THE NILE - No Supply, Dropship, etc

Post by ionet » Fri Mar 06, 2015 5:26 am

_

There appears to be quite a repetitive ongoing river of 'No Can Supply',
'Sorry, Out of Stock' , 'Dropship from elsewhere other than Australasia' and shipping outside
the advised terms being reported on this large TM Book Retailer


Regardless of free shipping or shipping from Australia to NZ the
emerging pattern of their very poor stock control and coming up with
'Sorry No Stock' after being paid should be a concern for anyone
looking at buying from them

ranidem (83 ) 27/2/15 thenile was the seller (#844125851)

Surprised I even got the book, 17 days after i paid! Bad experience, was a mistake buying from the nile, not happy at all. Would never buy anything of here again! Just a huge waste of time.
kerrydagirl (20 ) 26/2/15 thenile was the seller (#842353828)

I was less than impressed with the seller. When purchasing this book I was told 1-2 to dispatch 2-3 for delivery and thought sweet will have it next week but no it took 2 weeks for this book to arrive I needed it a.s.a.p paid for it In full straight away yet was mucked around not very happy at all :(
steelydanfans (16 ) 26/2/15 thenile was the seller (#834050799)

Took far too long. Communicuation poor. False info given to me. How can a book sent from BELGIUM comply with trademes rules to restrict trade to NZ and Australia only.
lori.rockchic (612 ) 25/2/15 thenile was the seller (#841134977)

Trade didn't go through as not enough stock however trader did advise of this and refunded immediately
mears69 (204 ) 24/2/15 thenile was the seller (#845306741)

I really hate it when traders are not honest with their delivery time frame, 2 weeks is a bit longer than 3-7 days!! And 2 weeks is how long it's been since I paid for this book. Will not buy from this store again
mears69 (204 ) 24/2/15 thenile was the seller (#845306742)

Not happy! Almost 2 weeks since I paid for this book and it still hasn't arrived. I have bought things online from Australian companies before and I know it doesn't take this long, baaaaad service
foxfam3 (226 ) 24/2/15 thenile was the seller (#847148046)

Very disappointed, after waiting patiently for my book to arrive I received an email saying that someone forgot to process my order and now they were all out of stock and are not able to get any more. The trader was honest enough to notify me as soon as they realised though and have refunded my money.

tr3a (18 ) 24/2/15 thenile was the seller (#844135620)

Delivery slow... Took 16 days from purchase, considering it only had to come from Australia. At least this book arrived unlike the other one I ordered early last year.
sue-tony (91 ) 23/2/15 thenile was the seller (#840501088)

There was message from TradeMe that I hadn't finished the transaction by paying. Went back in and did that, then realised the message was mistimed, and I had paid twice. I immediately emailed to say only send one, as there was an error. Two days later I got an email to say too late, they'd both been sent. Both arrived at the same time two weeks later.Not impressed. No way they'd been sent when the email reply came.
oldneil (0 ) 22/2/15 thenile was the seller (#835725384)

Have not got it yet Not Good
58524 (819 ) 22/2/15 thenile was the seller (#841152710)

purchased and paid on the 6th know it comes from Australia its 22nd and still no replys to me emails.Still waiting.


mikienee (155 ) 21/2/15 thenile was the seller (#844341528)

Trade was not completed as they had run out of stock and didn't realise this until a week had passed. A refund was given so no major problems
dragonplace (320 ) 21/2/15 thenile was the seller (#838327447)

Paid for but not arrived to date.
dragonplace (320 ) 21/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837679924)

winitiatives (154 ) 21/2/15 thenile was the seller (#842354421)

Hard to contact and no real answers why one book was so quick and the other still hasnt arrived. Ships from different suppliers and has no control once order is placed. I used buynow and not happy with lack of service
sab10 (182 ) 20/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837629784)

Goods finally arrived, 2 weeks later than advised in auction. This trader needs to be more upfront about delivery times - this purchase took over twice the advised delivery time. Doubtful that I would ever trade with them again.


hzk (42 ) 20/2/15 thenile was the seller (#842315928)

Bad experience. Purchased handbook via Trademe and after 11 days I queried when can I expect delivery. First battle was to get to speak to someone on their listed phone number. Their operators were always busy and only after 3 days I could speak to a support person. I was informed the transaction was not imported from Trademe. They promised to immediately expedite the order. The next day I got an email that the handbook is not available and they will refund me. Not happy at all!

ffs (383 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#843689913)

Good book, but I am not happy that no feedback has been placed for me by The Nile for ANY of my several purchases from them over time. I have paid immediately each time by pay now and while I appreciate The Nile will have a high turnover, if they wish to advertise on Trademe they should also be prepared to place feedback for their clients in that medium. Feedback is a indicator of a traders trustworthiness. Not happy.
jbourne2 (5 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837260716)

