Very good for hard-to-find CDs. Some unnecessary trouble with sellers, and also orders from the US over the years have taken than 2 months to arrive when ordered through Alibris. But a good resource.
I am so fed up with websites that change my 'Delivery' or 'Billing' information to something else AFTER I've entered it CORRECTLY. I had to enter details 3-4 times to get both categories (in different countries) to be how they needed to be. I AM so sick of taking over an hour to order 2 books. These glitches have happened largely at at Used Book bookstores! What is it? Driving me mad! Next time, I'll pay full price and give my business to Waterstones!

Difficult to find item. Found with barcode.
Alibris has a huge offer of used books at a convenient price. I have found here several difficult-to-find or expensive book which are in good conditions and perfectly useful.
Just one suggestion. It would be convenient to expand the payment options with, for example, Paypal or other non-credit based options.
Because I fount the book I was looking for cheaper than in other bookshops.
Great! Thanks so much - appreciated.
Because it pays tax, unlike Amazon, and treats its employees with respect and dignity, unlike Amazon. In general I try to support ethical businesses and in particular I aim to back independent booksellers.
Straight forward however would like more information on the shipping.
The dealer Blackwell say standard shipping is free but Alibris charge. Would like to know why. If Blackwell ships the book it appears I am paying for postage already covered. More clarification would be helpful if it means through Alibris the delivery time is quicker hence the charge. Apart from that I am pleased with the user friendly site navigation.
You contacted me with the voucher offer. A good move!
A pleasure looking for old books. Always arrive beautifully packaged. Never had any problems.
Able to find an author whose books I first encountered in Rhodesia.
Excellent as always, though I see shipping costs more, so it would be useful if Alibris could provide a list of sellers that offer discounts for multiple orders.
Because I try to avoid using Amazon for a range of reasons, then my many previous experiences with Alibris have always been good.
Found what i wanted here after a long search and at a very good price. Thank you alibris
Had what i was looking a long time for
Generally extremely pleased with alibris - have ordered numerous books in last few years!
I had to click the Order Now button twice today - I think it was because I had not agreed to cookies - I think there should be an option to disable non-essential cookies - I hope my order is NOT duplicated!
My own past positive experience!
Clean, easy to use basket. Would appreciate PayPal but not essential, I understand they can be robbing bastards with their fees. Thanks for selling used books and not being Amazon, you beautiful people.
Partly that you're not Amazon, but also that you have reasonably priced books.
Alibis always has the books I want at the prices I like, thanks
For value for money
I love Alibris! I'm from a country in the European Union and Alibris allows me to find affordable English books that I wouldn't be able to find otherwise.
It may be difficult to deliver every order on time due to COVID-19, but Alibris is still client-oriented. I appreciate their effort to keep the good work during this difficult time. Thank you!
Ok wanted to change address details as spelling mistake on Chruch which should be Church Lane but system wouldn't let me. Please change manually.
Didn't want to use Amazon
Simple and smooth so far! Good selection of books and I could see the cost in my own currency, SEK, which was nice!
I wanted an international bookseller that wasn't connected to Amazon.
Well set out website made it very easy to find the books l was looking for, great prices and fast efficient check out
Great prices and choice
I love alibris... all my family and friends use it as a source for books we think we will never find!
I trust them
Great except a technical error with the website but that might be because i was inactive for too long
Nice and simple for an old rocker with absolutely no modern technology experience. Very quick and easy to follow
You have got all the right kind of music for me and the prices are great
Searching for books is fine. Have you signed Peter Hitchens books? I only found one, but an older edition.
£3 off voucher. Looking for books I've seen reviewed recently.
Very impressive; I haven't used alibris for some years and am pleased that your high standard has been maintained.
Found what I wanted in 30 seconds, 66% the price at Amazon, ordered, payed, all done in 2 mins.
It's the first time I order, so far everything is satisfactory and I got a prompt reply to an inquiry email.
Because the books I was after were available.
