is crazy important). I ordered it, and by Friday morning, I got a message saying it had been shipped. Already?! I was shocked, I wish my online clothes shopping was shipped that quickly! I received it first thing Monday morning, and it's in perfect condition, complete with lots of bubble wrap for continued entertainment... Thank you Zookal

Amazing, cheap books and speedy delivery.

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 10, 2017

I purchased three books through Zookal, and saved $117 on the parcel. I ordered my books late on Thursday afternoon, and the delivery occurred on Tuesday. They are exactly as were specified, I am very happy and have recommended them to a friend and would happily recommend them to anyone else.
The university bookshop ran out of the required texts, so almost the entire class still doesn't have their books, but anyone who has ordered through Zookal has theirs already....

Easy to deal with and the best prices!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 08, 2017

I have managed to order my university books through Zookal a number of times now and the transactions have been smooth and hassle free. The ordering process is simple and I have not had an occasion yet where the book I have needed has been out of stock. The prices online are the cheapest I have been able to find and even better it is an Australian based company. Keep up the great work Zookal!

I'm Impressed!!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 03, 2017

I ordered a university text book on a Wednesday and it was delivered the following Tuesday. Given there was a weekend in between, I thought this was pretty good. I received a total of 7 emails informing me of the progress of the order. Both the price and the service were great!
I was a little wary as I hadn't used Zookal before, but their reviews were good. The next week I bought another book! Happy to use them again.

Amazing service and delivery

Zookal were super fast with my textbook delivery and also had free shipping over $50 which meant I saved a few dollars. Really good and affordable pricing of their textbooks. 10/10 would recommend to others!

I Will never buy my textbooks through the university store again

5 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 21, 2017

After going through the university store and trawling most second hand book swaps, I couldn't find the text books that I needed without forking out $550 - $450. I read some reviews online about Zookal and decided I would give them a go. I got my two textbooks delivered today after a very short three day wait for $250. Although you can tell they are second hand, they are good quality. I would never buy my books through any other website again.

Great prices plus fast shipping

5 out of 5, reviewed on Feb 17, 2017

Zookal had the best prices I could find on all 4 of my textbooks and they were all in stock. Free delivery on orders over $50 meant I could order as my book lists came out for each subject. I ended up placing 2 orders, one Thursday and one Friday, both orders were delivered on Monday! I do live in Sydney, where they seem to be based, so that might have contributed to the speed of delivery. Overall, very happy!

Wrong book delivered

4 out of 5, reviewed on Aug 29, 2016

Ordered an accounting standards reference book a few days before my exam, was meant to arrive day before to give me plenty of time to highlight etc. When the package arrived it included a Psychology text book instead of what I'd ordered. Won't be ordering textbooks within days of exam again but Zookal thankfully fixed the situation by refunding me the price I paid and sending me the correct book.