Enjoying the book thanks. only thing I found was hard to find where it actually says the book was getting shipped from Australia. couldn't find it in the details, and only says free shipping anywhere in nz and located in auckland. This wasn't made aware untill I received an email explaining this. I wouldn't have brought the book as I needed it urgently.

metal_bullet (36 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837703618)

Trade incomplete as item wasn't in stock. Notification received after item was allegedly shipped.

pat5338 (215 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#840653837)

Although I am happy with the book, its packing, and "free" delivery, 19 days from order to arrival is hardly impressive.
mel812 (76 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#840617146)

After 2 weeks of waiting for this book got a credit card refund. No communication about why or what had happened. I had to contact them and they finally told me it had been lost.
transaction2 (60 ) 19/2/15 thenile was the seller (#841134738)

Two weeks later after I made purchase they email me to say book not available! Not happy at all

auntysuz (228 ) 18/2/15 thenile was the seller (#834138001)

Brought on17 Jan, finally received 18 Feb with several unhelpful e-mails to follow up on delivery. CD is great, but I'd be cautious to trade with your company again after a error from distribution department in Australia. Also feedback not placed after payment received so I knew item was on its way. received so I k


chris228 (317 ) 18/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837583564)

Easy trade but yes - as someone else mentioned - you don't see the shipping is from Oz till you get the confirmation (said NZ shipping on advert). Hope the Nile can fix this problem - parcel was therefore late arriving for a birthday.

princesscastle (195 ) 18/2/15 thenile was the seller (#834173499)

The Nile. state that they are in Auckland, but the are in Australia. The postage took a full 4 weeks! I kept chasing them and they would say give it a day or 2.. but 4 weeks is ridiculous! They really should state how slow they are . The book itself was great. and well packaged. But I wont bother dealing with The Nile again unless I have a month or 2 to wait. :(

jorgie (169 ) 18/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837587606)

Still no book. Won this auction nearly a month ago and NEED it for uni (which has started!). I will change this if I receive the book!!



justyman (165 ) 18/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837454414)

Simply a very bad Experience. Very slow delivery, nearly 2 weeks to arrive. Book finally arrived but in very damaged cond, how it would even pass dispatch QA is beyond me. When contacted trader simply get the same generic message sent every day advising "sorry for this, we will shortly advise a address for return" nothing more. I WOULD NEVER DEAL WITH THIS TRADER AGAIN. Suggest you don't either



coconutbuns (49 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#844134952)

Hi - paid for this 6 days ago when will it be delivered? Will change this when book received.



8778barry (30 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#844119515)

The book was not in stock and the transaction was cancelled and my money refunded.



gmburr1 (614 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#839258494)

Hi haven't received book yet, been waiting over 2 weeks. Will change feedback later. Please contact me.

mangoapples (125 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#834124077)

Purchase was refunded, ran out of stock

taz305 (262 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#834040447)

Trade took a lot longer than thought, purchased 22 Jan and received 12 Feb, so a lot longer to wait than said. But in saying that I am happy with the book. If I was wanting in the 2-3 working days like promised I would be a bit more upset.

ttimu86 (1 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#837686080)

Wasn't happy, the book didn't arrive must have been lost in the mail



robbieblayney (3 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#843726307)

no contact made for almost a week until i chased up my book asking when it had been posted.. posted a week after payment and delivery address provided..
bexxx7 (12 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#831949817)

Arrived after over a month and several emails and phone calls


howee2000 (93 ) 17/2/15 thenile was the seller (#831915901)

Took, Aaaaages to arrive tho!?
magdalen1 (10 ) 3/3/15 thenile was the seller (#842315481)

The reason I didn't place feedback was because I didn't get the book as they were sold out and my money refunded.
missypaws (75 ) 3/3/15 thenile was the seller (#848972612)

Not sure whats happened to my parcel I emailed you saying its taken a while to get here no reply I see you have quite a few bad feedbacks from people not getting there items or waiting a long time to receive there item. I should have read your feedbacks first before purchacing .
andy829 (112 ) 2/3/15 thenile was the seller (#841125411)

a good book delivered well out side a reasonable delivery time...disappointed

kapitansteve (304 ) 2/3/15 thenile was the seller (#844112805)

Took them 14 days to delivery the product Poor communication
gracenailedit (88 ) 2/3/15 thenile was the seller (#846407964)

The Nile didn't send textbook until I queried where it was after 7 days. Delivery was stated to be 3-5 days. Received it 11 days later which meant I have been delayed in my study by a week. I received no apology either! Not impressed with service.


bexyy170893 (13 ) 1/3/15 thenile was the seller (#847116536)

Not happy with this sale at all! Ordered and paid for the item (which was then relisted but $20 less than what I paid), told it was shipped from Australia, messaged them 10 days later as it hadn't arrived only to find out it has been lost and they are unable to send a replacement. The fact that I had to message them to find this out leads me to believe that they had no intention of letting me know about this, not to mention that they still have the item listed as avaliable. NOT COOL!
maxtroll (239 ) 28/2/15 thenile was the seller (#841502629)

This took way to long. They should not say they can deliever when they can not. I would not deal with them again
graceeo (131 ) 27/2/15 thenile was the seller (#847934425)

finally got it! very looong wait, longer than my orders from UK & USA. asked if item was in back order in Oz & they order it from here as a customer buys, no clear response. happy it finally arrived. can now gift it for a b-day, couple of days to spare. whew!




