When you sell name brand products, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Let’s take a closer look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the past 12 months, Sandy Books Store has received about 22,000 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 10% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though Sandy Books Store is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers.
Sandy Books Store used to be known as BRILANTI BOOKS on Amazon, but their name has recently been changed. They currently ship from Florida.
There isn’t too much more information available about them online, other than their Amazon seller profile. If you are looking for a Sandy Books Store website, you won’t find one.
Sandy Books Store has a 30-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having a month to do so is quite convenient.
12/27/2017 UPDATE: When this review was original written on Jun 5, 2016, this seller, then known as BRILANTI BOOKS, was actually a reputable seller. Based off of their recent feedback, I’m not sure how much longer they will be allowed to sell on Amazon. Their recent name change might also have something to do with this.
There are certain seller performance thresholds that you have to meet when selling on Amazon. Larger volume sellers have more leeway, and that is the reason why their store is still active on Amazon. However, at this rate, they will not be an active Amazon seller for much longer. They went from selling over 2,500 items per month, to under a 1,000. Given that books are not a seasonal item, that is a drastic decrease.
Over the past 90 days, they have a 17% dissatisfaction rate, which then climbs to 32% over the past month. I would assume that bump is from the increased holiday sales volume.
Having been a seller myself, I know things happen. Sometimes you’re sick, and can’t ship. Sometimes your shipping employee(s) abruptly quit, and you can’t ship on time. These things happen, so I won’t pass judgement just yet. I would however suggest that you hold off from purchasing from this store until their performance improves.
If you take a click on the link above, and take a look at their recent feedback history, the negative comments are all about their ship time, not the products themselves. Some buyers have commented about the transaction going smoothly, but many other report either not receiving their item, or receiving it very late. If this was a store selling expensive items, you would assume that they are just trying to scam people. But they sell books. You would have to scam a whole lot of people to make money that way.
My best guess, having no knowledge about their actual business, is that either they decided to expand their business without the proper support in place, or they had a holiday boom, and just could not service the increased demand. They also could be experiencing employee issues. Every business in the world deals with employee problems.
I’ll keep an eye on things, and update this post if their performance improves. For now, I would advise you to just skip this Amazon seller.