All up not exactly a glowing account from some trade reports appearing nor
what most would expect from what should be a Professional Book Retailer
:shock:

and that's only for about 2 weeks.

Anyone's guess on what their prior hidden trading history may include ?
;-)

Re: THE NILE - No Supply, Dropship, etc

Post by CCook76 » Sat Feb 27, 2016 2:56 am

I have had the same problem, the product I ordered was showing as available ($380), 3 days after I placed the order I received an email saying it was out of stock and would take a month to supply.

I contacted the product manufacturer who had it in stock and said they can ship with in 48 hours??

Three weeks later I have had no more contact and no product.

The problem looks like an issue with the manufacturer supplying "The Nile" and not product availability.

I have asked for a refund, and I am waiting..............

I bought a book from thenile in December and it was delivered in ten days, which is reasonable for a dropship operation. They still have around 23,000 listings although the TM link to their website produces a weird "page not found" error.

A Sample of some of the "Issues" Reports for 11 days visible:

My order has still not arrived. I rang the Nile to chase it up on Monday, but have not heard back on its whereabouts yet.
'Lost' my order and if I hadn't followed it up it never would have arrived. On a positive note once I contacted them it didn't take the standard 9 day delivery.
Happy with my purchase but your expected time of delivery is way off.
Good trade even tho i specifically asked if it the book came from nz, getting an answer saying def coming from nz warehouse, then after hitting buynow i get an email saying book is being sent from oz!
delivery took way to long and took nearly 3 wks to receive the book which was alot longer than they said it would take
Purchased on 5th of month arrived on 25th, was expecting 2 weeks tops according to auction details. My book made it here eventually though, now I get to relax and read ... Thanks :)
Very happy.. thank you... but was disappointing that it took just about three weeks to get..Thank you again
Good trader but still have not received my item. I understand it comes from overseas but it is taking far too long to arrive

Extremely long delivery time from aussie-cannot track after leave aus-otherwise a good trade-would only use as a last resort.

Terrible customer service and was sent the wrong book!! Still waiting on returns sticker and refund. Shop elsewhere!!

Poorly package, book arrived with dented corners. Took 14 days to arrive from purchase date. Wouldn't purchase from again.
Got book mint condition took a while no contact pre delivery so emailed after two weeks but book arrived the next day. Some communication would have been good especially for students
.
Very happy with item postage was a bit slow but it did come from the usa
The book arrived...better late than never. Good communication saw the problem solved in no time. Cheers.
had to follow up delivery. Took 3 weeks
slow delivery but happy with my purchase
Took so long to get to me I'd forgotten I bought it but good condition and am all around happy
Turns out the book was not in stock, and I was thankfully refunded my money. I'll probably go to UBS in future… same priced item without the drama.

It took a lot longer than advertised, 3 weeks in the end after i prompted them by email.

I bought this item on 9 Feb.Its now 22 Feb-still no item. Listing says allow max 14 days (23Feb) - but it hasn't even left the US yet!
Happy with book but auction did state it was coming from Auckland but in fact actually came from US. Found this a little misleading but otherwise good trade
found the description of this product on Trademe misleading. Although it talks of the ACCOMPANYING book to the CD, it turns out that the book has to be purchased separately.
Goods did not arrive despite paying for them and emailing

books comes over 15 days
15 days past until the book arrived
Wow. Took AGES for book to arrive. Over 20 days. Very disappointed child watching the mailbox. :(
Still have Not got this What is going on

Good trade but took a really long time to arrive
Very slow delivery. Nowhere in the listing did it mention it was being shipped from Australia. Not cool.
very long delivery time and had to chase it up. But great service once I did thanks
After 3 weeks my book hadn't arrived so contacted them. Turns out they didn't even realize I brought my book so then told me I had to wait another 10 days for it too arrive.
Thank you for the prompt delivery. Unfortunately with book being in only an envelope the cover and book spine was slightly damaged.

Book arrived in great condition. However shipping was very slow. Even allowing the 1-2 days handling, 3-7 days shipping I was told to expect, the book arrived after 13 working days (never mind weekends). Therefore neutral response this time
Still have not received items required bought and paid for 28/01/16 now 19/02/16 where items SHOULD have been here within 4 days Have contacted seller and queried same time frame from 11/02/16 still no items received
Book is great but took nearly 3 weeks to arrive.
Happy I received the book but was a bit damaged . Still good though

Took a little longer than expected to arrive as the book came from Australia instead on Auckland, which we found out after the purchase, but it was well packaged. Good trade.
Very disappointed in this trade. Item was never received. Was told that the book had been sent back to the US after my delivery address was incorrect. Very suspect as I use the same address for everything. The only reason this is not a red face is because I was refunded my money.
Product arrived as advertised however it took longer to deliver as advertised and was not shipped from Australia as advertised
A hard one. It arrived in perfect condition, but took 21 days from payment. Possibly due to their appalling weather, 11 days to reach LAX, several more to get on a flight to NZ.
The book is lovely and arrived in good shape. But the shipping time is longer than easily evident on Trade Me. Vendor did email saying it was shipping from Australia and would take a couple weeks. But I was disappointed as (based on what was advertised) I purchased the book planning it as a gift. It arrived after the birthday.
Item was only shipped after I emailed to see where it was
Pretty poor service on this occasion. After 11 days I emailed them as my item hadn't arrived. Was told a glitch in their system meant it hadn't been sent. Was then told they had sold out!
Took nearly a month to arrive. After a week (when I emailed to check delivery status) I was informed there had been an error and their system hadn't registered my trade purchase. It then took 3+ weeks to arrive. Will not use this seller again and do not recommend them
Book arrived today. Not usual for this company to take so long to process an order.

was a long delay to receive the book but it has arrived. Good condition,thanks
get a lot of my books from the nile,never had a issue till now, 20 days for del bit long,will still get my boks tho
Took an incredibly long time to arrive but the actual product was excellent and wrapped really well.
Disappointed as delivery was very slow and beyond the stated timeframe. I missed a date that I was to give the book as a present. However, I have traded with thenile before and has been excellent but sadly not this time
Item was not delivered in advertised timeframe. Although probably not the fault of the company, it is the reason I will not give a better feedback.
Not the fastest delivery had to ask a few times when this will arrive. Otherwise the book was in great condition.

Good value for money but problem with local delivery. Took 8 days once package arrived in Auckland. Emailed to The Nile but no reply. Very poor customer service/follow up.

It stands to reason that if you increase your listings through TM - then it is expected that you have your systems & operation up to standard to deal with increased volumes.

Sadly it appears that the nile have not and did not ensure that this was the case, as reflects in their recent stats, increased Red and Blue faces and reports

Ordered and paid for book which had three in stock at the time. Shortly after I received a refund without any explanation why. The listing was then removed, so it appears the item was not actually in stock.

Sooo F**King SLOW!! A NZ based (ALK) company can't get a single book sent to me in Rotorua in 14days. wow!

Ordered and paid for book on 29 Oct (it’s now 20 Nov) and it hasn’t left their warehouse. I have sent several emails asking for progress update and keep getting told an expected timeframe for processing which doesn’t get followed through with. I’m now asking for refund.
elvenchild (32 32 positive feedback) 20/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1453624944)

Item was withdrawn after payment but reimbursed.
hlsl (2 2 positive feedback) 19/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1465179558)

Bought item which said they had 3 in stock. All seemed fine, then suddenly got an email from trademe saying my refund had been processed. No explanation. No communication. Because of this transaction, thinking I would be receiving the book, I've now missed out on other auctions where I could've actually obtained the item. Why sell stock you don't have.
zeerocks (246 246 positive feedback) 18/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1458577717)

I wouldn't recommend if you are buying study textbooks. Took nearly 2 weeks to arrive with me having to chase it up.

thb1983 (104 104 positive feedback) 18/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1461716756)

I do not recommend this seller - I purchased the book with pay now and sat back excitedly awaiting its arrival and there was zero communication from the seller and next thing an email from trade me saying a refund had been issued and still nothing from the seller - The very least they could have done was email me and say they are sorry they didn't have it - I then would have done neutral feedback - but in this case I am sorry it has to be negative.
ms.ho (82 82 positive feedback) 18/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1459356002)

Unreliable company with terrible customer service.

Bought an Elf on the Shelf for Christmas in early November and paid using credit card. Received a notification from TRADEME saying that a refund had been issued by the seller. So I can only assume this means they were advertising products when they didn't have the stock. Pretty poor customer service to not contact me directly to let me know.

a second time a refund has been issued no communication. except to say my product was on its way. when I questioned why I am getting a refund they sais because the auction had already finished how could I have pushed 'buy now' if auction had finished. blaming it all on me. not the way to run a business. blaming the customer communicating now that im in the wrong. how bout trying to recifiy the situation but no its my fault.... NOT HAPPY AT ALL

sheree159 (179 179 positive feedback) 16/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1452566244)

post was slow! And I'm a bit disappointed in the condition as I buy lots of books and this book as been opened lots,,, it flips to about 5 different pages easy which don't happen to new books, and light scratches on the cover! maybe your staff like to have lookies! But it's arrived! thank u

Rotten Service

Called Fastway Couriers thrice after receiving alert from The Nile.

The "Delivery Address" has been printed without the name. Fastway Courier made three trips to deliver. The package was not accepted due to missing recipient's name.

I have to now go to Fastway Depot in Onehunga to collect the package.

I would not do any more trading with The Nile. Even the toll free telephone number does not work.

Still haven’t received the book?
lauren150 (26 26 positive feedback) 16/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1467981599)

Do not purchase an Elf on the Shelf from this seller! I will be reporting them to Trademe. I purchased one, paid in full, then received an email saying my purchase was cancelled and I had been refunded.
I emailed them to find out why and was informed the item had been cancelled.
They then re-listed the exact same item again immediately! Not only that, but it has been 3 days now and I am yet to receive my money back.
I know of at least 3 other traders who have had the same thing happen.
trojanhorse (2128 2128 positive feedback) 16/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1465990620)

Pretty disappointed. You advertise a book, I buy then you say you don’t have it in stock. At least you refunded.
gambler_85 (232 232 positive feedback) 16/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1464872479)

Seller did not have item in stock. Issued a refund with no other communication regarding why. Total waste of time.
arian2000 (395 395 positive feedback) 15/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1445313156)

Did not give a reason for non delivery

I never got this beautiful book - but a refund of my $$
wary (217 217 positive feedback) 15/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1447593639)

Nice company but their NZ courier company sucks. Is taking them over 10 days to redirect parcel from depot to letter box, and still no show. Absolutely useless, but the parent company is up to standard, even quite helpful.
blackcat05 (61 61 positive feedback) 15/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1445888558)

Still hasn't arrived. ordered on the 24th Oct. Thats 19 days until I needed it for a gift. Hadn't heard anything by the 9th day so emailed asking when would it arrive. They said there had been a delay in dispatching order. (and didnt bother to tell me this) and it wont make the original arrival date. So that would take an extra 5-10 days! I needed it on the 12th. it is now the 15th of November. (22d since I ordered) and no sign of it. Very poor communication. Terrible shipping.
sagi56 (88 88 positive feedback) 15/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1464489878)

Brought one of the many listings for this product on The Niles trademe listing page and with no communication prior to the refund of my money, i find that my order was cancelled, so i emailed and found out that they dont have any, yet they are still advertising the product for sale! Checked my all my emails and no you didnt inform me at all. I also see this has happened to a lot of other people too. Take the listings off if you dont have the product!!
glueckskaefer (1081 1081 positive feedback) 14/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1450267765)

Item misrepresented in listing. Had expected something much more substantial. At least I got a small refund.
steve411 (1381 1381 positive feedback) 14/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1456019434)

I would love to give you guys a smiley face but after using buy now it took 2 emails and 12 days for my item to arrive, I'm sorry just too long and as I've delt with this trader before the stock standard email just doesn't cut it sorry. But in saying that the item did finally arrive and all was well with it so for that it is a smiley face :-) . Cheers
snowgirl (215 215 positive feedback) 14/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1451433635)

Sale was cancelled and refunded with no communication as to why. Gutted as I’d already told my son the books were coming
natty40 (461 461 positive feedback) 14/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1462109746)

pretty annoyed why have I received a refund. when there has been no communication in regardss to this product. what is going on....
markfit (22 22 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1455760466)

No issues with delivery etc, only issue is with the product itself. I bought the manual so I could service and adjust the valve clearance on my Honda, and its missing basic critical information on the feeler gauge thickness required, and torque settings. Won’t be buying this brand of book in the future.
samlowden3 (2 2 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1447025035)

Finally got it, took 2 weeks to get delivered.. but thankyou!
garven1 (146 146 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1451151475)

Book very water damaged, pages stuck together, took longer than stated to arrive, corner of the book damaged and edges folded. Not a happy customer at all.
phoenix210505 (112 112 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1445829914)

Definately would not recommend this company. Very poor service. 19 days after paying by credit card no goods. Have emailed direct promides delivery but again no goods. Is this company a scam?
decan32 (112 112 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1455700502)

Cancelled, although no explanation as to why, refund received.
jacksonbo (159 159 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1455086160)

can you please follow this order up. it hasn't arrived
farm4eva (585 585 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1446053708)

they didn't have the book, I didn't get any emails from them until I asked where the book was, after my inquiries they refunded my money. Poor communication and poor service to advertise a book they don't have and only refunded my money when I made inquires
christa74 (140 140 positive feedback) 13/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1451799856)

Unfortunately did not receive...just got a notification of refund of payment from Trade Me, thank you.
persil1 (160 160 positive feedback) 12/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1444073893)

All bad feedback is the same, and mine, too: No book, no communication. I complain--instant book, instant communication. NILE has staffing or systems problems.
scott115 (270 270 positive feedback) 12/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1438007974)

This book has not arrived to my location as of yet. Could you please inform me on its whereabouts?
gfoll (2322 2322 positive feedback) 12/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1441762880)

Don't recommend this seller - Terrible delivery time - extremely slow - item arrived 10 days later than the companies estimated delivery date
blueangel84213 (63 63 positive feedback) 10/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1457821418)

Money got refunded with no explanation, was really looking forward to getting this for my child! I can still see them for sale so not sure why the money was refunded, I purchased it by ‘buy now’
thattf2guy (14 14 positive feedback) 10/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1442851821)

They ran out of stock and have not given the refund they promised weeks ago
tuidog1 (136 136 positive feedback) 9/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1426114875)

Book finally arrived but very disappointed in the time it took to do so. Might never have arrived if i hadn't contacted them! Did ask for them to courier another copy ASAP (was going away and needed it) and I would have sent back the one that took ages to arrive but they wouldn't do this to keep me happy.
nikisaur (63 63 positive feedback) 9/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1438891509)

Promptly refunded me saying they were out of stock saying "Unfortunately we have run out of stock of this item and it was not removed from Trade Me fast enough." but they never removed the item listing. I informed them of this but it's still showing as available 3 weeks later. I'm happy with the quick refund but poor form in listing management
marmin (282 282 positive feedback) 9/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1450389712)

Trade was cancelled by seller as they were unable to supply. Disappointing.
gruntzgal (682 682 positive feedback) 9/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1421708354)

Arrived as stated after a couple of weeks .However several emails and over a month before receiving a refund for the second book that never turned up.
gargin (176 176 positive feedback) 9/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1453607330)

Poor, Nile were listing items that were not in stock.
On the positive side they did process a refund quickly, but them failed to communicate why they issued a refund until I contacted them.
They were still listing the item after I contacted them
wrfjockey (156 156 positive feedback) 8/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1437347333)

Pretty disappointing transaction. Despite their location showing as Auckland, I overlooked that the description said the book will ship from Australia. But in fact it ended up shipping from the US. it took more than 3 weeks to arrive, my son was terribly upset with the delays. Seller did refund me $5 for the wait, but not worth the disappointment for my son.
russell142 (101 101 positive feedback) 8/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1452680071)

Book arrived by courier in new condition. However inside of book is coming away from binding/spine and I would advice that you check the inside spine of your stock.
nodoubt (863 863 positive feedback) 8/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1438748688)

got email from trademe to say refund given.. NO email from the seller to tell me they didn't have it. Very poor customer service
dorisandnoddy (190 190 positive feedback) 7/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1452687981)

Friendly communications & usually efficient, but dropped the ball this time. As the book will not arrive in time for us to give it as a birthday present & further, won’t arrive within the rather lengthy timeframe they give themselves, we have requested they cancel this trade & refund our money.
islatrade (11 11 positive feedback) 6/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1436981752)

This is liars page.don't trust it
barbara138 (424 424 positive feedback) 6/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1432426187)

Not very impressed with this company unfortunately. Brought a book for a birthday gift and waited nearly a month for its arrival, only to finally inquire via email and find out that it was not in stock, and I had already unknowingly been refunded the money weeks ago without any communication on their part. This is the second time a situation like this has occurred so I probably won't be buying from the company again. Sorry! :(
jewia (241 241 positive feedback) 5/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1439563086)

Book was in great condition when it arrived, but unfortunately the delivery was a bit slow, 4 days past their maximum delivery time... Just frustrating as it was for a gift (Which I missed). Would rather them just out down a longer delivery time
moose0002 (185 185 positive feedback) 5/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1434067081)

Worst trader ever! Told me product was unavailable after I'd hit the buy now so I bought from another trader. When I asked for a refund I was told me the product was available...I told them I didn't want it but it was "too late because it's been sent". Then it never arrived and trader told me it had been delivered 2 weeks ago but it was only delivered yesterday! I don't believe it had been sent when they said it had and they just told me lies. I would never recommend this trader to anyone!

Received email they didn't have my book i stock, so I would get reimbursed - but I didn't get my money back and suddenly book arrived anyway (after I bought the book some somewhere else) I then had the hassle of discussing with them and then returning a book I thought was cancelled - annoying amount of time used!!

lucette (104 104 positive feedback) 3/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1419685677)

The original order AND the replacement order, never arrived despite using different addresses. Another order I placed never arrived either. Will never use again. Communication OK, just didn't deliver the product (they were speciality books). A six week muck around for books I really needed and now have to re-source.
noctilu-k (5 5 positive feedback) 3/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1438877584)

Didn't realize the book was coming from the US so it took about over 3 weeks to arrive . Got the book in the end so I'm happy
julz134 (114 114 positive feedback) 5/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1447695885)

This was not sent as out of stock , refunded ????
cherylelp4 (52 52 positive feedback) 5/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1464277192)

Finally my book has arrived in perfect condition and it is just what I wanted. I did have to wait for a very long time for it to arrive though. Once I contacted The Nile it soon arrived. Thankyou. I hope the delay was just a oncer. Would use again.
redlippy1 (309 309 positive feedback) 5/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1471038386)

Paid for this book 2 weeks ago today, according to the listing allowing for max handling and delivery times I should have it by now. Looking at tracking details its still sitting in America. Will go back to using Booktopia much more reliable and quick.
zakky16 (446 446 positive feedback) 5/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1477400503)

Trader unable to supply book although listed on Trade Me. Refund was given. Very disappointed as spent ages sourcing this book.

One book arrived along with one wrong book.customer service were unable to help much and said they would send out self add envelope first before they would send me the correct book.a lot of time and hassle! Missed kids birthday & prob will miss xmas too.very disappointed.
artworks1 (252 252 positive feedback) 4/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1471909568)

Two weeks on from placing the order and have still not received it.
How hard is it to put a paperback book in the mail?
Unlikely to trade with this outfit again.
sarahmcw (37 37 positive feedback) 4/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1458350079)

Completely unacceptable - I specifically chose his book because of the 1 week arrival time claimed in the description to arrive in time for a present. It’s been one month now and still not arrived.
dadda2 (0 0 positive feedback) 4/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1463553201)

The book arrived with black smudge marks on the cover as it hadn't been packed with a protective wrapping.
tracal70 (98 98 positive feedback) 3/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1462109746)

Sale not completed as item was not available. Recieved refund but had to contact seller as was confused as to what was happening! Took over a week to find out what happened to my purchase!
ballynahinch (40 40 positive feedback) 2/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1462516110)

The book arrived in great condition, but it took far longer than I expected.
emma16 (5181 5181 positive feedback) 2/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1452621258)

After being so good for a long time a grumpy face for The Nile. Missing book purchased a month ago. Have you changed your courier? Use to be able to be delivered to a PO Box. Their only solution was to advise me to contact Fastaway Couriers who appear not to have any customer service.. Would have been decent of The Nile to contact them themselves to follow up.

her_deals (84 84 positive feedback) 1/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1460911142)

Purchased and paid for this book on the 14th November. Still has not turned up.
Seller has stated via email that the book is coming from the states.
clr82 (19 19 positive feedback) 1/12/17 thenile was the seller (#1459379909)

Completely missed stated delivery period, although product as described. Paid and provided delivery details immediately, then had to prompt contact with seller over a week later. Delivey had yet to be initiated. Pity.

I received a refund for this book.
I'll have to presume I'm not getting it as I haven't received any replies to my emails.
potae112 (98 98 positive feedback) 30/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1451110417)

weird trade. got a refund but no explanation
bp21 (15 15 positive feedback) 30/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1459890775)

The seller was very friendly, but for some reason had listed a book that he didn't have, so I never got it. I got my money back immediately, though.
northernlight (55 55 positive feedback) 30/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1460841158)

This didn’t proceed, I found a refund in my account a day or two later, item must have been out of stock. A message from the seller would have been nice though.
trader24 (25 25 positive feedback) 30/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1462109746)

Did not receive my purchase, no explanation very poor communication. However did receive a refund.
surfie_chick14 (431 431 positive feedback) 29/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1469321582)

Advertised delivery dates o auction are completely wrong. After filing a dispute with trademe because my item had not arrived and the seller was not replying to emails I was then told that it would be another 4-6 business days before being delivered, so this doubled the delivery time that was advertised! Totally unacceptable especially when buying as a gift.

genius037 (81 81 positive feedback) 29/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1451466540)

You guys need to be a little more honest with your description... The last two occasions I've ordered books from The Nile they've both been listed as being delivered from their Australian warehouse. Both were shipped from Jersey not Australia which have involved significant delivery delays (the first one took over a month!)... Wont be bothering again...
nellyfant (86 86 positive feedback) 29/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1460908634)

I never actually got the item. The trader cancelled the transaction and refunded me without any explanation. This seems to be quite a common thing with this trader so trade at your own risk!!
lucanpucan (122 122 positive feedback) 29/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1473730626)

WATCH OUT FOR THIS SELLER!! DOES NOT HONESTLY LIST ITEMS WHAT HE/SHE IS SELLING IS NOT IN NZ AND THEY DON'T PUT IT IN THE DETAILS. WHEN YOU QUESTION THEM THEY STILL DONT TELL YOU. THEY ARE LIARS AND SHOULD NOT BE TRADING ON HERE UNLESS IT IS IN THEIR POSSESSION AND READY TO SEND TO BUYER!!!
jack28 (451 451 positive feedback) 29/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1443786643)

This book took a ridiculous amount of time to reach me. I could of ordered myself direct from the U.S & it would of arrived quicker. Arrived eventually

marsh1971 (62 62 positive feedback) 28/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1467747418)

Eventually refunded - Advertising items they dont have..... But had use of my money in the meantime.


jonboy6 (63 63 positive feedback) 27/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1468367854)

Absolutely no communication until prompted with an email. Over a week for delivery from Auckland to Welington. Definitely would not trade again. John.
shakebc (12 12 positive feedback) 27/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1453432471)

fredee (105 105 positive feedback) 27/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1456890427)

Very disappointed. After checking on delivery of my item after 10days I was provided a $5 refund for the inconvenience. Then a couple of days later were told this item is no longer in stock, yet it was still being advertised on the website as available to order. After several communications to get to the bottom of the issue I was given a full refund. It is still frustrating that the seller is still advertising the item on Trademe.
saddles (351 351 positive feedback) 27/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1459139396)

Took nearly 2 weeks. Didn't send it until they were contacted to find out where it was. Then they sent it slow mail not courier and totally missed birthday.
yeti68 (1119 1119 positive feedback) 26/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1459351371)

Purchased from the Nile and Booktopia on the same day - Booktopia provided excellent customer service & kept me updated & I received my order well ahead of my order from the Nile. The Nile on the otherhand was totally lacking in any customer care, book delivered after date advised in auction & I had to chase for dispatch date etc with some emails going unanswered - for this reason I now only deal with Booktopia.
kelso28 (57 57 positive feedback) 26/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1459346799)

Poor experience.wrong book received.when i rang customer service they couldnt provide timeframe on when correct book would be received.person kept saying i needed to refer to email.
They wont send out correct book until ive sent the wrong one back and its been received.and insist on sending me an envelope to do this with which will probably take a week to get or more with xmas post.the childs book will miss her birthday and probably xmas too ! Not happy

o4u2nv (770 770 positive feedback) 26/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1449509665)

Book arrived eventually, I stopped counting how many days had past. Book arrived damaged. The Nile were meant to send a return package and replace product. One month later and no return package or emails replied to. Out of pocket with a broken book for Christmas. Won’t be trading again.

perza9 (75 75 positive feedback) 26/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1454287409)

I had to chase up the status of this book a few times and it was finally delivered nearly 3.5 weeks later. If that was advertised originally in the trade I wound have sourced my book elsewhere. Communication was polite but instigated my me. Overall I found this trade a bit stressful. The book is in good order and what I expected.
carol5815 (49 49 positive feedback) 26/11/17 thenile was the seller (#1452974101)

I just got reminded by Trade Me to place feedback for this trade but I haven't received the book yet...

Book arrived, Pen had no tip attached, was dried out, emailed-asked for a pen sent thru, as book is useless without a pen, Email response from them was either a partial refund on product or full refund if product returned. I then emailed and asked for a full refund...Emailed response from them, I am now getting a partial refund and I am stuck with book that is no use. NOT HAPPY WITH TRADE. I emailed back and waiting for a response. If further resolved i am happy to alter feedback

It took 14 business days (2.5 real time weeks) to get across Auckland! I believe it was only posted when I sent a follow up email and then it took 7 business days to arrive after that. Give yourself plenty of time if ordering an item for Xmas. I am happy with the item purchased.

No communication about the order. Book turned up after 9 days. Compare with Aus retailer I bought from on the same day...instant email to confirm order, follow up email the next day to say it had shipped, book in my hands within 7 days.
Won't necessarily put me off trading again, but you need to lift your game on comms guys.

Delivery was slightly delayed but otherwise a good trade.

I had a completely negative experience attempting to purchase 'Western Australia Road & 4WD Track Atlas NEW'. After placing my order my credit card was immediately charged. After 9 days I called to find out where my book was. I got "oh, sorry, it seems there's been a problem". After another week I started emailing and continued to receive "sorry we're looking into it". After more than 3 weeks I finally got a refund with no explanation. Needless to say I cannot recommend using this seller.

Will not be using this seller again. After 2 weeks I emailed them to see where book was and was told it hadn't left yet. Was going to take a week more. Emailed after that week and requested a refund if it had not left yet. Received a refund so I guess they either didn't have it to begin with or their staff are useless.. Not happy at all withthis seller

DO NOT BUY off this seller!! I purchased a book and paid for it using pay now. The next day the money was credited back to my account with no communication. After 30 mins on the phone they told me book was out of stock and yet they still have 2 other copies listed on trademe. Manager was suppose to call me with 24 hours, didn't happen. I had to call them back, they still state it is out of stock. They have 1654 negative feedback postings so how can this among of people be wrong.

Annoyed to say the least, Purchased this book days ago along with 2 others just to receive a random refund without any explanation whatsoever, even though there is other auctions for the exact book showing there is in fact still stock remaining. Will never bother with this store again.

Bad luck again! After my last experience with this company they emailed trying to put it right and say sorry it was one off and then it happens again a week later - extremely disappointed - just a refund issued - no email to say sorry we cant send it - i dont know why they waste their time - listing products they dont even have
